John's Jeep Version 3.0

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.

Got the stubby front bumper and winch installed. The winch seems too heavy for the stock front springs, there is serious nose diving when hitting the brakes. I will probably bite the bullet and get the Mopar lift installed. Until then, the winch is sitting back on the bench.

Just ordered some 37" tires, the off-road sway bar is sitting in the garage waiting for me to install it, and the soft top should be here on Monday... slowly getting there. About the only things left on my "must have" list is the new lift and a tailgate reinforcement kit.
