I made a surprise visit to the the club's meeting in August after a hiatus for a few months with my new jeep. I figured I would post an update since I've had two jeeps since my last reader rig update.

Backstory: Sold my JKU three years ago due to life changes and additions to the family. A year went buy and I picked up a fairly low mileage LJ that was almost stock to build. After two years of ownership and only swapping the rear bumper, I felt as if I was never going to build it and the discussion started with my Chief Financial Officer (wife) on if I should off load the LJ and buy a built rig already. We both agreed and the hunt was on...

2016 Jeep Wrangler Sport S:

  • Dynatrac Pro Rock 44
  • Reid Racing Knuckles
  • Dynatrac Pro Steer Ball Joints
  • 4.88 gears
  • Ten Factory Chromoly Shafts
  • E Lockers
  • Currie Anti Rock Sway Bar 
  • Metalcloak 4.5" long arm lift kit with 6 pak shocks
  • Metalcloak engine, transfer case and fuel tank skid system
  • Adams driveshafts
  • Crawler Concepts Front Bumper
  • Warn VR 10K Winch
  • Metalcloak Overland Fenders
  • Metalcloak Overland Rock Sliders
  • EVO Rear Bumper Facia
  • Metalcloak tire carrier
  • Spod
  • Dual ARB Air Compressor
  • Raceline Monster Beadlocks
  • 37x13.5x17 Toyo MTs

I don't have any great pictures yet, but hopefully will have some soon.

I had the privilege of seeing you & your new rig at the last meeting. Welcome back, knowing full well your family obligations come first. Look forward to seeing you more, especially on the runs.

I was able to get out and play with the new jeep near Fordyce and Signal Peak this weekend. It did great. I can't wait for the next trail run.

You know Greg! Remember that one time...

That you needed help unloading UD 60s into your garage?

That you installed UD 60s on your jeep and only Greg was there to hand you tools.

That you broke your steering on Fordyce and Greg manually turned your tires so you could make progress off the trail?

That you sat at work and wondered who was looking at your jeep outside your office window????

Um...what?
