All in all I would say thats a "normal" price considering the prices of labor could be anywhere from $80-$100 per hour. If I had to, I would guesstimate anywhere between 700-1000 for a clutch job at your typical mechanic shop.
Like I said before most shops will charge what the book says the job should take. If it takes them 3 hours and the book says its a 6 hour job, your getting charged for 6 hours. On top of that they will always bump up the price of parts. Thats why I hate going to shops. I do as much of the work as possible on my own.

Wait that 750 price was just for parts?...If so I retract my statement above, lol.
Like Jerry said a good shop can do it in 3-4 hours. BUT most shops will charge you whatever time the book reads out, If the book says its a 8 hour job, your getting charged for 8 hours labor regardless.

Your Jeep came from the factory with a Luk clutch. You can get the entire Luk clutch kit which includes the factory clutch disk, pressure plate, pilot bearing, throwout bearing, and pilot shaft for $159 from Dial-A-Clutch - Your LuK Clutch Kit Specialist which is where I bought mine from. It arrived 3 days after ordering it. For $159, you get the same clutch the factory installed which is a superb quality clutch that can make it past 200K miles. I pulled mine at 160K miles out of concern and it still had a lot of life left on it.
Any good shop can swap the clutch in 3-4 hours so add another $320 in labor at a typical $80/hour at the most.

|97wrangler-242||If you got a couple buddies and basic tools you can do it for 200$|

|sevenservices||they should replace the slave cylinder when doing the clutch, but ask just to be sure. Its easiest while its all apart...|

750 actually isn't so bad. Labor rates are pretty high and thats a good price. Don't even bother calling the dealer. They wont be able to touch 750.
I would put my money on the clutch just being worn out rather than fluid leaking on it. The clutch is a wear & tear part..they eventually need to be replaced.

|TJe0454||how much should it cost to have done? i got a quote for 750 from a shop and im on the phone with a jeep dealership by me|

hey guys, have a big problem with my wrangler. today as i was on the highway making my 3 hour trip back from salisbury, my engine would rev up in 5th gear when given any gas, but not accelerate. the same would happen in 4th. then an hour later 3rd, 2nd, and 1st. accelerating from a stop in 2wd now feels like 4L (engine would rev, but accelerate slooooow). what could be the issue? thanks.
