Timing belt change alone was around $400 or $450. I also had them change the water pump and timing belt tensioner since they had the front of the engine apart. They changed the serpentine belt because it needed it, I did not specify that, but I trust my mechanics. I also had an oil change on the same visit. Total cost was around $750, but numbers like that don't stick in my head. I remember experiencing a little sticker shock at that price, but also noticing that the labor was less than half and they worked most of a day to get it done. I know I have maintained my Trooper's engine the best I can. We also have a minivan. My wife considers my old Trooper more reliable than a newer minivan.
Due to my work location that day, my wife dropped off and picked it up. I asked her if it felt any different driving it after the work was done, she said not much difference, but that it seemed very peppy.

I just had mine done in January...Memphis, TN suburb. Cost right at $350...they quoted about another $200 to get the water pump at the same time. This was on a '00 Trooper LS 2wd.
Local dealer had quoted about $850 for timing belt and water pump.

Please provide more details. Is your engine running well? Are you in 4x4 low range? Are you towing a mobile home?
