SO, a bit off topic, but where in NJ do do you all go for your mods(the non-driveway ones) that do good work at a good price? I just got a quote for a re-gear, moderate lift, and tires at $12k. While this is my first modable(i know that's not a word) Jeep, that sounds really high.

Ok, so at least I'm thinking right. The lift and tires Are driveway mods, with some jacks,stands, and beer. But the re gear I cant tackle at my house.

I'm getting my gears done today. I'll let you know how much I get charged. I know a shop by be that does axle work and they said 8-900 bones. But I went to a buddy of my dads

$900 sounds in the right ballpark at least. But $4500 for a lift.... And $4500 for tires.... And another $2200 to re gear is stupid (no mention of what tires/lift was to be installed).

Price out your tires, rim, and lift separately, so that all you are negotiating is their labor price, now you have your base price and that labor price should be based on the quality of the shop, remember to let the shop buy everything, so that they are responsible
