    I wouldn't be surprised at all if you paid $250-300 an end.

    I'm doing mine myself.

    I was quoted $200 rear, $250 front awhile back. It was a pretty good price from what I called around and got. So I would expect those numbers or higher. That is with all my own parts, paying for just the install.

    4WP qouted me 425 for the front and 375 for the rear, labor only.

    good luck trying to do it yourself in a day. it took me several long weekends with my buddy whos a mechanic. mostly causs there were incorrect parts in the install kit. and the fact that we were putting in ARB's.

    i'd say if youve got all the parts, one long weekend should do it.

    Muddysub,

    Call Dan's Driveline there in Vegas. Each time I asked anyone any questions about rearends and driveshaft, they referred me to them. There is a place on Lossee that built my driveshaft for me that does pretty good work too. I think it was called the "Driveline shop" or something like that. The times I dealt with them they were straight up with me. He told me $250-$300 to do my driveshaft, adn he only charged me $200. That was for a CV shaft with 1/2 ton joints. I've never had a problem with it. I hope this information helps out. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
