I would say that sound about right if the labor is included in the total.

If nothing else, call around to some other shops since you know what needs to be replaced and see what they say.

Sounds like a perfect opportunity (or excuse) to buy stainless extended brake lines. $75.

Probobly due for a full brake bleed anyway. Big bottle of DOT5, $15.

Sensor line rubbing through is common. Turn wheel all the way to the right and just look at it. Both of mine wore through rubbing the brake line.

You don't need a new sensor, just fix the bad spot in the wire and wrap it tightly in silicone rescue tape to keep water out. $5.

Buddy to help push the brake pedal while you crack the bleed screw, $20 for 12 pack of good beer.

All said ond done around $115 and couple hours getting to know your JK better and make it safer on and off road.

Might as well throw some sway bar disconnects while your under there and really take advantage of those new stainless braided brake lines.

At the risk of steering you in the wrong direction, are you sure the speed sensor did the damage? There was a recall for the break lines rubbing the fenders. You might get it fixed under the recall.
