2013 True Blue JKUR build (Project Blueberry)

OK so it is time to start a new build thread now that I have some parts on the way and the build is actually starting. so I special ordered this Jeep after selling my HEMI TJ at the end of last yr. this is my first JK so there defiantly is some more learning to do as I have built several YJ's and TJ's.

The Jeep is a loaded JKUR the only options I opted out for is the dual top and painted flairs and top. I ordered it with the factory 4.10 as I knew it was going to get lifted and run 35"

here is the build plan for now.

AEV 3.5" sc lift. (on order w/ for delivery)
MC control arms
Silver Pintlers with 35"KM2's (waiting on lift to install)
AEV hoop less front bumper (just to be a little different)
Zeon winch and some sort of 20" LED light bar on bumper.
AEV skid (on order w/ for delivery)
Mopar mw3 rock rails (need to install)
AEV heat reduction Hood
AEV corner Guards
AEV rear bumper with out tire carrier (on order w/ for delivery)
TF tire carrier and acc. mount (waiting on lift to install)
AEV chmsl 3rd brake light.
Spod
Diablo Trinity (waiting on 2013 update)
Possible supper charger down the road when available.

here are a few pics of where I am at now.

Rear bumper and TF tire carrier are one. Now I need to find some time to tackle the lift.

Does the tire carrier attach only to the tailgate or does it swing off the rear bumper? Curious, since I've never seen that particular unit. Looks good though!
