FYI, I already know that this is a problem that could have been avoided with maintenance and care.. I'm an idiot.
Sounds like a decent price. Mechanic wanted $600 just do do the front rotors and pads on my wife's car.

JimsJeep 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?

UnlimitedLJ04 doing brakes yourself isn't that hard. if you can change your oil, you can do your own brakes.
