I'm finally getting around to a build thread about a year into my wife's ownership of her first Jeep. She chose to name her Jeep "Warthog" after the vehicle in "Red vs Blue" or RVB. If you are not familiar with the show, here is an exerpt from the episode with the "Warthog". https://rvb.fandom.com/wiki/Red_Gets_a_Delivery

She purchased her Jeep from Ourisman in MD for 8% under invoice in March of 2019. Sting Gray JLUR with 3.6, 850RE, Packages 24R, ERC, DFT. Factory options were keyless entry, steel bumper group, safety group, LED, 8.4 radio, trailer tow, cold weather, body color flares and hard top. This was her first Jeep and her only requirement was she wanted AEV Savegre wheels with 35" tires.

She sent the Jeep to "The Car Guys" in Millersville MD for new car paint correction and for coating the first weekend due to the dealership prep crew leaving some swirl marks on the doors. The did an amazing job and I could read the writing on paint cans on the desk through the reflection. We pulled the spare tire and the rock rails so that we could get the paint protection applied behind the OEM rock rails and the spare.

We went to the Automotive Skills Center on the military base to install her Rock Hard Patriot sliders that she custom ordered with the plate delete to use as a step and also for protection from car doors in parking lots.

For communication we are eventually going to have both a CB and GMRS. We looked at a few antenna mounting solutions and decided on the Quadratec Tailgate Mount with the Firestick, Quick Connect Antenna Mount and a Uniden CMX 760. The Uniden is zip tied behind the glove box for the time being but I plan on finding a more permanent mounting solution in the future.

With a 6’8”parking garage at work we had some height limitations. After searching the forums for vehicle heights after lifts and seeing so many heights listed depending on vehicle weight we went with the AEV 2" Spacer lift, AEV Savegre wheels and 37x12.5 Nitto Ridge Grappler's. Due to the extra weight of the spare we decided to install the Mopar Tailgate Reinforcement at the same time. Total height after install is 76.5 giving her 1.5 inches of clearance at her work parking garage. After the lift install she had Formula One 15% tint applied on the back and side windows at AP Tinting in Maryland.

With the lift and tires on, the first trip was to the Mid Atlantic Overland Festival in PA where we met some great people and had a great time using Purple Lizard maps to explore Rothrock State Forest and the surrounding area.

" Warthog" after the vehicle in "Red vs Blue" or RVB"

Lol or the vehicle from the most popular Microsoft Video Game Series ever made...Halo, from which RVB was created.
But that wouldn't get RVB more watchers!

We were getting ice cream with the local Jeep club and talking about what kind of rubbing might happen with the 37's and the 2" AEV Spacer lift so one of the members let my wife try to crawl up his 42" tires so that I could check clearances. The back wheel barely contacted the black plastic piece behind the wheel.

We decided to head out to Peters Mill in VA to run the trail and check in to get her first Badge of Honor.

For some reason all of the pictures from Peters Mill are sideways except for these 2.
