* Updated 6/2/21

I purchased the Jeep new in May, 2019. It is a 2019 Sting Gray Unlimited Rubicon. It is my daily driver, but I am planning big trips with it at least once a year, and many weekend trips to TX off-road parks. My build is going slow, but I will update as things are added from the plan or if plans change.

Mods done so far:
Rydonair Shorty Antenna
Seven Sparta Dead Pedal
Vehicle OCD Center Console organizer
Masion Paracord Grab Handles
CoolTech LLC CB kit
67 Designs Rail Mount
Warn winch plate for factory steel Bumper
Smittybilt X2O 10,000 lb winch with synthetic line
Factor 55 1.0 Fairlead
Factor 55 Flatlink
Metalcloak Undercloak Belly Skids
KC Hilites G34 LED cube lights on A-pillar mounts
KC light covers
Metalcloak Front Differential Cover and Skid.
Metalcloak Rear Differential Skid
Outback Adventure Products JL tailgate table
Fifteen52 Traverse HD Wheels
Warn Elite Rear Bumper & Tire Carrier
Metalcloak 3.5" Game Changer lift
Adam's front driveshaft
Synergy Mfg. Drag link and Tie Rod - on order
Fox Steering stabilizer - awaiting install
Tazer JL mini
37" Nitto Trail Grapplers

Planned Mods:
Sliders - thinking SHRockworks but still undecided.
Re-gear - Thinking 5.13
RCV Axles
ARB Twin compressor with GRIMM mount
KC Hilites Grvity Pro 6 lights in Driving Beam for front bumper.

As it sits today:

Picked up my Stingray JLUR yesterday. Also is my DD. No mods in the works yet, but they will come. Good looking rig.

Great looking Jeep!

I totally agree about Sting Grey being the most interesting and best color. It goes from a beautiful, smokey light grey in direct sunlight to almost black in the evening. It is similar to other Jeep colors from the JK years, and just as dynamic.

I ordered this '19 JLUR in Feb to be my daily ride, but also to make a few big trips every year. In April she performed beyond belief at Moab EJS.

Good luck with you rig.

What did you do with your tire/wheel takeoffs? And if you sold them, can you please tell me where/how much?

Price was $1,199 direct from Metalcloak. As far as the weight, the kit weighs 179lbs. You do remove some crossmember pieces. I’m not sure how much the difference is as I didn't weigh the parts that I took off, but the added weight is probably around 150 lbs.

Added some KC Hilites Gravity G34 cube lights with the wide beam pattern on A-Pillar mounts and wired them up to the factory Aux 3 switch.

Installed the Outback Adventure Products JL Tailgater today. It was a super easy install and I really like how sturdy it feels. I will get some use out of it later this month with a planned trip to CO for some trail runs. Please pardon the dirty Jeep in these shots.

Finally, after a two month wait due to backorder I got my new wheels. Fifteen52 Traverse HD in Block Bronze. I took the wife on a nice leisurely drive along a Texas country road to break them in.
