Favorite aspect of the jeep is the places it takes me to and the good times with friends. Camping gear stays loaded in the back as it is used often. The jeep can crawl on rocks all weekend, then hit the highways home with out issues. Some of the modifications include:

Started out with the "WF Most Popular Lift" then changed the springs to 2.5" Metacloak
Rancho adjustable shocks
SwayLoc swaybar disconnect
Bushwacker fenders
4:88 gears
Ten Factory chromoly axles
Level 8 Punch wheels
37" Patagonia tires
9500lb Smittybuilt winch
Bartact seat covers
Kenwood head unit with front & rear cameras
Jeep Backbone deck cover
Uniden CB
Bestop soft top
KC off road lights

For your consideration! I have a 2007 JK. In the 8 years I’ve had it, I’ve added the following:
Rock Krawler 3.5 X-Factor with Bilstein shocks
37” Nitto Trail Grapplers
17” Spyderlock Beadlocks
Powerstop drilled and slotted rotors front and rear with Hawk pads
Rubi front 44, sleeved, trussed, and gusseted with RCV shafts and factory locker
Rubi rear 44 with 35 spline chromoly shafts and ARB locker
Tatton front and rear 1310 driveshafts
Red-neck Ram Hydro-assist steering setup with PSC pump and reservoir
12” Derale inline cooler
ARB dual compressor mounted under the hood
Poison Spyder front Brawler bumper w/ X-Vision LED foglights and Warn Zeon 10S winch
AEV rear bumper with AEV tire carrier with optional water tank and AEV 10 gallon aux. fuel tank
JCR Stage 2 Rock Rails with tube step
Rock Hard 4X4 full skids and transmission crossmember package
B&M 46200 manual shifter
SPOD 6 switch with Aeroforce gauge
Pioneer AVH-2550NEX radio
Full Kicker speaker upgrade with 8” Kicker Solobaric sub and compact box
Cobra CB
Trek Armor seat covers
Nemesis Notorious front and rear fenders with skeletos upgrade
Ace Engineering front and rear inner fenders

It’s hard to pick a favorite memory in it, as we’ve made so many between Hidden Falls, PINS, Katemcy, Bridgeport, and all of the overlanding in between. We are really looking forward to our trip to Moab in it this September. We’re also going to hit Black Bear Pass, Imogene Pass, and Merus on the way back. That trip is shaping up to be the best yet!

What is not to like, it goes everywhere and pretty much does anything I want it to. The best aspect is when taking a trip we set the nav to shortest route possible, no interstates and dirt roads are okay. We have seen some very nice country this way and you would not believe the number of dirt roads that are in this country.

And honestly, either can I!

14 bolt rear/10 bolt front both from an 85 K20

The last photo is most recent. Easter Sunday I went for a short trail ride with my Father-in-law and Brother-in-law. Hit a couple good mud holes and some difficult ditch crossings. Poor thing lost a radiator hose from all the thrashing. All of us wearing nice clothes, me without any tools, not even a leatherman. I had to improvise and fast, because dinner was about ready and worse, my wife’s wrath was imminent. I used a coin to loosen and reattach the hose clamp. A scavenged beer bottle became the vessel of choice for refilling the radiator. About 50 bottles of swamp water later we were back in action! We even made it back with time to spare!

Just bought a week ago - only thing I have done so far is fix the locking back window
Bumpers replaced, hard top added and doors changed to full from half size by previous owner.
Plan to get a fabric top (similar to a Bikini Top) for the coming summer

Otherwise this thing is bone stock.

I absolutely am so glad I joined the Jeep crowd. I have gotten 4 BOH trails done and have two more planned for this summer in AZ. I am very new to off roading so I learn and break a lot when I'm off roading. Now with the new build I think my Rubicon will be much better prepared for the off road adventures. My favorite memory or I should say most memorable one is being stuck in the "quick sand" of Florida waiting hours for someone to drive bye. Live and learn and looking forward to the AZ trip this year.

Teraflex 3" Sport Lift
Teraflex Alpha Tire carrier

Wow! That's brand loyalty. lol I had a 2016 JKU-S & traded up to a 2020 JLU-R. Seems like wranglers are the only vehicles I have any interest in at all now. Great 4x4 & by looking around here more than you & I think the same way. I've never seen so many Wranglers on the road until the last few years. My aim's to put 37's on it. Any chance you know if the Metal Cloak 3.5 inch Game Changer suspension kit is any good? Do they make anything that I should stay away from?
Thanks
Hardi
