With 37's you don't need more then a 6" lift... some get it done with 4" (CSIPSD).

Maybe a smaller lift could bring the price down?

i would not put it like that Rob, they are using a pricier lift than the cheap ol' pro comp and sounds like those rims and tires are high $ before the lift...but they have an awesome place to do it at...not just some kids turning a wrench.

true they may be a little higher priced than the OL' Pro Comp, but it all serves the same purpose and i dont think there should be a 4000 dollar difference. he can still get a better deal if he shops around.

that way too much in my mind. do yourself a favor and hsop around. does it have to be a rize lift?? maybe go with a fab tech, or pro-comp. or even a sky jacker. unless you are looking for something really custom.

After taxes labor and everything I paid $8,527.25 for an 8" FabTech Suspension lift, 37" Toyo's, 22X11 Drive NT-1 Rims, The bullbar on the front, The SCT Livewire 9600, and an Airbag Assist kit on the rear. The Assist kit doesn't have the on board compressor, I had them run the airline under the gas cap. I just use it to level out the truck when I pull my boat. But thinking about all I got for three hundred less than what you are talking about I would say that sounds extremely high.

Get the tires at discount and bring them to the people doing the lift, and shop around for the lift places. A lot of spots don't do the lift themselves, they farm it out and then mark it up.
