I work at a Dodge/Jeep/Chrysler/Ford dealer; that price is a good deal for a dealership. As has been asked; if this is the front set you can get it done safely and correctly at home with minimal tools. You're only looking at $100-some-odd dollars worth of parts even if you rebought rotors or drums.

If you have an automotively-inclined friend, see if they'll give you a hand if you're not confident in your work yet; other than that run your search for reputable help through Google/BBB or a site like Angie's List.

Search the forum for a how-to on brake jobs here, the pictures make it easier to understand and that may bolster your conscience enough to bang this job out!
