Hi Everyone. I lurk on this website a lot. Thought I would share some pictures of my mild Rubicon Build
Got my 2005 Rubicon in November of 2009
It was completely stock and in very good condition throughout
I drove it stock all that winter but by spring the mod bug had stung me again (I had a lifted YJ when I was 16)
Heres the Jeep summer of 2010.
4x Roo-Lite 75W Lights
9004 Conversion headlights
Blacked out headlight bezels w/ Guards
Spare tire in the back of the tub
10K front tow hooks
LED 4" STT / License Plate / Marker Lights
Thrush cat-back exhaust
This picture of my Jeep was for the Winnipeg Free Press, who ran an article about our club RRJC (Red River Jeep Club)
Oh, please excuse the tires. The mediocre Cooper ATR's came on the Rubicon from the lot I bought it off. They were brand new so I didnt complain. (Salesman was telling me all about how the tires are Rubicon Specific....really?)
Some wheeling shots from last summer:
Yes, I got stuck. ha. Lockers will only dig you deeper sometimes.
POOR SPOTTING! (The Girlfreind almost had to change her pants when this happened. It was her first time out wheeling...)
Candid shot she took while going out for a run on a Sunday morning
We had a Hallowheeling Run close to Halloween. Bonus if you came in costume:
Then winter 2010 came and I bought a Beater. (dont flame me. with the amount of salt that gets thrown on the roads here, it will melt your frame in no time.) Its also -40 CELCIUS here for a few months and thats not nice to an engine or anything for that matter.
BUT I had plans for the spring.
Painted the rims
AND got new tires installed:
285/75 R16 GY Duratracs. Amazing tire, btw.
And I bought a set of Xenon flat fender flares, to clear the tires.
And heres everything put on. Could not be happier. Havent taken it out to play yet, I might have to put a small spacer to eliminate the rub when it flexes, and adjust my steering stops, but other than that I think it looks pretty meanacing.
Thanks! (I'm sure there will be more mods very soon...it never ends)
