So first Jeep here! Love it so far. Last vehicle was a 2017 Ford Raptor. Building this out for camping with my kids. I have a lot of plans and will as to this as I sort them out but this is the start of something I’m going to love. Will say though that dang fridge is a life saver for work here in Georgia.

Very nice. Kids will love it as it develops into the overlander that it needs to be for your family lifestyle. One question, you mentioned that you had a raptor. May I ask what made you decide to switch from that to the Rubicon?

They switch was honestly brought on by chance. We were looking at getting a larger vehicle for my wife and the dealership I was at thought I was trading in the Raptor. When I told them I wasn’t they got pretty disappointed and they walked the owner out and he offered me quite a bit more than I paid for it. It had 18,000 miles on it and he offered me $70,000. I was out west at the time and they were selling them for closer to $90,000. Mine was off their lot in a week. I drove my wife Explorer around before jumping on the new JL.

Tried my hand at wrapping for the first time and ordered a winch and grill guard. Plenty more to come, I’ll put a list together once I have a chance.

Looking good Tyler! Keep us updated with the progress. Also, let me know if you want to get together at some point since we're about 45mins from each other. Would love to see your build in person

I may be doing a trip up to the old Georgia Traverse this coming month or April. I’ll let you know if I head up that way.

Yup it is the American Adventure Lab. I got one of the early sets before they started powder coating. I love it. I have had it about a year now and it’s done treated me quite well and the guys over are super helpful.
