And so we start again. Grille mesh, side steps, bug deflector on. Lift this weekend and new wheels are in the garage waiting on new rubber.

Envious of the wheels. Iím waiting for the day I can just drop a couple grand and get tires, wheels, and a lift in order to do some more challenging off-roading. Cheers and good luck with your build.

Thank you. This is my 2nd Jk build so I have a definite path. I will not rush because I find the build is half the fun. Add and enjoy, add and enjoy.

I like the Rhino decals. What's the lower decal below the "Wrangler Unlimited" decal?

BTW..... The factory Rubicon BFG M/T tires really suck on snowy roads. The Sahara Bridgestone Duelers are better. Lol.

New build - Introducing Rhino

Here is a rendering of what Rhino will look like in spring with new 35Ē Pitbulls and ProComp wheels. The other mods come spring will be Poison Spyder Bombshells front and rear and possibly an AEV premium front bumper.

Rancho Geo brackets in and tires rotated. Feels nice and tight on the road now. PS diff covers, vent visors, and Delrin bushings still to go in. Got 3 of the 5 37Ē Pitbulls Pitbull Rockers so far.
