I would ask them about the time to cut off the track bar bracket. 3.5hrs seems excessive, especially since they are doing all this other work in the area and charging you for that, which will be removing everything out of the way.
That may be more accurate if it was the only thing you were doing, but not in the overall scope of the entire quote.
I'd ask them to drop that down to 1hr, correct the cost for the rear driveshaft and you are probably good to go.

I decided to do that work myself. I’m just going with the lift by itself. It comes with there hi steer kit so I’ll be using that. I’ll replace the steering, driveshaft and track bar bracket down the road. I don’t really do extreme Off-roading right now.

Now that's the spirit. I think you have a good plan.
You could do a build thread also.

Very Cool

Create a build thread [And/or just use this one] and post updates as you make them.
We are all picture and upgrade junkies.

That TJ non-hydro PSC box has been working flawlessly with my stock pump and reservoir. NOTE - When you switch to PSC, you also switch to power steering fluid. Flush it out good. One of the lines changes too. I forgot which one. You buy that new line from PSC.

I may be late to the party

But my solution to 35s on a JKU is just to do new fenders, then skid plates for the belly and let it rub, if you even have that issue.

If you think you really need a suspension lift, I would just get the Synergy 1" springs, they netted me about 2-3 of actual lift. If you need a trackbar, after that, just get one of many.

I do like all the AEV stuff, but may be overkill.

the JKU on the 1" springs and nemesis fenders, oh and 37s (before I tore it down to go back to stock and sell it, that project isn't done either)

Pressure line gets replaced. Use Swepco steering fluid as recommended by PSC.

I do like the idea of flat fenders. What brands should I look into. That’s a sweet looking Jeep by the way how did you like those mtrs

the MTRs have been good.

I have the Nemesis fenders onto JKU, they are all about the same IMHO. just different approaches and materials. Soon to be sold when I get caught up on other projects and complete the tear down of it and sell the parts and sell the JKU.

I am no where near ready to make any commitments on that.

Wish I was and hope I don't miss the surge in used car prices. The JKU is worth more than I have into it at the current rates.

But I don't have enough time to get to it.
