I just pulled those numbers out of my butt, so your numbers may be different.
Yeah the guy said thst average is between 2500 to 3500 but did note a brand new engine tranny tcase and rear axle. So I hope I'm at least at the high end of average

SOOOO glad I have a cage.

As for the insurance and buyback goes, I totaled my Jeep in October, (I t-boned a sedan making an illegal left, he fled the scene)

It was deemed a total loss at about 9000 in damages. I told the adjuster about what I had in the jeep for lift kit, tires, bolt on's etc, and they estimated the value at right around 4800. After paying my $500 deductible (damn hit and run asshat) and fees, and buyback cost, I got $3800 back, and got to keep the jeep.

Just talk with the adjuster and let them know your stance. Good luck with everything!

Does it happen at certain speeds or when hitting a bump? When at certain speeds, its usually a tire balance issues (been there) and if it happens when u hit a bump its most likely your track bar or one of your tie rod ends. Have someone move the steering wheel from left to right with the jeep turned off and go underneath and try to find a bad ball joint or bushing

it was a lift i put together slowly, one part at a time to get it right most of the lift (long arm etc ) came from BDS (love BDS) and teraflex. I did use teraflex spacers to get it higher
