Just offhand I would guess around $1000-2000 (plus the kit and batteries) for a simple front-end adjustable or low-jump-height front end hopper, and potentially WAYYY more for a full jumper or bunny (now there is a phrase from the dark ages - means all four wheels are powered for hopping/jumping) - on up to $100,000 and more for computer controlled steerable jumpers and the ones which can clear the ground by 3-8 feet (which takes a LOT of reinforcement or new frame/suspension components). I remember seeing (Some years back) a Peterbilt ad of a three-axle Peterbilt bunny that cost $1/4 million to rig out for jumping.

But why not google the following search phrase to find a LOT of articles on this -

cost to install lowrider jumping car kit

or do some reading up in blogs and newsletters and enthusiast magazines like Lowrider magazine, which is pretty much the bible on the subject since the 1970's when the magazine got started in San Jose area, as I recall.

Be sure you go with experienced pros - someone like Hoppo's in San Berdo if you are in SoCal area. Yeah I am dating myself, but I remember when lowriders first got started in earnest in southern California in the late 50's (when Ron Aguirre built one of the first street-legal ones) through 70's - a LOT of kids in our high school cracked frames and broke suspension parts and blew tires out and dented rims trying to do it yourself - you need some SERIOUS reinforcing and welded support brackets to avoid that, and sometimes (especially with today's lower profile tires) different wheels/tires too.

I remember one very funny tricked-out Edsel Villager (a rare station wagon model) breaking its frame totally in half at a beach parking lot showing off - the body just crumpled up like a tin can after the frame broke clear through right behind the front door frame. Then there was the Beetle at a county fair exhibition which had one of the very first independently controlled wheel systems which ran on compressed air - a mistake operating it caused it to violently jump off both wheels on one side and flip totally upside down without touching the ground during the flip. Impressive but not too good for the car or lowrider inside.
