I got a quote today from a transmission shop for a bench top rebuild, me providing the parts: expected as a minimum of $1200.

That same shop quoted $2,000 for removal/rebuild/install.

The same shop quoted $600 for just a removal/install with me providing a known good transmission.


Saved yourself a bundle!

Well, I am looking for a source for instruction on how to rebuild.  The videos that I saved turned out to be for a manual....As mentioned before, I am lacking on time, and finally got around to watching the video after a month.

I asked in a few other places around the internet about rebuilding a JEBA at home.

Factory service manual has all the info you need.
Could probably get by with the ATSG manual for the phase 1 4EAT. That covers up to 98 but 98-99 are similar enough.
