How much did your set up Cost?

I have a 2013 Jeep JK Sahara (white with matching body top). I have been doing all kinds of research. I am stuck between running 35s or 37s. My jeep is a daily DL and will only see the trails occasionally. How much would I be looking to spend on each of these set ups? How much did everybody spend on there lifts? I really love the look of the 37s. What would be the smallest lift I could do and still run 37s and not have to change to many things? I am looking for any advice and please include pictures of your jeeps so I can get some ideas.

For a DD...save some cash and pass on the 37's.

Did you get 3.73's?

For a daily drive pending distance I say stick with the 35s. I am currently running a 3.5 inch lift with 315/70/17 MTRs and love the stance and set up until I pull in and see a bigger one on 37s with a 4" plus lift..

I am looking at going with Hankook 37's($330 each = $1650), 3.5" AEV lift - $1700, mickey thompson classic III 17's - ($160 each = $800) + labor/mounting/balancing = 800 to $900. Total = $4,950 before tax. This is actually what a local shop just quoted me this morning. I don't think it looks like too bad of a price. What do you think?

I went with a new used set of falken 35 wild peaks on American racing wheels $900, AEV 2.5 inch lift, procal and correction brackets, $1100. I did the labor and install total $2000.

for 37's gusset job is mostly likely mandatory as well a rear tire carrier.
$125 is for the mounting/balancing. that leaves you with about $675 or $775 to install/alignment which isn't too bad. it falls in the median. your gonna also need AEV procal.

Well that labor charge also included the labor for exhaust modification if neccesary to clear the front driveshaft. He said it may require a new Y-pipe to clear the front drive shaft and included the labor for that and priced that at $229 for the part. I don't think that will be necessary but he priced it out in case it needs it.

The Procal comes standard with the 3.5 and 4.5 AEV lifts. The 4.5 lift is only $75 more than the 3.5" lift. I really want as little lift as possible to clear the 37's and stock fenders. I have heard there aren't any issues with the 3.5 and 37's. Worst case I may have to trim pinch seam.

Yes, tire carrier is mandatory with 35's or 37's IMO. I would probably buy spare and just run naked on the rear end until I find a good bumper/tire carrier.

I was thinking about the 3.5 long arm kit with 37s also. If there happens to be any problems you can always add a 1inch body lift. I won't be doing any crazy off road, so I would think I would be fine.

Does anybody know if a jeep running 37s will fit in a normal size garage and will it fit in parking garages? I had a f250 with 37s that would not fit in parking garages and it became a hassle.
Thoughts?

Can you please post some pictures of your Jeep. It sounds like you have a set up that I might run.

Love the stance. Now is there a 3inch lift and a 3.5 inch lift? If so is there a benefit in running one rather than the other?

I'm planning to go to 37's soon and I've got about 2300$ int he suspension so far and I've still not done a truss or chromoly shafts yet. It's a lot of extra cost to go to 37's but it just depends on if its worth it to you or not. I think a lot of the look comes from the width between the tire and wheel well if your wanting looks. A big gap can make a 37 look small.

This is mine on 35's with 3.5" springs

2.5" Rk springs, MC adjustable control arms and hockey puck bump stops, gussets and trussed on both axles, 37's and a daily driver, 5.13 gears. 37's on a daily driver isn't bad if you got the right gears.

Thanks, its a frankenlift.
Part of that cost above was 5.13 gears

3.5" rk spring
Bilstein 5100s
Synergy drag link flip

Right now the stock arms with cam bolts and stock track bars. I will replace the stock arms with a long arm and the track bars at a alter point.

QUICK Answer: Go to time square and read the digital clock of the national debt...then go to your bank account and notice the same thing happening when you own a jeep ...that number goes up by the second! No other words can describe the "cost"

3.5 SC lift - 315/70/17 Duratracs. Still fits in the garage at work, would not if I put 37's on it. Like others have said 37's is where you start to break things and need to build around it. truss, gussets, etc. Mine has sleeves and gussets more for peace of mind than anything else.

I would love to put 37's on my Jeep, but it's just not feasible for my needs. It looks so badass though! I know it wouldn't fit in my garage. I barely fit with 3.5" lift and 35's now.

You could honestly use the stock all season street tires for "occasional trails". They would surprise you. Hell you'd be surprised what a honda civic can do on the trails.

But they don't look right. At all.

I have 33x12.5-R15 duratracs on my jeep, on cragar soft 8 15x8 steel rims (i had to grind my calipers). Works amazingly on and off road, wont perform on road quite like a street tire though.
