-RC 2 sets of 1.5in wheel spacers,
-JK exhaust extension kit
-RC Dual performance steering stabilizer


Any feedback is highly appreciated.

Just look at the breakdown in parts

Rough Country 3.5 series 2 suspension 499
RC wheel spacers 59 each so 118
exhaust extension 42
RC dual performance steering stabilizer 129
total in parts alone 799

So they are charging you another 700 to have it installed?

Depends on labor rates and tax rate in your area.

Installing a lift kit is not impossible to do yourself, but I completely understand taking it to someone else to get it done. Not everyone has a garage or their own tools to work on stuff like this. It is all in what you are comfortable doing and paying. The prices I quoted you above were from Morris4x4 with free shipping and no tax.

Thank you for the feedback. My skills level are in the very low end, I'm hesitant to go for it because of the RC negative reviews plus the $640 labor... It's just kind of hard to find places in central Jersey That would do the job and are experienced. Still very unsure of how to proceed....
