Wilson X, did you have the painted flares? If so, are you interested in selling?? I have a granite crystal 4dr Rubi now. I put painted flares off a 2dr on my black 2012 JKU right before I sold it and loved the look. Let me know.

Here are a couple recent videos. The 1st one is from a couple weeks ago and the last one is from this past Saturday near Chattanooga. Had a blast. Nothing extreme, but had a blast as usual




Oh and I finally have some progress pics of my CJ7! I will only post one here. There are some more on my thread in my signature. It is finally starting to look like a Jeep again!

If he's not interested, i may be. Flat flares are on my list and knowing I had the stockers sold would help ease the pain a little..

Had to get the 14 granite crystal to match our mustang, not sure what the color is called but it super close and sparkles like the jeep.

Looks like either Tungsten Met or Alloy Met...nice rides. We have a grabber orange mustang gt, and I thought I wanted a Dozer jeep, but the wife talked me out of it. Love the Granite!

Trucklite head and fog lights, AEV 2.5 Dual sport lift with geometry brackets, Twill Trek Top NX, Granite Alloy GV8 wheels with 35" MTR's, Smittybilt SRC rock rails and the list goes on. Anyone running these Granite Alloy GV8 wheels. The outer ring looks like it will match the granite but I'd love to know for sure before I order them. I'll post pics as the work progresses.
Decided to go with the Rugged Ridge wheels in gunmetal instead. I'll have the lift, wheels and tires on this weekend. So excited I can hardly stand it!!!

I'll upload pics this weekend.

I ordered it in raw steel so I could have it color matched to the body.
New to this thread.... looks awesome!!! Just purchased a Granite Crystal Rubi a couple weeks ago.

GMACK192, are you planning to upgrade the battery when you install the winch? I was asking because I have a Smittybilt XRC 9.5 Gen 2 winch on order and was curious if I need to upgrade the battery.
Thanks

Not right away. I've had the winch for about 2 years (on my woods truck) and have only used it once. That was to load an old CJ5 on a trailer. If I was going to use it regularly, I would.

This is the winch..


Now I've gotta find another winch for the Yota.. I want to get one of the narrow drum, high speed winches.. Knock on wood, I have never had to winch the truck out. And the only time it has been "stuck" was because of a fire.

The Yota a.k.a. The woods truck
..

Here is a Granite Rubicon for sale if anyone is looking... Oh wait... Did he really slap a Rubicon sticker on a Sport. And the best part of this ad - "This is NOT a Rubicon, it's better!". I got a chuckle out of this ad so I thought I would share it. He did get the Granite right

Here is the link to the ad:

My 2014 Sahara Granite

Something about this Granite Crystal that simply blew me away.
I traded in my 1999 Sahara the moment I noticed it for a 2014 Sahara.

I wired all 4 switches up, but only am using 2 right now. I coiled up the extra wire behind that door jam panel so when I need another switch to use I don't have to take the panel off. Each of the 4 un used wires are labeled so it will be easy to wire up to them.
Got that wiring finished up this weekend. 5670 lumens from the CREE LEDs with a flood/ spot combo looks like more than I'll ever need on a trail at night!

I guess mine was the last? Took delivery 7/16, JKUR, saddle leather, 430N, 4:10 (no side airbags though)
