Alright I'm looking into some prices on lift kits and I got a couple estamates. I got one from 4WP for a pro comp 6" full drop kit, eagle alloy 058s" and 35" BFG A/Ts for $4,267.15 which inludes installation and tax and everything, labor is $889.00 is that too much? I called another lift shop today that said they could do a CST 6-8" kit installed with wheels and tires for around $3.500, basically what I want to know is how much should I pay for a 6" full drop lift kit installed with some eagle wheels and 315/75/16 BFG A/Ts?

500 would be a good install price, 800 is nuts.... go to tirerack.com thats what you should pay for the tires...btw, discount tire will sell tires for what tirerack sells them for

The Pro Comp estimate is WAY to much. Go with the CST kit. It is much better then the Pro Comp, and its cheaper.
I wouldnt say its much better, a little maybe, but not that much.

$800 instal is a ripoff, i wouldnt pay more than $500. When I instal suspension lifts on peoples trucks (hopefully doing a few this summer) I typically charge like $250-$350 depending on the kit.

haha. After college its going to really depend on where my GF gets into med school to where I go. After I work in some 4x4 shops for a few years to gain experiance, I will be opening my own somwhere.


Back on topic - 4wp typically charges 500-600 for an instal, when I had my lift installed it cost about 4500 BUT that included weld rims (much more than eagles and x-terrains back when they were alot more expensive.) so yeah they are trying to rip you hardcore.

I would go with the CST kit and install on that one man. That is way too much for the procomp kit (although it is supposedly a great kit).

Is 4WP a better installer or something, are they even a good installer does anyone have any complaints with them? The reason I went to 4WP in the first place is cuz they have been around for a long time and I thought they would have the experience. I think a smaller local shop can do just as good of a job. My main concern is a bad install and I know that can happen anywhere.
