Here's a build that I know a lot of you were following and were eager to see more of - the Nitto Tire/EVO Spicy Chicken Jeep JK Wrangler. This super clean and capable JK features a whole host of EVO products including their new sport cage and half doors.

The high clearance long arm is for the DTD. This, I believe, is the bolt on/weld on long arm kit

Ok, I see that now. I went back and looked at the kits on their site. I couldn't see the brackets very well on the frame to see what they were. Honestly IF I were
ever to upgrade from what I have to a coilover system I think this is what I'd go with.

Edit: Silly, but the silver paint threw me off too...

EVO Double D Bolt on or weld on long arm kit. Almost looks like it has a clevite bushing on one end though? I do not remember them being that way in the past.


To think this thing seemed to have been built the week before is amazing. One of the best looking jeeps and the build sheet is a dream list. Nice job.

Goes to show just how well they know the JK platform and could probably build it just as well with their eyes closed in 2 weeks...haha


I do like the half doors but I'm on the fence about the sport cage. I like the traditional look of round tubing vs. square tubing and square channel. No doubt it'll perform though. I did not know they made boat side sliders for the JK. Thought they were strictly for the TJ. They look good and appear to have a similar installation to that of PSC. This is a very clean and purpose built jeep. Far less flashy yet far more capable than some of the other companies with 40's on 24's..;)

I'm guessing it was designed to give a more 'doorless' feel. I kinda like it.

The bottom portion is removable so you can have it solid if wanted.....unless they changed the design again.

According to EVO, the doors were designed that way so that you can see where your sliders are in reference to obstacles while on the trail.

I personally love the look of them, but like most aftermarket half doors, I can't stand that the door handles are uneven. Drives me nuts!

Tacky . I think black is the new chrome. Black wheels, black accents on jeeps looks very tacky now. Since black is the only accent color people use for jeeps anymore. Getting old. When I think of gold on a offroad jeep, I think competition like king of hammer rigs. Gives it a race rig look.

Tacky . I think black is the new chrome. Black wheels, black accents on jeeps looks very tacky now. Since black is the only accent color people use for jeeps anymore. Getting old. When I think of gold on a offroad jeep, I think competition like king of hammer rigs. Gives it a race rig look.
Everyone has there own opinion. If that's what you like then power to ya. That's mine like I said both times

So is that a 40 hanging off their new body mounted tire carrier? I though it was good up to a 37.

It's rated to a 37, Mel will do what the hell he wants and test it with a 40. I personally have no doubts it'll be fine too.


IMO most clean and more importantly the most capable jeep at SEMA. I can't believe I like gold and red. They pulled it off nicely.

I've sat in an Evo jeep with doors at the expo and they didn't give me any visibility down. I love all the Evo stuff but these I'm not a fan of. The opening looks like a perfect place to funnel dust into the interior.

I am going to guess the only visibily out the lower hole is going to be out the passenger door to see the slider if you dont have a passanger (maybe?)? Driver side you are going to look over the door or maybe thats just me.

I am pretty sure if you are running half doors without an upper the dust is no suprize, and wont be much different. Most full half doors dont have the meat to seal and keep water out (except the factory halves which weigh a ton) so it is what it is. Really i think you either like the estethics or you dont.

Just my 2c.

I like the build, only question would be why the front currie instead of the air actuated no limits :)

I asked Mel the same question in Instagram last week. This was a sport, so no e-disco to set up the air actuated setup on.

Not really much through the passenger side either. Maybe a sliver with no passengers. But really the seat are directly behind that opening so they pretty much block any visibility. If I'm gonna invest in half doors I will probably invest in the rugged ridge doors. They actually have an inner door panel and seals some what from the elements giving you the option to run upper and be sealed off from the elements. Don't get me wrong I love spicy chicken and watched the build on Instagram and would wheel the shit out of that thing and hopefully this next spring I'll be dropping off my rig at Evo for its next evolution.

Actually, I'll have to disagree here. I have found that running Rugged Ridge half doors cuts dust coming up inside the cab from the front tires quite a bit. Also, they do have seals and they do surprisingly well to help keep water from splashing in and even if it's a little more than just a splash. Now, this is not to say that I don't like the EVO doors because I do and I do think they look cool.

Good points Eddie. I was more saying that if you are running with no upper (or even a full door with window down) on a dusty trail, you are going to take some of the trail home with you haha. I didn't know the RR doors sealed out the water that well so thanks for the correction.
