I live in Alaska so most of this was shipping but you get the idea:
$917 - BDS 3" Suspension Lift w/BDS 9500 Steering Stabilizer
$980 - Shop Labor
$1,340 - (5) Moto Metal 962's
$2,025 - (5) Toyo Open Country A/T II's
$100 - Mount, balance, etc.
$5,362 - Total
$4,800 seems a little bit high for especially since you're in California.

When ordering from a place such as Krawl Off Road, does it offer any road hazard warranty or anything? I have a history of picking up nails, screws, drillbits, etc. My wife's new 4Runner picked up a nail a few months ago, in the sidewall, and it was $235 to replace it. I did order my lift from Krawl, $712 for the TF 2.5 was the best price I could find.

sorry back on topic

Nevertheless, the $4800 seems awfully high even installed. Take what I quoted you and tack on $800 in labor ($100/hr for 8 hrs) still way below your $4800 quote.

Rancho 3" sport lift kit with shocks ~750 off amazon-300 rebate= 450
5 33" duratracs on 15" rims ~1200 after rebates (not to add selling stockers for 500)
Install price-bout 6 hours and some tools i didnt have.
If i did it again-16 rims so i could have more options for 35"s for the next time i buy tires

American eagle type 063: 5 for $1250
35 by 17 Fierce Attitudes: 5 for $1500
TeraFlex 2.5 coil lift w/ bilstein 5100's: Total shipped for $750
Fender trim: free mod
Bumper trim: free mod
Labor was 2 days of my time = priceless, learning about my JK
I won't knock anyone who pays someone to do the labor but if you wheel your rig in some remote places, I think the knowledge you get from doing it yourself is priceless and can save your @ss.
Check craigslist...I check every day and I scored my wheels and tires with 5 thousand miles on them for $800 total and not the above retail prices ( was good enough for me). Heck I got my tpms sensors taken out of my rubi wheels and put on the new setup and he even deivered my old rubi wheels to my house some 30 miles away for free...there are some good folks out there willing to make a deal.
Good luck with your build, ask questions...lots of good folks on this forum with good real life experience.

Just had mine done today. Shopped local and online and ended up with the following ordering online (free shipping and no sales tax):

ProComp 7069 17" rims $665
RS5000 steering stabilizer $65

Read hundreds of posts about lifts and tires and rims, and great input from everyone... Just comes down to personal preference!

Any reason why you want to use 4 Wheel Parts and their brands in equipment>> Much better lifts than RE also much better vendors than 4WP. Vendors here can get you better pricing on better lifts since they don't have the overhead and high profit margins. You would also save on labor if you install your self. IMO that is too much.
Rock Krawler 2.5" Max Travel - $1299
Bilstein 5100 - $80.00/piece
15" Wheels (Procomp 52 D windows) - $55.99/piece
35x12.5R15 Goodyear MTR's - $255.20/piece
$2863.76 + Shipping. Everything is from Krawl Offroad's website except the Prcomp wheels are 4WP. $0 to install yourself and some $$ for an alignment. If your budget was $4K-$5K, I just saved you some money to buy bumpers, winch etc...

|TRAUMAhead||How about hosting an install party instead of getting the labor done at the shop?|
|09-13-2013 02:07 PM|
Okay I think I got it picked out
3.5" rubicon express with mono tube $899
17" XD801 $879
35" BFG A/T $1,599
+ wheel alignment
They quoted me $4,800
What do you think?

|RubiChick||Okay there are two rubicon express that I like 2.5" lift ... Mono tube and twin tube shocks what should I get?|

don't get pro comp. the only in-house brand from 4wp that's quality are rubicon express. bett's springs manufacturer RE springs, and their shocks are tuned/repainted bilstein 5100's. pro comp's sag with heavy weight, and their mx6 shocks rust. I say that from experience.
i had an 07 tundra w/ procomp 6 lift and it started rusting after a year in SOCAL!! my re on my jk has 0 issues.
anyways, i paid about 1k for my 2.5 lift, jks disco's, aev geometry brackets, and exhaust spacers. my 5 17 fuel offroad mavericks/toyo at2 were 2300.

|SES12R||It really all depends on brands but I'm into my lift, wheels, and tires for about 5k and that was me installing it all. 4" rough country x-flex lift, 18" pro comp wheels, and 36" toyo open country m/t's. Now after bumpers, winch, gears and some other things I'm about 10k deep!|

Wanted how much to lift/wheels/tires are you all paying?
My girlfriend has a tacoma with 3" lift pro comp, 16" wheels and 33" pro comp m/t for 3k with 4wheelparts. I got an estimate for my JK 3.5" lift, 17 and 35 tires for $4500... Is this how much you guys are paying?
