So I copped out and got a shop to install my lift and tires all for $2100. That price includes 5 new 35" duratracs (tires, mount, balance), wheel alignment, lift installed, and a rental car till they're done. Tires, mount, and balance with road hazzard were $1750. Cheapest I've found anywhere around me (I don't have a Discount Tire around me ). So $350 for the lift installed seemed like a steal to me.

Now I'm driving this hot bisnatch for the day. BOOM:

Clearly doesn't come with parking assist.

Seriously though, the lift install does sound like a steal! I'm shopping now.

If you're anywhere near Philly, go to Plymouth Auto & Tire Center in Plymouth Meeting. They know what they're talking about and one of the mechanics, Bill, said he's rebuilt a Jeep for his wife and has installed a lift before. He's also on the forum and said he'd be on the Rausch Creek run a couple guys around me are organizing this weekend.

Dropped her off for a windshield replacement. I'm sure it's the first of many to come.

Which one did you order??
My eyes are crossed from reading all the pros/cons about all the different kind - I want something for when it's in the parking lot @ work and it supposed to rain that day - once pollen season is over here I plan on just a safari top until Dec/Jan-
I'm only 5"2' so I'm looking for something that I can put on and off easily by myself

I went with this one QuadraTop 11174 1041 - QuadraTop Emergency Top for 07-13 Jeep® Wrangler JK 2 Door - Quadratec

Mine is for the same reason. The rain while I'm at work. I liked it because it has roll up rear windows and it doesn't cover the doors so in a pinch I can leave it on and drive it home (work less than a mile away). I can let you know how it is as soon as I get it.

I purchased these used...they are the glass lens and a little deeper than the newer ones. I prefer the glass lenses as long as they don't break. First one took about 45 minutes. The second one took about 15 minutes. The airbag sensors get in the way. I used my Dremel tool to cut down 2 of the heat sinks on each casing..repainted and mounted them in. Pretty simple work.
