Big parts order, who can make the best deal?

I have a 2013 JK sport 4 door auto. Bought 15x8 TKO rims and 35 MTR w/ Kevlar tires. Want to run Poison Spyder Bumpers and rockers. Winch up front. Going to be DD for the next year. Lots of miles. Looking for nice onroad performance. Will do mild trail riding but nothing serious. Dont want to put any money into my axles. Plan is to swap super duty axles and go 37+ tires later. Everyone says OME is the best onroad set up so I was looking at that. With the 4 door 2.5" Heavy coils, will I still get the lift I am looking for with all the heavy accessories? I know track bar brackets would be cheaper, but I would rather be able to get the axles centered. Not sure what size bump stops I need, especially since I want to run bushwhacker flat fenders. Anyways. I sent an email off to one vendor to get a quote. Before I pull the trigger, wanted to see if any other vendors could pm me a shipped price on this pile of stuff to 23321. I am active duty military if anyone gives a military discount. Ready to order today.

OME 4 door hard top HD 2.5" coils

OME 2.5" Sport shocks

JKS front and rear adj track bars

front and rear extended brake lines,

front and rear bump stops,

front and rear sway bar links

Artec dana 30 inner C gussets

Tera Flex exhaust spacers

Poison spyder 4 door Brawler rockers

Poison spyder brawler lite front bumper with brawler bar, plate gussets, and d ring mounts

poison spyder rear rock brawler with tire carier and d ring mounts

Poison Spyder 2 1/2" back up lights (LED for bumper). Quantity 2.

Poison Spyder winch fairlead mount

Seal 9.5si winch

Grade 8 bolt kit

bushwacker flat fenders

I'll send you a PM but it'll take me a few minutes.

You've got mail with both pricing and some thoughts on your suspension choices. I think we can save you some money if you're willing to open up your choice in lift. Piecing it together will always cost you more and net you less components in the end.

If you want to do it once and be done I'd look at something in the 3.5" range too. 3.5, flat flares, and 37s is perfect on the JKU IMO.

Good luck either way brother.

Good choice going with RCO. Marcus is great to deal with and understands the lost concept of customer service.

Sounds like someone HAD some deployment money burning a hole in their pocket...

Ha ha! There will be a few there before you know it.

Thank you for your business and support. I'm glad I could help and I believe we saved you some headaches and money too. I think you'll be very pleased with the results.

17-59-010-b-JK Brawler Lite Front Bumper with Brawler Bar + Shackle Tabs + Plate Gusset
17-61-020-JK RockBrawler™ Rear Bumper with Tire Carrier + Shackle Tabs
18-08-200-JK 4-Dr Brawler Rockers™ (Steel)

Big difference was Marcus convinced me to not waste money on suspension stuff. I have plans to swap in Super duty axles and do a custom long arm. He said the stock mod will get me where I want, handle the heavy weight of the bumpers and rockers, and work good on the street and trail. Track bar and bracket will center my axles, so that is good. Said with 2.5" the stock sway bar links will work... So he made sure I didn't waste money on parts I was just going to get rid of later.

He speaks the truth. Rear stock sway link can go to the front without issue. I am running the same setup right now. Couple turns of the wrench and you're disco.
