Sorry but it was years ago and I don't recall. I had it done in a 4Wheel Parts shop when I worked for their parent company so I didn't pay list price for the labor anyway. It might have cost me $75 IIRC which is probably half of what it would have cost a regular customer.
When you have a choice, buy American.

I just talked to my cousin and I will start collecting my needed parts and supplies so when I am ready for my next oil change we can do this. We will start early on a Saturday in case we need to roll into a Sunday. I am going to start spraying exhaust, 02S, and oil pan bolts now though.

By the way: What does IIRC mean?

My house and my Jeep are protected by god herself, and my gun. Mess around with either and meet both

A dealer in colorado qouted 600. Need a flex socket for those exhaust bolts, that was the most time consuming part of the whole deal, removing and installing.

I want Jerry's mechanic!

I had the same problem with my jeep and it was coming from the same spot. The leak was the valve cover gasket and the oil pan gasket. Both were very easy to change. You could have a RMS leaking to. I'm a mechanic I did mine stages because we can only work on personal cars on Saturdays at the where I work. When I did the oil pan I change the oil pump because it was going bad.

To drop the oil pan.
1: Spray the bolts and nuts on the exhaust flange down the night before you do the work.
2: Remove the exhaust pipe.
3: disconnect the ground on the battery.
4: Remove starter.
5: Remove trans cover plate.
6: Now remove the oil pan bolts, and it will drop down out of the way. Drain the oil first.

I didn't replace the RMS it was not my leak. You will see the RMS will be a little more work to install. I had a lift and air tools ,cuts the time in half. Good luck.

I am replacing my oil pan due to putting a screwdriver through it while removing rust.

I have removed the exhaust, but the bolts and the factory nut holders are pretty rusty too. Any good spot to get them besides the dealer?

Good luck with yours!
