  • "HONEST" prices for axle/drivetrain work

    Got a leaking axle shaft seal here (2003 TJ)...looking for mechanic(s) with reasonable prices.

    I live in Plano

    Just Brakes quoted me $95 per hr labor.....and a jaw-dropping 300%-350% mark-up on the parts and diff fluid needed


    The obvious, ideal situation:
    I bring the parts needed...and happily pay for the labor

      Which axle would help in someone's decision on weather they will take on the task.

                    I have work done with baertrax and was very pleased. I only used one other shop and would never recommend that place. I gave seen Aarons work it all looked good.

                      David Anderson (469-442-8508) fixed mine on Dana 44. Super cheap and quick, no issues since.

                        I'm getting ready to do the same thing to my LJ with the watchful help of Shawn. If you can be flexible with time, you'd be welcome to come over and work on yours at the same time. PM me if you're interested and we can work out a schedule.

                          Would it be a hard job to do? I've got a leaky seal in my front 44. Also curious of pricing but wouldn't mind trying myself.

                            It's a simple task. Save the cost of having it done, gain the experience, and use the saved money for other Jeep stuff.

                              Ft axle requires removal of both axles and carrier assembly, if you have one leaking then replace both.
