So, thought it was time to start a build thread for my 2006 Unlimited Rubicon that I bought back in October with 40k on it. It was AZ owned with no heavy wheeling apparent. I drove down to Kingman from Vegas to buy it as I was having a hard time finding what I wanted here.
Here's a pic from the day I got it sitting, in my driveway:
It was stock apart from the 265/75/16 AT tires and what looks like a smittybilt lockable steel glove box. It was badly in need of a rotation and had a small oilpan gasket leak. A good friend helped me with the gasket change. We got the rotors turned to solve a little vibration under braking and changed the fluid in both diffs. It's great having friends so knowledgable about Jeeps, I've learned a lot from them regarding maintenance and doing some work myself.
So, the plan? Here's the current parts want list, subject to change of course
Currie JJ Control Arms
TNT Custom Front Tube Fenders w/ 3 Inch Flare
Genright Rear Tube Fenders
ZJ Tie Rod
LOD Offroad Rear Bumper and Tire Carrier
Metal Cloak Front Bumper #211001

Here's how it sits right now:
35x12.5x15 Maxxis Big Horn
Black Rock Wheels 909 Type D
UCF No Body Lift Deep Cover Skid
Midland 1001Z CB
Teraflex Brake Light Antenna mount
