Polepositions 2012 JKUS build

It's complete when I finally install the Smitty full width end caps for the front bumper. I just received them after a 5 month wait to find that the integrated fog lights are these cheap chinese crap lights that you get out of a cracker jack box. Have a set of Amber Rigid Dually D2's on way. Need to figure out how to mount in fog light hole of new bumper. So disappointed with the crap Smitty sent. Bumpers are great. Lights were for crap. Anyway:

Wheels are 18x9 KMC XD Misfits on (35's) 325/65R-18 Goodyear Wrangler DuraTracs

Suspension is Teraflex 2.5 coil lift with shocks

Bumper's are Smittybilt XRC MOD front and rear

K&N filter, Gibson Dual Exhaust Ceramic coated black, tips powder coated black.

All badges removed - SAHARA logo and JEEP logo are black reflective

Lights are Rigid Dually D2's on A pillar in driving beam. 10 inch Rigid E-series spot/flood combo on bull bar. 6 inch Rigid E-series with diffused lens under tow hitch receiver. Headlights are new Trucklite LED's. Signal markers are Recon LED with smoked lens. Tail lights are IPCW LED's. All lights go thru S-POD.

Camera in rear and cam in front plug into the lockpick system. No problems. Seamless integration into factory system. Did the Kicker upgrade to the speakers as well.

Tint is 20% all around. Current top is bestop bikini. Will put soft top on soon.

A 4 door is a JK period, but many on the internet have added the "U" to denote the unlimited. Still others have managed to add a "R" to denote a Rubicon. The "S" however makes no sense. The painted fenders tell me it's a Sahara, but without the pictures it could be a Sport as well. "JKUS" just doesn't make sense. Sorry, carry on.

Oh my. Im so sorry for the inconvenience daggo. I will remove the S immediately as to not confuse any others and force some into a daze and unrecoverable bewilderment. Too late to edit so if you actually read the post, you'll learn it is a Sahara.

You wouldn't want me to get confused on how to pull you out at RC.

It's the Gibson Dual exhaust setup. One muffler, two pipes exiting the muffler on either side. Not too loud. Sounds good. Looks great.

Nice looking rig, any concerns about pinching an exhaust tip closed on a rock or something while offroading?

Rear cam is mounted on top of license plate light housing. Easy run for the wire thru the rear tail light. Front cam is mounted to the right of front license plate

No concern as the tips are easily replaceable.
