Ring and pinion installation

Looking to have someone that is close to me (Orting) install front and rear gears in my 1994 gmc. I already purchased the 4.88 gears and install kits. Most places I’ve called won’t do it because I didn’t buythe parts from them. Any help is appreciated!

I had Leavitt Automotive Service(George's friend Rod Leavitt owns the shop) down in Lakewood do my Dakota's gears with the rear still in the truck.  They used my parts I supplied from Randy's R&P, I also had them replace u-joints while there and I had a leaky left rear wheel cylinder. 

I had trouble finding someone to use my parts also.  I had about $1,500 into all that including shop time, U-joints, 1 wheel cylinder, and my parts(new 3.55 gears, USA Gear install kit, 2 crush sleeves..just in case, 2 pinion nuts...just in case, 2 wheel bearings, 2 axle seals, new C-Clips, 2 qts. gear oil)...I didn't have the time to do it on my daily driver at the time.  They got it right the first time, smooth and quiet,and gave me 1 pinion nut and 1 crush sleeve back in a bag.
