Any Mid TN area shops w/ reasonable regear prices?

I have been planning to pay for a regear from a friends father @ $100/axle as long as I had the gears etc. I have the gears for by 2 axles, which are not under the Jeep yet, but that fell through due to health issues. I checked with TN offroad, and was quoted, with my gears & master install kit $350 an axle, which I think is high. I checked with Essentially offroad in Murfreesboro & was quoted $375 with my items.

I was also looking at getting some brackets welded onto my 8.8 since I don't have a decent welder, and was quoted $350/$375 respectively. Now I assume these are "I don't want your business" quotes, but is this standard for the area? I would do it myself, but I am not experienced enough to go tearing into something that I have to trust so much with my learning.

Ideally, I would like to get in touch with a shop that will allow me to watch, and even help would be awesome (not for a price discount, but for experience), if anyone knows a shop around the area like that. But as long as they get done soon, I don't need a learn as we go option, it's just a plus.

Thanks for any help on this.

TOR did mine back in 2006. But I bought the gears and lockers through them. I think I paid $1,000 for the gears + install (lockers were extra of course). They've been 100% problem free too.

Keep moving forward. But keep an eye on history, for if you don't, you are doomed to repeat it.
