Well, after months of ordering parts I’m finally finished with my build!

Omg a lot of hard work has gone into building this jeep the way I wanted it for the type of off roading I do.
I would like to say a big thank you to Marcus Allen at 4Wheel parts who was was on point with getting me the majority of my parts.

The cabinet system I built myself out of aluminum, it does lift up with
the help of gas struts so I can still access the storage space below it.
It is on rolling bearing slides with locking handles.

I’ll list all of the upgrades that were installed with a link incase anyone would like to purchase these items. The majority of parts came from 4 Wheel parts, however most of the links are to other companies because I could not find the part on their website.
Hopefully I inspire others for ideal for their build.

2018 JLUR fully loaded with every option except heated seats, really bummed they missed it on my order!

Beautiful build for sure.. You really dumped some major money into that Rubicon.. I love the idea of the camper top thing but wow that's pricey. Super cool setup for camping as you can pretty much stop anywhere you want, camp and throw some DX with the CB, or hit local repeaters with the HAM. Well done overall.

Thank you!
I was so over ground tent camping, trying to find a spot for all the jeeps, flat, not rocky.
Now I can stop anywhere and be set up in one minute!

Are builds ever REALLY complete?
Lol stop! If my wife hears you she will get pissed!
She already lost it when I told her what I spent.
I will be working on a new cabinet system out of carbon fiber. The aluminum one is great, but a carbon fiber one with red Kevlar weave drawers would look killer and be supper light!

Did you make the drawers yourself?
Hey
Yes, it was a job and half.
All aluminum.
I’m thinking of building the same thing out of carbon fiber over Christmas.
I forgot to post these pic of the rear light
