    After a brief hiatus from a Wrangler, I picked up my 2019 Hella Yella JLUR on Sunday. Factory ordered and delivered to the dealership in 39 days. Originally, was going to order Punk’d to keep with the Orange, but changed my mind when I arrived at the dealership to place my order.

    Previous 2013 JKU

    Lots of lessons learned from building my JKU, but most importantly learning to do things right the first time. Here’s the current items that are going to be installed in the coming weeks:

    RK 2.5 X-Factor
    Falcon 2.1

    37x12.50x17 Nitto Ridge Grapplers
    17x9 Method 312

    Metalcloak Skids
    Metalcloak FAD Skid
    Rock Hard 4x4 Sliders
    Motobilt Diff Covers

    Stock piling parts since Black Friday. Big thanks to Marcus @River City Offroad for the help and great prices on parts.

    Drove the JLUR home from the dealer and started the install of the Rock Hard 4x4 sliders. Was really worried about snapping the two front body mount bolts, but thankfully heating up those bolts with a torch definitely made pulling the bolts a lot easier. The other body mount bolts took no effort with a breaker bar.

    I to have the Hella Yella Rubicon JLUR and I'm curious what those bronzed Method 312's would look like with the yellow paint.

    Got a few more goodies today... unfortunately Fedex decided to treat my wheels like pinatas on it's journey to my house. One wheel got some damage.




    Going to start prepping for the lift install in the coming weeks along with getting the wheels/tires mounted.

    Nice JL. I pick up my factory ordered Hella Yella sport S today or tomorrow. I am very excited.

    I have LoD sliders waiting in my garage and I too worry about snapping those body mount bolts. Did you just heat up the bolt heads directly? Is there a rubber isolator to worry about melting?

    Thanks in advance.

    Yup, just heated the bolt heads directly. Probably only did it for 3-4mins. No issues with the rubber isolators.
