You would need to provide more information for an exact estimate such as auto or manual trans, trans model and engine size. I'll assume it's the most popular 4.0L with an auto trans and 4x4. The book time to remove the transmission (depends on which labor book) is 5.8 hours plus .3 flywheel removal plus approx .5 to replace the plugs. The cooling system will have to be purged of air .8 and the coolant should be replaced. Multiply 7.4 hours times the shop rate example: $99.00 per hour would be approx. $740.00 in labor plus parts. Freeze plugs are cheap and coolant will be approx. $25. Good luck :o)
get a phone book out and look in the yellow pages under auto repair, transmissions. call three shops and ask them how much, average the costs, then you will know. they might want to know if you want a new transmission, a rebuilt, or if you just want yours repaired. Generally exchanging yours for a rebuilt off the shelf is cheapest and most sensible. make sure the price includes a new torque converter. then they will want to know if they are installing it for you to give you a labor estimate. if you have never changed a transmission, i suggest you do not undertake the job yourself.
