If I had to pin it down to something similar, I'd say about as difficult as replacing the oil pan gasket.

Unsure of your abilities to take on such a task?

At minimum obtain a Paper-Type repair manual, and have a mechanically inclined Buddy help you perform this operation.

Want other possible alternatives to the HIGH $$$ FELLER?

Let me know and I'll sling a couple your way--I was taught to find someone who might be inexpensive, but qualified and capable of completing the task correctly, as well as in a timely manner. Not Just "Joe Id-iot", who saw his neighbor do it once!

Thanks "Doc"

Ain't no CJs for me to stick my head under their hood (proof they seldom have problems!), So I am sorta roaming around, attempting to answer "Generalized Questions" (as per Michael), Leaving the Technical Stuff to Ya'll. Unless something I am real familiar with, presents itself.I still have no idea how to distinguish doner from regular questions--so that I might leave them alone (the only reference I have seen is in the interface crap--I do not see it there now) I usually, just find my "Victims" on the Main Forum, and then the forums, I might know

Got a Message (in general, from Kenneth--maybe Robert too!) Says they ain't done with the re-vamp yet). Any idea what % it stands at now?

All,

Thanks for your info. I have done some axle, brakes, and various other repairs, but I will continue to research before I make a final decision.
