Which ring and pinion manufacture?

There is so much re boxing going on between the manufacturers/distributors I am finding it difficult to decide which brand to go with.

I need to replace the ring and pinion in my 2009 Sterling/Visiton Super Duty Axle. The axle uses a 3.55 31 spline pinion.

I have read that Hobbs method of cutting gears yields almost perfect teeth uniformity compared to milling.

Of the manufacturers I have learned about and the average price:
AAM is one manufacturer who makes their products in the USA; and is supposed to be using Hobbs cutting. ~$350
Motive Gear are made in Italy and come with the pinion bearings. ~$300
US Gear does not make a gear set to fit my application.
Yukon does not make gear sets, only re boxes other manufacturer’s products including those from China.~$280
USA Standard are made in India and are the cheapest in price.~$180

Does anyone have more information or experience with the different manufactures?

Are you looking for stock size? If so, i would stick with Ford. They go together the best. Check out Sunrise Ford in Fontana, CA. They have the cheapest shipped prices in the USA.
