Curious...with this extensive of a build, why start with a Rubicon?
Wondering the same thing, depending on the answer might sway my build

I figure the xfer case is likely going in favor of an Atlas anyway. That doesn't leave much "rubicon".

There are a few creature comforts we could only get with the Rubicon that we really wanted such as deep tinted glass, 8.4 radio, auto air, remote start, and a few other things. Add to that the electronic sway bar, the Rubicon transfer case, and the $5500-$6000 back for the parts we took off and that helped us make the decision.

Bumpers, Rock Rails, and Armor should be done next while we’re waiting for the Red Neck Ram gear to come back.

Which programmer are you running? are you using the site harness from dana spicer to use the factory locker controls? or running a separate switch?

I’m using the Taser JL Mini, and using the Dana harness.
The rear locker switch will work with factory switch, I don’t know that anybody has been successful with getting the front factory switch to work, thus the front will have to be controlled with one of the Auxiliary switches.

Some more pics, build is getting closer I was able to do first test drive today, I love how it’s coming out.

I did find that the RockHard skid plate system will not clear the front Ultimate 60, so I ordered the Metal Cloak plates.
