So after years of being away from Jeep's the bug bit me again. I have been buying and rebuilding salvage vehicles for years, and this JKU just so happened to pop up at an insurance auction about an hour away from where I live, so I bit the bullet and bought it to satisfy my itch.
What we have here is a 2013 Wrangler Unlimited Sahara with 46k miles. Has an AEV 3.5 lift on it with Pinters. Front axle is bent, along with both RH mounts completely torn off. Fender flare is MIA, but damage to actual fender is minimal. Pitman are is sheared off the steering gear, and all the steering linkage is bent beyond repair. Otherwise, it fires right up and is in pretty good shape overall.
So the first step was getting it off the trailer. Made a little progress yesterday and welded all the mounts back together, put the wheels back on and here it is ready to drive off.
Now I'm on the lookout for parts. Originally my plan was to LS Swap this, throw a set of Mopar 60's with 6" long arm kit under it and run 38's or 40's. That being said, this will end up being a slow build for the next few months, as I am in the beginning stages of building a new shop in the backyard to work out of.
Great to be back in the Jeep community.
