I picked up my JLUR from Kim @ Superior and drove it 470 miles home with zero issues.
Almost zero wind noise so no adjustments needed like the Sahara I had.

I had to fly to DC the next day so I turned the JEEP over to my Son.
He didn't wait on me to get home, going straight to work on it the next morning.
Basically he did everything we did in January on the JL Sahara I sold.

Installed a 3/4 spacer up front (no rear spacer) to level it and then put the tires/wheels on.
Then the winch/bumper went on and he wired the winch IN/OUT and the lightbar into the aux switches just like on the Sahara.
Tinted the windows with some leftover tint I had.
Also installed a Pruveeo dash cam and did the Homelink mod.

He did all of this and then went fishing that afternoon.

We have since lifted it 2inches in front and 1 inch in the rear, it now sits perfect for 35's.(pics to come)

I also moved the dashcam to a slightly different position.

It is a Barricade copy purchased off of ebay.
Listed as a JK Rock Crawler winch bumper. Normally $150-170

I just noticed that he cut about 5 inches off the antenna and painted it black also.

Congrats. I parked next to a Granite JLU Rubicon yesterday at the gym. Absolutely gorgeous in person. It had me rethinking my Sting Gray order. This one was completely stock with black leather, yours must look fantastic with the tan. Enjoy!

Can you share the link to the 3/4" spacer you used? I'd like to check it out.
Probably not going to lift my Granite JLUR but leveling it out sounds like a good idea.

Rough Country has a 3/4 front spacer for the JL/JK.
Also ebay has quite a few 3/4 and 1inch front spacers, 1 inch removes all of the rake.

Looks great! May I ask what type of tires you have on and why put spacers on the front and not back? Thx
