2020 Rubicon Recon
Hi Everyone,

Today I purchased a ‘20 Rubicon Recon and couldn’t be more excited! I’m a former WK2 SRT8 owner, and I’ve been itching to join the Wrangler family for years.

I’ll continue to keep this thread updated with progress as I go. First Impression: out of the box, she’s absolutely sublime.

Those are pricey! But worth it IMO. They really add a nice flare to the interior.

Installed my Warn Mid Height Grill Guard Tube yesterday. Love how it enhanced the OEM steel front bumper.

Tinted the glass. 10% up front, 20% in the back for the win.

Shipping times in general right now are delayed, so it’s taking a bit longer to get the goodies.

En route:
Borla Climber Exhaust
JTops Freedom Sun Shade
Quadratec Flashlight Holder
Rugged Ridge Multi-dash Mount
Maximus-3 Steath Front License Plate Mount
Quadratec Seat Bracket Flashlight Mount
Quadratec 550 Paracord Grab handles

Are those the RED ones with all the stuff to be a full replacement?

What’s up Fam! Hope everyone out there is well. Took a build break over the past few months. Excited to report I just installed the Dynatrac Endurosport 2” lift kit. Immediate impression, the ride quality is much improved with less brake dive and body roll through turns. It also takes lumps and bumps on the road pretty effortlessly. My rig sees about 80/20 road/off-road as a daily driver, and I mostly stick to fun trails, not much of a crawler, so ride quality was important. It’s evident these shocks were made with that type of rig/driver combo in mind. So if that sounds like you, you’ll be happy with this lift kit. Throwing a set of Methods with likely 37’ KO2’s next month, will keep you all updated.
