    The Kool-Aid is Strong Over Here

    So I've had my Jeep since about August and didn't really think about making a build thread just because I figured it would be a real slow build, but as luck would have it, it might be a lot faster than I thought lol.


    A little background on my Jeep. Its a 2012 Wrangler Sport with a 6 speed manual and was completely stock when I bought it. I bought it from an older couple with 10k miles on it and not a single scratch on her! The guy bought it for his wife (who couldn't drive a stick) but she loved the color so they bought that one over the white automatic sitting right next to it at the dealership. Long story short, she hated driving a stick and its all mine now! This Jeep was a virgin when I bought her! The doors had never been taken off, the top had came off just 3 times and she had never been off-road! The original owner put it in 4 low once just to see how slow it would crawl and thats it! When I looked the Jeep over before the test drive there wasn't one single scratch on any of the skid plates. I feel like I stole it from them lol. But here she is when I first got her!

    My list of mods for the future.

    1. Motobilt front bumper.
    2. EVO rear D-rings with rear bumper fascia. (Installed)
    3. EVO rock sliders and skins. (Installed)
    4. Black plastidip front grille. (Installed)
    5. Cobra CB radio. (Installed)
    6. EVO 3" plush ride coils. (Installed)
    7. Bilstein shocks on all 4 corners. (Installed)
    8. EVO 3" bump stops front and rear. (Installed)
    9. EVO drag link flip kit. (Installed)
    10. Currie brake line kit. (Installed)
    11. Artec rear track bar bracket. (Waiting for install)
    12. WARN winch.
    13. 37x12.50x17 Mastercraft Courser MXTs. (Installed)
    14. Spyderlock beadlocks.
    15. Dana 60 front out of a 2010 Ford F-250, Artec truss, ARB locker, Yukon 5.38gears, and stock 35 spline shafts. (Waiting for install)
    16. Sterling 10.5 rear out of a 2010 Ford F-250, Artec truss, Yukon Zip locker, Yukon 5.38 gears, and stock 35 spline shafts. (Waiting for install)
    17. 1350 drive shafts front and rear.
    18. Take out carpet and Line-X the tub. (Waiting for install)
    19. Replace the crappy speakers from the factory.
    20. Upgraded roll cage, either custom or RockHard Sport cage.
    21. EVO oil pan skid. (Installed)
    22. Take out stock resonator with Magnaflow Race Bullet muffler. (Waiting for install)
    23. Airaid intake.
    24. Engine programmer of some kind, probably SuperChips.

    The first thing I did when I got her home was take her off-road! She's no virgin now!

    The next weekend I packed her up
    and went on a beach trip with my parents. It did surprisingly well in the sand with those little crappy street tires but I knew I had to fix it.

    So when I got home from the beach I called up to Rubitrux in Boone (the guys that do all the Jeep truck conversions) and got a set of 5 2015 Rubicon wheels and tires and bolted them on and went out wheeling that day to really test my Jeep out.

    I plan on keeping the stock axles, unless I can find a rubicon front axle, and just putting Artec truss and all that on them for strength, chromoly shafts and lockers front and rear (ARB). For lift I'm going with a RockKrawler 2.5 inch Max Travel Kit with Bilstein shocks. I'm going to keep the Rubicon wheels for awhile because I really like the look of them, but my dream wheels are Method Beadlocks. But my tires are going to be either 37 inch Goodyear MTRs or 35 Nitto Trail Grapplers when I instal the lift. And EVO front bumper, D rings and face plate for the rear, and their rock sliders and maybe rock skins. But that's my plan.....for now lol
