My ‘16 Hard Rock Build.

Picked my Jeep up in July with 12,500 on the OD. I wanted to do a slow build, but you know how that works! Lol Everthing was stock, but the previous owner put a set of JW speaker headlights (yes!).
3.6 with auto trans
3.73’s

For my build, I want to leave the originality of the hard rock. Using the same bumper, fenders, and as much factory options on. Central Va doesn’t have any hard core off-roading , unless your willing to travel. But we do have some decent fire roads in the national park. So she will see a lot of pavement, but will be build to wheel.

Here’s how she looked when I got her home

So, as my slow build went I added a couple things WarnVR8000s winch, Maxxis bar and winch mounting plates, along with the stealth license plate bracket. And a teraflex leveling kit.

Regearing is one the top of my list, want 4.88’s. Going to be summer before I can swing that though. I’ve gotten prices from 2 -2.5k on the regear. I need a front driveshaft, and would like to add some lights.

Ha, love it. I did the "slow build" too, at least that's what I told my wife!
