I doubt this kid even knows how to put it in 4wd. Let alone turn a wrench.

I've followed this build on Youtube and it's pretty nice. I figured there'd be some flaming but eh, I'd drive it.

But I thought you sold this months ago for a 2012?

YOU MEAN THIS THING HAS 4WD?!?!?!!














its fine guys, its okay if youre jealous you cant afford this. i have paid for it all except for $10000 of the original stock price tag and half the price tag for the 37s. I work 12 hour shifts 6pm-6am, 6 days a week at my local hospital as the Xray tech earning $25 an hour. While attending school. THATS how i pay for these mods. and $50,000? i wish. Try $32,000 WITH the price of the Jeep.

Installed all myself. and you guys want off road pictures? alright.

Ludski, you'll learn quick-like that this isn't JK Freaks where everyone has a pony and eats rainbows and poops butterflies and throws a hissy fit when their plastic side step gets a scratch.

What kind of tire shine you use, bro?

Haha it's pretty pathetic how many grown men take time out of their day to flame kids with nice jeeps (sick jeeps in this case). Jealousy isn't a good color on any of ya'll haha.

So the kid has been to insane terrain? I also agree with molshove, where is the build. It's a kid who had a Jeep bought for him. I'm sorry, if I had a JK that was bought for me I could make it like this too.

Edit: missed the part where he said that he paid for all except ten grand. And half the price of 37s. Big man.

I'm not going to hate if it was bought for him, every penny of it, hell I'd be a littl green with envy on that note and high-five the kid. But if you're going to attention whore it up, at least clue us in on the build on little. The journey's half the fun.

well alright then. ill start from the beginning.

i sold my 2006 XK commander that i had lifted (2.75" lift on 265x17x17 super swampers) and did the sound system and LEDs (it was highschool, thats what highschool kids do)


Day i got her from the dealership. (January 3, 2011) traded my old XK commander for her. (will show some pics of my past rides)


265x70x17 super swampers on cragar soft 8s. (take offs from my XK commander)


then grill mod/leveling kit/tinted lights


then came my highschool graduation, and had extra $ laying around. so i bought some things to make the Jeep look better (i chose to make my Jeep look good on road, before off road. deal with it)
smittybilt stinger
coverking seat covers
smittybilt side steps (sold 2 weeks later cause theyre crap)
custom sub box
kicker speakers
powdercoated wheels matte black
hella fog lights
PIAA 540 lights from my old commander
vinyl angry eyes
cb + antenna

the puddlesplasher sticker was made as a joke between some friends and i.





ebay snorkel (AEV takeoff)




then came november 2011.
purchased 4 37" nitto trail grapplers (split it 50/50 w/ dad)
still on the leveling kit
removed rear bumper





cut fenders and added 1.25" body lift



bought used 3.5" skyjacker coils and shocks. new decals. new wheels.

Ditch the red mesh behind the grille... It looks chincy as hell, and burn all of the exterior stickers. It'd look a hell of a lot more badass. Of course that's just my opinion.

added leveling spacers up front to get rid of the rake. then tore the front driveshaft boot while wheeling at the badlands (attica, IN) so drove around for a while with no front driveshaft on till i could afford a tom woods 1310. and then got myself a new front license plate as a birthday present to myself. also put on an MBRP exhaust a while ago.







took off more decals to give a cleaner look


my wheels are hard to find instock. (still havent found one) so i just threw my spare tire in the trunk for a while. also made a homemade drop down tailgate. flipped steering. also got rid of the skyjacker shocks with no fluid in them, and upgraded to some used bilstein 5100 (6" lift shocks)
blew out my ujoints + power steering while stuck in a mud hole (can be seen in upper off road pics). then a minivan hit my jeep while i was in a parking spot, and some how, blew out my brake caliper, how that happened, i have no idea.
