After 4 years it is still the "little Jeep that could". It is still only has a Budget Boost and after 80+k miles on it the oil pan is dented, the skids, cross-member and any thing else that hangs low are dented and twisted and have taken numerous hits from the rocks it likes to play on, but it still heads to the off-road park fairly often and regulary wheels with rigs that have more lift and larger tires. Then it returns home and performs it duty as a daily driver without much complaint, the couple months it has also been doing tow vehicle duty hauling our popup camper across PA on numerous trips. This past month I got the new clutch installed and a upgraded to a Heavy Duty Rock Krawler tie rod with Moog rod ends. I also got new set of 33" tires put on and by the time these wear out hopefully I will be able to retire it from daily driver status and give it a makeover to more of a dedicated trail rig.

This is my 08 Rubi Jk, She was purchase this past June with only 11,000 miles on her.(WOW) someone did not use her much. Well after making it home, I found out my jeep now became my wife's and daughters new ride! So in my spare time my wheels started to turn and I came up with a way to keep them out of her for a while. This would be the start of my build.

February of this year I decided I was sick of working on my TJ and I missed wheeling. I parted out the TJ and traded the tow rig Silverado in on a new 2011 JK. I pretty much knew what it would take to get where I wanted to go at my local wheeling spot(Rausch Creek), so I started building immediately using the knowledge I had gained from building and wheeling my past Jeeps.
It sure is!
Is it just me or does Spedly's first picture look like a little toy JK?
That is pretty cool. It's called Tilt- shift photography. You can make anything look like a toy. I first saw this type of photography a couple of years ago and have been playing with it some. I guess that somewhat made my vote decision for me.
