Xj Am I getting a good deal?

I live in alaska so i realize that prices are different. but i found out i'd be paying about $200 on shipping. I got a quote on getting gears and a rear locker installed. He said $2346 with 4:10 gears and an arb locker in the back. that doesn't include wiring up the compressor. Also I need a open diff case for the front he said cost 150. What did some of you guys pay for a setup like that?

BTW it would be $2055 instead of $2346 with a detroit locker instead.

That sound about right to me. I paid $300 per axle for the gear/ARB install, bought my own gears and install kits for around $500 (Dana/Spicer and Ford Motor Sports) and the 8.8 ARB was around $800 or so, IIRC. I'd also specifiy LubeLocker gaskets as you can reuse them--you'll be doing a fluid change after the 500 mile break in period (I would hope).
