Ok fellow Jeepers, I think I've put together my build list and plan to order from XTRyan soon. Wanted to run it by you and make sure I didn't leave anything out. I'm running a 2015 JKU Sahara and already have 275/70/18 General Grabber AT2s. This is my daily driver and I do very moderate off roading, mostly forest trails and right of ways. Not opposed to trying more difficult rides.

Thanks for any feedback or encouragement!

-Joe

Sounds like a great plan!

Only consideration, for me personally, would be the shock extensions as opposed to new shocks altogether. There are many choices for better riding shocks than stock.

If price is the issue (and I KNOW how fast mod money goes), you should think about skipping the extenders and buying some Rancho shocks in March. That's when they have their March Madness sale, which typically offers a buy three, get one free deal.

Good luck! :thumb:

I was thinking that I can add some Rancho 9000xl shocks later on when money allows. Until then I will need the adapters correct? I thought I would have to wait until Shocktober for deals, thanks for the heads up!

Don't forget the free recovery jack
10-4. I figured between the forum discount, free high lift, and rugged ridge rebates right now I'll be saving $250 plus get the jack I could sell since I already have one.

Yes, you will need the adapters until then.

Rancho has been quiet lately, out at KOH. Hopefully when he gets back he will drop some hints about March Madness so you can make solid plans. :)

I had that bumper on my last Jeep, its a good one. I'd like to run those forest trails and right of ways down your way myself! My wife's family has camp at Alderson.
Just hit me up whenever you wanna ride down this way! I'm actually headed past you in a couple weeks for my birthday trip to the casino. Gonna try to flip my state return into Jeep mods!

Thanks. :)

Where is Greenbrier? I have family in Fairmont and Morgantown. Beautiful country up there, but I guess that's why they call it West By God Virginia! :D

Greenbrier is down in the southeast part of the state against the Virginia border. Local spots to look for are Snowshoe Mountain and the Greenbrier Resort where I work. We are also the newest jeep jamboree on the circuit, I think. I'm about two and a half hours from Fairmont.

AEV makes a set of geometry correction brackets that we've helped guys install with their lifts out in the shop. They seem like nice brackets. P

There may be a couple of other manufacturers, but I can't remember who. Sorry!
