Picked up my new JLUR last month and put Nitto Ridge Grappler 37’s with KMC Machete beadlocks on right away.

Had hip replacement surgery a few weeks ago and have been on a parts ordering spree and waiting to recover enough to install everything.

In the garage is:

Metal Cloak 2.5” Game Changer lift
Metal Cloak Rock Sliders and Exo Skins
Metal Cloak front and read diff covers and diff skid

In shipment is:

LOD Destroyer rear bumper with tire carrier and front bumper with bull bar
Rigid flush mounts for the rear bumper
Warn Zeno 10S winch
ARB Dual compressor and under seat mount
Adams extreme 1310 front driveshaft
Redline Tuning hood struts

Time to hide the credit card from myself...

Nice list! Do the JLs require a brake upgrade (calipers, m/c, booster) or did they fix that issue that the JKs had?

The JL Rubicon has dual piston front breaks, which stops my Jeep on 37’s with beadlocks quite nicely. Not sure if the other models have the dual piston.

Took it partway up the mountains today to see how it would handle all those big tires and the 8-speed transmissions handled them no problem with 4.10 gears.

All that will be great Aldo.

BTW - The Yeti steering stuff is actually pretty easy to install yourself. I replaced the tie rod, drag link with attenuators and track bar in my garage. Just watch some of the You Tube videos and a second pair of hands is always helpful.

That will likely be on my list down the road as well along with full belly skids but I had to draw the line somewhere for now :).

Rubicons and Saharas get the same brakes; Sports get “smaller” brakes.
