Question Cost of replacing clutch.

So I can tell that my clutch is nearing the end of its life, and I'm trying to get some figures on how expensive/extensive it is to replace. This really isnt a job I want to do myself, but if it is more cost effective to go it alone, I will. Any advice/pricing would be much appreciated!

Its a time consuming process cause the tranny has to be dropped, a new clutch is actually pretty cheap, the large majority of your cost is gonna be the labor. Ive never had a clutch replaced so i cant comment on price but i know its at least gonna be well over 500. If you're knowledgable enough to do the work yourself you will no doubt save a lot of money.

Hardest part is dealing with the weight of the Tranny, TC and bell housing all bolted together. If you have a Transmission jack or can get one and also can get an extra hand or two it's not too difficult. Already what was said, most of the price at the shop level is the labor time. Clutch, even a really good one (Luk) is not that exspensive.

The cost of the clutch kit itself is pretty inexpensive, they are only $93 or so on eBay for the preferred Luk clutch kit which includes everything... clutch disk, pressure plate, throwout bearing, pilot bearing, and pilot shaft. Click on eBay - Clutch Kit

That is the only clutch kit I would go with... it's inexpensive when purchase on eBay (the same kit is over $60 more elsewhere) and it holds up very well. In fact, that particular clutch is capable of lasting >200K miles.
When you have a choice, buy American.

The cost will depend on where you live. I just had some quotes when I thought I would need a clutch it was around $400 which I think was good price based on some other threads I have seen on this forum.

I asked last time I was at a transmission shop. Quoted me around $1500. I picked up the parts for $220 and had a local shop install them for about $350 or so I believe.

What have we got?
We have one heavily armed Recreational Vehicle
