Sold my 2010 2 Door Rubicon because I wanted something bigger/ plan for the future.

Bought a Manual Trans, soft top, JLU Sport on March 28th!
Options include the HD electrical package and HD rear Dana 44
Roll up windows and manual locks!

This will be the build thread. The goal is to have the basics done before summer starts. Can't miss any trail time this year! I would love to finally run the Dusy Ershim but I want a rear locker at least and I don't think re-gearing and lockers will happen until late this year or next year.

Phase one:

Cooper STT Pro 315/70R17-Removed Feb 1st 2019

Cooper STT Pro 37x12.50R17- Installed Feb 1st 2019!

JCR Classic Sliders- installed 5/8/2018

Front Bumper-Lod signature series shorty-installed 5/2518
+winch reinstalled

Air Single HO compressor installed-6/30/18

Oil pan/Manual trans skid-EVO-3/1/2019

Phase two-2019

Ultimate dana 44-Installed Jan 26 2019

Rear Arb locker- 7/10/19

Synergy HD Tie rod- 2019

Metal cloak track bar- 2018

Can't wait!

Should be a pretty sweet setup. I too am hoping VKS starts pumping out some of their front bumpers for the JL soon.

Tires and JCR sliders. I’ll get some day shots.

Also, a 35” tire does not fit with stock wheels on the spare tire carrier. It will rub the bumper a lot.

Since I plan to replace the bumper I went ahead and did some “custom” modifications to it. I just chopped a bunch off and drilled holes in the bottom for water drainage. I’ll post some pics tomorrow.

I read that if you use a relocation bracket for the spare tire carrier the 35’s will fix no problem. Jeep looks great

Stopped by metalcloak and picked up their very recently released track bar.

My front axle is shifted a bit and causing some dogging to the right. This’ll fix it.
