‘13 Rubicon

Just got this today, super excited. Was able to trade my ‘17 Colorado Z71 for it(which I loved was just too long). Has lights and a winch on it which is a nice plus.

‘13 with 80k miles.(7/9/19)

Nice looking Ride..

I do suggest that you put a stock engine air cleaner on it. Also look to see if the intake pipe and throttle body need to be cleaned.

My next steps are
>Figure our what these lights are she’d put on are, they just seem like budget eBay/amazon

>Maybe switch out the M/T’s for A/T’s, these things are bumpy, and the A/T’s are enough traction for my area

>Get a rack for my Tepui

>Build some sliding cabinets for the back for long overlanding adventures

I might make myself sound like an idiot here but, do you mean taking out the aftermarket intake?

And thanks for the heads up on the intake pipe and throttle body, it came from a dealer so I figured I wouldn’t worry but since it’s even mentioned at all, it makes me want to do it just for a piece of mind, cause let’s be real, dealers just want money.

Good looking ride and a great foundation to build off if you go that route. Any build plans in mind?

Way ta go! Mine is a Ď13 JKR and I am super happy and canít believe I waited this long. Iíve had mine three months. It came with a lift, tires/wheels and I added lights, bumper, winch and a few other goodies.
Enjoy!

Swap out the shocks as it has a bit of rake and they look fairly worn.

Then I am going to build a pull out cabinet for propane grill, pressurized (just by hand pump) sink, and drawers.

Then throw my tent on top and get and awning and hopefully go back to saving money after that 😄

Congrats! Sounds very similar to my recent purchase of a '17 JKUR from a local dealer. Also has a CAI that I plan to replace with a stock airbox as soon as I can lay my hands on one.

So far I've gotten rid of some of the cheapo Amazon lights and put on some 35's. This weekend I'll be installing a Vector Offroad JK e-Dock and an Apollointech 6 gang switch panel.

I'm not an expert on this subject, but I've seen some past discussion about aftermarket intakes being more prone to ingesting water, compared to the stock intake setup that is designed to avoid this when going through deep water.


That combined with the fact that these aftermarket intakes don't really give you any noticeable performance gains despite what some may claim, means it doesn't make a lot of sense to have one on a Wrangler that will be going off road.


Anyways, congrats on the acquisition. I got my first Jeep about a year and a half ago, and it has been a lot of fun.

They are actually Quadratec Hardrock wheels - 8.5" wide instead of 7,5" and they have 5.2" backspace instead of 6.25.

Keeps 'em tucked in while still being able to wear 35s'.

Got an axe for when I’m camping. Got a nice non wood for when I’m not home so I’m not worried about it thrashing around and getting weathered.

Took the Jeep on its first trip(with me) and it was lots of fun. So much easier of a ride than my Colorado. Didn’t take any pics on the road of articulation, but climbed a tiny rock once we got to the spot
