JKU Compare

Most of you know that I don't NORMALLY do this, but

I was at Wal-Mart this morning and when I came out-this sweet silver JKU had parked right next to me and I couldn't resist taking a pic-his was completely stock !!





A little diff.-

Haha looks like a little brother who says "I really want to be like Jimbox".
Love to see side by side pictures of stock vs mod.
Your Jeep is just right without over doing it.

Agreed, and a question, are those the stock fog lamps in that bumper Jimbox? If so, since I didn't see it in your Jeep profile, can you share which bumper that is?

I have an old pair of I think ARB lights I won at a Jeep Jamboree years ago. I have been looking for a way to put them on the new Jeep, and it looks like that bumper would let me keep the factory fogs, and use the ARB lights.

Yea, those are the stockers and the bumpers are Olympic "rock" series #530-(I think), they're about $260/ea

He's a good friend of mine, he borrowed my jeep once to place all the girls in for a shot in the mag, I won't tell him about today so you can get your job back

They're LT295/75x16 Load range "D" and they are 33.6" unmounted-mounted 30psi, they are 33.2" and they are a little big for stock wheels and they "RUB" everywhere, without fender cut and/or lift and/or adapters-spacers-



They're outstanding balance/traction/wear/noise/flex-

Where did you mount all your accessory switches? I was thinking about one of those a pillar switch panels. It is a 2011, I honestly haven't even taken possession of it yet, still in transit!! Just looking for ideas and options.
I like your front end set up.

I started with a 6-sw panel and relays/fuses/wires all over and always had trouble getting to my sw's in the overhead, so I got the sPOD sys -awesome, but


Expensive

I had the same thing happen to me the other day, stock Jeep parked next to mine when I walked out of the mall and saw it I thought to myself, my lift kit and tires were really worth the money! Stock Jeep still looks good tho, I should've taken a pic I didnt even think about it. Next time I'll remember lol

It's about the size of a cellphone and is made to clip right on a belt loop-I always take it out shopping/fishing/camping/wheelin/robbing banks-etc

Takes pretty good pics for a knock around cheap-(record keeping) camera, cost about $65 bucks 5 years ago
