Install looks great!
Thanks Star!
That is a great idea with the screen liner, I will definitely be doing that!
(ps- been following your build thread, really awesome job!)

I've only got 20 miles on it so far as its been slowly getting built. I'm getting a little anxious to drive it now that its getting close.

Lift- RK 3.5 Max Travel, RK Tie Rod, Bilsteins, synergy ball joints. I am swapping the springs to 2.5 though. I think its a tad to tall with the 3.5s, just like advertised you get a lot more lift with RK.
Tires- MTRK 37s v-tec raptor wheels
Bushwacker flares
Teraflex exhaust spacer- gonna get driveshafts once I can measure with everything installed.
Artec armor kit for front axle
JCR front and rear bumpers should be here in the next week or so. I am still debating how to coat the bumpers, leaning towards spray on bedlining them.

I'm just waiting on bumpers and the 2.5 in springs to finish it.

Is this the 37" on 3.5 lift? So you think you can get away with 2.5 lift and the flat fenders and 37" ? Did you have to cut anything?

The picture is with the 3.5s. I think it will be fine, the 2.5s will actually get me 3 in or more I suspect and I know that many others are running a similar setup. I've trimmed the rails so far, but until I can get the 2.5s on this weekend I'm not sure how much more trimming will be needed. Here are a few more pics.

Very nice man! What bumpers did you end up going with? Do you still have the X bumpers or did you end up selling them?

I have got to stop looking for Jeep stuff I couldn't pass on this MBRP Off Camber Fabrications full width rear bumper... Brand new - paid $170. I figure if I don't like it I can sell it to someone else locally. I may sand and paint flat black to match front bumper. Probably pick up the first of next week. Here is a picture of it.

Nice dude...is there a tire carrier/gate or will you use the stock on the rear door? Nice pick up either way...

Thanks man! I'm pretty pumped and think I got a great deal on it. No, it doesn't have a tire carrier. I plan on ordering the teraflex tire carrier when I buy the lift and tires.

I didn't order the tow package on the rubicon from the factory because it seemed way overpriced and is an easy DIY project(AND I have a truck I do most towing with). I need to order the trailer hitch since this bumper works with the factory setup.

Sell me on Granite

I am considering Granite when I order my JK but I still have not seen it in person. It looks different in a lot of photos that I see. I've seen it look charcoal grey, brownish, even have a little purple hue to it. I'm sure lighting and quality of the camera/phone has a lot to do with this.

What does it really look like in person? What do you like about it? Is it better than you thought? Worse? Any regrets? Tell me why this is the coolest color for 2014 Wranglers.

Thanks.

Hey ive seen alot of granite jeeps lately, and the best way i can describe it is its all of those colors, besides maybe purple haha, but definitely changes with weather, and sun/shade. I really like the color because of that, at night it looks like charcoal, and waxed during the day, dark to light grey. It also looks like it will hide scratches well(at least better than black). I just ordered a granite rubicon, and i think the wheels, and any black accessories will look sick as well!

Looks great! You certainly got a serious lift, I can't believe its only 3.5".

That is a sweet bumper, SP. You certainly find some great deals on cool stuff!
Please add pics when you put it on.

Update: AEV thinks my build will get done end of next week, meaning hopefully I have it home around Feb1. Fingers crossed….

I've seen it in person and like so many others would say the photos don't do this color justice. Its got depth to it, definitely changes with the light and is just badass. You won't regret it. It is a nice change from black, but still a very manly color.

If 45 pages of Granite Awesomeness can't convince you I don't know what else to tell you. Granite will look awesome on your willys wheeler with half doors. Go for it! But most importantly - get what YOU like!

If the color Granite were ice, I think you could sell it to an eskimo.

haha, thanks. I do enjoy selling - that's what I do for a living and is what is always on my mind... besides Jeeps and Bacon.
