Well I'm almost to the ordering stage. Here is what I got on my build list so far.

Evo enforcer kit with draglink flip kit
Bilstein 5100 shocks
Warn VR winch
Vacuum pump relocation kit
Ace rock sliders
Coast front driveshaft
Evo C gusset kit
Rock hard sport cage
ARB compact air compressor with ARB pump up kit, inflator with braided hose and evo mount kit for jk
Nitto 37" trail grappler tires
Sector shaft brace
And still deciding on wheels.
I'm chopping my factory fenders
Stubby my factory front bumper and mounting the winch behind the factory front bumper

I have just under 3 months to complete but should be a lot of fun!

Here is my stock pic as it sits today

Nice! :thumb:

You didn't ask for advice, but that never stopped me before. :cheesy:

I'd skip the ACE sliders and get something a little more...ahem...robust (EVO or LOD if you need a step).

Good luck!

I did actually ask for advice, it just wasn't on the forum :) I've been talking to Sean at northridge the last few days. I actually had him price out the evo sliders for me and I might go that route. I know the ace sliders aren't the greatest for strength, it'll be a couple weeks before I put in the order and I'm sure I will change my mind on the ace sliders :). Do you have any advice :) I'm definitely open to input.

I had the ACE sliders and now have the EVO ones. The ACE sliders are lower, stick out farther and flex into the jeep. Depending on the type of wheeling you do on JKX you may be fine. But you don't know and for something that could take quite a beating I'd go with EVO.

Not sure if you have it already, but if not, you should probably get some armor underneath your jeep too. :yup:

Sector shaft brace is probably not needed. :idontknow: At least that is what I've read/heard. :cheesy:

About those ACE sliders, are we talking the bolt-on or weld-ons. I can see the bolt-ons being an issue but the welded ones I would think should hold up well or are they made with a lower grade or thinner steel? I haven't picked mine out yet and the EVO, LOD, and ACE (weld) mentioned are all in the final running.

Back on topic, nice build you have planned and can't wait to see the progression pics.

Nice build, the sector shaft brace is designed for the drop pitman a set up. You do not need it with the drag link flip.

ACE uses mild steel, EVO MFG uses DOM (stronger)

Thanks chris, I wasn't sure about it so I figured better safe then sorry. Frees up some moola for other things.

I would go EVO sliders since it is EVO that is doing the event. And they are way stronger.

I had the bolt on ones. I can't speak to the grade of steel. But even if the weld on ones will not flex into the body, if they are mounted in the same location they still stick out further and are lower than the EVO sliders. Neither of which I found very helpful on the trail. :grayno: At least not on the rocks we have out here.

Oh and I have nothing against ACE, I thought they were great to deal with, I just think EVO makes a superior product. :yup:

I just installed the LOD sliders on mine last night and love them. I can't weld so that was why I went with them over EVO. Ordered them from Northridge and was told 3 weeks and they were at my door a week later. Either way you'll be happy.

Don't forget about how you're going to carry your spare 37. Also I'd highly recommend getting an oil pan skid as there is nothing protecting such a vital area.

I actually plan on running no spare on the back of the rig for now. I will just take out the backseat for the JKX and have my spare inside the vehicle

I have LOD sliders as well. But do not expect fast shipment from them or EVO. Great products, and great companies, but plan ahead for the expected 3+ week wait

Just placed my first order through northridge with all my main components minus my winch. Btw Sean has helped me out tremendously and has really taken care of me on this. Here is what that order

Evo enforcer 4" lift
Bilstein 5100 shocks front and rear
Vacuum pump relocation kit
Coast front driveshaft
Evo C gusset kit
Rock hard sport cage with rear support bars
Arb compact air compressor with under hood mount kit from evo and inflator
Evo four door sliders
And flip up license plate bracket for winch fairlead
Draglink flip kit


I'm excited to finally get moving on this. Tires and rims will be in a couple weeks, I'm doing Nitto 37" trail grapplers and ultra 198B 17x9 wheels (picture below)

I also installed my rock lights this past weekend just because you never know what the jk experience has in store.

sounds like a sturdy build! As otehrs said, LOD sliders take a while to ship. Got mine in a little over 3.5 weeks. Worth the wait in my opinion. Either EVO or LOD, cant go wrong. :beer:

Yeah, evo sliders are on backorder right now i ordered mine on June 6th and they said it would be around 4 weeks so I'm expecting them mid next week or possibly the week after that.

I got my gussets in about 2 weeks and i just ordered my front control arm skids today from northridge and im not sure when to expect them.

Before you pull the trigger on Northridge call Trail Jeeps in Boulder, CO and compare pricing. You might be surprised.

Being new to the forum and full of questions...I was curious has to how you picked those parts to install first? Although I wish I had unlimited financial resources, I like most people work on a budget. And from starting from scratch I was curious as to what you felt was the most important improvements? I would love to build a capable wheeler/ daily driver but am only able to fork out the $200-$500 a month for upgrades.
Im sure there are other posts here on such topics, I just stumbled across yours first. lol
It looks like you have a great build going on and envious of the garage full of parts. Cant wait to follow the progress. Cheers!

Honestly I'm doing a build based on the JKX requirements so my build is based on that then adding a couple of other things such as arb compressor, rock sliders and new front driveshaft. If it was me personally (depending on the wheeling you do) I would start with a lift and tires first then build off that. However, I went to Moab in may with my stock rubicon and was able to do alot just with that alone. If I were to do it again (Moab with a stock rig) I would add some armor underneath and maybe a winch but the stock rubicon is very capable.

Thanks for the reply. I know I opened a can of worms with that question and there are a million different opinions on where to start. I have been looking at lift/wheels upgrades and have been saving the pennies, but as soon as I have a few hundred dollars I'm quick to try and fit something that seperates it from all the other pavement queens and grocery getters around these parts. LoL
I figure most off my off roading will be the trails I have seen Wayoflife running in recent picture diaries. Mild to moderate in difficulty, stream crossings, and hopefully dentfree rock crawling with some great views, fishing, friends, and beers thrown in.
So an extreme crawlers isn't on the menu but a tough, well built Jeep that makes my Toyota friends jealous is. :beer:

Thanks! The only thing I'm a little worried about is I had them angle them out so I can use them as a step also. So as far as them sticking out and possibly getting hung up.

it probably is. mine is "being shipped" by the end of this week as well ( what EVO MFG said when i called them). had mine powder coated as well. im sure we will get it some point next week if thats the case. i dont mind waiting for quality products :yup:

Standing-by for your pictures and comments. :-)

For the hi-lift jack blocking the windshield wash spray nozzle you could try using a few washers either between the hood and mount or the hi-lift and mount. Might be able to give you the added height you need to get the spray clear. :idontknow: And if you ever need an extra set of hands, I can come give you a hand, you're not all that far from me. :beer:

Got a good amount done. Here is my jeep now lifted 4" and tires and wheels done.

41213

We got the side bars, dash bar and the upper bar installed for the sport cage. The draglink flip kit installed, my bumper stubbied and daystar dash panel installed. Everything went in fine, except for running to stores to pick up drill bits I thought we had and other misc things. The dash panel was a little pain, the clips don't want to seem to clip in so we improvised :). The sport cage was tougher than I thought to install, I would recommend anyone doing this to NOT use bedline spray and powdercoat it due to I think I lost space on the clamps with the texture. I have some touch ups to do on the cage from scratching some of it up.

41216

Drilling out the knuckle for the flip kit

41217

Sport cage, not the greatest welds but good product

41218

Lifted pre 37's

41219

Still have to get my winch installed, chop my fenders, finish up the sport cage, Retorque bolts after 500 miles and misc things.

Don't worry about the Rockhard sport cage, everyone's welds look just like yours. It's a decent product, but has always come with pretty rough looking beads. The jeep is is really coming together nicely :thumb: The Nitto's are always a welcome edition ;) they will not let you down either. Last year, not one failure on the JKX or the Ultimate Adventure!

Edit: just carry that torque wrench with you, cheap insurance!

Thanks Greg! I like the product so far it seems well built. I'm loving the nittos! I was really surprised how quiet they are also, I didn't notice much of a difference from my stock 32's. btw, is your schedule freeing up yet for the JKX?!

You know my schedule actually was about to allow me to get home in time to support you guys doing the event. The work that I'm doing for Uncle Sam.....well the contract was awarded to another company so basically I was going to get to do the JKX because I was jobless. Talk about bitter sweet:icon_crazy: but I just got word today, my contract was extended until further notice. Bad news, I miss the JKX......Good news, my family gets to have a home and eat real food under a roof.

Edit: trust me, I am still gaming this whole scenario to keep a paycheck, home, family that is fed and do the JKX. I am working some angles ;)

I wish I did but I was getting frustrated with the constant taking off, trim, put on, take off, trim, put and repeat probably 10 times lol. It was kind of a pain to do, it was really not too difficult just very time consuming and a very tight fit. I can try and help you if your looking at doing it, but honestly after doing it I should've just bought an aftermarket bumper lol. But thank you, I'm happy with the way it turned out.

Thanks! I really like the look of it but man it was a pain in the ass to do. I can even still install my license plate over using the factory holes and the winch is completely hidden. Except I still haven't mounted my control box which might be on top of the winch plate.

So where is the engage/disengage switch located for the winch? If your switch is on the control box you need to think about accessibility if you're in a situation where you will need someone to pull line for you without having to climb all over the jeep to get to it.

The clutch engage/disengage is if you would basically put your hand straight down at the bottom of the bumper right by the passenger fog light it's there. Easy to get to and easy to rotate the handle. The control box will be on top of the bumper most likely.

Could mount it inside the engine bay to complete the stealth look. Wouldn't be too hard and well worth it IMHO

I did definitely think of that. I'm running out of room in there that would be convenient to get at though lol. For time sake Ill do the easy mount for now and work on relocating later.

Looking at the warn series of winches. Looks like you installed a vr from your parts list. How much room was left between the frame rails? Looking at a zeon with the relocation kit for the solenoid but there is a 4" diff in the width.

Actually I got a quadratec q9000 but I got the one without the I integrated solenoid so I could mount the control box somewhere else. I don't think a zeon would fit however. The quadratec winch is 22" wide. Here is a pic of the winch mounted.

The "C's" are at the end of your axles that your ball joints go into to connect your knuckles to. The stock ones on a Dana 30/44 are not as strong as a ProRock. So EVO Mfg makes Gussets to weld on that portion to strengthen that area so they do not bend.

Yep when you look at that picture it's the two wider pieces that are on top and below of the axle. They weld onto the axle and up the C. It provides a lot more strength so the C doesn't bend from the heavier tires and wheeling.

The factory ball joints innerds CAN become damaged when welding gussets. But if the welder is patient and jumps around from top to bottom and side to side allowing the inner knuckle to cool off you don't need to remove or replace the balljoints. I didn't remove mine when I had it done.

If it gets hot enough to do that I would find a new welder. If they are pouring that much heat in then they probably don't know what they are doing and you don't want them welding shit on your rig in the first place.

This is the same person who will tack something then run a 6" bead and be surprised when the tack on the other side pops and breaks loose.

Why were hisntires free?

The event is sponsored by Nitto tires, every mfg gives away swag to participants. Nitto just so happens to gift each rig (if they want them) a free set of 37" Trail grapplers. That's how much faith Nitto has in their tires, they want to let unknown drivers take a set of their off the shelf tires and put them through hell over a weeks worth of wheeling in a very publicized event that gets great video coverage.

Back when Falken tire was the sponsor, I refused a set of the Wild Peaks, the tires were worthless on the trail. I didn't make the video much, and I damn sure didn't make the video on two seperate JKX's when I helped changed Wild Peak flat tires on four different occassions, two of which were on the Falken Tire JK.

You know how many Nitto flat/damaged tires were changed on two JKX's and two Ultimate Adventures.......zero.

Total speculation, but here goes. He probably bought 37's as he was getting ready and then, when Nitto pulled its awesomeness, he either attempted to sell the ones he bought or to sell the Nitto gift. I think his for sale post said the tires had 500 miles on them. I'm not sure when Nitto sent out its gift. Either way I see it as a lame move on his part. He should have sent the tires back, on his dime.

I agree with everyone else tho how shitty that is to sell something that was gifted to you. I hope we get a real answer soon tho.

I get the part if him selling the tires a month before. It does look F'd up.

I couldn't imagine the financial cost if this trip.

My costs for the 2012 JKX trip was just under $9000.00 Canadian.

Regarding the tires, I'd like to point out that Nitto only gave out 10 sets this year, far short of the amount of participants. I'd also like to point out that even we almost didn't get a set because of it. This guy should really man up and ship the tires he got for free back to Off Road Evolution.

So he was one of 10 participants that got the tires? This just makes it even more ridiculous... Bad form on his behalf:(

Yea I know but I have Four kids so it would be a once in a lifetime event.:rock:

Ya, if I was single I would have my Jeep built and ready for JKX a lot faster, and would put in every year, but I have 3 kids, so I could only spend that much on a non family trip once.

We try to do trips to Moab once a year, but the kids ride in the back on all the trails. Hoping to do the Rubicon soon.

Seems like a good way to discourage future sponsors doing what he did. Is there a contract or anything to JKX?

JAGS

In this case it brought more publicity to how awesome the sponsors are. It's the applicant that had the issue. I'm sure one wrong decision wouldn't hurt future participants.

Ok I agree he should ship the tires and While it sucks he backed out and could have potentially cost someone else a spot, I'm a firm believer that a mans first priority is always their family no matter what the reason and that's the way it should be. I'm not saying that's what his reason is and he could be just trying to get free stuff and be a real douche bag.
