WOW!!! I definently would not have had it done.Its all done now and it took only about 2 and half hours of my time.If you had done it yourself in some spare time, it would only cost you 250$ saving 1100 towards something else you want.

I'd do it myself before i'd pay anywhere near that much, but thats because I dont have that much money, but i'd still do it myself anyways.

It was that quick? of course there isn't much to do, but the tranny being heavy would be the hardest part getting it down and back up in place. I think my brother paid about 400-500 bucks to get the slave replaced in his ranger a few years ago.

Mine was free since everything was already removed for the engine swap =]

The dealer didn't tack on any labor charges other than flywheel resurfacing. I got no charge labor on the clutch, slave, and pilot bearing
