Pulled the trigger

After much reading and lurking........
Ordered my lift stuff for my 05 Rubi
2.5" OME
Currie adjustable front trackbar
Cragar soft 8's in 15x8 with 4" backspace
JKS discos
JKS 1.25" BL
JKS 1" MML
Hockey Puck Bumpstops
33x12.5x15 Cooper SST
Have warn 8K winch
Just finished my front bumper
I really feel like I forgot something in this list (maybe because its a pile of cash for a few boxes from UPS lol)

Near future plans: tummy tuck and body armor/tube fenders.

Any suggestions or input thus far?

Nice! How illegal is it to traverse powerline trails? I've gone on a couple of trails, but man was I looking over my shoulder the whole time.

Talk about volunteering for OT!

From the winter we are supposed to have here in Washington, hopefully you will have time to install all that. Maybe atleast pay for it with lots of overtime! LOL

Here in WA most powerline roads are private and have an easement for BPA to maintain the lines. So you're still probably trespassing. However maybe if you're lucky its not a homeland security charge you pick up cruising transmission line roads.

you are doing all at once what I am taking a couple years to get to. I really like the OME--MML BL next spring 33's and wheels next summer with tummy tuck.

If doing the work yourself I would go ahead and do tummy tuck--only remove skid plate once. If having it done different story--they aren't going to cut you any slack for that and not THAT hard to do--just a thought....

It's been seriously too long since I've been on here to update my build.

Since my last post I have got
SST 33's on with crager soft 8's on that I ordered with the bulk of it

Later I picked up-
Corners
Rockers
5th Tire on Wheel (matching)
Warn Rear Bumper (added some weld on D-rings on it)
All new speakers throughout
Put safetys on the Locker Modded switches
Optima Battery


I "think" that's it, I can't remember. I'm working on posting pics right now, kinda a hassle from my phone.

Been on a few wheeling trips and have managed to almost avoid damage.......almost. Time for tube fenders ;-)

Update,
Everything is working well so far, I now have a taco'd rear lower control arm (Time for Rokem arms) Undercover fab tummy tuck done. it's the ultra High Clearance. Nice product.
Snow wheeling has been exceptional this winter.
A/C pump siezed up, freezing my lines, had to pull the fuse. Guess I'll need a new compressor before summer.
I am VERY happy with my setup, the Jeep has really impressed the other guys with I wheel with. It's been fun.

Next up is:
On board air, Rokmen arms, 5:13s, Chrome Molly Axles, and Metal Cloaks, in that order.

Trips Planned, Packwood snow run for Memorial day
July, Rubicon Trail and Fordyce, then Reno for a night or two.
