jokerchief462 I'm moving what's the address anything for sale close by!!! I am an amateur at gears and trannies and that kind of help is hard to find. You ought get a bottle of his favorite adult beverage also. When you are up and running you should offer him up shotgun when get out.

1rbotma i gave the guy 160. i dont think thats too bad considering he was there for five hours and he said he enjoys working on jeeps..

Dino30 Well , around here its about 800 to have a set of gears installed . If it was done correctly and you are happy with the results then i would give him 150 or so . seeing how he wanted 50 and the dealership charge's about 80 per hour for labor . I dont think it would be unreasonable .

Is it $100?
Did you say 5 hours? Keep in mind what a *competent* mechanic's fair market hourly rate for that amount of time in your area might be. Are you pleased with the work that was done *and* do you have every indication that it was done correctly? If so, offer your new friend what he asked for and tip him on top of that. If there are any issues, there's no paper trail tying back to the dealership, and little recourse. In that scenario, I defer to other forum members for creative solutions for making your situation right. ;-)

Farnham21 5 hours of labor at a dealership is like $500 I'd throw him at least 100$
