My wife and I have been on jeep forum for a while. I have a thread of my own for my 99 jeep wj, so I thought we'd create her a build page for her jk. It's a 2008 Jeep Wrangler unlimited rubicon. Bought this gem in December of 2014. Since then, my wife and I haven't done too much.
This picture above is the day we had it detailed, because when we bought it, it was pouring snow! I couldn't imagine the perfect time to buy a jeep .
Anyway, on to the rest! After buying it we drove it like any other jeep person would😀😀 until I was driving home from work one day in it because my xj broke down a couple days before. A buddy of mine noticed my wheel was wobbling really bad. So I got home and jacked it up. Didn't see any playing in the wheel bearing. Took it to a great guy we know in the Colorado Springs area. He took a look and said the axle shaft had WAY too much play. Instead of thinking bad my wife and I thought "yes, a place to start out build"! We then ordered g2 axle shafts to replace the stock ones with. However, wait there was more. Our axle shifted 2' to the right due to no track bar bracket on the lift that was already installed when we purchased it. So, like any good jeep owner we bought a adjustable super lift track bar for the rear and front. Time went on and we were in the summer season. My wife and I wanted to take the top off the jeep. She can't due it very often due to a case of scoliosis. I still need to figure a way to take the top on and off, being that we live in a rental home on a military installation. Anyway, here's a picture of first prying the top off
Looks great right? After driving around for a while we noticed our son becoming hot and overwhelmed and thought to our selves he can't be enjoying the summer heat beating down on him. We googled some places in the springs that sold jeep parts. We were semi new to the area at the time. FN jeep came across our eyes, so we went to check it out. It was a jeep junk yard heaven! We found a smittybilt bikini top so our son could enjoy the jeep as much as we do! Anyway, I don't want to drag this out too long as I already know I've done! Lol we have a stack of jeep parts sitting in our kitchen right now waiting to be on. So, instead of telling you the story on how we got them I'll wait to put them on, then take pictures and let you know how they went.
