New member with a new toy.........

I posted the same pics in the "black" thread but am a proud Papa and want to give the new toy its own thread.

Thanks to all the info. on this site my build process was very simple to plan and assemble and I am more than happy with the results.

So far.....
'12 sport
3.5 AEV lift
17" RR wheels w/315 GY Dura's
Rubi/Ace rails
Fuel door
Tail light guards
Stubby front w/Mopar light bar
Qtech liners
Mopar entry guards
Grill mod
Plasti-dip locks and Jeep badge


I am still waiting to receive/install a LOD rear bumper/tire carrier, Mastercraft grabs, Tuffy enclosure, the updated sPOD, and Rigid Ind. LED's.

Welcome to the forum, that is a sick looking Jeep. I am a fan of the all black look, too bad mine is flame red but I shall have black wheels soon (yay!)

Looking good! How does that AEV kit ride? Did you get the Bilstein w/resevoirs I just ordered the same one. Did you need to mess with the front driveshaft? How much loss of power from those new tires? And last question, what exhaust mod did you go with, if any? I am debating the y-pipe from AFE over the exhaust extensions that everyone is saying don't work well. Thanks

Great looking JK!!! I was doing a search on jk's with a mopar light bar and this came up! Looks nice, I'm debating the Mopar vs the MBRP, vs making my own.


not to hijack your thread, but to answer lo lo... I have a 12 with a 4.5 AEV DUal Sport SC and 37" BFG KM2's, it rides pretty good, but handles incredibly. You don't need to mess with the front driveshaft if you have a manual... other than that, get onto AEV's website and read the Frequently Asked Questions and you will find the solid answer to your questions. I went with the AFE y-pipe over the spacers... IMO it's the way to go, it may be a lot spendier, but it looks factory, vs having a couple of spacers thrown in. With 4:10's and a 6spd manual I don't feel any power loss in my 12... but that's because I just traded in my 09 with the same basic set up (4.5 and 37's) and once you are used to driving a 3.8 on 37's a 3.6 feels SUPERCHARGED!!!

Again, beautiful JK, more pics please!!!!!

and how do you like that mopar light bar?

Looks great but then again, I am partial to the black on black JKs.

Welcome to the forum.

Welcome! Very nice looking Jeep!

Did you have to remove the vacuum pump for that light bar install?
I picked up a relo kit for the pump, but I'm not looking forward to cutting that bracket away.

Nice looking Jeep ADM, I'm not always a fan of black wheels on a black jeep but those look good.
