Project Phoenix: JK Action Truck Conversion Thread

Thought I'd share some of my progress lately on the build. I would like to say in advance, that I apologize for the Hiatus. I ended up taking a Job with JCR Offroad, and moving from NC to Michigan. Now a yearish later and I decided to move back to my home state of NC and join the RubiTrux team again.

The last time I posted here, my Jeep was somewhat in this state.
Rundown:
3.5" Rock Krawler Springs
Rubicon Express Radius Long Arm
Nemesis Industries Notorious Flares
37x13.50x17 Toyo Open Country MT
American Racing ATX Cornice Wheels
Poison Spyder BFH Front Bumper
Fab Fours Rock Sliders

Over a few months, it went from the pictured above to the following:
Same suspension, wheels and tires but decided on some JCR goodies to compliment it.

JCR Crusader Front and Rear Fenders
JCR Frame Chop Stinger Front Bumper
JCR Crusader Rock Sliders

Originally, I coated them in a raw silver color but then decided to back to the paint match. (I know.. I cant make up my mind.. but that is the gist of this entire build lol. Should be called Project Uncertainty)

Fast forward a few months, and JCR prototypes their new Fender Delete Corners. I fell in love with these and decided to pull the trigger on them too. Sold the crusader fender flares and was looking towards the mauler narrow's to compliment the deletes in the rear but ultimately decided to run flareless.

Here is when the fun really begins.
To make this completely different I decided to turn this into a truck. After researching tons of builds that had the JK8 kit (now discontinued), Gr8tops UTE conversion, and the Action Truck Conversion, I decided on the Action Truck and purchased from Angry Beaver Offroad in CA. They had the best price shipped so it was a no brainer.

Instead of a weld in panel, this kit includes a rear door panel with a storage door that opens to behind the seats and under the bed. There is actually a ton of storage here, which ultimately helped me make up my mind on it. I also purchased a Hellcat-style fiberglass hood from the same company.

The shipping was fast (4 days from CA to MI via Freight) and was delivered while the corners were off to Powdercoat.

I wasted no time at all and started stripping out the jk.

With this kit, the rear seat is removed, rear seatbelts are removed and the roll cage gets chopped. Luckily Dennis was there to guide me through lol

After that section is removed, the new cage needs to be test fitted and then installed in sections.

The conversion includes an H Cage that is bolted on behind the b pillar, and then through the floor using sandwich plates. LOCKTITE EVERYTHING.
The Rear sections are bolted through the hard top and then back to the original mounts a the back. Its a pretty strong setup using 2" tubing, however its not DOM. Not exactly a full race cage, but definitely strong.

From there, the rear door hinge plates are removed and the door panels are fitted in. The rear section of the cage is removed again, weather stripping is put down and the bed is set in place. There are two studs in the floor of a JK for the seat belts that this conversion uses to locate the bed perfectly. Once thats wrestled in place, I used some silicon to seal those studs, and tightened everything down.

After that the hard top is dropped into place, bolted down and sealed.

Something to keep in mind here is that if you want to reuse the sound bar, the speaker sections must be trimmed off and relocated. I really didnt care about that one as I have some plans to use rock lights as interior lighting and use wake tower speakers with a low profile sub for more sound if I need it.

More pictures of the finished conversion. All in all, it took 9.5 hours start to finish with hand tools and a sawzall with one other person helping out. Install was pretty straight forward, but Dennis' video definitely helped the process along where the install guide was vague.

Hey Steven! Glad to be back! I have a few more things to post up before we are current on my build so far. I'm getting pretty close to pulling the 44's and suspension out though if that gives you any clue

The Toyo's were starting to wear down after a year and a half of solid use, so I started shopping around for tires. Ended up finding the Gladiator X Comp MT from a friend and decided to pull the trigger on 40s. It was actually CHEAPER to buy the 40s than buy the same 37" toyo's again. Got those mounted, and then on a forklift to see where trimming was needed. At 3.5" of lift mind you, there is definitely some trimming needed for new 40s lol

Had another crazy idea for a prerunner style tire carrier. There is no great way to hold a 40, and I didn't want to take up the entire bed with it. The idea was to get this spare as far back and as low as possible to try to keep an even weight distribution.
The Tailgate was just added weight at this point as, its only purpose was to close up the bed. Figured I didnt need it anymore anyways.

I began looking at what JCR offered for DIY parts and decided to challenge myself by only using those parts. I was able to score one of the last Victory 4x4 (JCR sister company) Frame Chop Rear bumpers for a great deal and used that as my base. Then welded on the Mauler DIY hoop and had some tubing bent to go between the rear roll cage section. Some tabs were added as well as gussets to be able to strap it down

Ended up ordering a PRP 3 point harness which looks a ton better. The tire is pretty well secured and I haven't had an issue whatsoever so far. The harness is very well made

You're killin it man...that beast just gets sexier and sexier What gears are you turning those 40's with, how much bump stop did you need?

Have you thought about throwing some 4.5" springs under it? Visually, I think it would add another layer of sickness to the project...just sayin!

So now we are pretty much current with the build status.
The new hood is on, and I am waiting for things to get a little warmer, and then off to paint she goes. I don't want to spoil it too much but it will NOT be red anymore!

This build is about to take another few steps in the right direction, and I will post more frequently on what I decide to do from here!

Still running 5.13s. In Michigan it was fine with all the flat land. Here in the mountains of NC its not desirable lol.
I am running the JKS ACOS PRO coil spacers up front at their lowest level (3/4" to level it out since the conversion took off about 300 lbs and the rear sat MUCH higher) and they include an adjustable air bump. In the rear I adjusted accordingly.

I do plan to run 4.5" RK springs now that they are out though.
I also plan to run a Superduty 60 front, 14 bolt rear, double triangulated rear suspension and 3 link front. I will be keeping coils and long travel shocks for a while until I can afford coilovers at some point

Doing some photochop edits to see where this may end up. If you have a color you think could work pretty well feel free to share!

Try one in matte tan and green. Do the cab as well.

The tan works well! Will you run fenders? That would be a way to bring some black balance to the front? Kinds agree with you on the cab. I think the trick is to balance the amount of black to what ever color you go with.

Just got some fenders in and installed over the weekend.
Angry Beaver Offroad Narrow fenders. Similar material to MCE. These will be smoothed out and painted whatever color the armor ends up. Kinda liking the silver again

I'm pretty happy with them! They also come in a high line. I couldnt make up my mind so I ordered both sets of fronts lol. The hi lines are pretty cool as well but a little too wild for me.

Thanks! I like it.. But it also drives me nuts. I'm a little OCD so having a black hood, black side panels, and different color red on the rocker panels aggravates me when I see it lol. Just want it to look complete like it came from the factory this way.
If all the body panels and hood were one solid color, I wouldnt mind the armor and fenders being black or silver
