Default "Boring to Badass" JK Built in 3 days !!!!

OK, the blue JK is done. Time for something else. We are starting with a 2008 4-door JK Unlimited...bone-stock.

Mods:
  • Edelbrock Supercharged GM LSx 6.2 to over 750 HP (thanks Robbie At MoTech)
  • 6L80 auto transmission
  • 4-speed Atlas transfer case
  • Tom Woods driveshafts
  • Custom exhaust
  • Metalcloak 3.5" lift
  • High-pinion Dana 60s (built here at RockSolid Performance)
  • Yukon 4340 axles, super joints and ring & pinions
  • 37s
  • PSC hydraulic assist steering
  • Metalcloak armor
  • Metalcloak bumpers
  • OffRoad Heros Fastback top
  • Warn Winch

We are starting the build on Mar 23.


We'd like to give special thanks to:
  • Robbie at MoTech, who specializes in GM LS engine swap kits, brackets, etc.
  • Metalcloak for providing...well...a TON of high-quality JK parts for this build.
  • PSC for a blingy hydraulic-assist steering set-up
  • Edelbrock for an incredibly powerful, supercharged engine!
  • John Shoemacher (sp?) for providing specs to recreate this beautiful custom exhaust set-up for a turn-key install.
  • Lane Automotive/Motor State for a variety of small parts

EDIT:
Day 2 of the build is under way! Photos/video to come later this morning...

LSX?

I think you should change the name to "Boring to My House is Cheaper"

That's good to know that you can build a whole JK in 3 days. So you should be able to put some axles in my in about 20 minutes or so? That should be a labor bill I can afford. ;)

Jill had surgery yesterday so I took the rest of the week off to take care of her. If you guys need any help give me a shout and I will see if I can swing down for a bit.
