I think we're saying the same thing but I'm saying that everything would have been less then you are to do even with installation... But totally worth it for convenience... I'm by no means saying it was a bad deal... I would never pay the money for an AEV jeep though... There are tons of very good custom jeep shops out there that will build a jeep for me and still work with a dealer!

I think there may be a little confusion here (or maybe it's just me). The OP paid 35K for her modded up jeep. I think that was a fair deal. The 50K AEV JK that someone posted...someone would have to 'splain that one to me! Unless it has a Hemi, that seems a little crazy.

2011 Jeep Wrangler unlimited Sport - deep cherry red
Automatic, Pkg 24s, connectivity group, supplemental airbags, trac-lock limited slip diff., tubular sidesteps, 7 speaker infinity w/ subwoofer, sirius sat radio, 3 pc hard top.

2 1/2 sky? something lift,
Procomp mud terrain tires 35x12.50r17lt,
XD Series wheels,
slush mats, 4 grab handles, KC lights, mopar black gas door and black tail light guards, brackets to mount mirrors when the doors are off, something for the rear tire to help with it's weight on the rear door.
I think I listed everything.

Rides great! I love it! Brought it home topless and doorless......65 mph down the freeway was interesting!

Thanks to everyone here who answered my questions! Now I have one more........I have 500 dollars in mopar bucks. I was considering either the mopar gps security system or the mopar cold air intake. Suggestions or opinions?
Love the color! Congrats!

The red color with the black rims looks awesome. Does it fit in the garage with the lift? Looks like it might be a tight fit.

I think that's a great looking Jeep!! Not overdone, looks just right. I'd put some of that money towards a few mopar accesories such as door sills, slush mats and grab handles. Sooner or later you're going to get those things anyway and they're not that expensive, might as well knock it out now and none will affect your warranty.

You guys are awesome.....thank you for all the compliments on my new jeep! Of course it helps when this is a forum full of jeep lovers! I knew my jeep was gonna get some love from you all!

Somebody asked if it fits in my garage.....yes it fits. My problem is the width. I have a 2 car garage but it has single doors instead of 1 big door. Just makes it a little nerve wracking pulling it in and out.

Somebody mentioned that I could have gotten the lift, tires and so on cheaper outside of the dealership. While this is probably true, I like the idea of having the dealer be the one to stand behind the work done. I also appreciate that I did not have to hassle with trying to get something done like this myself. I also like that I could see what the jeep looked like with everything on it. I would have been afraid that I would have picked something out that looked good in the store but looked stupid on my jeep. Anyway, I am 100% happy with what I spent and honestly still think I got a decent deal.

I did spend my mopar bucks but definitely not on the popular suggestions on here. Since the jeep already came with most of the mopar accessories that I would have wanted I opted to go with the cold air intake. It was installed saturday. The reason I chose this was due to where I live.....lots of in town highway driving where you need as much get up and go as you can. Does the cold air intake make a difference.......yes, a slight increase. Enough of one that I am happy that I chose it. Increased mpg.....only time will tell on that.

Next question........Do you recommend locking lug nuts like gorilla brand or any other to protect those expensive tires and wheels? How do you protect your spare from being stolen?

Just in case you have not heard this enough.....I love my jeep!
I can't wait until I have some free time to get those doors and top off again.....that was awesome! Next is to try and find someplace mild to go play in some dirt! Don't laugh.....4 wheeling is new to me!

Locking lug nuts would be a good investment.
