Installed..

Front Before; 35 3/4"
Front After: 36 1/2" (.75" gain)
Rear: 37"

I assume if it were not for the added weight of the steel bumper and winch that it would be just about level front and back.. Much, much better now...

Front before: 35 3/4"

Front After: 36 1/2

How long did the debases take? I’ve heard stories of others saying hours (3+?).

Also, I’m really liking your build. I’ve been looking black and didn’t think of billet until seeing yours. I have Rubi wheels / tires and sliders already. You may have a twin.

Debadging it was a serious pain! The side JEEP lettering emblems took about 3 hours alone...

I have a 2018 JL Sport Unlimited and will be adding a few things as time ticks onward. I'll mainly use this thread to keep track of my progress. If you are looking for a pimped out rock crawler, this thread will not be for you :P

I mainly drive city roads and once a month or so I'll take it off road on easy to moderate trails. Nothing extreme.
  • 06-04-2018 - Purchased
  • 06-10-2018 - Picked up a set of take off JL Rubicon Wheels
  • 06-11-2018 - Scored a local set of take off JL Rubicon Rock Rails
  • Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac 255/75/R17
Photo at purchase (06-04-2018)

I'll add more photos and info as I go along.

Install dates for ordered items thus far
  • 06-13-2018: Warn Stubby Bumper
  • 06-14-2018: 255/75R17 Tires and Rubicon Wheels
  • 06-15-2018: Warn Winch and Rubicon Rock Rails
  • 06-19-2017: Gas Filler Door (as long as it arrives as scheduled)
I should have a more complete looking Jeep by Friday (06-15-2018) evening as the only item missing will be the gas filler door.
How are you liking the Duratrac tires so far? How are they on pavement/highways? Fairly quiet?
