8pitchers other jeep build (much slower)

Well I have gotten permission to build up my JKU. Finally. This will not go very fast andy cj will be where more money is going buy anyway at least I can now.

Other pics aren't working on my phone. But so far I've built custom bumpers prolly goin to sell the rear one as it is too small. Goin to build sliders soon. And lookin to piece together a lift.

I'm thinkin a 3.5" lift. But would I have to buy new arms too? Or will the stock ones work until I can buy a new set? If I need a new set mid arms or long? Sorry I'm so used to cj stuff with leaf springs haha.

great build so far, jk arms are pretty long compared to tj and others. you could get away with it at 3.5" but i a good kit should include them anyways. should be fun to see this progress.

Yeah. I love building my own stuff. It's cheaper that way too. Next on the list is to sell my old bumper and build a beefier one with a tire carrier but first will prolly be sliders.
