Joe's 2012 KK Build: (Project snow monster)

Hey guys.... I've been researching mods for my KK for about a year now and I've finally decided on everything I want for it and what I expect this KK to do for me once it is finished... I'd like to share it with all of you!

I had a 99TJ with a plow on it and I decided to sell it and use the money to fund a lift kit, new tires, and a plow for the KK...as well as some other minor mods to compliment the look.

Now the real fun begins.... lift kit starting to trickle in piece by piece in the mail...along with the Curt front mounted tow receiver..... all that is missing is the shocks/struts and I can start the install.

Looks like you're off to a great start. I'm interested to see how it all turns out since you appear to have the same color Liberty that I do. It's killing me that I can't swing the lift just yet!

Haven't seen anyone with a plow on a KK yet.
I'd be more curious to see someone with AtTheHelm's front bumper with the front receiver plus the plow!

Someone on the forums has one.... plus there is a guy locally by me who has one on his KK....

If my front bumper gets trashed as the years go on, I'd certainly consider ATH's front bumper...I've seen the threads on it and I like.

Hey, do you have a build thread or pics of your KK with the econo lift?

EDIT: Nevermind... I just found a pic of yours.... looks sick man... you went with the HD springs and the .500 clevis spacers right? I got that as well... I love the stance!!

Yes to both.

You'll want those rear end links. SS rear brake lines are next for me.

Good luck! Can't wait to see yours!
