Lift, Wheels, And Tires Time!

I have an 08 JK 4dr sahara that i'm finally ready to upgrade. I went to a local 4X4 custom shop and here is what they are recomending...

4" ProComp Lift w/ 4 springs, TacBar Stabilizer bracket, and Shocks.
Adding stearing stabilizer and the Alignment.
Installed $1164 Which I thought sounded good!

5X 35x12.5 Mickey Thompson Baja ATZs on...
5X 17x9 Procomp Alloy wheels and spline lug kit.
$2644

I think the lift sounds great but I can get...
5X 35x12.5 BFgoodrich M/T KM2s which I like more at 4wheelparts.com.
$2149 Mounted Balanced and Delivered to my house.

What do you guys think?

The km2 is a way better tire all around than the baja

I would just get 4 wheels and tires until you can afford a tire carrier. You don't really 'need' a steering stabilizer either, although some will disagree.

Otherwise sounds good!

Sounds awsome to me. Im doing all myself. Order 3.5'' skyjacker, 15x8 creager soft 8's, BF Goodrich KM2's 35x12.50xr15, bigger tire carrier, 2 sets of skyjacker 3'' grabhandles, spare tire cover, and a drop pitman arm. All for under $2,500.

Ive had soft 8s on three different rigs, and in my opinion they are the best wheel on the market
