Time for a new build with a new Jeep! As some may know, I bought a 2006 Rubicon LJ the first weekend in 2014. Had to travel to Colorado to get it, but it's well worth it! Came with a ****ty 2" budget boost in the front and a 3-3.5" lift in the rear. So it sits stinkbug style. Has a Rokmen Engine skid, Warn rear tire carrier, and 255/85/16 KM2s. 6spd manual and tons of fun!

And a daylight shot before I drove it back to Flagstaff:
Today I just swapped the winch and stubby over from my other TJ:
The adjustable front tracbar will be swapped too in preparation of some metalcloak 3.5" front coils to level this out.
Should be a fun build! This will be my DD and wheeler since the other 2 jeeps are being sold
I don't really want to give future additions right now since I am new to this LJ still. But definitely 1.25"-1.50" wheel spacers to widen these moabs, Metalcloak coils, 5100s, and probably a 1-1.25" BL for a tummy tuck way down the line
Installed the low pro roller fairlead. Need to adjust it some, but it's much better than that giant roller
Got the poison spyder steering skid in. Waiting for a good time to install that
As for future plans: 3.5" metalcloak coils or 3" savvy coils. 1-1.25" body lift, flat skid, gas tank slid, real slider with step, corner guards, eventually 315s. And steering. Long list of stuff that will take awhile. Main one is paying it off first
Can't go wrong with the 3 inch savvy coils. I was gonna get the MC coils, but didn't want to do a SYE/DS yet. If you do get the coils from savvy, get the shocks that he has tuned for those coils. I believe he's working on a set of foxes and ranchos.
