You are probably looking at about $150 to $200 in parts for rear cylinders, rear drums, rear shoes and front pads (basic replacement parts). Depending on your skill level probably 2 to 4 hours labor.
Personally I would take the $400 and put it in my pocket !

|HunterE||If I were to get it done somewhere for $600 (and that's everything), is that a good deal? I honestly get no time to work on my Jeep anymore.. so it would be pretty convenient. Not to say I have an easy $600 to spare but would doing it myself save a lot of money?|

Brake System for 2000 TJ
I'm new to this but I had a quick question that I'm sure someone much smarter than me can answer. I recently took my Wrangler in to get new brake pads and rotors (I've was out of a job for a while and couldn't afford to get the brakes done-put it off way too long). Now I'm told that not only do I need front pads and tires, I need back drums, shoes and cylinders. They're going to do everything, including oil change and all that stuff for $600 even. I'm pretty sure that's a good deal if I'm going to have a shop do it. What do ya'll think?
FYI, I already know that this is a problem that could have been avoided with maintenance and care.. I'm an idiot.
