New mopar stage 3 lift kit

Just received our new stage 3-3 inch lift kit from Mopar and plan on getting it installed along with new wheels and 35 inch tires on Tues and Wed this week. This is our first jeep and cant wait to get started fixing it the way we want. Has anybody out there done this lift from Mopar?

I am picking up my JKU in a couple weeks and was interested in the MOPAR 3"lift. How is it? Any pics?

That looks sharp! Nice height, everything fits together well. Thanks for the pictures. That definitely helps me out. What size tire/rim are you running? Looks like 18" rim maybe?

The sponsoring dealer at Tennessee Mountains Jeep Jamboree USA this past weekend had this lift on a JKU. It made my mouth water. They had 35 Duratracs and fox shocks. Uncertain about the new springs. Cannot remember the wheels, but they said the wheel centers could have the Jeep logo OR the standard yellow cap. Someone might ID the wheels from this.

Anyway, they did not have to space the wheels or change drive shafts. Does this seem right in your case? Basically all the rest of the suspension was replaced. They wanted $7800 for the complete install including tires wheels everything. Is this an okay price.

One thing for certain, they were behind me a lot and that beast rode up and over everything in its path.

I didn't have to have spacers or driveshafts- the kit came with new arms, fox shocks, springs, hydraulic bump stops, limiting straps, etc etc. I love this kit so far and don't think I could've done any better. Everything I got cost me $6500 but I did some sweet talking and the dealership really wanted to see a final product. This included the lift, wheels, tires, alignment, install, badass rear tire relocator etc.-This was 5 wheels and tires by the way. The tires were the Goodyear with Kevlar and they are awesome so far. I am planning to get some better close ups in a few days.

Great. You refer to a spare tire relocator. Did they install a beefier carrier? The install I saw used the stock factory carrier. The $7800 was 5 tires/rims but no modified carrier. I think you got a good deal. My dealer has done 8 installs so far, so I won't have the leverage you had. If I proceed I'll offer your number.

What brand and model rims are yours? Nice. How is visibility in rear view mirror over the spare?

Was your installer firm that you did not need these to make the set-up sweet? I think this is a huge selling point if no further expensive parts are needed.
