$2200 out the door from the dealer.
So labor $700, and $1500 for ptu and incidentals.
Sound rough for fluids and shop towels and bolts.
Recently rebuilt my PTU and it was a pain in the driveway. Took a full day to get it out (control arms were my biggest hassle), the better part of day to clean it up (clean out sludge, put in new seals, drill a drain hole), and the better part of a day to put everything back in. My problem was no 11 mm wrench, incorrect seal installer, snapped one of the exhaust flange studs, no drill with bigger than 3/8" chuck to drill drain hole. A bunch of time wasted on lack of preparation.... Next time I'm sure I could easily do it in 2 days....I'd say a long day (10 hours) to pull and rebuild it (new seals), and a 6 to 8 hour day to put it back, top of fluids, etc.. Experience of what to remove, how it's connected, what tools you need are the time savers. Doing this on a lift would make it so much easier/faster.Labor seems a little high - I would shop around. (labor to R&R ptu should only be around 5 hours)
PTU and incidentals seems way too high - should be about half that.
My costs were about $85....seals were about $50, stud kit for exhaust manifold as about $15, and geal oil. Some other minor incidentals like a bit/tap, kerosene to clean out the PTU, RTV, 11 mm wrench, etc.. I did to a transmission fluid change at the same time...but that was my choice so I count that as a separate cost. Though you will loose some tranny fluid doing this so you do need a few quarts at minimum.
