    How much lift do you have? Have you called a couply other places to see what they can install one for? I got a quote on a 7' boss sport duty for $3300 for my wrangler, but ended up buying a one season old plow.

    2004 Rubicon with Fisher 6.9 and timbren blocks

    I paid just around 4 grand for this set up in Feb 2009 from shaws garage in Florham park NJ It is very fast and works great. I took off the plastic cutting edge and added a steel one. Plastic one leaves a little film behind on occasion. Hooks up in less then a minute, very easy on and off. Highly reccomended!!

    The only thing the garage did was install timbren blocks. I am told they are a hard rubber compound that stop the spring travel from bottoming out. you dont even know they are installed jeep drives great with or without plow only sags like an inch with plow up.

    I use a Meyers plow with a 4inch lift...no problems (edit) it is good to put Timbrens in to stop the front from bouncing over speed humps and train tracks.(double edit) I run run smaller tires than what came with the jeep.

    I bought the hard top on ebay, mine came with soft top. Guy in Patterson NJ get hard tops all the time. Little side business he has.

    I sold my 16" Rubicon rims and use stock 15" steel jeep rims. You can keep you nice 16" rims and use some 15" rims for winter and buy some nice winter snow tires. something around a 29" tire 235? 265? I got some nice Toyo's off Craigs so I was not picky.
