I looked up that model number, Grand ZJ, but it looks like the model number you gave wasn't specific enough to research. Cobra has a few models under that with varying options. Also, do you know if it has a weather band? I've been caught out in washes where a weather band could have saved me some stress.

If all you need is the installation, I'm pretty sure the going rate locally is around $80 an hour. On the books, it should be about a two hour job. Start making calls and look for prices below $160.

Agree with the 2 hours, I just replaced my radiator in my wrangler and it took about 1 and half hours after cool down. Add the water pump for another half hour since you'll have a ton of room with the radiator out. Its a pretty easy job to do yourself with a socket set and a driveway.

There you go. Charge him $100. Easy money for you and he gets cheap labor.

I'd offer to do it, but it's too hot out there.

Unfortunately, I did it while I still lived in NC and had a shop at my disposal.

It is too hot for me too, to do that work here and I have nowhere to do it.

I replaced my radiator and thermostat in 5 hours. I did hit some snags with the trans cooler lines though.

If you have the means I'd do it yourself....

It has a lift

Grand ZJ, I sent you PM so we don't need to clutter up this thread more than needed.

I'll be getting myself lost around Bonanza Hill on Tuesday the 4th of October. That's this coming Tuesday. Who has Tuesday off with nothing better to do?

There is plenty to see and do in the area. Lots of wildlife. Great opportunities for photos. My wife and I will be getting into a few mines. Anyone with common sense is welcome to join us in the mines. If you don't have any common sense and are prone clumsiness, you can stay outside and guard the Jeeps.

Who else is in?

It's still early.

I'll be heading over to the salvage yard on Lamb sometime this morning. I don't really need anything. I just like looking through salvage yards.
