My dealer is going to put the aberle front bumper and rear with tire carrier on for me. My salesman is going to have a tech do it after hours for me to cut down on the cost. What is a fair price for this?
My dealer has been really cool so far, got my aev hood painted and installed for $120 which is way under what I have heard other people paid, but I just want to make sure I am in the right range.
You must be a very busy guy b/c anyone with a ratchet and some time should be able to install a front and rear bumper, in not too much time, and save the entire cost. I've heard the tire carriers can get somewhat tricky, but even those shouldn't be too bad. A friend as an extra set of hands would be nice, but again, not necessary... (maybe for the rear bumper/carrier if you have to put it on as one unit)
I did my aftermarket front bumper in about an hour, taking my time... I removed and reinstalled the stock rear bumper also when I relocated it to hide a body lift and that took me less than an hour in total (including modifying the mounting points).
I'd say if you had 1/2 day of time (4 hours) you should be able to do a front, rear, and tire carrier, even if you run into problems. With the carrier going smoothly, I'd say 2.5 hours, working at only a moderate pace.
I guess if you are really mechanically challenged and/or have NO time - that would not be a bad price given current shop labor rates.
