This is my first post of my rig and super excited for how it's turned out so far. It is a daily driver, but wanted it to be capable as well. I have a few things I still want to do to beef it up, exhaust, reinforce the axles, regear, etc. but taking the opportunity to get acquainted with what it can do so far. Big thanks to Mike, Dave, Eddie and the rest of the team at Bull Run 4x4 here in Northern Virginia. Awesome team to work with. I've had to put a stop on some of the next steps due to some unexpected family matters, but still hope to get out more in the spring and join in some of the events around here. Thanks all!

Thanks! I want to figure out the best way to go to beef up my axles. The wheels and tires are heavy, so when I start getting off road more again, I want to make sure I'm not going to bust them on more difficult crawls. Also, want to do skid plates, sliders, and debating on a regear still. It's not as bad as I thought, so on the fence with that one.

Solid plan! Amazing how well the 2.0L/8-speed do with covering the 37's right?

I'm on a similar path, looking at aluminum skids and 4.88's and axle shafts at some point.

Yeah, I'm really glad I went with the 2.0T honestly. I'm just on the fence in terms of axle shafts. If you land on some, curious what your thoughts are. Thanks!

Sweet build! Like those wheels. I think it would add a nice cosmetic touch to your Panda black/white theme if you add the black satin grill.

I like those fenders and bumpers.

This would go well with your theme.

I love the Rockmonsters. I’ve never seen them powdercoated or in a light color. They look very different!

Thanks! Yeah, I went back and forth forever it feels like as all the hauk stuff took months to get made. I finally decided to go for it. I was skeptical, but happy the way they turned out. I wanted to do something different. Appreciate all the support!

Seems we have a few things in common!

Love your Jeep. Looking great!

I strongly considered powder coating my wheels white. I really like that look. I was worried about distortion from the heat from powder coat baking and / or O-ring sealing after media blasting the original finish. Having any issues holding air?

I also really like the Hauk bumpers and fenders. Along with the Rock Monsters, the Jeep theme is "I have bolts. Lots and lots of bolts." I think it looks great. I'll be using a stamped steel bumper, but I still really like the look of the Hauk stuff.

Looking forward to seeing how the build goes!
