Picked up my first Jeep back in April. Pandemic purchase! No travel budget = new toy budget! Enjoy my build!

Added my trusty Thule roof rack for starters. I've been using this thing for the past 15 years and it's as good today as it was the day I purchased it. Fits nicely to allow for the freedom tops to come off!

Added some lights to the rack and swapped out my headlights and fogs for LEDs

It's been awhile, but I wanted to provide an update. Got my lift, tires and rims all installed a few weeks back. If you're in the Denver area, I'd highly recommend Brennan and Ludski over at Core Offroad. The guys were great to work with and did a fantastic job on the install.

Description:
RK 2.5" X Factor Lift with Fox Shocks
18x9 Black Rhino Fury Rims (Gunmetal Gray)
35x12.5 Mickey Thompson Baja ATZ

So far, I've put on about 500 miles since the install. To address the, "How does it drive" question. Here's my two cents:

I had no complaints about how the Wrangler handled stock. However, I didn't love it on the highway. I felt like it was pretty soft and tended to get a little bouncy 70mph+. With the lift and tires, this is completely gone. Granted, it's rougher, but it's not nearly as rough as I was worried it would be. On the highway, it drives like a dream. The ride is solid and smooth. My wife commented that she couldn't feel the difference at all even though she was HIGHLY skeptical after seeing how much of a difference there was from stock. Overall, this is a great combo so far. It's snowing in Colorado now but I definitely have plans to get her out and stretch her legs at the first chance I get.

I couldn't be happier with how this looks and performs! Great products all around!

I hope you enjoy my build!
