Awesome build and pictures!

@Brian0128 share any thoughts on the XG Cargo Gammas? Thinking of grabbing set for my JL!

I've got them and love them. Adds a ton of storage in otherwise dead space. I also use the space between the bag and the window to wedge a tree saver on one side and a tow strap on the other. The Bartact seats also come with two small molle bags that I installed on the Gammas, they are perfectly sized to hold emergency ration bars and emergency water bags.

I have them bought and installed. I'd say nice overall and a good use of space. Keeps things from sliding around in the back. My only complaints are that XG gammas are relatively expensive and they only come in one color. I painted mine.
Cheers!

We went to the auto skills center on the local military base to use the lift and alignment rack to install the Synergy LCA’s and the Synergy front and rear track bars.

I also have e the AEV 2” Spacer lift on my JLUR. I’m running 35’s and really like how your 37’s are sitting in the wells! I’m running 8.5 caster with my Teraflex Sport LCA’s. Do you know what length your adjustable LCA’s were set at to achieve 6.5 range caster? Thanks in advance!

I started at 24.5” but had to do an additional full revolution of the adjuster once mounted an on the alignment rack.

Very nice!
The AEV Savegre II wheels are the only wheels I have liked so far, other than the OEM Rubicon wheels. So, I'm happy to see what they look like on a Sting Gray JLUR. Looks like a fun build.
:like:

Great Post! How did you like the Off-road 101 class? Would you recommend it?

I recommend all of Kyle’s courses. It’s actually very affordable to do a private 101/201 2 day course. You should look into it.

We went up to Tuscarora State Forest in PA to check out the fall foliage today. It took about 5 hours to do 65 miles on gravel.

That looks phenomenal, I’m certainly more interested in overlanding vs. crawling. Would you say this is worth the drive from NC? The whole trail is 65 mileson gravel? Could start planning to make it up there next year.

If I was coming up from NC, I would most likely buy all of the Purple Lizard maps for PA and link a 7 day trip together.

Adams Jeep in Aberdeen, MD gave us a call after the 1st of the year and replaced the aluminum steering box with the new steel one under the TSB that we had scheduled at the end of 2020. The Jeep steers significantly better on the highway at 70mph.

It was a sunny but chilly weekend here in Maryland so we decided to take a day trip to Assateague National Sea Shore OSV area.

So glad i found your build. Ive been doing some heavy research on my wheel choice for a couple of weeks now, I think im gonna go with the SAVEGRE II's now they look so good on the Sting Gray.
