Hi :) New member here. My Jeep is currently undergoing major mods at this time, so I really wanted to document it on here. I purchased this Jeep in June of 2019.

2019 Bright White JLU Sahara

Stock Specs:
  • 3.6L V6 Engine
  • 8 Speed Automatic
  • Leather
  • Cold Weather Group
  • Premium Audio Group
  • Body Color Top & Fenders

Backstory -

Here's the backstory with a little about me. I have grown up around many different types of vehicles; learning their components, capabilities, parts, etc... Which is nice, because being a girl people totally underestimate my knowledge in this area. My dad has always had some type of off-road vehicle, mostly SxS's. Everything we have owned has been lifted with all kinds of aftermarket accessories.

When I turned 16 I wanted a Jeep. We looked for the right Jeep, finally settling on a 2013 Black JKU. Now of course I wanted it lifted :) The process began. We lifted it and put 35's on it. My mom was a little uneasy about the fact that they had just given their 16-year-old a lifted Jeep, just because of the fact of safety. After a short time, that Jeep got traded for my car which was a Mercedes CLA-250. I liked that car but I kept wanting to go back to my Jeep.

When I turned 18 I told my dad I wanted to get rid of my car and trade it for a Jeep, this time a white one. I looked and looked for a Jeep with the exact options I wanted. I finally stumbled upon the one I currently owned, so we went and traded my car for this Jeep.

This Jeep is my daily driver which is why we waited this long to put mods on it.

This project is also something my dad and I are going to do together. He purchased a 2019 Sting Grey JLUR this year to build with mine. We've also been thinking about building up a few Jeeps a year and selling them. That idea is still under consideration.

The name Big Shot Jeeps includes my Jeep (The Original "Big Shot" lol), his Jeep (yet to be named), and any merchandise we create.

Feel free to follow us on Instagram too, and follow the progress of our builds and adventures we go on. I haven't posted anything yet, but as soon as these projects get going, I will be posting a bunch!

@bigshot4x4 - This is the Insta for my build (2019 White JLU Sahara)
@ bigshotjeeps - This is the Insta for my JLU, my dads JLU, any merch we create, and any future builds we do.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The only things I have done to this Jeep at the times of these photos is:

  • Tint Windows
  • Take Running Boards Off
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I will start out by posting photos of my Jeep stock. My Jeep is currently in the shop getting everything put on it. Once I get it back, I will post more pictures along with updated specs :)

How do you like the 6-pack shocks? I am looking at the same life and shock combo. Any issues with them?

You have a gorgeous build.

I never would consider white, but what you’ve done really makes it look good. Do share more pictures. Is it a manual transmission?

BTW: cute dog.
