I recently took my 95 yj to a local shop to have a leaking brake line replaced. It was the line that ran to the back right tire. How long should that take? I even supplied the premade line. They are telling me 10 hours.. thanks
Are they telling you it is 10 hours out of "the book" or that it took them 10 hours? If they are saying it is out of the book, make them show it to you.
If they are saying that it took 10 hours, then ask them if they broke the connection trying to get it off.
When dealing with mechanics, always find out how they are going to charge you. If it is going to be "out of the book" (which it almost always is with good shops), then they should not have a problem showing it to you before hand.
If they where to mine the minerals, smelt, do magic metallurgy stuff, form the steel tube, bend the lines, add the fittings, flair the ends, remove the old line, install the new line, bleed, test drive......then maybe ten hours would seem reasonable.

I would make them brake it down for what they had to "pull off" to get the job done because it shouldn't have taken anywhere near 10 hrs or had to take much off to fix it. That seems sketchy at best and would never use that shop again.......
