To celebrate an empty nest and 25 years of marriage we decided to gift ourselves with a new 2011 JK. We both had jeeps before we married, had jeeps together, and then went Jeepless for a few years to raise kids. We wanted a Rubicon and loved the stealth markings of the COD. Our mods were meant to be dual purposed, making it capable off road but keeping it stable and comfortable on road. We can’t claim to be the most active and productive contributors to the Jeep Forum (haven’t taken the time to document mods)… but we CAN claim to passing on the love of Jeeps and Four Wheeling to the next generation; 3 of our kids now own Jeeps (1 GC, 2 Rubis)!
Mods: 2.5" Teraflex lift, spidertrax wheel spacers, front axle sleeve/gusset, 5.13 gears, JcrOffroad engine evap skid and tranny skid, JcrOffroad front bumper rock sliders, Superwinch lp8500 winch, S-Pod, Duratrac 315/70/17 tires
The last picture is before sliders but I feel it's the best picture of my jeep as a whole!
Story: I bought my JK after my first 'real' pay check at my first 'real' job... drove 500 miles to pick up the only Rescue Green X that I could find. At 12,000 miles I could not stand the dinky 29" tires and crappy wheels any more, so I installed my RC Budget Boost and 35" KM2's.
That was 3 years ago. Now I live in Colorado and wheel the heck out of it whenever I get a chance.
Future plans include axle upgades, new suspension, 40's and plenty of armor...
I almost forgot, well not almost I did forget to mention Crawling this thread!
If we all "Crawl" then it will show up on the Home Page as a top-5 thread. This is a good thing because it brings more users and voters to our contest!
It would be nice to see as much activity in this thread as there was in last months thread.
Is that asking too much?
I don't think so!
