Ordered Sahara for wife, cant molest it too much, she is vertically challenged so no lift.

Bought Eastwoods inner frame coating, fluid film and anti rust plus rivets to take the liners in wheel wells out. Already have rust encapsulator paint and chasis black epoxy.

Will power was it underneath and rip it apart to properly rust proof.

Have set of gpc grab handles and cargo cover, ordered with dual tops and mopar mats.

Will clean up bay in garage and fabricate a lift for hardtop.

also will Llumar PPF put on it and some mopar mud flaps.

debating doing ceramic coating myself

As far as rim size do you do any full on off-roading? If not go with the larger rim for looks, if you off-road smaller rim for the ability to air down and have that much more tire before it damages the rim.

I looked those up very cool combo. I have some tsw rims that have the black pattern, but it is cool how they did the silver in a sort of sudo flame look on it. Those will be pretty sharp with some 35s
Yeah don’t want to rule out off-roading completely so most likely will go with 18” rims. Thanks for the feedback on the rims, someone here in forum has same rims but with red flame pattern and they looked very cool on his red rubicon.

I'm now leaning toward rough country drop steps, for wife and kid these seems to provide the right 'help' compared to Roam.

How much clearance do you loose?
I couldn't find anywhere how high the step is from the ground for a Rubicon with 35s. I did find out from a member that Roam steps are 19" high on front and 20" for the rear so I'll probably go with them.

Meanwhile, following items already ordered: Mopar spare reinforcement kit, Mopar mats, Mopar grab handles, Mopar sill guards and Shorty 5" antenna. I'll order the tires and wheels next week when labor day sale kicks in.

Grats that I’ll be awesome. I’m going to run stock for a few years and then upgrade
