'14 JKU Rubicon- Copperhead Pearl- Brutus


Second Jeep, first build.
Ordered our '14 JKUR to be my wife's DD in January of '14, it arrived late March.
Over the last year we've added a few mods.


Mopar Stage III lift
Toyo Open Country MT 37x13.5x17
BMF Novakane Death Metal 17x9
Teraflex Slotted big rotor kit
Synergy Ball Joints
Artec front truss, Cs, LCA skids
Revolution 4340 rear axle shafts
Superwinch Tigershark 9500S
Teraflex rear hinged tire carrier
Smittybilt XRC Front & Rear bumpers
Smittybilt rock crawler side armor
Bestop security box
Spiderweb shade
AntennaX
A few LEDs
Trimmed pinch seems
Trimmed factory fenders
Bedlined fender wells

On-deck: 4.88 gears & diff covers to replace factory 4.10s. Have an appointment to get them done in a couple of weeks. It will be the first mod I didn't wrench. It's hard to hand over to someone else...

Here he is new:



Here he is now:











Pretty much done with him, for the time, while the wife is DDing.

This summer/fall I'll start working on junkyard 60s, coilovers, hydro, beadlocks & 42s to be ready for when the Jeep becomes my toy in a couple of years. To make it a full blown Mall Crawling Toy

No problem. Hind sight I would have left some of the support underneath it.
Took several months to get up the guts to cut it, once I did it was no big deal. Kinda like the pinch seams

I'm scared I'm going to mess up. I like the look. Just want to cut the front where the curve starts.

I'd watch a few videos first. It's 2 layers and you'll want to be sure of the inside and plan accordingly.
