Stage 1 '08 Rubicon Build

So I've completed stage I of my JK Rubicon build. I wanted to be more capable off road, as well as look sexy around town. First thing I did was install a set of PSC Rock Brawler front and rear bumpers, with a Warn 9.5cti winch up front.

Within a week of putting the bumpers and winch on, I ordered my lift kit, rims and tires. I went with the Rock Krawler 3.5" mid arm flex system, and a set of 35" Nitto Trail Grapplers mounted on XD Monster 18x9" rims.

Stage II is to beef up my front axle with sleeves, gussets, and new shafts. Also installing 4.88 gears. Scheduled to be done first week of November.

Stage III starts this spring, which will include corner and fender armor, fender flares, and a full set of skids.
