Price to have differential rebuilt

I plan on pulling a 8.8" pumpkin (with trac-loc) out of a car at the local pick n pull. what kind of price am I looking at to have all the seals replaced and some Yukon Gear http://www.yukongear.com/ProductDeta...px?ProdID=1940 4.11's installed?

Depends on what and where.

The "Go To" guy locally quoted me $900, but that included a new limited slip differential.

I was quoted $5-600 bucks with a gear install.

Garage
Gears = $150-175
TL Rebuild Kit = $75-100
Rebuild kit for rest of the diff (all the bearings) = $100

You are looking at $325-375 in parts alone
Finding someone to do it for $150-250 in labor sounds fair depending on the labor rate in your locale.
Considering how commonplace Ford 8.8" rear ends are, I wouldn't consider shipping it anywhere. Even using Greyhound/Bushipper ($68/each way), I can't imagine you'd save much to offset the cost of shipping.

Different people will charge different amounts, in labor alone I charge $250 to rebuild the diff, plus $50 to rebuild the traction lock and another $50 if aluminum case because a case spreader is required to do them right.
I charge an additional $100 if the gears are not OEM or FRPP OEM style gears because the rest suck to set up.
That does not include parts, gears new are usually about $175, Rebuilding a factory traction lock usually requires about $100 for clutches, $20 for the S-spring and 20 for the new crosspin. The bearing kit for the differential is close to $100 sometimes less. The bearing and axle seal kit is about $40. I insist on OEM style pinion seals because they are the best they are about $20 as well and I only use solid pinion spacer, again another $20. If you do not have a traction lock the cost on them can vary but new they are around $400

If you want quiet gears I highly suggest
http://www.summitracing.com/parts/fm...8410/overview/

I used to use the yukon gears all the time, then they changed to cheap junk I refuse to use.
Also keep in mind if you want 4.10/4.11 gears you will need a speed cal or dakota digital unit. Do not use the 23 tooth speedometer gear unless you want the slivers of the gear to eat the back of your transmission case.
