I always meant to start a build journal to track my progress. Looking through my pictures made me decide to go ahead and document it.

I got my JLU Sport S in January of 2018 after trading in my 2dr Sport JK.

I absolutely hated the look of the stock wheels and tires. I stuffed some Black Rhino El Cajon 17x9 wheels and Nitto Terra Grapler G2s 285/75/17 on stock suspension.

Next was to put on take off Rubicon suspension so that I could gain a little more clearance. I gained about 1.5" from the Rubi suspension.

I would like to give a shoutout to Marcus from @River City Offroad . He was a huge help in determining what lift I wanted to go with and provided excellent customer service. Thanks to him I decided to go with the Rock Krawler 2.5" Flex lift. It turned out to be exactly what I was looking for.

For anyone that enjoys riding with your top off but gets caught by surprise rain showers, I would highly recommend the Smittybilt Cab Cover. Super convenient and east to put on. Keeps the entire cab dry.

Today I installed the Poison Spyder Crawler front bumper and skid plate. Turned out beautiful.

Later this week I will be putting on my Rusty's Rear Fascia Cover and Poison Spyder Crawler rear bumper and tire carrier.

That bumper is stunning! I thought that I was sold on the Artec, but this is giving me second thoughts.
