How much did you pay for your lift kit?

In general, how much is it to lift a wrangler unlimited the "right way" (No budget boost). Rims & Tires included. I know there are thousands of different combinations, but what did you all pay for your lifts and what did you get for your money? Wondering what i should expect to pay! I have a 2015 Rubicon Hard Rock

This question can't properly be answered without know 2 things.
1) What is the intended use of said Jeep after lift.
2) What size tire. Tire size dictates everything else.

$1900 or so for MB TKO 15" wheels and 35" Cooper STT pro tires minus $400 in rebates so effectively $1500. $423 for the JKU Teraflex 2.5" kit minus shocks, about $300 into RS 9000 shocks. $250 adjustable lower control arms.

Figure $2500 for a pretty standard 2.5"-3" lift and 35" tire package. Still need flat fenders, but I may just trim mine to save money for now.

My Rock Krawler X-Factor (springs, shocks, upper and lower control arms, track bars, retainers, brake lines, bump stops, assorted hardware) was just under $1,900. Front driveshaft was another $400. Installation (those control arms are adjustable) was about $1,500.

5 wheels and 34" Toyo MT tires was $3,000.

So just over $6K for a very complete lift (short of a long arm) and new wheels. Could have saves some $$$ installing myself, but what the heck...

I paid $1,500 for the Mopar 2" Lift with Fox shocks, installed.

Five 35" General Grabbers were $1,800 mounted and balanced.

Five Quadratec Moab 17x8.5 wheels were $650, including shipping.

I sold my Rubicon wheels and tire takeoffs for $1,000.

Net total was $2,950.

I was thinking 35" tires since my intended use is a daily driver with trails every weekend. Thinking 3.5" RK, not sure what good tires are, i like in NY so we have everything from 110 degree days to -10, snow to dust storms, all weather i suppose would be best?

If you want to to go Rock Krawler you would be well off with the 3.5 Flex System. North Ridge 4x4 has nice package deals that come with the shocks. Look at their site for pricing.

For tires I would suggest the GY Duratrac for your purposes. It is a great all around tire. Amazing in the snow.

Every single lift, tire, wheel, combo has a different price. You need to decide what you are comforting spending and see what fits your budget.

My main suggestion would be do it the way you want it the first time. I did it twice because I decided to go up to 37s.

My head keeps circling back to that very thought. I'm having a hell of a time deciding what I want to do, so part of me says: go nuts and do it wild now.

i paid $3000 for Mopar Teraflex 3.5" lift with FOX shocks, plus $3000 for 35" tires on 17 Fuel Revolver. I got about $1500 back in take off part sales.

RK 3.5 Flex is a very complete and affordable kit. I bought from 4WP and saved 10%. Saved about a grand on install by doing myself. Found the exact wheels I wanted used on eBay for $700

If i got the RK 3.5 X-Factor wouldnt that be better than the flex? I mean for now i would do 35's, but what i really want are 37's. Not sure how practical 37's would be for everyday use, seeing as how this truck would be a DD 5 days and Offroader 2 days? But i figured do it once, so get the x factor, watcha think? Also watcha think about the 35's vs 37's

I have the 3.5 Flex and have no rubbing issues with 37s. It is also a smooth, stable ride. X-Factor moves your rear axle back. I have seen multiple posts where people say it causes the tire to rub the rear bumper unless you get an after market bumper.

Thee is a never ending debate on 35-37s. My perspective is a heavy 35 is worse than a light 37. I went with the 37/12.50r17 Mastercraft MXT. They are only 73 pounds for a total of 100 with my wheel. I recalibrated with a Procal and jeep runs great. I even get decent MPG. I see people saying 10mpg with 37s and I am getting 17 mixed driving.

The x-factor is more complete and will allow a 37 without trimming the seems. http://www.krawloff-road.com/product...jk35xf-kit.htm

I cant answer this thread lol. Ive had 5 sets of coils, TF Flca's/brackets and now RK arms, also 9 sets of different shocks.

I don't think he will have to worry about the pinch seams since he has a 2015. Mine came trimmed.

Again, from what I see even here, a grand an inch, if done right. I'm not talking a stupid rubber insert lift, I'm talking all control arms, shocks, brake lines, everything.

My dealer is quoting me 1400 for a 2.5" leveling lift and 4100 for 5 Duratrac 33s on Fuel Anza wheels. This is the accessories mgr and this will be included in my finance pkg on a new Sport S. Seems high to me but these are Canadian prices we always pay more.

Yeah I know, I'm telling them to hold off on that until I get the details. I think this is not just the pucks at that price.

The wheel and tire package is now 3700 after they itemized all the items and I see the details. They want a lot for those Anza's, the rest is compatible with the local market.

Dealer says it's a Ready Lift suspension lift, no shocks $1550 incl alignment, not including calibration. I'm passing on it. Sounds too high a price to me. I'm only doing 32" Duratrac tires on 17 rims so no lift required now. Later if I make any changes I`ll reconsider other options.

Rock Krawler 2.5" Max Travel about $1500 installed myself (with friends)
35" tires I took off my old Raptor mounted on stock wheels

You can fit 37's on a 2.5 RK lift with flats easy
