Project Stout - A Rokmen LCG Build

Built with strength and reliability as the primarily goals Project Stout was inspired by our shop Jeep Niblet. A low center of gravity stance with the highest quality components results in one stout Jeep ready to take on any terrain.

Residing in the Rocky Mountains Stout needs to be able to navigate twisty mountain passes in the dark of night while still being able to conquer the rock trails Colorado is famous for.

ROKMEN tuned suspension featuring Old Man Emu, JKS, Currie, and custom ROKMEN built components supports the Dynatrac Pro Rock 60 rear and 44 front axles. ARB air lockers and RCV front axle shafts make sure Stout can get throgh anything in its path. The AEV Big Brake Kit provides increased stopping power in case a deer decides in prefers asphalt to the rocky mountain hillside.

ROKMEN armor wraps Stout from front to back with Mercenary GT front bumper, rocker protection, corner armor, high clearance underbody skidplates, and a custom rear body mounted tire carrier.

Rigid Industries LED lighting, Walker Evans Beadlock Wheels, ROKMEN aluminum Drop Down Storage Tailgate, and Goodyear Wrangler MTR's...the list goes on and on.

Bada$s rig!! What the lift height and size of those MTR's? Same as Niblet, 2.5" on 37's? Sits perfect and pretty much what I am looking to have my rig looking like once I get the hilines I'm picking up this weekend, so a bit curious!

Love the build!

How much did you stretch the rear? Are you using a Genright or Purejeep stretch tank?

Also love the tire carrier - does that bolt to the tub or weld to the corner armor?

Subscribed! This one is like Niblet only better! I am sure many people would be interested to see more pics and more info on that rear tire carrier as well.

There are a ton of pics on facebook of the completed project.

I also want to know more on the front axle. From what I have read seems like a $5k+ hybrid of a JK 44 but still has TJ outers, knuckles, etc. I realize it has a new cast pumpkin and new tubes but still based on a JK. Does anyone know if that is right? Or does it use the JK knuckles and 32-spline outers and JK u-joints and such? It would be interesting to see exactly the combo of parts on that front axle and the total price and compare to a Rock Jock 60 or something "big".

Hate to bring this back from the dead but...Rokmen do you still build the body mounted tire carrier?

I have the ExoGate and Savvy Rear Aluminum bumper. I'm thinking about getting rid of some over hang and adding a Trail Gate.

Ideally I would like to do your rear bumper, trail gate and that tire carrier.

Tire carrier was one off custom for the build.
