    Well, it has begun... we pulled the trigger on Jeep #5 (#6 1 week later but that's another story... ). 2019 Black JLU Rubicon. The addiction started in October 2017 and has only grown. That was the year that we attended Jeepin for Judd (Florida) and Jeep Beach (Florida). Our first events and we were hooked. Jeep #1 was a 2015 JKU Sport that is going to be my son's when he turns 16.

    We were hooked when we met the Rebel Offroad guys at Jeep Beach and I wanted the Command Vehicle, or at least a version there of... finally 2 years later and we have started that process.

    As the deliveries started to roll in... we decided to wait to start the modifications and upgrades after our move from Colorado to Sarasota. This was really hard to do!!!

    20190501_125114.jpg 20190501_125814.jpg
    That's an interesting look!

    In the meantime we had the opportunity to drive all over Colorado and the US before beginning the transformation. The JL is a game changer! This is in comparison to a 2010 JK and two 2015 JKUs. This thing is amazing already.

    We made it successfully to Florida... time to start! We unloaded everything at our workshop and pulled Atlas in to begin the transformation.

    20190622_094234.jpg
    Step 1... Recon Coilover kit and Teraflex Alpine Control Arms

    20190622_095900.jpg 20190622_095904.jpg 20190622_101456.jpg

    We started with the Alpine Control Arms...

    Wow... what a difference these make. A pretty easy install.

    While that was going on, we sent the bumpers and Recon Kit components to Specialty Powdercoating in Zephyrhills Florida for some powdercoat! They did an amazing job...

    This was pretty scary at first for me. I have never really cut anything off of my Jeeps in that past... especially frame or support stuff! On to the rear Recon kit setup... and Teraflex rear track bar relocation kit...

    Rear end time... we installed the Motobilt tire carrier and Crusher rear bumper with KC pods...

    The tire carrier is rock solid with a 40" tire. Wow.. love it! Not sure where my rear window went but oh well... lol

    It's been a lot of fun. My son is building it with me... it's also been a HUGE learning experience.

    When we were negotiating the purchase we knew that we were going to swap the wheels/tires fast and were thinking about driving it to Florida. So we had them take another $1000 off the purchase price and throw those on.

    Road Armor A Pillar light mounts for light bar and window pods. We outfitted this with 8 KC Hilites Apollo lights on top and 2 additional Pods on the windows. Some are spread and some are spot. Different switches so that we can pick exactly what we want.
