2017 2 Door Granite Rubicon Recon

I picked up this Jeep on June 30, 2018. I traded in a black 4 door rubicon. Unfortunately I didn't take many pictures of it before I started modifying it. This build will be slow because I am heading to college. I plan to keep it mild and plan on using mostly AEV parts. The bike I picked up the same day as the Jeep!

My first mod was cutting out the stock hood vents so that they are functional.

I also did not take many pictures during installs of modifications unfortunately. I am planning on taking pictures during future installs. The next mod was an AEV tire carrier. Found it on craigslist in Idaho. It was a fun drive through West Yellowstone to pick it up. When I got home I found out it was missing some things, so I had to order some extra parts from AEV to get it mounted.

I changed the diff fluid today. Switched to lube lockers to make future changes easier.
