WranglerEvo's Detonator 2Dr Build

Hi everyone,

Thought I would start my build thread as I'm finally starting to add mods to the Jeep.

This is my first Jeep, and I'm looking forward to learning a lot while upgrading her. Seems like a good vehicle to work on.

Some facts:
  • 2009 2dr X
  • 3.73 Gears
  • Auto
  • Bought when it had 67k miles, have since put on it nearly 8k

Mods purchased so far:
  • Trucklites
  • Ace Rock Sliders

On the way home from the dealer

Some exploring

Trucklites Install

Ace Rock Sliders Install

Note: I thought I would be able to get away with grinding with just one side, but to have it sitting flush inside the block, it needs to be trimmed on either side.

Yummy, two of the four body mounts had this buildup of dirt

Old but trustworthy grinder I borrowed

Who needs friends, here's my awesome setup for installing the sliders

Whats the next big steps will be:

  • Rubicon Springs and Shocks (Discovered today that the front springs are different rates )
  • 33" Tires and rims
  • Front and Rear bumpers
