If I was going to pay someone to do a Jeep custom built I would by it from the dealership and then take it to a reputable shop for the lift, tires, wheels, ect.... probably end up with a better built Jeep and you can then sell some of the stock parts.

sorry, probably not the answer you were looking for.....

Price is really determine more by ones ability to negotiation.

I would agree with my996duc1, with all the top notch Jeep performance shop in Ca. why would one use the dealer to install anything not OEM.

That said, sometime it seems "easier" to just roll the upgrades into the financing provided by the dealer. So if that is the direction you wish to go........

As far as a good dealership to work with it depends, most have car salesmen a few have Jeep salesmen, there is a difference. Finding a Jeep salesman is harder. I bought after I found someone that understood what really makes up a Jeep and could tell me where John Bull trail was and it's trail number (not that I didn't already know).

That salesman was at Redlands Jeep.

Do yourself a huge favor and buy it stock, research what you need in your jeep, and maybe do some of the stuff yourself. If not there's plenty of honest and knowledgeable shops like JPI in Yucaipa to help ya out and do the work for ya.

I've seen some shady crap with modded jeeps at dealers. Big bucks for cheap spacer lifts, cheap bling wheels w/ 35" tires on stock gearing. Some of the guys here work sales at local Jeep dealers.

I agree with most of the fellas in that your lift, wheels and tires and other mods should be performed by an aftermarket company. JPI in Yucaipa is excellent. However, Mopar does make a 2.5 & 4 inch lift that is covered by the manufacturers warranty. Wheels and tires, armor, sliders, etc... Are all overpriced at the dealer and inferior to what you really need to crawl.

I know all if this because I sell new and preowned Jeeps at Moss Bros. in Riverside and I'm a Wheeler myself.

If you think you might "Get it and Forget it" then a dealer bought rig will get over those speed bumps at the mall nicely. Once you get dirty the first time you will want more and the money you spent at the dealer will buy you a lot more at the right shop. Do your self a favor and show up at one of the many day trips off of this forum and ride shotgun and just listen and learn.

If you can, ride shotgun with someone in one of SteveO's Stodder Wells runs or go to the High Desert Roundup Memorial weekend. If wheeling is your thing, this will surely get you hooked. Or it will make you want to take up water sports

It won't cure the addiction, I spent Last week at Lake Havasu boating and still scoured the hills for Jeeps as we cruised up and down the water.

For a new Jeep, or any new vehicle, if you are a Costco member, they have a nice program. Well, at least it worked for me, as it saved me money and I did not have to haggle or anything. Too bad I did not know about this forum or RadarRob before I bough mine though, as I would of got one with the 3.73 gears and the factory LSD for sure.

It might be helpful to know what area you're in. There are Jeep dealers everywhere.

I bought mine from Redlands Jeep. Great service there, I would buy from them again. They do usually have some modded Jeeps for sale which usually means lift and wheels.

I agree with the others -- get it stock and get it done by a pro. Then again, if you buy it pre-modded, the prices will be financed into your loan which could be nice. You will of course over pay for those mods though.

Rob, can you please clarify this as the insider? Not to hijack the thread but there is so much mis-information out here. Does Moss Bros. warrant the Mopar lift; or does Chrysler warrant it? How does an aftermarket lift, Mopar or otherwise, fall under a manufacturer's/factory warranty? We installed a Mopar but because I wanted the schtuff in it. I would never have thought to have a dealer do it to keep it under warranty.....
Per Highwayman, I bought mine as bone-stock as I could and then modified. I looked for at least 6 mos. before buying. Moss and Huntington Beach Jeep had the best prices.

It falls under the Manufacturers Warranty. Up to and including the Lifetime Wrap that only Chrysler offers. No time or mileage constraints. As long as they are Mopar parts only.
