Stuff has definitely gotten more expensive.

I got a full set of (5) wheels and tires (MT/Rs) of the 35" variety mounted balanced and on my rig for 1400ish about 2 years ago..

Petroleum based rubber. Soon Jeeps will be like Harleys only rich people will be able to afford them.

RE 2.5 as stated in his other thread but the shackles are hidden by the bumper like a kid with braces who is a bit shy.

Yeah RE 2.5, I swear this lift gave me close to 4 inches. I believe I have after market shackles, that were on when I bought it. They are pretty long, with 3 holes to adjust height. Not sure exact length. But it sits about .75 inches higher in front. Which I like. More pics to come.

Holy chit prices have really shot up. I paid 650 for my 33x12.5x15 bfg a/t 3 years ago. The sad thing is I'm really set up for 35's now but hate to give up my 33's since they are such a good mileage tire, and free flat repair although I've never had a flat.
I do have a set of 35 tsl's that I use offroad. I just bought new tires for my wife's suv this summer and even with my father-in-laws discount I paid close to 800. I'm worried for the day my jeep needs new shoes gotta start saving now.

try to work a trade-in, get same wheel base, and trade in tire for tire if they are still good you could make a discount price on the new set more than likely. Actually not even sure if companies do that nowadays, maybe a 4x4 shop if they got the right set of tires lying around. I'm sure you could work something out, brah.
