Default 04' Rubicon build

Here is the build up of my 04' Rubicon.

Here is how it started....stock


Then it went to this....3" and 33's



7" of lift and 37" trXus and Walker Evans beadlocks



Killer B just finished the cage. It turned out awesome. Killer B does amazing work


For some reason I needed to upgrade the steering




Put in Hunsaker Synkro seats and 5-point harnesses.
This is how she sat at the OSTC run



Got bored, switched rims/tires. New tires are 36x17x12.5 SX's (Should have gotten the 38's)


Up next........flat fenders/stinger up front, and maybe stretch the rear

That's the first time you've ever had to worry about something "fitting in the garage".

Looks sweet. Can't wait to go off-roading next to the church again.

I like the way you roll

Seriously Dave, it looks great
