Installed my Quadratec QRC stubby Bumper and badlands 12k winch. As well as my A pillar pods and 4" led cubes. Waiting for my leveling kit and Nitto Terra Grapplers in 295/60/20. The QRC bumper looks good but was over 6 hour install due to not so perfect fitment and the most ass backward fog light installation design I have ever seen. Your build looks awesome. Going for a very OEM+ build on mine, keeping the stock wheels. I took it on some trails stock already and even on the crappy street tires it was very capable.

Note: that bumper and wince dropped the front an extra 1/2" so make sure on your lift you have a 1" difference between front and back that will level for you. I only fid 1/2 difference and still have some front rake.

How's the total weight with the mods vs. GVWR? I'm kind of obsessing over weight at the moment.

That really depends on tire size you plan to install. I have a JL Sahara and when I went to 35;s I originally installed 2" lift, that was not enough so I finally settled on a 3.5" lift. With that said if you plan to go with 35" tires on a Sahara you wan to install the Mopar 2" lift (which is actually 3" on a Sahara). For stock Sahara tires yo have a default 1/2" front rake, however the 3/4" should also look just fine. But again if you plan for bigger tires you want to go to 3" of lift for the Sahara. here is a pic of my sahara with a 3.5" Rancho Lift

I actually took it to the scales yesterday as we are shopping for a Diesel Pusher Motorhome. With wife and I full fuel 5900lbs which means 90% of Gas Motorhomes cannot tow these 4xe's. We are looking for a 38' or under Diesel Pusher and less than 1/2 of those can to more than 5000lbs. The issue is not the hitch or the frame or the engine it is the transmissions that limit the tow ratings on these. On gas rigs it is all of the above. So for those wanting to tow a 4xe you will be pushing it with most of the RV's out there and will likely exceed tow ratings for 90% of gas RV's.

MSRP $61045
Paid $54633
Tax Credit -$7500
Balance $47,133

Mods $13.5K (and I did all labor) Most expensive mod was Wheels and tire s and the Full Body 3M wrap $6K between the two. There are more than I listed.

So about $60.5K all together
