My Jeep build- the never ending process
 
6 Attachment(s)
So ill start out by saying that I plan to keep my Jeep forever and in 20 years it will be a true rock crawler.
It is a 06 Jeep wrangler unlimited Rubicon. And I bought is September of 2011. Stock.
Here's what I have on it now.
3 inch bds suspension lift
Rokmen lower control arms
Bfg mud terrain km2 33/12.5/15 on black rocks
Body armor front bumper/
Smittybilt X2o 8000 winch
Delta driving lights
Warn fog light
Rear smittybilt bumper
Smittybilt rocker guards.
G2 front diff cover

What I'm going to be getting soon
Metal cloak front and rear 6 or 4 inch overline fenders
Skidroad engine skid
Possibly shrockworks Point hammer bumper if my old bumper sticks out too much and I can sell one one for good price.

Here it is when I bought it

Open to any suggestions on ideas and yes I know that smittybilt is crap and I regret getting the rocker guards.

Why don't you like the smittybilt rocker guards? And are they the full tube ones or the steel plate with the step on em? (I can't tell from the pics)

Full tube ones bolt to frame I would not recommend then their too thin of tubing and don't get ones that drill into frame and if they say good hi lift jacking point even better

Ok. Thank you! I was thinking of getting those but now im not gonna get em. I think I'll get the smittybilt xrc ones instead

kylekae 04-18-2012 03:21 PM

man i wanted those pro comp 7028 but they discontinued them in the 15/8 on a 5 on 4.5 bolt circle. i was so bummed but i found some ones similar to those and thats what i got they are black rock street lock 952. i like them and they are good quality and made in the usa.

This look alot bigger than 33s

kylekae 06-17-2012 03:13 PM

Really well there 33's

As for smittybilt mine had tubes and were only frame mounted, so they weren't very solid. So I sold them.

And. I ORDERED MY METALCLOAK OVERLINE FENDERS front and rear 6 inch flare. Can't wait. Ill post pics of install when I get them.
