North Carolina black on black on black Rubi Build

I bought my first jeep 2 years ago and have been hooked ever since. It was a stock 04 Sport, that I built with my own 2 hands. Lift, tires, and other stuff. In November I decided to let my TJ go and get a 4 Door Rubi. I must say what a difference. I have power!!!!
This will be the build of my new 2013 rubicon.

Here is with the 35" and the MB72s I have a Rock Krawler 2.5" flex lift with Blistiens 5100 (Thanks to Jason at Krawloffroad) going on tomorrow. I do not recommend 35" tire with stock suspension. It was ok for a week but I couldn't have anyone sit in the backseat without it rubbing.

Last year I moved to North Carolina from South Carolina, so I no longer have a garage. Clemson 4x4 will be doing the install of the lift for me. My knuckles thanked me for this.

Those lug nuts are not black enough.

Looks cool though - can't wait to see it lifted.

Lift installed, Rock Krawler 2.5" flex with Blistien 5100. Clemson 4x4 in South Carolina did the install and did a great job.

My review of the flex lift is great. I like the ride, the lift height, and the pairing with the Blistiens. It's on road mannerisms are great equal to stock maybe a little better.

When you first posted this I thought it was with the 2.5'' lift.

Yea with the stock suspension those 35s are horrible. I wouldn't be able to get out of garage without severe rubbing. Hitting the trails would be out of the question on that setup.

I bet it looks great with the lift though

My pixeldecal.com stickers in reflective black. They look sooooo much better then the stock. I am normally not one for stickers but feel the Rubicon stickers are a signature of the jeep.

Those are some black Jeeps!

I think I saw one on there that was so black that light couldn't escape it's surface!
On the other hand, who doesn't like being within the Schwarzschild radius of a Jeep Wrangler??

I, for one am really liking the Jeep!

I did the evil eyes mod this week. I sanded and color matched. I know some people don't like them, but I do!

Y'all are gettin' me all sorts of excited! I've had my 2-door Sport for about 5 months now and I'm finally about to start my mods and I'm working hard on doing full black. Nothing not black is going on my baby I'm so glad to know that it'll all look so good.
