Stevilís RubiX Cubed Build

I realized Iím doing enough mods and planning even more so I thought I would enjoy creating a build thread to share.

First, the name - this is my 3rd jeep, and itís a Rubicon X, so RubiX3 seemed like a cool moniker, and when read out would be Rubix Cubed. And noÖ Iím not going for a replica of this:

I custom ordered my 2014 Anvil Rubicon X package back in November, and picked it up early February. My first jeep was a 98 TJ Sport, 2nd was a 2012 Sahara, neither of them were heavily modded, but after lurking here for a long time I really figured out what I wanted. SO, I convinced my wife that I would save money by buying a new Jeep and selling the old and the order was placed: Rubicon, X Package, Automatic transmission, Dual Tops (body color), remote start, supplemental side air bags, auto A/C. I also got plain fenders and the base stereo (which no on-lot X came with that I could find) since I knew Iíd be ripping them off/out anyway since after market flat fenders are cooler and the stock head unit is total crap - so why pay the money?

My first objective was to meet my wifeís criteria: backup-camera and parking sensors. So, of course, I needed a new head unit, subwoofer and CBÖ all detailed here:

2014 JKUR X Audio Rip-out & Custom Build Thread

Still need to get the parking sensors in, and I just did the front camera, but realized it shows an inverted image which is perfectly suitable for a rear camera, but not for front, so Iíll need to order a replacement for that. Iíve also since junked the stubby 5Ē antenna X, and will be looking for an alternative. Likely a multiplexor with either the CB or HAM radio antenna. Waiting for a review on this one: Use Your CB Antenna As Your AM/FM Radio Easily!

Iíve also been exploring additional comms equipment. I picked up a Baofeng UV-B6 handheld transceiver for $40 that does the 2M & 70CM HAM bands, as well as FRS, GMRS and Marine. That has gotten me interested enough to work on getting my HAM license, and fixed mobile unit may be in the future. Weíll see.

I added front mud/splash guards, since I was tired of the sides of my jeep covered in mud and junk (itís my daily driver) just from the commute. I installed them with quick push connects, so it will be a few minute job to remove them when I hit the trails.

And, after lurking over on Expedition Portal, I got all excited about roof top tents and dispersed camping, so got a great deal on a CVT Mt. Shasta Roof Top Tent off craigslist.

Of course that needed a good rack to sit on, so after a bunch of research and determining I wanted a no-drill setup that I could use with hard or soft-top, ended up with the Gobi Stealth rack. Alec @ EAD Offroad gave me a good deal ordering through them, and fingers crossed, it arrives tomorrow, a few weeks ahead of when I thought I'd get it! EAD also hooked me up with an ARB awning and mosquito net.

Here are the front mudguards installed



I did use 2 screws for each mudflap + 4 quick disconnects. I'll swap out the screws later I think. I'm really not sure if I'm going to even bother taking them off on the trail. We will see.

It was also helpful to turn the steering wheel all the way left & right to get the drill in there to bore out the holes.

Gobi Rack and ARB Awning

This arrived today!!!

EAD offroad hooked me up and delivered inside of Gobi's factory direct estimate.

Now I know what I'm doing tomorrow night...

So I will finally have a place to mount these:



Also courtesy of EAD offroad.

Thanks Alec!

My wife texted met to know it arrived... I texted her back to to get it unboxed.. She told me "got it installed already and the rooftop tent is on as well" if only...

Holy doublemint twins batman

I have the exact same Rubi-X ordered, same UV-B6 (using Chirp), same plans for comms, same plans for mud guards, same plan for awning. Only difference is sleeping arrangements, and front camera/parking sensors.
will be following along closely on your build.

I'm thinking about a Kenwood D710-A to use as a crossband repeater when out hiking away from the Jeep, and using a tablet ported into an after market head unit for nav/music (just now starting to look into this).

So keep those posts and pictures coming!

Comanche Scott... that is pretty crazy! We'll have to compare notes on the ham setup. I still don't have my license, but am going to get it before the deadline in June when the test bank is new. I'm planning to play with APRS, and never thought about a mobile repeater. That's a good idea.

On Wednesday I started installing the Gobi rack, and finished it up tonight.

Good news for Rubicon X owners, you don't need to totally take off the back bumper, just the plastic end-cap-wraparound things. They unscrew with 3 10mm bolts on the inside:



This is the original inside bracket: you have to remove this to attach the Gobi rack components, and I found that when reinstalling this bracket had to mount it on the back side of the bumper mount.



Not the best picture, but here's how I handled propping up the top rack so I could bolt it on. I thought I could handle this myself, but wasn't able to. My wife was able to help me attach the bolts while I held the rack in place.



then... I totally forgot about my garage door opener being in the way, so had to do some tricky navigation to get the jeep backed up in a way that I could lower the rack and not get it hung up on the garage door opener... My wife wasn't pleased... but was satisfied when nothing else I could do would possibly kill me...



I finished up with the rack, installed the ladder, upper stabilizers and the ARB awning mounts. My camera died, but I'll post some more pics tomorrow.

The Gobi rack is fully installed and I'm digging it. I also got my ARB 2500 awning installed. The awning wasn't the easiest. First I had to go to the home despot and secure new bolts, and then it was pretty hard to hold up an 8' awning by myself... After I got it on I realized that contrary to the instructions attaching the awning to the rack adapters first then just hanging the adapters on the rack rail would have made it much easier. When I remove it for storage that's what I'll do.

The rack:

The awning installed:


I also started on the rear sensors... But f'ed up the drilling for one of the right ones. There's a screw bracket in the way. I got the hole bored, but now need to figure out how to easily remove it. You can see in the 1st pic the hole.

The CVT RTT is installed. Taking it out with the family (wife, 3 yr old daughter and 6 yr old
Son) tomorrow for a shakedown overnight at a local park.


I shifted it to the drivers side more, so the annex wouldn't bump up so tight against the wheel. I may end up shifting it forward, but I'll see how it stakes out tomorrow. Advantage of foreword is I could use the rear rack space for cargo.

We are totally glamping in this... I have a double high queen air bed in the annex (with a headboard! Ha ha). Fits perfectly. Wife's happy so I am too!

I have actually been doing a bunch, but haven't put any pics up. Tonight I pulled the ends off my X bumper to see how it would be as a stubby. I like it, but like many others I broke the "nuts" and stripped a few bolts removing them. Not sure they will go back on with the original ones. But, I'm not sure I'm putting them back on! I'll see after I get my metal cloak fenders how I like the look. I also replaced the stock fog lights with LEDs. The picture just shows one replaced so you can see the difference.

A few months ago I ordered the Maximus-3 Stinger and got my Quadratec Q11000 winch installed. I ordered the stinger with the vacuum relocate option and also got the quick release license plate mount, centering kit and red hawse lead. Extremely high quality and I've been very pleased. I didn't use the vacuum pump relocate, which was a mistake. Without it, the winch gets in the way of two bolts that hold the front bumper on. Kits still secure, but I will be ripping it apart to redo it at some point.

The winch was super easy to install, and while I haven't been able to use it yet I'm confident in its ability to get me out of any situation that it can.





I also had my Flowmaster high clearance cat back muffler installed. I won it at a fundraiser for C.O.P.S. It's the American Outlaw model. The sound has grown on me. It isn't as low sounding as I would like but the tuck under design and no more giant muffler makes up for it.

Talking I got a flat, so Taking Rubix3 to the next Level...

If you let a Jeep owner go wheeling, chances are, heíll eventually get a flat tire, and as you know, when a Jeep owner needs a new tire, heís going want a set of bigger onesÖ 37Ē Goodyear MT/R Kevlars to be exact:
And if you give a Jeep owner some new tires, heís going to want some new wheels to go with themÖ some Raceline custom aluminum Monster beadlocks with 3.75Ē of backspace:
And those tires and wheels are going to require some more clearance, so this Jeep owner opted for the full MetalCloak Overline system:
which needs to includes the exoskeleton, front and rear fenders & flares, and rock rails.

If you give this Jeep owner a new MetalCloak Overline system, heíll want everything will be be powder coated Anvil to match his jeep. But, that will not be good enough, so heíll apply a coat of Plasti-Dip on the Flares and Rails - or at least on the trim parts of those.

Of course, the MetalCloak system must be completed by adding the MetalCloak front inner fenders:
Grill reinforcement brackets:
And LED marker lights:

If you give this Jeep owner a full MetalCloak system, with all the accessories to fit the 37Ē beadlocks, heíll need to re-gear to 5.13 with a set of front and rear Yukon rings & pinions:

And if he re-gears, heíll want some new bearings.

And if he gets some new bearings heíll want some new custom differential covers.

And while the shop is at it, heíll want an Artec front axle armor kit to truss and gusset his front axle:

And if you are trussing and gusseting the axle, heís going to want some new Teraflex ball joints:

And now, with all this in place, this Jeep owner will need a place to mount that new spare 37Ē tire (just in case he gets another flat), so heíll need a Terraflex HD Adjustable carrier to go with it:

And then, with everything installed, this Jeep owner will want to take the Jeep wheelingÖ and if you let this Jeep owner go wheeling, heís going to hit some harder trails, and when he hits those harder trails, chances are something else will breakÖ. to be continued

I want to try a low center of gravity first. I have a roof top tent, and I'm even worried that will be a bit too much. In the Spring I plan to add a terraflex prerunner long arm kit & under armor. All the work is being done by a local shop, Chaos Fab Shop. The owner also runs Whatley Racing and builds some pretty high performance rigs. He's been trying to get someone to do a no lift setup like this for awhile.

Really like the way you are going!

Where you go wheeling, do you have drop offs or big lips where the spare tire may catch the ground?
Saw a picture of a jeep at Moab, with the spare tire/carrier ripped off when the driver went up a real steep stair step.
The big spare tire at stock height may be something to consider, as it will most likely be the limiting factor on the departure angle. Would totally suck to rip the tire off, after all the awesome work you've been doing.

Thanks! I am beginning to get impatient waiting for parts to arrive...

You mean drop offs & lips like this?


I wish! Here in VA I haven't seen anything like you are talking about, but I also haven't taken my rig beyond its capabilities... but you make a good point. I'll have to consider that. My rear tow hook caught on a rock in a sinkhole once... I suppose I could always take it off and throw it in the back.

Or maybe just a Pin-hinged slider plate off the bumper to the spare, so that if you do end up going somewhere with cactus and vertical walls, you'll be good to go...

Yeah the wait can get frustrating, but man, when it's done it's going to be awesome!

Subscribed. I'm really interested to see how you like the fenders and the body armor. I'm looking to do the same to mine next. For now I did the DIY fender cut to make room for my 37's.

Definitely excited! I don't even care about Xmas presents for me this year (but don't tell my wife & kids!). I had a real crappy day yesterday, but when I got the pic from the shop it made up for it!

If you are going to trim the fenders and try no lift you should look at getting rims with 3.5" or 3.75" backspace. That's what I had custom made from raceline to eliminate any possibility of rub. I think ill end up with a small lift by the end of this though (is there an end? Haha)

Oh, and the metalcloaks arrived today! So off to paint next. I'm getting them body matched but am going to plastidip the edges black.

Tomorrow is the big day! Shop called and everything has arrived. Should take a week and a half. Drop her off tomorrow.

Oh, and because I haven't spent enough yet... I got a great deal on a complete premium hothead headliner kit w/ hush mat inserts for the hard top. $321 shipped direct.
