UGATyler Jeep Build

Here are a few pictures of the progression of my Jeep. First pic is from the day I brought her home. Took the top off so I would know how to do it.

The first few mods were:
  • Rugged Ridge floor mats
  • Rugged Ridge grab handles
  • Mopar step in protectors
  • Antenna X stubby antenna

Then I added a few more toys right after Christmas:
  • ACE Rock Sliders
  • Rugged Ridge XHD Bumper with hoop over and standard ends
  • Mopar gas cap cover

My latest Mods have been:
  • Teraflex Performance Leveling Kit (coils) 1.5"
  • KMC XD Addict wheels
  • 295/70/17 Toyo Open Country Mt's

Looks good.

I'm liking those wheels more each time I see them.

My wife and I found out a couple weeks ago that she is pregnant :D so I decided not to put the AEV 2.5" kit and 35's like originally planned. I decided to go with just a leveling kit and 295/70/17 tires (33.3/11.6/17) so that it would have a good stance but yet we would still be able to get in it with a child.

I think it turned out Perfect for now. I'm 5'9" and the jeep is a few inches taller than I am. I really can't believe how big of a difference the leveling kit made. The pictures don't do it justice.

Looks nice man. Congrats on the family news too. :thumb:

Ahh I'm blind ... Shiny :D

Looking good man.

UgaTyler 01-19-2013 08:41 PM

Thanks Guys! I like the way it turned out! I shined it all up so I could take pictures. Such a mall crawler move!

Yeah I went back and forth between these, cranks and misfits! I like my choice.

I added Coverking seat covers yesterday and when installing I had one of the buckles break and almost all of the pieces have some stitching coming loose. I am sending them back on Monday and ordering Trek Armors. They do look good installed though.

tried to reply earlier and i logged in and replied on your profile by accident. what is the finish on your wheels? is it a gloss?

looks great!

Brewbek 03-02-2013 01:47 PM

Looking great. I want to run some 33s on my Unlimited but I have 3.21s, don't think it will work so good. Bummed.

County98 03-02-2013 03:57 PM

Looks good brother!

The wheels are not very shiny so I think thy are matte black. Google image xd addicts and you will see tons of shots.

Yeah I would want to regear for my liking. Sometimes I feel like the 4.10's I have aren't enough.

Some folks do it though and don't seem to mind.

I'm not sure mine will ever get that clean again, after the winter we've had.

Looks fantastic! :thumb:

I was about to say, better add some red. My wife is from GA and she is a dawgs fan. I am from Alaska and asked her if you could climb stone mountain (I think that's what she calls it) with a wrangler. So can you?

Yeah, I have been keeping mine parked in the carport for a lot of the winter. I have been driving it on the weekends when it's nicer outside. Luckily I live in the south and winters aren't that bad... but it has been raining a lot.

I know you can walk up one side of the mountain because I did it when I was a kid. I'm not sure if they allow vehicles to go up it though.

very imposing looking. great looking jeep.

MudRunner 03-02-2013 05:40 PM

Nice build. I'm especially a fan of the wheel/tire combo. But I may be biased as I run the exact same combo :D

Yeah I saw that earlier today when you posted after me about the auto lights thing. You should throw some pics up on your profile or "garage".

Just recently added a spiderwebshade jkini as well. I opted for the front seat version only.

A few more shots of the spiderweshade jkini. I love the jkini. It has made riding topless in 50 degree weather EASY. I can't wait to take the top and doors all the way off. Possible later this weekend into early next week.

hey love those wheels man! what offset are they? did you have any clearance issues with that wheel tire combo? could you have went up to 12.5 inches in width??
