'13 cloaked billet JKUR build thread.

I finally get to make my own build thread after owning my Jeep for a little over a year. I worked very hard running my own side business and all of these mods are funded by it. I am extremely excited and cannot wait to finish what I would call my stage 1. My Jeep currently has 12k miles and I haven't had any issues other than the water pump.

Current Mods: - not much really ...
spiderwebshade
quadratec floor mats
metalcloak rear seat support

Stage 1 Mods (purchased and on its way):
5 rugged ridge satin black rims purchased from 4wd.com
5 35" nitto trail grapplers purchased from 4wd.com
(4wd.com gave me the best price on all 5 mounted, balanced, with TPMS & black lugs)
3.5" metalcloak game changer ARB edition
OME steering stabilizer
metalcloak vacuum pump relocation kit
metalcloak frame built front bumper #1401 with centered fixed fairlead
metalcloak rear bumper/tire carrier 62" crawler

Loose ends to complete Stage 1:
select an exhaust (leaning toward dynomax competition exhaust)
either AFE Y pipe or replace the front axle, i do not want spacers
these decisions i have some time to sort out as the wheels alone will take 3 weeks.

I will be posting a full writeup of the install with plenty of pictures all around. Over the next month I will most likely add little things like antenna, door sill protectors, lockbox, grill inserts and more but I consider that mostly cosmetic. If you would like to buy my stock '13 Rubicon wheels, PM me.

I like my RR mirrors, but if you add this convex mirror to your passenger side, you'll be much happier.

thanks for the suggestion. i just ordered my solution for the lift and drive shaft droop.

i decided to hold off on the new drive shaft until october so i will be ready for my jeep jamboree trip in november. in the meantime i will take my chances and use the rancho exhaust pipe: Rancho RS720003 - Rancho Exhaust Pipe Kit for 12-14 JeepĀ® Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK with 2-5" Lift - Quadratec

the only negative thing i have seen about it is it puts the exhaust lower than what you would want in a rig but i am ok with that and will to take the risk until october. its $5 - $10 more than exhaust spacers and a much better solution IMO.

Stage 1 Complete - actual build time lapse and opinions/reviews of the install coming soon
My initial driving impressions: I am 5'10" and stepping into the cab is some real work. It is a lot higher than I anticipated. You get on the internet and forums and you see all these pictures but they do not do any rig justice. Until you are standing there you just don't know. So for me, none of my pictures do the rig justice. It is way more epic in person. I have had so many people talk to me about my Jeep after the work. So, its tall. I climb in and start the ignition. The AFE exhaust rumbles to life and I immediately like what I hear. I back out and begin my first drive. I love the exhaust. First thing I do is gun it out of the parking area and I am relieved to not feel any real loss of power and the exhaust just sounds awesome. I take a few curves that I do on a daily basis and notice there is no more body roll and the Jeep stays firmly planted around the turn. Did I mention the exhaust sounds great. I take the Jeep out onto the highway where I finally noticed the loss of power. Running 4.10 with a manual I have bit more room and control but I did notice a lack of power around 65-70 mph. My uneducated impression makes me feel like I want to be at higher RPMs (basically what a regear is). So basically thats it. Everything is way better than stock, period.

Exhaust
already said i love it. so glad i did not go with anything louder as i think it is borderline too loud for passengers (wife) but perfect for me. its tucked up high and was an easy well built kit to install.

the rancho adapter i have mixed feelings on. its better than exhaust spacers but as you will see in the pictures below it does hang a bit too low for comfort. it is fine for now, but when i replace the drive shaft before my jeep jamboree trip in november i will have a shop remove it and install a permanent solution.

Tires & Wheels
the rugged ridge rims and nittos are a great combo. i have gotten a ton of compliments and they are so much larger in person. this is a common theme with everything. one thing i was very surprised at was how quiet the tires are. i only noticed them at the 70mph + speed.

Front Bumper
front bumper is perfect. i haven't installed the winch guard bar yet because i was getting impatient and i don't think MC sent me the hardware to do so. in the pictures you will notice it is just begging for a winch. i need some D rings.

to make room for the bumper, we relocated the vacuum pump with the MC's relocation kit (pictured). we also swung the sway bar disconnect motor up and out of the way (kit from MC) for a better approach angle and its safe now. rattled canned it black so it doesn't stick out.

Rear Bumper
rear bumper was a long task to get just right. in the pictures the tire is not resting on the bottom plate and this has been fixed. it locks tight and up close to the jeep and then swings out and locks out of the way. the mechanism to keep it locked closed is very impressive. super secure and very easy pull up to release. i am so glad i went with the crawler end caps from MC. i think it looks amazing and can't wait to replace the fenders. the low center of gravity and mounting angle is a great feature and even with 35s i can see out the back very well. i may pickup the license plate relocation kit.

Lift
what can i say, its metalcloak and the ride is amazing. 3.5" is perfect and i would strongly advise against the 2.5" for anyone with a 4 door. it looks great and very proportional. i think 2.5" wouldn't be enough. the quality of the control arms is astounding and the quality of the ride speaks for itself.

Shocks
As most know the other kit from MC comes with their 6pak shocks. I wanted them but since I could not currently utilize them and that they are expensive I went with the kit that comes with OME shocks. I have zero complaints. The ride is great and I thought I was going to hate the yellow shocks under the Jeep but I honestly love it. Great color to offset everything else and it just screams "I have been modded".

I cannot speak for the steering stabilizer from OME as I did not drive it before the install. It was something I was told I should have so I got it.

Enough talk, pictures in the next post!

thats a lot of bumpstop on the rear. Also, i think the stack is supposed to slant forward not staggered back and forth.
Otherwise it looks great!

I know the front with stock fenders is supposed to be three. I will double check the rear and also the placement. Thanks!

so the bump stops are supposed to be staggered but staggered forward, not how they are now. i can't find anything on their site about the amount. will give them a call today.

Everything looks great. I feel the same way about the exhaust. Anything louder than this would be unacceptable especially for the wife .

yeah, i have several sound clips coming from both camera and iphone to give people an idea.

the first thing she said was "it sounds different". she hasn't complained that its too loud and i think it helps keep our 5 week old asleep

Looks good
You will want to drop the spare down so that it rests on the step of the tire carrier. It can help if you let air out and then refill after you re tighten all of the bolts

Also depends on the winch, but my Zeon 10S was right up against the swaybar motor casting and I had to grind off some to get the rear bolt on the passenger side to fit

yeah, i noted that i dropped the spare down onto the carrier ...

i am going with the zeon 10s (maybe 8s but i was told to go big) and since the sway bar motor has been swung up it should not be in the way at all.

Cool. Didn't realize the stock fenders required so much. I'm running 2" front 3" rear with 37s, but that's with flat fenders. Need to do some more trimming and I think I can get it dowb to 1" front and 1" or 2" rear. The metalcloak rear bumstops are nice, so easy to adjust

Dalearyous you and I have almost the same Jeep. Same lift, same front bumper but I have the mid stinger #1402, I have their 72" rear bumper because I already had the Teraflex setup. What psi are you running? You should look into the Overland flares and color match it to the Jeep. Trust me, you'll be very pleased with how it will look. I have Fox dual stabilizers out front. I'm on 37's though. Still corners like its on rails which is unbelievable for something this tall. I have the step slider from Rock Slide Engineering to ease ingress/egress. I'm 6'2" but my wife is 5'2". I can just get in without needing the step but she desperately needs it LOL. Rig looks sick. Keep it coming. You know how I feel about the loss in power and what my remedy is. That four letter word.

yeah dominus, i have replied to your posts on other threads. the power loss is very minimal IMO, i guess i was expecting a lot more. i also have a manual so i am not at the mercy of the auto doing my shifting. that is my plan for the flares and i will probably just finish it off with MC sliders and armor. but, before that, i might take the dive and go for the RIPP supercharger to get back som MPGs and highway drive ability.

to be honest, i have no idea what PSI i am running. the TPMS aren't working yet and i haven't checked it. i think the shop said either 32 or 35. i almost went with the mid stinger but my garage is short and parking can already be a pain in other places around town. plus i just liked the look of #1401.

I need a front plate in NY as well so I just put it between the bumper and fairlead high enough so that it is visible and tightened it.

One of these days I'll weigh my spare but I know the 37" Nitto weighs 88lbs by itself according to their website and the wheels are 20" X 10. I have to be around 120lbs per tire times 5. The flares are no light weights either. They have to be between 40lbs-60lbs each. It all adds up. Yeah the auto doesn't help either. I still love it though.
