Picked up my Jeep from Off-Road Evolution yesterday and I have been smiling from ear to ear since. The only thing they weren't able to do was the axle gussets. The kit they had was a prototype and it just wasn't ready yet.
Was that prototype kit just gussets or a truss as well?

Felt it too when I was putting on the spare! They’re 37 x 12.5 Nittos.
Nice build! Haha yeah getting that spare up and down is a pain by yourself.

This was the prototype kit. Looks like they tested it this weekend on their Jeep and are looking at a March release. Hoping when I get it, it will last me a while so I don't have to spend big money on axles yet.

Wow, nice builds!
Every time I see pics of Sting Gray, it confirms to me that it is my color. I go Friday 3-1-19 to hopefully place my order, as long as the dealership I'm going with doesn't try something shady on me. I will at least drive mine around stock for a little while before adding goodies.

Can't wait to see the builds in action, post more pics & some videos.
Boy, I am getting more excited seeing builds like this. Sweeeeeet!

Looks awesome guys. Here’s mine: I couldn’t exactly go coilovers as I originally wanted and had to down grade to only regular 2.5 King shocks with a 2.5 EVO enforcer lift on yep, same wheels KMC229 with Nitto Ridge Grapplers.i think I picked mine up from EVO days after you. I wish I didn’t order the factory mopar reinforced tail gate. I think the EVO tail gate is stronger and holds the tire much closer the the mopar. I’m still undecided which rear bumper to go with but I pulled the trigger on an on sale Poison Spyder stumpy. Not sure if I’ll install it or not. The EVO bumper is coming out soon.

Had a little time to work on the Jeep yesterday with my dad. Installed the GPCA grab handles. I know there are already handles but I prefer the location of these when it comes to handles. Seem like really nice quality, kind of wish I went with the red for a touch of color.

Also installed the innovative JK products under seat dual ARB compressor mount. They have great instructions which made install easy. I still have to wire it up which to me is the scary part because I don't know crap about wiring. Luckily the instructions from innovative JK products walks your through it so I'm hoping to wire it up tomorrow.

Unfortunately had to cut a bit of the all weather floor mat to make it fit.

There are connection points on each side of the Jeep for the supplied air up and down kit. Just gotta drill 2 small holes on the front outside leg of the front seats.

I will take more pictures tomorrow when I wire it up.

How are you liking this set up so far on road? I’ve been going back and forth with this same set up or with the mc game changer

Great set up highly recommend. Adjustable Kings allow a softening or hardening to fit your on/off road preference. Game changer is too stiff and although I appreciate the advertising of metal cloak their quality isn’t and solid as EVO with KING shocks. Simply the best. Talk to Zan at off road EVO. He will set you up even if you don’t buy there. But I highly recommend them.

So yesterday I went to fit up the lod signature sliders and found out due to the new mounting point of the Evo long arm kit they are not able to be bolted on. The long arm kit blocks the rear body mount that the slider kit bolts on to. So I took off the stock sliders and put on the bushwhacker pinch seam guards. I took the sliders and the Jeep over to SRD in Vista. They are going to cut off the rear slider mount and fabricate something that works with the new suspension.

The bushwhacker guards seem nice. The front part of the pinch seem has 2 bolts that push out the guards a bit and make it so you can't get it completely flat.

Nice. Yeah I heard that LOD and EVO arms don’t match up. There is a work around I’m told with modifying the slider bolt on. Let me know how vista works out. Super interested.....

Picked up the Jeep from SRD and the sliders look great! They made a bracket to bolt to outside of the new long arm mounts and a step down to make sure the front bracket fits against the frame .I wasn't aware of this but apparently the front arms new mounting point also gets in the way of the LOD sliders. But they figured it out and I couldn't be happier.
