Tj Need to replace front axle u-joint

my mechanic buddy managed to injure himself, i'm looking for someone to replace my jeep's front axle u-joint as i have neither tools nor place to do it myself.

i got the u-joint, i will pay you for labor, please let me know what you'll charge.

i live in Hyde Park, will travel to anywhere in the Chicagoland area and NW Indiana.

thank you!!!

Too bad you aren't near Wauconda, I would be able to remove your axle shafts and take them into NAPA to have U-Joints pressed in for $15 a piece.

Is it an axle or a driveshaft joint?
I live in the city, and have a two jeep garage.

Good. Just check the lugs in a week or two.
