Contact Jeep Performance Industries. The owner is Stan he is a member here. I saw his JKU on Dishpan yesterday and he was the ONLY rig to make it through the hardest line without stacking rocks. I have never been a fan of the JKs but after seeing his I was VERY impressed.

He goes by JPi1 here on the forum.

Look up " Jeep Skinz " online. The specialize in magnetic body panel covers that you slap on before wheeling to minimize unwanted pinstriping.

JPI will get you anything you need. With a JKU Rubicon, you already have decent rails, though more coverage is always better. I would start with skid plates. EVO makes a 3 piece set for the JKU that covers most of the vital areas, it's around $400 for the parts.

I would also advise diff covers. The factory ones have a bad habit of peeling off on rocks which can ruin your day.

I had the above installed by JPI as my next mod after my lift, but I think skids are a good first mod so you can wheel it right away with less of a chance of breaking things.

Mods I got in orders:

Wheels -- My biggest mistake. Got 33's because I didn't have a lift yet. Should've waited. Now saving up for 35's.

Lift + front driveshaft + Ace and Rubi rails
EVO 3 piece skid set
Diff covers
Front axle swap to a Rubi D44 + sleeve and gussets (you obviously don't need this)
Synergy tie rod - Stock one bends easily

Yep, go with Stan at Jeep Performance who is right in your backyard in Yucaipa. I've wheeled and BS'd with Stan over several offroad trips in Big Bear and Calico and he's a really good trustworthy guy. Stan's only problem is the TV show theme song music he uses for his fun trivia contests where we have to guess the name of the TV show are all too new for me to know.

Thank you for the tips guys, I will get in contact with him soon.

Today me and the girls took coxey trail to big pine from apple valley, when I got to the crab flats turn off it was all I could do to hold the wheel straight and head to fawnskin. Dishpan was calling my name so strong, lol.

When I get my rig geared up for the trip I sure would like to follow someone up and down it that knows the ins and outs.

Thanks Jerry, I'll work on some of the black and white shows that were popular before remote TVs!
Thanks for the acknowledgement and kind words.
