Welcome aboard boss.

Yeah, we've heard that about the parts from some of your other compadres out here that are in Australia. Don't know what the shipping/taxes/customs is like there, but I gotta think there is a cheaper way to get parts for you fellars.

Is that 3K for a fabbed up cage or 3K for a stock cage from Jeep? But either way you are right. Too high for one and stupid priced if it's the latter. H.G. and some of the others have told us some other horror stories about parts prices over there.
