4 inch Mopar Lift cost

Hey everyone - I just talked to the dealership I ordered my jeep from. I asked about the 4 inch MOPAR lift I'd seen another jeep driving around town had. They quoted me 2600 dollars for parts and labor to install everything - this included a JE Reel (sound familiar?) front drive shaft. Does this sound like a good deal?

MOPAR P5155404AB - MOPAR® Performance 4" Lift Kit with Bilstein Shocks for 07-10 Jeep® Wrangler Unlimited JK 4 Door - Quadratec

The lift link is above - I'm not sure what the ds cost is, but I believe the man on the phone said it was around 500 bucks.

Thanks for answering my limitless questioning!
Curtis

Yup, the JE Reel is $500.

Are you gonna run 37's or something?

I would look at other options, one that might include new control arms. that's a lot up there for some springs and shocks.

I planned on running 35s - do you think this is too much lift for that? The only reason I'm going with this lift is I assume that the kit being from MOPAR would mean I'd have no warranty issues going down the road.

Why do you need 4"? Seriously that is getting into $$$ territory and big maintenance. Not trying to divert you from it if that's what you've got your heart set on but get ready to educate your self on keeping your jeep running properly. Also I wouldn't let any stealership put a lift on my jeep. Case and point:

I just meet a guy last night with a 2012 JKU and a 2.5 TF lift with 35" Nittos on it all dealer installed he proclaimed proudly. This probably cost enough to buy a small island somewhere in the pacific at the rates stealerships charge now. A quick walk around his jeep and I noticed the dealership did not address the exhaust manifold issue nor calibrate his Jeep for the larger tires. The exhaust was less than a quarters length away from hitting. It was dark so I couldn't really see much else and I didn't want to start making this guy feel weird about his new purchase but man....who knows what other gremlins lurk in that install.

I want to be able to run 35s - I love the way it makes the rig look. I guess I'll stick with the new fender flares and the spacer kit - hold off on the real lift for a little down the road.

You can run 35's with a 2.5 TF or RK lift, which costs around $800. Plus you won't need the new ds. Install yourself, and you just saved $1,800, which will cover most of the cost of your 35's and rims.

Cool, huh?

Is the 2.5 inch TF lift any good? Just concerned I'd lose ride quality going with the cheap option like that.

The TF 2.5" coil lift is probably one of, if not the most installed kit on a JK. It is a great kit at a great price. It can be had from Northridge 4x4 right now for $750 and that is with awesome Bilstien shocks.

It is inexpensive, I will agree for sure. Especially for the quality of product and service that you get. You can also look into something like the Rock Krawler stock mod or max flex systems.

I'm going out on a limb here but...

I do believe the TF 2.5 kit is one of the better selling lifts here.
The more expensive lifts just add more components. Start simple and add as you need. So it's not that they are cheap... Very good- inexpensive lifts you can add to later if you choose.


Edit 4fit- beat me to it

If it was "cheap", in the sense that you meant, I would not recommend it to people. The last thing I wanna do is advise somebody to put shit on their Jeep. Ever see me do that?

Lightbulb Question?

Would be be a waste to add the exhaust spacers to my unit

It is an inexspensive DYI mod

You only need the exhaust spacer if you have aftermarket shocks that may cause your ds to hit your exhaust pipe due to increased downward travel.

So at this point, yes, it would be a waste of $$.

if I only had to wait a week or 2 for Bilsteins, I'd be content! Had them on my last vehicle and they "Were Great"
