$850 to rebuild an AX-5 transmission?

Yep. Just got a call from shop that my transmission is ready. Price is 850. Sounds really high to me. I removed it myself hoping to save money. Guess not... Any thoughts?

Sounds pretty high to me. I would think you could pick up a used one from a parts jeep or something for less than $300. I have seen them go for this amount. How much is it to get a rebuilt one and not rebuild yours?

Whats wrong with yours?

Take a look at my handmade custom paracord grab handles & other handmade paracord items!

You Choose the colors!!

Yep. It was definitely worth 850. 5th gear assembly completely broke apart. Sent chunks of gear and needle bearings flying all inside transmission. He replaced all seals also.
