Default A proper build up thread......JK

So a got a JK a few weeks ago. One week and 50 miles after I picked it up I started the modification process.

Stock Photo. I still say that a stock JK looks ridiculous without a lift and some bigger tires. I'm not a fan of the bumpers either, so those are on there way out.

Added New wheels - Procomp 7189s 17x9
Added new tires - BFG KM2s 35x12.5x17

Then, we did a temporary afternoon hack job on the front bumper. It was to lame to drive it around with that stupid mini-van stock bumper. I have new Shrockworks bumpers on order, but they take six weeks.

This will suffice until it arrives. The front bumper is the underlying metal from the stock bumper, trimmed to the size of a stubby bumper. I welded end tabs on the sides and a flat sheet of metal to the front to cover the holes. Then painted it black.

Most recent thing I did was to replace the whimpy Dana 44 diff covers with Riddler 1/4" thick covers. I switched to Royal Purple gear oil in the process.

I can't comment on that until I get it offroad. It's looking like my first opportunity will be in Moab next month. I'm gonna give it a good workout there.

There is no question this thing is not an H2 in terms of road comfort. The visibility is excellent, the road ride is not too bad. The engine is a bit underpowered for the 4-door version (which I'm going to somewhat alleviate with new gearing). I love the MyGig nav/sat/DVD setup with the 20gb harddrive and USB. But none of that really matters. I can't wait to get out and wheel this thing.

You need D-rings.

This bumper is only a six week temporary one. 4 weeks ago I ordered a front and rear bumper from Shrockworks. Should be here in about two more weeks. And yes, it has D rings. I'm going to put my warn 9.5ti on when I install it.

I also have a steering stablizer to install and an EVAP cannister relocation kit to install, plus a bunch of electronics.

It is nice, but your hummer was nicer.
