A litte background about myself and the Jeep thus far. I ordered my Jeep while I was stationed in Japan and picked it up January 2013 while I was home. 2013 JK, 6 Speed, 3.73 gears, 6 speaker alpine, limited slip RD, Block Heater (Alaska). And an AFE exhaust system that I added.
Getting ready for the long PCS to Alaska. I broke it in during my leave at home in Virginia and then planned the route nearly 5,000 miles to Alaska. 2 weeks, 2 cracked windshields, and the road trip of a lifetime later, I was finally in Alaska.

I kept putting off mods because of the lack of funds. I wanted to be able to do everything I want, without going into debt. Luckily, I'm currently deployed and have been able to save over the last 6 months. My time here is finally drawing to an end, so the ordering process has started. So far this is what I have in store.
Rock Krawler 2.5" with FL Adjustable control arms
17" Matte Black ION Alloy 179's w/ 1.5" wheel spacers
315/70/17 Goodyear Duratracs (Snowy Alaska)
Poison Spyder Tramp Stamp
Rear Bumper Removal (I personally like the look)
I'm still trying to decide on a stubby front bumper as well.
This build should start around April 15th. I'm really excited to get back to Alaska and start this entire process. Please feel free to add any comments, constrictive criticism, or questions you may have!
