My 2017 Smoky Mountain JKU Build

My Jeep is my daily driver so I have been building it with that in mind.
She does get some sand and mud in her shoes on occasion.

Here she is sitting on the dealers lot.


And a few days later on a little outing to a local national park.


And as she sits now.
Terraflex Leveling kit, 34" Falken Wildpeak AT3/w's, Bestop Supertop NX and lots of smaller touches. Rugged Ridge Grille inserts and door handle inserts, stubby antenna.



Here's a few at the Panama City Beach Jeep Beach Jam 2018.



There she is! Second from the left.


I'm considering new bumpers but I'm not sure. I'll just have to wait and see what's next. I'm sure I'll come up with something.
It is never "done".

Thanks for checking it out.

looks nice dude, how are you liking those wlidpeak tires, seem like a good alternative to the usual BFGoodrich A/Ts. pretty good in the dirt/sand? I can tell the difference between the duelers and the old MTs i used to run, but I am thinking an aggressive A/T might be all i need these days.

The Wildpeaks have been great. They are super quiet and I haven't lost any fuel mileage at all.
So far they have done excellent in the mud, dirt and sand. I haven't used them in the snow but this winter they will get put to the test I'm sure.
Also they were $1200 for 5 out the door. I was pretty happy with the price.
