First Wrangler - Needs Front Diff Repair

Hi y'all! I'm new and I found this site looking for some adivce about my front differential. I just bought this 2006 Unlimited in July from a very nice guy who seemed to love his Jeep. It has 58K miles on it. Anyway, since I've had it it's needed new U-joints, stabilizer end links pins, and now the front diff is making lots of noise and the mechanic says I need a whole new set up. I can't use the 4WD until it's fixed. Parts will be in Monday.
Is $750 a good deal for someone to rebuild your front differential? Not sure why it would go out in the first place with only 58K miles on it. Has anyone else experienced this?

Welcome to the Forum

I can't really comment on the price of repair, I'm more just wondering how it got that way. Had the Jeep been modified when you bought it? I hate to say it but I don't think that the PO loved it quite as much as he should have.
