2004 Rubicon build a.k.a. "Yellow River"

It's high time I post my Jeep build on here.

My baby is a 2004 Rubicon SWB 5-spd called "Yellow River."

I've had her for a little over a year but a week or so after I purchased her I installed a 4" lift with 33" General AT2s and the build expanded from there.

Recently I traded a Yeti cooler for the MOPAR Rock Crawler front bumper and will be purchased the MOPAR Rock Crawler rear bumper and will be doing a DIY Highline fender kit this winter much like the AEV highline kit (wish this was still available to purchase) and down grading to a 2" Old Man Emu suspension lift for lower COG.

Yellow River build list:

+4" RCD Suspension (control arms, coils, Bilstein 5100s)
+OME Steering Stabilizer
+Rubicon Express front track bar
+Cragar Soft 8 16" wheels
+Tom Wood's rear Double Cardan Driveshaft
+Currie adjustable upper rear control arms
+Bedlined interior
+Smoked corner markers
+LED interior & exterior upgrade
+Nth Degree Lightning Rod quick disconnects
+new LUK clutch, throwout bearing, needle bearing
+Uniden CB
+Mopar Rock Crawler front and rear bumpers
+Viair 88p onboard air compressor with dedicated internal switch
+Curt hitch

Future build list:

+DIY Highline fenders
+2" OME suspension
+AEV Highline Heat Reduction Hood
+Nth Degree Skid Plating
+DIY under rear seat amp and subwoofer
+Winch
+LED Fog lights

...and the build continues...

These bumpers are designed by AEV and manufactured by MOPAR. You should be able to purchase these, but they are very expensive and hard to find used.

I was fortunate to get these used, had them blasted for $85.

Yes the second bumper is a rear. My goal is to have my Jeep looking like this white one by spring.
