Detroit Locker Install, Need Help!!!

Hey guys this is my first post. Ive had my xj for about 2 years now and i have done all the work to it myself. I recently inherited a detroit locker and was going to install it myself but i know its not that simple. I was wondering if you guys know any good jeep mechanics out there that would be willing to install cheaper than a shop. Im willing to pay but not 400 to 500 for what a shop would charge. its a dana 35 rear, 456 gears are already on the locker and i have a new diff cover. anyone out there know a good mechanic?

A "good mechanic" doesn't come cheap.
$350 to $450 is about average for the shops in my area.
You get what you pay for

Don't forget you'll need to do the front too...
Oh wait, I see you are TWO wheel drive. Never mind.

Welcome to the forum.
The XJ tech section is a great resource for how-to help, but I moved your thread to the California section where you'll have a lot better chances of getting some hands-on or local insight.
Good luck with the XJ!

His profile shows Anaheim (30 minutes south of Los Angeles) just as yours shows you to be in Ft. Knox...
