Question
What is the labor time to replace the complete frame assy on a 2013 chevy avalanche. thanks Dave

Answer
Hi Dave....Although I do not have current access to a Mitchell estimating program at this point in time to give you the exact labor time, I can give you a similar comparison. The last complete frame change we did at our shop, was on a 2015 Dodge Ram 2500. The labor rate for that particular vehicle, was 37.5 hours. Having done a few of these full frame changes over the past on various vehicles, in my experience, the times are very similar...I hope this helps you out.....Thanks for your question....Dave.
