Re-installing Damaged Stock Gears

After I lifted my truck, I re-geared the truck to 4.56's since I was hauling about 16k lbs at the time. Now I'm not towing anything above 10k and that's once in a while. Mostly driving my truck as my daily now since it's paid for, anyway I had my gears done at 4wheelparts and kept the stock gears. I never looked at them after they were taken out until now. It seems the guy that did the install wasn't that great with a grinder and cut some gouges in the pinion gear. My question for you guys, would you re-install these?

I can not begin to imagine how or why this would have happened, but no, I wouldn't put it back in.

Nope, if it was just that one cut in pic #3 then ok. But the teeth are actually cut on the face which leaves a weak spot. The slice where he most likely cut the bearing off is right on the stress point as lateral stress is created from the pinion gear

I would not run those gears. They are only good for the scrap pile.

If CNY6.5TD were to see this thread, I think he'd have a heart attack.

Thanks guys. I didn't think they were any good either but the thought crossed my mind that maybe I was being too critical. Maybe I can weld them up into some nice garage art.
