How much does a clutch change cost?

98 Ranger 4.0L 4x4, I'll be swapping to a manual transmission soon and wondering how much it would cost for a shop to do the swap. The pedals and everything would be prepped ahead of time, just pull trans and T/C, remove flexplate and install flywheel and clutch and new trans and T/C and bleed the clutch. Probably get the rear main seal replaced at the same time, but that should be much extra.

I want to do it myself, but I'll be doing it in the backyard, not really worth it to save a few hundred in labor. I'll be calling up different shops, but want some opinions on roughly what it should cost.

I know how to do it, just that I work a lot and probably make more in 1-2 days to pay somebody else to do it haha.

Its compliocated to do though, takes alot of fine tuning and some specific tweaks.

When I bought my Spec Stage II Clutch Kit, I had to go in and get my transmission rebuilt anyway, so I brought it in for $600, and they put the clutch kit in for free along with a slave cylinder I had purchased.. It was good for me, and they said it was -much- easier on them, since they had new parts to work with :-)
