    2012 Build up

    Hey guys, new to the Forum but very familliar with 96-06 Jeeps. I placed my order a couple weeks ago for a 2012 JK Rubicon Unlimited, should be in by Dec. I'm planning a Build up Tell me what you guys think...
    6 inch Full Traction long arm
    Smittybuilt front, rear and side armor
    37 inch BFG KM 2's on 17 inch Black Walker Evans beadlocks
    Rancho RS 9000 pro series shocks
    AFE cold air intake
    Tom woods driveshafts or simular
    Now Ive talked to Chris from Full Traction, Those guys are super cool, But I don't know what off set I'll need for the Walker Evans Beadlocks or if Rancho makes a size that will work with the lift...

    Congrats on the 2012. Just traded in my 2 door for the 4. Waiting on it to arrive at the dealer. I will be following your build with lots of interest.

    the only thing i might add is that you get you upgrade your driveshaft with a set of spicer or neapco u-joints. the cheap chinese u-joints woods uses is crap - trust me on this one.

    regarding your walkers, they only come in one back spacing and if i recall, it's 4.75" or there abouts. you should be okay with running them with the tires you plan on getting but, if you do have rubbing issues, a set of spidertrax wheel spacers will take care of you. as far as shocks go, rancho has just about every length you can imagine getting and i'm sure you'll be able to find what you're looking for.

    Thanks Eddie for the input. The Jeep comes in two more days and I'm about to pee my pants. A couple of changes to the build so far " due to money" or at least for the time being. Called my local drive shaft guy at Adam's drive shaft and I can get front and back for what I can get the rear Woods drive shaft for. My 37's are on back order as for my rims... Had to go with a procomp rim for the time being at 200.00 a rim they are 230 a rim cheaper than the Walker Evans that I'll get down the line. Got to call Full Traction to get my lift on the way.. I'll do a complete write up as I go for the stuff that doesn't already have a write up. I intend on doing every thing myself so hopefully I can inspire so more do it your self'ers... Any input on a good light front axle truss, and I'll probably do a synergy c gusset as well.

    PureJeep makes a good axle truss and c gussets. I think you can get them in a package deal. As far as the drive shafts go, if you have a good local guy I would go with them.

    Thanks Robar for the link... I'm definitely going by way of local driveline way cheaper and the guys at Adam's are Jeep freaks as well from what I heard.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
