Hi fellow JK'ers I will be using this thread to document my build.

Good luck with your build, I just installed my LOD sliders, they forgot to ship the bolts, I'll be calling them tomorrow to bitch

I would be too 6 week lead time and on the upper end for price you would think they could get the order packed correctly :rolleyes:

Hi, my interest is in a DD that I will use for overlanding / expedition journeys. Just posting here to subscribe - love your Jeep, keep the pics coming.

Oh, by the way, does your Jeep have a name?

North Metro. Ya climbing in MN is a bit limited for sure. I do mostly expedition type climbing Mt Rainier, Denali, CO 14ers, and this summer I'm climbing Kilimanjaro. Lucky for me I can work from anywhere so I spend a fair amount of time in Colorado.

No name yet. Up next electronics probably late next week. Dynomat and polyfil the enclosures, install Kicker speakers, CB, and the sPOD. Then the Dually's but I need to paint the pillar brackets when they come in and I will also need to fab a rear light bracket. I will take some pics for sure

Nice-I've hit grand Teton and spent 3 summers in the Yalley and Moab/Red Rocks. Would love to hit the flat irons this summer ;)

AEV JK 2" Apacer Suspension System I think this will suit my needs. Although I wish they would have had their 2 1/2" system out before I bought this one so I could have compared them
I'm curious to see how that is. I didn't want to do spacers with the stock Sahara suspension so I'm trying to hold out on the 2.5" kit.
