$8,000 for this setup sounds right?

2.5 lift, Bilstein shocks, stabilizer bars, 20 wheels, Nito Tires 35, new slanted top for my 2015 Rubicon, all top of the line items. Went to a Jeep shop today and left perplexed I know the new top cost about $2800, but my price is $2500, the rest goes to the lift, tires and wheels...

So? Run or never talk to the shop again? lol...

$2500 for a slanted top. Is it a slanted hardtop?

Not seeing many trails in this one's future. Reminds me of the ending of the movie Cars


RK 2.5 front trackbar, lower CA etc, with bilsteins $1516, Nittos LT325/60R20 E rubber only $1500, rims $1100, top $2500 thats $6616 thats $1384 for tire mount & balance, kit install, alignment (assume) and sales tax ($463 @ 7%). Don't seem all that too far off

Sorry that's a soft top, I am talking about a slanted hard top~ My Rubicon comes equipped with a soft top installed already~ Nice wheels, which one's are those and what size?

I can't speak to the top. Tire and wheels will run you around $2500 up. A full lift kit from the like of Metalcloak, RK or Teraflex will run $2400 up. So you can go from there.

I paid $6500 for the following:
Rock Krawler 3.5 X-Factor
TeraFlex Big Brake Kit - Front/Rear
Bilstein 9000 shocks
Teraflex Rear Tire Carrier
5 - 17" Fuel Beast wheels with 37 Mickey Thompson MTZs
Upgraded front drive shaft
Synergy ball joints
ACE C Gussets

Install will be around $1,500.

So I think your pricing is a little high. You should give the guys at Krawl Off Road a call and consider buying your parts from them.
Good Luck

You either mean Rancho 9000s or some model of Bilstien (5100?) -so we don't confuse OP any more that's necessary- I presume...
