well, figure 65 plus an hour...it'd take a regular joe about 4 hours...you're looking at a minimum of around 500.

Get a guy who knows jeeps well, it'll take him less him (I have a guy who can swap an auto to a manual in 3 hours) and the time will be less, but he charges 100 an hour.

A complete clutch Luk clutch kit from www.dialaclutch.com/ is only $160. It includes everything... clutch disk, pressure plate, throwout bearing, pilot bearing, and pilot shaft. Don't let the shop talk you into a Centerforce clutch kit, they are WAY more expensive than they should be and they have no benefit over the Luk clutch kit. The factory even installs Luk clutches.

Clutch job for TJ's book for 5 hours. Most shops will do it in less though.

Most shops also mark up the parts cost as well. Sometimes almost 100% markup. Helps them make extra on top of the labor costs. Going rate for labor around here is about $80 an hour, so $600-800 doesn't seem unreasonable in my mind. That being said, I wouldn't pay that.

Don't forget that what you can buy the parts for, is NOT what the shop is gonna charge you. The shop is gonna charge List price. This is why most shops wont install parts that you supply. Also, most shops won't charge you actual time. They will instead charge you "Book Time". Meaning, they look up the job in a book and it states x.x hrs. They multiply that by shop rate, viola, you have the labor costs.

This is how most mechanics make their money (or loose their asses) its called flat rate. Say replaceing a clutch takes 4hrs book time. The mechanic gets it done in 2hr. The customer will get charged for 4, and the mechanic gets paid for 4 hrs. (Mechanics typically make 20% of shop rate) So just because the guy can do the swap in 2 hrs, doesnt mean you will get charged for 2 hrs.

Hell, I do alot of side work, and I charge 40/hr and I charge half the difference list vs retail on parts. I make money, and the people get pay almost half of what a shop will charge them. Then again, even the Monroe Muffler down the street is at $98/hr labor.

I'm getting mine done tomorrow (YJ) and they're installing a clutch I bought from Schucks. I'm also getting the whole tranny rebuilt though. They quoted my about 8 hours to pull, fix, and intall the tranny for about $800 dollars labor then another few hundred in parts for the rebuild. told me about $1000-1200 total.

I have a 1988 YJ. I got a quote of $900.00 for parts and labor ( new pressure plate, clutch disk, slave cylinder, pilot bearing) from one shop. Another shop qouted me a labor only rate of $600.00 if I provided all of the parts. I'm in Florida north of Tampa.
