Cost to get a stock Rubi to look like this?

Hey Guys, new to the forum and thought I'd ask for some help on deciding which Rubi to buy. I like the looks and will be using this for 99.99% city driving.

Love the look of the modded one and want to know how much you guys think the conversion would cost? If you could breakdown what needs to be done as well that would be great. Looking for just exterior mods at this time.

Anything to stay away from given the fact that I drive mostly in the city?

Thanks in advance guys.

First off welcome to the forum.

Iím personally not going to list what is obvious that has been added to the modded Jeep but will say that to do something like that will cost you several thousands of dollars if done correctly.

To spend that much money and never use it just seems silly and a huge waste to me. I know you didnít ask for my opinion but just felt compelled to do it anyway.

Welcome to the forum.

Probably a close to 10K in there to get it right. That's if you do most/all of the work yourself. If you do build your rig similar to this one, don't put those steps on it. Get something aftermarket that actually won't be destroyed first time you DO decide to follow your heart and go off road - trust me - that calling will slowly pull you in.. yeah.. it starts off small - then it's lift, tires, wheels, skids, bumpers, armor, winch, trail GPS, better shocks, lockers, electric air.. etc... ~sigh..

Yeah, modifications like lifts, big tires, bumpers etc.

In all honestly the JK needs a lot to reliably handle mods, it's going to cost a bunch of money just to look cool, handling would suffer and you'd be back here shortly looking for help with poor handling and death wobble. $$$

Just being honest. If you really want, check out an aev 2.5" lift, with their geometry correction brackets, aev wheels and 285s or similar sized tires. That's about the least invasive lift setup that will handle well. At least for a while. That's close to what you see, but they've added bumpers, good etc.

Rock Krawler 2.5 with front lower control arms and Bilstein shocks $1,100

35" tires usually about $1650

Nice wheels can be had for $120 each but those AEVs are like $200

Bumpers range from $350-$1,000+

Winches $300-$2,000

My friend did the basic AEV 2.5 and 35s. Drives fantastic.

This my old Rubicon with that lift/shocks/35s. Sent from my iPhone using JeepForum

Basically, your looking at a small lift, tires, wheels, and bumpers to get the stance.

Starting at $14,745

From Aevs Website for their conversion. Looks to be a JK350 Kit, but looks more like 2.5" lift rather than 3"

http://www.aev-conversions.com/vehicles/jk-wrangler

That is a lot of money on top of a Rubi for just driving on the street though.

Easy. Get a Quadratec magazine or go to AEV website. Figure out using the pictures what the pictured Jeep has from AEV. Also add pricing for a set of 35X12.50X17 tires and a Warn 9.5 CTI. Then have fun in the garage installing everything.

That does look like a complete AEV package. I am also gonna say 15-16K. AEV gear is not cheap.
So, for that you are getting :

35" tires and Pintler wheels
2.5" lift
Front bumper
Rear bumper with tire carrier.
