Manamal JKU Build

Over the past 5 days, the list of mods i'm going to apply to Manamal, the Deep Cherry Red JKU, has changed. But here is the current list, and as each piece comes in and gets installed I'll post pictures of all.

Wheels: Mountain Crawler Black 15x10
Tires: Goodyear MT/R & Kevlar 35X12.50R15
Lift: BDS JK 4 Door 3" Suspension & Lift
Rails: ACE JK Rock Sliders
Front Bump: Rough Country JK Bump Caps
Rear Bump: TBD
Quick Discos: DIY from Hardware Store
Antenna: 13" Off Road Antenna

I'm also going to be painting some of the interior trim items to match the deep cherry red. e.g. Suicide Bar plate, door trim, AC vent.

Some extras will be:
Hi Lift Jack w/ DIY Mount inside
Bottle Opener w/ Magnetic cap catcher on inside of rear door
DIY Fender Mods
DIY Mesh grill mod


I'd love to know if you've used any of these products with success or failures, and criticism is welcome... after all this IS the internet...

After doing some investigating, I'm told that the 15x10 wheels wont work on my 2012 JKU and without spacing or moding the brake caliper i'd be in trouble so i'm back to using the stock wheels and putting GY Wrangler MT/R w/ Kevlar on the stock 17" alloys.
