Figured it's a good time to look back at where we started and where we are now. I myself am coming up on year and 15k miles.

The day I brought it home.

I definitely love the changes you made to your Jeep! I also see you got your Jeep at Fitzpatrick's in Ansonia, great dealer!

Born 12-20-18 and picked up on 1-12-19. Family Xmas gifts included a full set of weathertech floor mats, the Stealth front plate bracket, and slp bull bar from maximus3. The plate bracket was put on in the dealer parking lot and the bumper bar was installed as soon as i got home later that night. First pics were taken a couple days later.

Still a ways to go before I can say it's done. Just received the Metalcloak 3.5" dual rate springs, and am waiting for the shock relocation brackets and 6-packs to show up. Than it's time to pull the Dynatrac Endurosport and find her a new home. Yup, I made the classic noob mistake of thinking 2" and 35's would be enough.

Oh yeah. they crushed it, from turning around a factory order in 2 weeks, to throwing in a free soft-top bag before we pulled out of the lot.

About 3 months old. Added the following within a few weeks of picking her up:
- Maximus Classic Hoop( very rare to see red and I love it)
- Baja LP6’s ( needs no explanation )
- Raptor Side-Steps
- Weathertec front splash guards

Only thing I’m debating is adding an ABE or AEV bumper. The new AEV’s are slated to arrive in late fall from chatting with one of the reps. As for tires, may add slightly larger ones at some point but really I have more than I need as is. Can’t say enough good things about my 2020 Rubi. I’ve had several Jeeps in the past and this thing has it all.

Factory order delivered on 12/7/2018, the drive home was the only time I drove it stock. Built it up in phases and have more planned, but here’s where I’m at

The day I got her. 19 miles on the odometer, because I took her on a good test drive.

Almost a year later, still unmodified but with a few nice decals added.

Just a few weeks ago, with a Rubicon Takeoff suspension, Rubi Steel bumper, black plastidip on the grille to cover up the damaged paint (damaged by brushguard :asshat: ) 275/65R18 Pirelli Scorpion AT+ tires (installed the day before the photo) and a Bestop Trektop. I think now all I need is a winch and I'll be happy!
