kampcools 2015 JKUR build

I've been a member for a few years now, and have done a few mods.
Now its time to get serious (57,000 miles accrued while prepping).

My JKUR is my daily driver, and I have been saving and studying. Its a lot of money to do it the way I want to do it. (working class/blue collar).

Then the Wife needed an upgrade too, from a Patriot to a 2015 Grand.

This has been a long time coming for me, and I hope you guys can relate, and enjoy.

This is my 1st Wrangler, and I am still in love with it, like the day I signed for it.

Mod order by FUNCTION

#1) I knew I was going to need a better REAR bumper/Tire carrier/TOW receiver, before a lift and bigger tires

#2) I also made some clearance by installing some rugged ridge hurricane fenders (not knowing which lift I was going for).

#3) I HATE the breaking system on my stock JKUR, so I had to make this a priority before LIFT.

Appollo Intech install



This install is super easy, no need to even document anything on this 2015 JKUR AUTO trans CANADIAN MARKET JEEP (Purchased in Mi., as a dealer promo with 5,000 miles.)

Unsuspected FIND

During the AppolloTech pod install, I discovered this:





Is this a OEM Block Heater? Anybody else have this?

I discovered my jeep was a Canadian Market only, having my radiator replaced (1st American Dealership turned me away). I was PISSED, as it was NOT disclosed. It did explain the annoyance of my headlights always being on, tho...

Many thanks to my Jeep neighbor of the North. Are there any more exclusive North American Mopar secrets I will discover, in a Canadian Market Build?

I did NOT need to use a special tool to remove that transfer case pinion yoke. It came off easy without any hammers or pipe wrenches. I was able to hold the yoke, while Jeep was in nuetral and impact it off.


I have Five 8 houur days into this build, and all is installed. It took me a long time, because Its my 1st Wrangler lift, and I took care to reinstall every bolt with grease, or locktite where needed.


Tommorrow, I will tighten everything to torque specs, and drive to an alignment.
Many pics to come. I didnt do a bolt by bolt shoot of this install, but enough to point out some tricky spots. (and there were a few). Ill be 50 yrs old this year, and I am feeling it.

I went after the driveshaft 1st, fearing the pinion flange cv yoke at the transfer case, was going to be hard. IT was EASY.

I used a yoke puller from autozone, and the old CV (transfer case pinion yoke) popped right off.

Heres the new mopar supplied.

This Mopar kit relies a lot on oem hardware bolts, so I kept them with my junk pile.





Heres some pics of Front Removal

Hot topic slotted holes achieved by surgical saw, cutoff wheel, and pliers, and a small file.





Im not too worried about this controversial cam bolt slot. If it becomes an issue, Ill weld some permanent washers where needed.

Spring install, with bumpstop cans inside. Note you should only be doing one side at a time, and how my brand new JEEPs axle is on the ground.

No turning back now..

Brake line switch. Old for new extended Mopar lines.

BEFORE CRACK A BRAKE LINE ON A JK, PROP SOMETHING INSIDE THE CABIN DEPRESSING YOUR BRAKE PEDAL AT FULL!!!!!!!

This will prevent your master cylinder from leaking all that precious brake fluid from the reservoir, and cylinder. If you allow this, you may have to have the dealership do a software flash to bleed all that air from your system.





I broke it at the banjo bolt 1st, let it leak, and by the time I disconnected at the top, it was done weeping.

Tightening the cans proved pesky.

Steering arm removal for over the top Mopar arm. This hole needed to be drilled out to 7/8th of an inch. That's .875, last time I checked. The Mopar sleeve for the new arm was .895 in diameter, which should have been vocalized in the instructions they wanted a tight (almost pressed fit).

When I got to this step, and realized what was up, I threw my bushing sleeve in the freezer, and champherd the 7/8 hole ever so slightly. After a long break, took the sleeve out of the freeze, and it went in with zero fight.

Steering stabilizer. Jumped onto foxes website. Turn to full lock right, and set for 1/4 inch clearance of travel left in the shock. Mopars instructions, never even mentioned where to stage this.

My JK on the ground, with no jacks. This picture shows the difference between a stock rubicon, and a 4 inch lift/ 35s Rubicon.

More pics to come soon of the rear, and final stages of this "do it yourself" install.

My body is covered in cuts, scrapes, bumps and bruises. I have been in a 5 day Jeep fight, but its starting to look like it was worth it.

I appreciate the thumbs up, BUILDIT. In the Army, I was an Infantryman, Airborne Ranger qualified. I drank the water, and did all that supertroop stuff. We had training called M.O.U.T (Military Operations in Urban-warfare Training).

We would be rolling around on concrete for weeks in fake cities, and buildings honing our skills. We would even sleep on the concrete. Crawl through irrigation pipes, etc.


I feel like I just spent a week in MOUT, But hell yeah it was worth it. My family thinks Im crazy for doing it myself, but I wanted that install money for more mods. Also, I needed to learn my JEEP. Her and I are intimate now. I learned a lot of the pet peeves these JKs do hold.
