    The Slow Build of Sprocket

    I decided it's about time to finally start a build thread. I already have a few mods done and I have many more planned but like many on here, this will be a slow build. My '12 JKUR came with the following options.

    Auto trans
    Uconnect 730N Navigation w/ connectivity group
    A/C with Auto Temp Control
    Dual top group
    Remote Start
    heated leather seats

    This is what my rig looked like the day I got it.

    It didn't take long before I got it dirty.

    Shortly after the first trip out I ordered a 2.5" Teroflex budget boost (I know,Iknow) and a pair of 1.5" Spidertrax wheel spacers. I don't have any pics of the lift install but I do have an after pic.

    After the lift I did a few small mods here and there:

    I followed Eddie's writeup and installed a maglite

    and finally an Evo protek oil pan skid.

    After a month or two I bit the bullet and picked up a set of trucklites and what a difference they made!

    I also installed a windshield banner.

    After saving up for a while I picked up the 3" Evo Enforcer lift and drag link flip. I also upgraded to a set of 35" trail grapplers at the same time.

    Out with the old.

    And in with the new!

    Last winter I picked up an Evo pro series front bumper and Warn M8000S winch.

    All painted and ready to be installed.

    I recently picked up an Evo pro series rear bumper but have yet to get it installed.

    and I added a few new stickers.

    Currently this is how Sprocket sits. I will update this thread as I get more done.

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.
