Your upgrade list/price is decent.

The 'not voiding the warranty' part is what raises an eyebrow for me. Any part that is aftermarket won't be under the factory warranty and any 'factory part' that fails can be denied coverage if they think an after market part had a hand in its failure... I'm sure others more knowledgable will chime in on this soon.
Good luck though! Sounds like it'll be a nice rig

|dawhitesJKU||might i add...gusset your axle c's as an insurance policy to your heavy 35' tires, and while your at it... armor up the front differential either with sleeves or a truss kit from artec industries.|

With the gearing you will enjoy it 100%.
Do get the gearing but in a month or so, so that you can feel what a difference it makes.

I love the upgrade idea. Yes you could go get a stock rubicon, but that is boring. Having all of the mods will make that JEEP so much more fun! if you can't do it yourself, have someone else do it. Just get it done and get out on the trail. Enjoy the ride.
I did not notice gears on your parts list? I believe the sport has 3.23 gears. That will not be fun on the trail with the bigger tires. Have you considered this?

|corvallisbattery||Didn't see anything about regearing in there. Add that in! Those 35" with 3.73(at best) and all that extra weight isn't gonna make for a fun drive anywhere!|

|corvallisbattery||Crazy how local pricing sometimes makes it a better deal to buy new and mod. Not the case with many other rigs!|

|corvallisbattery||But really... dropping 13k seems outlandish when a stock Rubicon can accomplish everything your looking to do.|

Personally I believe if your going to be doing the "Rubicon Trail" and other like trails, it would be best to do most of the installs yourself to get to know your jeep. I'm not a fan of running what you haven't built. All the little details that become known as you build is invaluable. My advise doesn't come from jeeps.. I come from turbo Subaru's.. but it all applies.
The prices seem fair

Welcome to the forms!
A Jeep is not a car!
The prices seem a little high to me, but if you are happy with them, then that is all that matters. Nothing on earth beats do it yourself. Even if you can only do half of those installs. The lesson's learned you will remember for ever. I can not even go into how valuable those lessons are for folks. But Good Luck either way and I know you will have fun with it. Party On!

Help on Pricing! Good deal? Not sure where to post this!
Hey everyone, I am new to forums and have been doing some reading around but I am going to upgrade my jeep and was just wondering if anyone would give their opinion on the pricing of these upgrades.
I currently have a 2013 Wrangler Sport.
My hopes are to hit the Rubicon Trail in a month and in the meantime do some nearby trails and whatnot. This jeep (thanks rkracing ;P )is kind of my fathers and I hobby so we wanted to put some money into and make it more off road ready.
These are the things we are looking to get with the price from a local shop (install included in price)
TeraFlex 3" FlexArm Suspension Lift Kit with VSS 9550 Shocks (2530 installed including alignment)
Adjustable Track Bar (310 installed)
Double Cardin Joint Drive Shaft (580 installed)
5x Method Wheels (1200)
Goodyear MTR 35x12.5x17 (352 each- so 1760 for 5)
Tire Mounting (100 for all)
ORfab Front and Rear Bumpers (1900 installed)
Front and Rear eaton locker (2800 installed)
Warn Zeon winch with sythentic rope (1200 installed)
TeraFlex Rock Guard Rock Sliders (1000 installed)
This what we were quoted at by a local shop that is associated with our jeep dealer so we have the benefit of not voiding are warranty at the dealer. Are these reasonable prices? We really enjoy the shop and the employees plus how local it is, but wanted to check here first!
PS: sorry for double post, not sure where this belongs! :O
