this is the Shopping cart from quadratec i'm considering:

Tearaflex 2.5" lift kit with shocks-712.99
Rugged Ridge XHD module stubby front bumper winch mount- 409.99
Rugged Ridge Mod. Center hoop for bumper- 59.99
Rugged Ridge Fairland Roller License plate mount (damn NJ)- 29.99
Smittybilt XRC-8 winch-299.99
JKS manufacturing Quicker Disconnects 2.5-6" lift

subtotal-1659.94
ground shipping- 59.99
shipping surcharge-54.97

so good deal? Or better prices somewhere else on certain idea's, also got to get the soft top put on because it came with the hard and the warm weather is coming. :bounce:
what about Rock Krawler 2.5" Lift? ReviewsAny good self recovery kits to look at?
after that and painting my stock rims and waiting for the tires to wear down and herculining (or something similar to it) the whole tub and such.

My Jeep should be good enough for awhile seeing how i am still on the hunt for a USED motorcyle (Honda CBR 600 RR):pissed::beer:

I have found better - much better - prices by shopping around. Quadratec is not always the best deal, 4WP will match the price and you save shipping if you have one close enough to drive to.


There are a TON of active vendors on this forum that will hook you up - I choose to do my business with them...

First of all, ditch the fairlead license plate mount. Just tack the plate to the bumper with a couple of sheet metal screw and run some door-edge molding around the edges, secured with Gorilla Glue, like I did:



If you have a Rubicon (can't tell), you might want to get the RR front skid plate to protect your electronic swaybar disconnect motor.

Amazon can save you money.

thats a great idea with LP;) and amazon never really lets me down, BTW i got Sport, but would the front bumper skid still be good to have?

I skimmed over what most have said as I have a bad headache. But the tf kit leaves alot of things that will be addressed. And I know, I know many will chime in and say that you don't need all that shit and or it's a jeep and it's supposed to drive like ass, but if you want it right get a kit that has what you need. Front and rear trackbars, not brackets. Either upper or lower front adjustable control arms, a cheaper alternative is the Aev drop brackets. As for your all in one cart you can probably do better and have alot better customer care and service after the sale by hitting up some of the vendors on here. There is a recent thread going on for some rock bottom prices on winches and I would hit them up for sure. Just my opinion as I followed the masses over on the other forum and did the tf system and was less than impressed and have spent a ton replacing shit and or adding stuff to make it right.

Oh yeah the rock krawler kit came out a little over a month after I ordered the tf kit, I kick my self for not waiting a while longer. I would hit poly and krawler up and see what sort of deals they may be having or their vendors at least, all usually have free shipping.
