Well you going to need a little over 8.5 pallets, so just round it to nine. Idk just for sod, .15$ pr sq foot. Maybe lower maybe higher.

For one of my crews to do all that work it would be about 7500 to 8000 dollars worth of work

Do you have a contract with pricing?
Nothing else matters.

That was just for labor. I figure 90$ a pallet so 910$ for sod. Which does cover sod. So 600$ profit I think...???

This is hard to understand.

You did what? Wiring for what? Irrigation?
You removed what debris?
What machinery did you have to use?
