This is our second Jeep " Franken Jeep " 2013 JKUR built in Dec, brought it home last week. Auto, 4.10 gears, 430 nav, conectivity, frontside airbags, heated seats

The other is a 2012 Crush 2dr JK sport. It will be receving the wheels/tires, springs and shocks when I complete Franken's build.

The plan is for:

AEV argent pintlers or black savegre wheels
AEV front bumper
Tereflex rear tire carrier
AEV heat reduction hood

It's rail car dust. Very common. A clay bar will take it off.

33" Mickey Thompsons with Rigged Ridge rims
KC off roads on windshield mounts
Carbon fiber wrap on front grill, bug deflector and covering front and back silver bumper inserts
Gas door
Tail light guards
Hitch shackle
Custom gecko limited edition badging replacing Sahara logos

Thinking about a better exhaust so she doesn't sound like a sewing machine so if anyone's got any advice I'd love to hear it!

Cheers!
where did you buy the gecko ltd edition decal?

I like how your wheels stick out! What is the back spacing on your rims?

Coil springs 18/59 and 3/4" front spacers, spring retainers front and rear, 3" bumpstops front and rear, 12.8" travel shocks, cut some metal out of rear part of wheel well.
Great stance! What size are those tires?

Wrap and badging done at Maher Sign Products in Mississauga, Ontario. Any good 3M sign supplier can do it - you're welcome to copy it if you want!
Cheers, Scott.

Thanks! Well this took some research but here you go... Couldn't figure out the back spacing but rims are Rugged Ridge 17x9 with a 12mm offset. Part #15301.01. Hope that helps!

Great, thanks! That would be about 5" back spacing. Calculation is: 9:2+0.47 (the 12mm offset). They say you shouldn't go less than 3.5 backspacing. That helps me figure out how thick of wheel spacers I can use.

Hi y'all! New Gecko owner here. My welcome post is here:
Virginia here. First Jeep in 10 years. 4th in my lifetime. '13 JKU Saraha "Gecko".

Got the Gecko Sahara so the fenders match. Wondering if I should have gotten the color-matching hard top. Do you think I'll be able to get one in the future from the factory (or dealer)? Or am I limited to getting black hardtops?

Anyhow, here's a few pics:

All Clean!

Finally a day to clean up. 30F, with 22mph winds, but it needed a wash.

Welcome from a fellow northern Virginia Gecko Sahara owner!

As for the color matched top, the dealership had one, but I was not a fan. I love my Gecko, but it was a bit much with the matching top. I think it needs the black top to set it off.

I say to each his(her) own - if you love the all green like I do then go for it! Doubt you'll get it through dealer though as the gecko colour production run is now over I hear.

I just joined the club. 2013 JK Rubicon in Gecko Green. Pics to follow.

I've wanted a Wrangler ever since I was 5 years old and sat in an overly patriotic red, white and blue '89 YJ while my mom was buying a Jeep Cherokee.

I am surprised how many Geckos must still be on the lots since production ended awhile ago yet there are lots of new owners still. They should be drying up soon.

We got ours in December, and had to go 650 miles to find it.

Well Gecko is a great choice.Too bad your YJ is gone. It looked cool. Never was a fan of the square headlights but they have grown on me in recent years. Nice YJs are getting harder to find due to age now.
