I want to get a lift for my jlu, so I decided to go to the shop that does lifts on jeep and was suggested with this one -
(JL) Rubicon Express 3.5"/4.5" Long Arm Suspension Kit with 2.5" Monotube Shocks -

I was quoted $1200 for the install of the lift. This jlu will only be street driven. I will be pairing this lift with 17in wheels and 35in tires.

All together the total cost of parts and labor came out to 11k. Is that a normal price range for something like this? And is rubicon Express brand something I would worry about in the future?

That seems kinda steep it sounds like they are selling you more than you need. A long arm lift is generally for more extreme off road use,

Honestly to run 35s with mostly street use a 2" Mopar or Dynatrac lift with wheels and tires is more than enough IMO.

Metalcloak probably for best on road ride and no maintenance. But yes, find a new shop. Did they even ask you what you were going to do with it?

No they never asked me, but I told them that this will be only street driven. Would a dealership be a good choice to install my lift?

Do it yourself or find a good specialty off-road shop. I'm sure if you contact a local club they can make some recommendations.
