Or maybe even rubicon shocks as i believe they are 1" longer. Plus you will notice a better ride and can get them used for cheap.

Hey Steve✌🏻 Great seeing what you're doing with your Jeep on the other side of the world!

I just noticed the from your pics that the Aussie Jeeps come with an additional flare extension built into the fenders...very cool. Keep the pics coming.


-Steven
Yep, handy little factory extension those, we miss out on the raised Rubi flares but get the small extension, it's just enough to cover my 305's and keep me legal :)

We don't get the raised rubicon springs but we do get the shocks, odd, I am hoping they will be long enough without the shock extensions hence why I am waiting to see how they go.

So added the Rugged Ridge snorkel, colour matched the A Pillar piece, also added the teraflex levelling kit, 2" in the front 1.5 in the rear, added an adjustable panhard and the mopar kit lower control arms to ensure the caster is ok. Next some electrical work :)

Are you going to relocate the steering damper to be a bit out of the way? It hangs quite low on our right hand drive JLs

Picked up the shock extensions, no time to fit yet though. Did add the rear mount and antenna for the wifi hotspot (using a netgear M2 nighthawk, which will charge off the second battery) and the ARB plate relocation kit ready for the towbar install during the week. The dealer is fitting the towbar but I can't stand the mopar plate relocation kit we get to put this on in preparation and ran the wring at the same time.

Finally completed the snorkel, extended the drain out behind the front bumper for easy access, also silicon-ed a few bits as the airbox extension piece didn't seem to seal very well.

Also have a towbar now, can finally tow the camper again once I fit the brake controller.

Done a few more things since the last update, Probably forget something but here we go :)

- Added the Stedi ST3303 Pro light bar
- Added the Blackvue DR900S dashcam
- Added rear airbags for towing the camper
- Finished off the rear Lithium battery setup and added a surface mount Anderson outlet
- Added a Stedi rocklight on the inside of the hatch with a dimmer switch
- Added a Bulletpoint phone mount and ran a long cable from center console to it for the phone. Goes under the console, up under the dash and up the a pillar and then along the base of the windscreen
- Added topsy hardtop lift hooks

I think that's it, a couple of pics :)

Were you able to run your air bag lines to the top with your spacer lift or did you go to the bottom?
I had to take the coils out, remove the bolts for the spacers and then put the spacers back in without bolts, much the same as the original rubber isolaters were, they were a pain to hold there and keep lined up while the coils went back in (used to double sided tape) but it seems like the bolts are more for convenience than anything else. I did consider running the bags upside down but then the air lines would be a lot more exposed, it would have worked though.

Really impressive build, very nice mods. Im thinking of getting my very first Jeep next year and like following these mod threads. (I always thought Australia was the land of Toyota Land Cruisers or Land Rovers. Nice to see a Jeep there.)
