Version 1.0, the White TJ, got wheeled to death... R.I.P.

So along came Version 2.0, the Red JKU, which didn't get used much at all.

Sad really, I dumped a bunch of money into it, but we never really clicked with eachother.

Decided that a 2 Door was just more my style and along came Version 3.0, the Grey JL 2 Door Rubicon.

I was just going to put on a small lift and 35 inch tires, but we all know how that goes. Here's a pic on the new lift, wheels, and tires.

But after a few weeks, it starts to look kinda plain and boring.

So it's currently getting some flat tube fenders and fender liners.

Next up will probably be a front stubby bumper and a winch... Where will it all end?

Only if you put a trail rated badge on it Dale! I actually think that would be a pretty funny, you never know if one might show up on your rig after the Hell Hole run in spring 2022 grin

The fenders are Rugged Ridge... nice quality and easy to install.

The liners are oEdRo... never heard of them but I like them... a pain to install though.
