17 Rhino Hardrock

Should have started this thread a while ago but oh well. I have a 2017 Hardrock with AEV 3.5 lift with BFG KM2 35 and Galaxy Black AEV Borah with protection ring. Also have the Teraflex hinge and adjustable tire mount as well as Mopar brush bar for Hardrock bumper.

Some of my upcoming plans:

-Hyline Inner fender liners with red painted mesh
-Warn 10s with Maximus 3 winch plate
-Rigid Industries Flush mount lights for rear bumper (not sure yet)
-JW Speaker fogs
-ARB Diff covers

Awesome! I have the same Rhino Rubicon Recon edition and it is in the shop today getting the 2" Mopar lift. Borah's in galaxy black and BFG 35's shipped yesterday from Quadratec. So cool to see the same rig and very similar upgrades. Your 3.5" lift looks great. I also really like the Mopar brush guard you have. I didn't get the protection rings for now but I like the way they look on yours. I was on the fence between the Borah's in galaxy black or in onyx black. The onyx looked a lot like the stock wheel color which I like but in the end I decided to go with the darker galaxy black. Love getting to see them on your jeep. Hope you are happy with all the upgrades and keep posting the pic's. Thanks.

Looks good. Time to get some dirt on that beast. JCR makes a good bumper plate as well. Significantly less than maximus-3 I think. Just a thought.

Cant wait too see when its done! Thank you appreciate that. Just a heads up on the rings, when you buy them, you will have to rebalance. At first I was going to wait but then decided to just go for them to avoid this.

Just installed the hyline Inner liners. Kept the grills silver instead of red. Very tight fit when you install them.

Nice. Friend at work just picked up a Hardrock after he rolled his 2007 JKU.
