It's been a long time coming but I finally have my JKU. I ordered it Memorial day weekend and picked it up on July 3rd. I had to order it to get what I wanted. I wanted a base model sport, soft top, half doors, max tow package (includes 3.73 gears) and trac-loc rear. The color wasn't very important to me but I liked Rhino so that's what I ordered.

I got what I wanted :iamhappy:




I have already added a set of Rubicon rock rails that I picked up from Craigslist. My Mopar 2" lift will be here next week.

I need to figure out what wheels and tires I want. Trying to decide between 33" and 35". Going to need a better tire carrier too.

All this while trying to keep the cost as low as possible without buying crappy parts.

I ended up ordering 17"x9" Pro Comp wheels and Mastercraft MXT 295/70/17 tires. The tires are in the garage and the wheels will be here by Monday.

I don't think I'm going to transfer the TPMS to the new wheels since the Flashcal currently only allows for TPMS on/off.

Hopefully I'll have the time to install everything soon.

I mounted the new wheels and tires and installed the lift with some help from by brother. I still need align it and balance the wheels. My balancer isn't big enough for the 33" tires so I will take them somewhere to have it done.
