you have developed quite an impressive list. How long is the build-up going to take? Weeks? Months? Years? The reason I ask, is so that you build your vehicle methodically. For instance you usually wouldn't want to purchase 37" tires before your lift. I would say that generally most would get some protection or tires first depending on the type of terrain you intend to tackle. But the Rubi already has some protection, aggressive tires, and extraction points. So if it was my money I would start with a lift and then tires. Keep searching the forum and you will find plenty of opinions about different companies and their products. Good luck and have fun!
I think I'm going to build most of my armor which will cut down on the costs a lot!.
I want to run the smallest lift possible with 37's I'm looking for minimum uptravel 3-4" and maximum droop up to 16" (I know it sounds crazy but it can be done)
I'm even considering building up my own triangulated 4-link front and rear...
In that case All I'd need would be some springs if I go that route. (most likely coilovers though)
I figure I can do bumpers and sliders for under $1K if I do them myself instead of $2.5-$3K if I buy them.
I doubt I'll be able to make skids, but you never know I'm determined to have a unique rig.
I could do them for maybe $300 instead of the $1K most people want...
Winches is what's gonna get me... I figure at least $4K for winches F/R and recovery gear (maybe even synthetic line to keep it light.
Exhaust will be a few hundred (I have a really trick idea that would most likely make it cheaper
, programer a few hundred (If I go that route(Plan on a powerplant swap many years down the road)), snorkel 500...
It won't be cheap but It'll be worth it.
My original list:
Front Bumper. ??? $1K
Rear Bumper. Red Rock Fab $1.2K?
F/R Winches. WARN? $4K
Rock Sliders. Red Rock Fab $650
Skid System. ??? $1K
Full Cage. KMA FAB $2K
Diff Covers. RROR $350
Snorkel. RROR $500
6" Long Arm Lift. ??? $3K?
Wheels. ??? $800?
Tires. 37"-38"? $1.5K?
HI-LIFT Jack. X-TREME 48"-60" $110
Synthetic Winch Line. ???
Tube Doors. ??? $300?
Rock Lights. ???
Driving Lights. ???
Backup Lights. ???
Dual Battery Kit. ??? $550
Air Intake. ???
Tube Fenders. RROR? $1K
Axle Sleves/Gussets. Offroad Evo $250
Seat Covers. MustMotoring $180
Nets. Safari Straps/Raingler/COP4x4??? $350?
Switch Pannel. $350?
Ouch, I'm wishing I didn't do that....
But that's if I purchase all major components and I can save $$$$ building myself plus if I skip tube fenders and mod the stockers, etc.
I just need to get the Jeep so I can start planning all of this.
Build time will vary depending on available funds and time..
