What do I need to have on hand to swap gears? Oil, gear mess dye, new U-joints, gasket? What size C clips are need for the axles? Anything Im forgetting?

A dial indicator to properly set backlash and a hydraulic press to press the pinion bearing on and off to change shims to set your pinion depth. A torque wrench. Good shampoo to get the gear oil out of your hair.

You'll be reusing the old C clips, they don't often become unusable.

if you are going to a 4.10-4.56 gear, you will need a special crosspin to clear the ring gear.
