Default lower tcase gears

I'm looking at a set of 4.0 or 4.7:1 gears for the back case in my doubler. The trail gear set is ~ $100 cheaper than the ones from Marlin. The pic at Marlin shows a stronger looking setup than AA has. I'm assuming that the trail gear are similar or worse in strength than the AA units. Anyone have any experience with any of these gear sets?

As you can probably tell, I'm leaning towards the Marlin set, but I want to be sure I'm getting the best product. I don't want to deal with these ever again. Thanks.

.. both trail gear and marlin are based in fresno (seperated by about 2miles of road in fact) .. ive been to both places marlin's place is hectic to say the least.. i honestly dont think there would be that much of a difference in which set you go with as far as strength goes.. if you are that concerned i suppose you could send them off to bobby long and have them cryo'd ..

I'm not terribly concerned and I'm positive I don't need them cryoed. I'm just interestedin doing things once and doing them right. If $100 would get me a much stronger product now, it's cheaper than dropping 350 now and 450 in a year or two if the first gears break.

I don't wheel that hard and I'm easy on the gas, so maybe this is a dumb question. I'm just a big fan of doing it once and doing it right. Too often I buy someone's bastard project and have to redo everything. I've got a very solid truck this time around, so I want to keep it that way.
