Yeah I even posted on the NOVA jeepers forums for a wrenching party, but no one seemed to care. I ended up taking it to Scotts OCD off-road shop up in Stamford. He did the 8.8, removed my transfer case drop, installed an SYE and new custom length rear driveshaft for me. He also did a few other things. But for all parts and labor, it was about $2200. Labor was about $1000-1200. Rest was parts.
There was also a guy in Fredericksburg called steves extreame off-road shop. His quote was similar, but the guy was not very helpful. I asked him several times what parts I would need, and etc and he just played it off like I should had known and didn't help me get a parts list together at all. I would recommend Scott to anyone. He did great work at an affordable cost. He is OCD just like the name of the shop. Took 3 weeks to get it done, but that was because of the drive shaft, and I added in replacement front shackles to install last minute.
