Hello, my name is Ludski. Just picked up my 18 JLUR.

Her name is Achelois. A Greek goddess, translates to “she who washes away the pain”.

I have big plans for this girl. My previous Jeep, the BlackWidow, was a JK on one tons, 43s, 2 door conversion, 16” ORI struts and more.

Loved watching your progress over the years with Blackwidow. Can't wait to see what you do with the JL!

Installed an Idrive as well as the alpine audio upgrade. Includes new tweeters, amplifier and subwoofer. All plug and play.
Idrive definitely has a noticeable difference. Not a tuner, all it does is change the throttle percentage. So better take off. Top speed will be the same. HP will be the same.

Alpine made a huge difference. Much crisper highs. Actual separation of lows and highs. Definitely happy with the purchase. Install took about 2 hours or so.

Also installed the MOPAR aux switch, since mine did not have it. Install for that took 3-4 hours. Little more of a pain in the ass because the directions sucked and every connection was in such a small area and the wires were exact fit, so there was no room for my hands.

Also put some 37x13.5 Nitto Ridge Grapplers on some 17” Method NV wheels at stock height.

Hi,

Though on the JK: How were the ORI struts? Feasible for daily driving?
Can they be constantly connected to an air tank and air management system so to lower or lift the Jeep on the fly and set different firmness settings?

In general, better than traditional coil overs?

Got to break her in this past week. Nothing crazy, gotta get a feel for non 43” tires. She did awesome. In love with this Jeep so far.
Also did Artec inner fender liners up front and did their fender chop brace kit and spare delete kit. Added ARB twin compressor on MORE mount and added a Poison Spyder rear bumper with Highbeam Offroad Scene LED lights.

Figured while she was fresh. Did some paint correction and a Ceramic Coating.

Waiting for Poison Spyder to release their brawler rockers and for Artec to release their 2.0 turbo skid system. And going to be doing a GoRhino Roof rack. Love their design and how low it is.

How much rubbing did you have with the 37x13.5's onnthere with no lift? I know the fender chop should help some, but you looked to have it fairly flexed out in the one picture so very interested in your thoughts. I prefer to lift as little as required, your set up would be ideal for me.

Once i removed the lower half of the fenders, i could fit 40s easily.

Ordered my Motobilt rocker armor yesterday and my 67Designs phone mount comes in tomorrow.

Just waiting on Banks to release an intake and exhaust system for the 2.0. I saw afe has some systems, as well as magnaflow, but I’m not wanting to run their kits.

Also installed Poison Spyder JK Brawler front bumper w/ skid, smittybilt X2O winch and have some more Highbeam Off Road LEDs on the way.

And also put on a new bronze rubicon decal from AlphaVinyl in Georgia.
