Not a bad deal, I just sold a 2013 unlimited Sahara with your equipment with a 2" lift, AEV wheels with Nitto tires, a KN setup and some other minor add ons for $38,000 with 5,000 miles on it.

Hard for me to imagine paying that for a sahara but it sounds like a decent deal. For that price I would get a Rubicon. Good luck with your choice.

X2. For that price you can get a nicely equipped rubi with a full warranty

Thanks. However, the one I'm talking about already has a 2.5 lift, wheels, and 35's on it.Click image for larger version

I still wouldn't spend that much for a sahara... But your the one paying for it so get what you like. If you like the one they have then thats what you should get.

Doesn't sound like a bad deal...not everyone needs or wants a Rubicon

Thoughts?
Does it have the 3.73 rear axle ratio? If it doesn't, you do realize that it's going to struggle with 35s and the 3.21 rear axle ratio. With that being said, go for it if it has the 3.73 ratio otherwise you will be spending somewhere around $1500 to regear. Good luck with the decision.

What TF lift is it? is it the 2.5" BB or an actual coil lift? If it is a BB 2.5" lift $4000 for lift and tires is way too much. If it is a top of the line TF lift then probably in the ball park as they hose you on labor but not much you can do about that. I would ask for the stock tires and wheels to go with it.

My local Jeep dealer is an AEV dealer and quoted a 3.5 inch AEV lift install for $720 plus parts, I think $1750 for parts. I am seriously thinking that is a deal.

Good point on which TF lift it is. Obviously makes a huge difference here when considering value. Like you said, if it's just spacers and shock extenders (BB: budget boost) then they are hosing you.
