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?

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!

how hard was the install?

dawhitesJKU 09-13-2013 01:02 PM

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.

Not too hard. It just takes some patience and the better part of a weekend even though they say 6 hours. The biggest time consumer were the adjustable control arms. A lot of putting them on measuring, pulling them loose adjusting and putting them back on. I've actually spent a few hours here and there the last several weeks playing with the control arms trying to dial it in just perfect. The instructions give you numbers to set the control arms to but don't tell you its just a starting point. I had to call them to get that little piece of info. You'll also need access to some big open end wrenches to adjust the control arms. all in all, I'm glad I didn't pay someone a ton to install it for me because I was able to use that money on a winch!

RubiChick 09-13-2013 01:50 PM

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

RubiChick 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
= $3,377
+ wheel alignment

They quoted me $4,800
What do you think?

TRAUMAhead 09-13-2013 03:00 PM

How about hosting an install party instead of getting the labor done at the shop? :happyyes:

Daniel_M 09-13-2013 03:36 PM

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.

For instance:
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...

I won't have time to install it myself. 4wheelparts is the closest shop that can install lifts etc. I can get the parts but how much would it cost to have it installed?

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

2.5" Rubicon Express w/ mono shocks $700
ProComp 7069 17" rims $665
RS5000 steering stabilizer $65
Nitto Terra Grappler 305/70/17 $1275
Bestop Rear Tire Carrier $250

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

You did it yourself? did you need to put the car on jacks?

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.

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

Won't have time to set a Saturday aside?? I guess everyone's schdules are different. However I would want to save the roughly $1000 in labor.

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.

I had 16's and if I were to do it again I would go with 15's or 17's. Sure you can find 35's for 16's (315/75R16) everywhere but that's where the max size stops. If you want to go 37's only option is 325/80R16 and only a few manufacturers make that tire size. However, you can find more 37x13.50R15. May not be an issue to you but I wanted to run 37's. 17's alleviate a lot of that but rubber is more pricey.

sorry back on topic

Had it done by a shop in my area since alignment needed to be done along with mounting and balance of tires. $800, but money well spent to have it done right first time....

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.

Get the lift from them krawl and the tires from 4 wheel so you can Get the road protection

it_felt_so_good 09-15-2013 06:26 PM

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.
