Cost to run 6"/4" with 37's the right way

So, ive been doing a ton of research and I have come across a mix of information. I am wanting to plan a JK build but I am trying to get a rough total cost for my build.

My favorite look of the JKU is 6" lift w/ 37's, I know alot of JKer's say that is overkill but it freaking looks badass. I would no be opposed to a 4" lift but from what ive researched you still need to replace the F and R drive shafts. This also brings me to my next question on the axle's. I live in south texas where it is relatively flat and most of my offloading is in the sand not over rocks. Is it still necessary to reinforce my axle's?

Has anyone run a setup like this and if so what did it cost you? I am just trying to get a good ballpark number so I know how much to spend on buy the new jeep.

You will hate your life putting a 6 inch lift on. You do not need 6 inches to run 37s - they will look like Cheerios.

Cost = a lot. I am starting to budget and toying with the idea of 37s - you will easily be looking at many thousands. Double digits before the three zeroes.

If I got with 4" would I be able to keep the stock fender? Or need flats?

Depends on how you wheel , if not to mild then stock is fine over mild flats

For a good 4" to 6" 2500+ for all suspension and then add drive shafts , tie rod , drag link and track bar

This pic 3" lift and 37s


Before the weight 4" stock flares and then cut

Gander at this one

News - AJ's 2012 JK | TeraFlex Suspensions

You could get pricing right from the vender on just what it took to put six inch lift and 40s on this JKU. It is featured in many of TF videos and it is a serious machine.

Dana 60s, $12000 plus labor
Genright JK Elite Coilover package $13000 plus labor
PSC steering assist $2000 plus labor
37" tires $2200
Supercharger $6000 plus labor

I added the labor because I didn't know your level of experience with tools. Just those items will run you about $36000 plus labor. Then you can add all the little stuff like beadlocks, armor and so on. I think a budget of 50 grand should be good.

2.5" of lift, 1" of body lift and cut fenders and my 37's fit with plenty of room. No need whatsoever for 6". The goal is to get the diffs as high as possible and the COG as low as possible.

Well done.

I'd probably suggest a hemi swap but a supercharger should suffice.

OD Green is a killer contrast to black. Great looking rig you have there.

Thank ya, sir! It actually turned out a bit more forest green (bluish) than I wanted...OD was the goal, but am happy with it for sure!
