.06 Rubicon Build.

Hey everyone!

My name is Justin. This is going to be my build thread for the 2006 Jeep Rubicon I have recently purchased. My plans for the Jeep are never ending.
But they will start with a 6" rough country long arm (witch should arrive this week) 315/75R17 goodyear wrangler MT/R with Kevlar Tires, 17" Procomp rock crawler rims. I have built a rear bumper and tire carrier for it. I am almost finished building the front bumper. I plan on building rock sliders, skid plates, tube doors and a few other things for it also. I also plan on flat flares, winch, rhino liner interior, full custom build roll cage and more.

Here are some pictures when I first got it.







Some more recent pictures.







Here's the bumper I built getting painted.

Here are the light mounts I build for my Hellas.



This is what I have done on my front bumper so far.



Tires and rims.

Can you measure those tires for me? Tirerack seems to lie of the size with air in it on 8 inch wide rims.
Bumpers look really good. Really like the tire carrier.

Loved the Rubi on the Moabs. I would have just put some underarmor on it and left it alone. But, I already have a big Jeep.

Can't wait to see the finished product.

Lift is finally done!
After many late nights it is done and I love it. It is an awesome kit, very smooth install, no problems.
Now I cant wait till Sunday to take it for it's first test on the trails.
I still have a few things to work out tho.

Here are some pictures. I have lots of pictures from the install, if anyone wants to see pictures of anything just let me know.





I took the time to paint my axles and also painted my frame.

The tires measure just under 35" on my jeep.
