Well after about 5,000 miles of ownership I figure it's about time to do an intro and start my build thread. I am a long time VW owner, turned Jeep owner. My last car was a 2017 VW Alltrack that I lifted and put A/T tires on. That was fun for a while, but the value dropped significantly and I wanted out from under it. Back in July of this year I got a new job and decided to start looking into Wranglers. I moved from MD to FL and the Jeep presence down here is unreal, the bug bit me hard. I ended up getting into a "leftover" 2018 Granite 2 door sport. It had the 2.0 Turbo with hard top. Then the fun started....

Interior:
Removed rear seat
Rugged Ridge rear cargo liner
Rugged Ridge sill covers

Exterior:
Rubicon matte black grill w/ JT inserts
Rubicon painted fenders
Bestop Trektop
Rusty's Offroad spare delete
Vector tailgate UFO's
Rugged Ridge stubby HD front bumper w/ winch protector
Rugged Ridge HD rear bumper
Rugged Ridge nerf bars w/ step
Rugged Ridge 9500lb winch
AVS Aeroskin
AVS rain guards
Pixel fender decal
Dynoxmax muffler delete

Suspension/Wheels:
4 door JLUR "takeoff" suspension (bumpers/tow/skytouch)
Teraflex 1.5" spacer kit
Teraflex bumpstops
Rough Country dual stabilizer kit
Rotiform Six OR 17x9
Toyo Open Country 35x12.5

Most of my mods have been wallet friendly which was my initial goal. I do want to get an actual lift kit that's made for the 2 door along with some beefier steering components. Overall I am very happy with the outcome and enjoy driving this thing everyday. Future mods will end up being the lift, LED lighting, intake/tune/catch can, and I am sure much more.
