The dealer will try to sell you the Mopar lift most likely. I dont know what your dealer wants but my dealer wanted $3500... just for the lift! Which is rediculous considering that its just a Superlift kit, which I bought from another shop in Vancouver for $2200. You can also get less expensive lifts than that such as RCX, I think they run around $1300 in Canada.

Consider shop rates for install too. My dealer charges like $120/hour and quoted me 15 hours for an install. The shop I got it installed at is experienced 4x4 shop and charges $85/hour.
