A shop will probably charge you about 5 hrs of labor at least. Try to haggle them down to 3 or 4. The average price range for what you want is around $600. Which would equate to roughly 6-7 hrs depending what the hourly rate is. So if you can get them down to $300-$400 that would be a good price from what I've seen.

Although a DIY job is always more fulfilling and saves $

HONESTLY, I would absolutely love to do it myself... But have never done anything of this serious in nature, and do not want to fuck up my truck or do something wrong.

I put my cousins 33" mud king on the back just to do it and it was a mistake. As soon as I lowered the jack I fell in love, so now I am and pricing lifts, tires, and rims.

I am/was a noob auto mechanic and I wanna say it took about 8hrs with two of us. Note, my truck was prostine underneath, no stuck bolts etc. I only had hand tools too, so that might count for something.

Thanks. It actually makes me ill inside when I see this stuff sitting on the trail.

I actually get a giggle thinking that this is one area that nobody can argue Tacomas have over Jeeps. A nice big bed to pack trash out in.
