Beast 2 build - 13 JKUR

We just got a 2013 JK Unlimited Rubi.



I didn't document the build and multiple transformation of the Filthy-Beast so thought I would start with this one. The filthy Beast is shown below.

3.5" is a lot of lift for 35s on a JK. Unless that is you plan to go up in size?

Ace rock rails (on order)

Check out nemesis or teraflex. Aluminum is

Ace rear tire carrier bumper (on order)

I have never seen this but heard good things about ace.

River Raider skids, oil pan, trans, transfer case, gas. (on order)

Don't forget about that evap canister. Not sure if this comes with this kit, I'd hope so.

Poison Spyder Rock Brawler lite bumper, with lower skid and winch mount.

Forget PS. Honestly they have lost a lot of quality since the new owners took over, buddy had the rear tire carrier and the welds rusted through. Look at RC's hybrid bumper. I run it, it's light and sweet plus incorporates fog pods. As for a skid look at expedition one's rubi skid.

Poison Spyder Crusher front and rear flares.

See above.

Poison Spyder Bombshell D44 covers.

Goodyear MTR/K, still haven't decided between 35 or 37 inch.

Looks good to me.

Superwinch Talon 12.5i SR

Personal preference but I like it.

Front DS

Artec trusses and gussets

Gears

What size? If you have the 4.10s factory then there isn't a need to regear with 35s

Chromalloy shafts

Mount CB and HAM radios

Of course!

Oh and dibs on the Rubi wheels if you ever upgrade!

Changed it a year ago, went with the name we gave the LJ "Filthy Beast" and my ham license, W4TFB, Whiskey-4-The-Filthy-Beast.

I haven't gotten out for 6mths, been to busy with work and family stuff, looking forward to getting back into wheeling. How about you?

I was interested in aluminum armor but everybody that sells it puts a big note, can not take the same abuse as steel.

Freudian slip on the lift order, the original plan was 2.5" version, but I ordered the 3.5. Crazy flex both up and down with this lift. I want 37s but it will be hard to fund everything needed to run them correctly.

Before buying the tires I was thinking of using adapters and putting the
DC2 wheels with 35" MTRs from the Beast on it for a week to see what it looks like. I still have to figure-out if 15" DC2s will clear the calipers on the JK.

Wife really likes that PSC bumper, I'll check-out the other stuff, I didn't realize they changed owners.

I'll also checkout Spyder6's build, thanks for the heads-up.

I would still powder coat them black (wheels).

Yeah she is. She wants to do the Jeepers Jamboree on the Rubicon trail this August. So the trick will be to built this up enough to handle the trip and still have funds for the trip.

We also got a silver 2012 JK to go with the 2013 JK this Christmas.


It flexes pretty good and even has Poison Spyder bumpers.

Congrats! Looks like you have a nice build going on here. I'll be keeping my eye on this one. I too am building up a 2013, but I opted for the sport to build the way I wanted. I love the black Rubicon...That is one fine Beast and I can't wait to see it grow up. Good Luck!

Thanks, I really like the look of yours. I started out looking for gecko but all they had in stock within a hundred miles of Chicago was one gecko green rubi with matching painted top and fenders it was just too much.

Completely understand and agree. I believe they look so much better with the contrast of Black.

I'll probably see you out there for that one. Either that or Moab. I work for the NPS during the summer about 3 hours from Moab in the heart of the San Juan Range.

Read your reasoning and hey looks good to me.

Oh and I honestly have had very little time to head out and wheel at all and money due to we'll say, ahem, a certain high official. But I know when I go back west during the summer it's easy to play because I'm surrounded by trails.

So jealous! I'd be there almost every weekend, with so many trails it will be hard to get bored.
