Just wanted to start off a build thread for the 2015 JKUR that will be used for Official Wranglerforum product reviews, and if we are lucky a few up coming events.




Over all build plans are to make it able to handle moderate trails but still comfortable for the drive to work.

The post below will have a full listing of what products are on the jeep as well as link to the full review when completed.

Our Forum Supporting Vendors @Rancho and @Quadratec where kind enough to supply some of their products for the build so we hope to have those installed in the coming weeks. Thus be sure to check back and see what has been added.

I like the security of the hardtop, but didn't realize how much I missed the fun of having the sun and wind. Thus as shown in the intro photo above the folks at Black Forest Gear provided one of their Throwback tops. Simple install and have to say breaks up the all whiteness look on the Jeep.

its an awesome lift been on mine for 2 years only issue is the shocks can rust fast and I had to move the break line a little since it was rubbing. But other wise awesome lift for the price cant beat it. (did I mention wish I went higher then 2 inch's) :)

I saw on the 'WF Rancho and Milestar at Windrock' video the you have installed a winch. Is that the Q9500 Winch with Rockhard 4x4 winch mount mentioned above? Did you add an aftermarket front skid?

Yes the Q9500 was transferred over from the XJ.. Used the rockhard mount. No front bumper area skid, but did install a JCR transmission/engine skid. Only concern I have with the rock hard mount is it uses a post to hold it down at the tow hook(kinda hard to explain) and does not allow you to fully put a tow strap on. Strap will work, but have to make sure its on so to speak.
