    Default 2017 JKU Build

    Figured I'd post up a build thread for this thing...

    Bought a brand new JKUR with 12 miles on it when we drove it off the lot...

    She was happy

    Very next weekend we took it up to Sedona to play around... had less than 400 miles on it at this point..

    Ended up with a Crawler Conceptz front bumper, Warn winch, and some trimmed flares in preparation for 35s. I also replaced the factory coils with Teraflex coils to give me about 1 1/2 inch of lift and I also added a small spacer to compensate for the weight of the winch / bumper.

    Last week I took it over to Kyle Prettymans house and he welded in my Artec Trusses front and rear

    The day after I picked it up from Kyle, I installed my Ballistic Fab wheel spacers so I can run my factory wheels, and bolted up my 35s...

    Next up on the list is 4.88 gears, a Crawler Conceptz rear bumper and tire carrier and..... that's pretty much it for now for the big stuff. I'd like to get a security drawer for under the seat for when the top / doors are off, and I'd also like to get some insulation for the hardtop. Jeep has about 5200 miles on it now and we've loved every one of those miles.

    Looks like a solid build and super sessy at that. Can't wait to see it on the trails.

    Any license plate ideas?

    I'm available for showings on Fridays and weekends. We can make sure it's tall enough now to avoid scratching the top.

    Had a blast down in Mexico this past weekend. Found the current weak link in the suspension...

    New shocks and brake lines have been ordered. After I get those on, I"ll find the sweet spot and add limit straps and adjust bump stops accordingly.

    She still looks good, even with 3 shocks
