And I thought my 16 week wait was long!! Are they building each individual piece by hand?? 😂
They'd want to be!

Ordering a build from Australia is a vastly different process to doing it in the US.
Between the offerings and options changing due to microchip and other supplies being affected by Covid worldwide and one of the factories being flooded temporarily, ordering my dream car has been a lesson in patience that's for sure!

Do you have an ETA?
No eta as yet.

Dealership (who is a friend of mine) said "from experience, it looks to be anywhere between December to February at this point in time, but I can't give you any guarantees".

I mean, it could be worse. Another order that went in at the same time as mine was mid-build during the flood, so that guy had to start the waiting game from scratch. And in the past, they've delayed a boatload of orders by 6 months before because the ship was turned around when they didn't pass quarantine upon arrival at Australian shores.

You've got the patience of a saint, that's for sure!

After seeing your posts over the past few months, I feel like we should throw you a digital party when it finally shows up, lol. Rooting for you to get it soon!

Wow, either of those situations would have killed me!
I’m hoping yours arrives soon!

Last week I finally got my JLUR into the shop for some new shoes and a lift! I decided to go with the BFG KO2 35x12.5 R17s with the AEV 2.5” Dualsport RT Lift and she sure is sitting pretty!

Before:

and after:

While at the shop, I had my ARB twin air compressor installed under the passenger front seat and hooked up to Aux4 using the Innovative Products mounting bracket. Yay onboard air! 😄

A few days later the Mopar hinge reinforcement showed up and we installed the relocation tire carrier with the hinge reinforcement bracket.

Needless to say, I’m loving the new additions and boy does she look goooood! 🤩
Love it man. Totally kick ass rig. I got the same setup for compressor/mount. It’s a slick and hidden method for air.

I’m picking up my Turtleback trailer next week. They had some issues mounting the Bundutec RTT and had to do custom fabrications to get installed. By the way, is that an FSR RTT?

You bet I will. The wife and I are stoked to get some fall/winter camping here in SoCal :)

Did you just do a particularly good job shaving the fenders for the lights, or is that the full RuggedRidge kit for the fenders? Or is that a different/better kit?
