So I got all the parts needed, and have been a bit wary of trying this repair myself. Anyway, gotten a few quotes and they're just ridiculous.
3 different places have quoted me $1200 to $1400, LABOR only.
I laugh and say its a 4 hour job, to which 3 places in a row have now said "For a non-SC 2wd, yes its 4 hours. For a Supercharged 4x4, its listed as a 13 hour job."
So uh, my question is, WTF?! Is this true?? Does anyone know where they might be looking to get this info, and can anyone who's done a belt on an SC'ed 4x4 tell me how long it actually took? I thought I was looking at like $250, which I'd be OK paying. The numbers I'm getting are just stupid though...
4 hours is my normal. I've done one in 2.5 hours before, but they were replacing their radiator at the same time so I didn't take the time to clear out the fins on the old unit, just swap everything over.
I charge $300 for the job. But I do it at my house with air tools. I take the front tires off to get the front end down so it's a ton easier (no stepping on stools to get over the support).
|Hell, it might be worth it to drive out to Denver and have me do it. Order a kit from Courtesy and have it shipped to me. I think you'd still save money. You can stay at my place, we have plenty of room. You can time me.|
