    "Boulder" build thread... late start but ready to go

    I'm finally ready with my list! And budget, and spousal approval at least for the early part. My kids named my 2015 Anvil JKUR "Boulder"

    Done so far: Not much... Midland CB and Back-up camera thanks to this site's great details.

    To do now / Phase 1:
    • OD Slider
    • KMC Machette Black XD229
    • 35" Nitto Trail Grapplers
    • EVO 4" Enforcer (or 3")
    • EVO Drag link flip
    • King / EVO Shocks, F&R
    • Rancho RS9000XL x4 if not the above kings
    • EVO C-gussets
    • EVO LCA skids
    • EVO Rockstar skids
    • EVO Control arm skid
    • ?? Rubi sway bar disco skid?
    • EVO Front shock relo
    • Adams 1350 Spicer drive shaft
    • Exhaust spacer (for 3.6L 2015)

    What am I missing / screwing up??

    Maybe now, maybe wait until the above are done
    • LOD Shorty Desroyer, Stinger
    • LOD Shorty Desroyer, Rear
    • LOD Destroyer front skid plate
    • EVO, skid plates - transfer case, diffs, tbd


    Later / Special purchase etc:
    • Warn Zeon 10-S
    • EVO Hinged Carrier, Blk (if don't do the LOD all-in one)


    LONG Term...
    • 37's
    • Long arm upgrade kit / coil-overs
    • PR44 axle upgrades


    Comments / suggestions WELCOME!!! Thanks!

    Great looking build list so far. Did you win the lottery?

    Overall a good list. Priority depends a bit on how you wheel. If you go remote places by yourself, you may want to bump up the skids and winch.

    Also, I like the name Boulder 👍

    List looks good, with a few exceptions: you won't need the exhaust spacer if you go with the driveshaft and the Evo LCA skid is a control arm skid. So it looks like you won't need 2 items that you have on your list.

    Agree... skids before Rubicon next summer. Winch... post wife's new car perhaps

    As for lottery... no, but been saving since we almost purchased a pre-lifted car at the dealer over a year ago. Glad I didn't go that route, as it was nothing on my current list!

    Now when you say sell your body, are you talking about body parts, or being a hooker? Because I've considered both lol

    As stated before, I would do the winch prior to everything else. Don't be that guy with a built rig that's needs others to pull cable for them...

    That's a very well-rounded list. A few redundancies, but those have already been mentioned. Your build list is almost identical to mine. You won't need lotto winnings, but don't be surprised if the above list costs about $8k. Looking forward to seeing how your build progresses. Nice name for the perfect color of jeep too!

    Valid. Never thought of it that way!

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.
