I am probably forgetting misc. things and have tools, emergency items and more recovery gear stored under the seats. I am planning on doing several mods over the coming months as funds and time allow, but the family wheels and/or camps almost every weekend over the summer. Every mod and maintenance is done by me. I'm planning to do trans. cooler, axles, driveshafts, ram assist, ball joints, HD tie rod, fabricate some voodoo sliders and axle trusses, etc...

Story: In 2006 I test drove an Unlimited Sport. The dealership didn't have many in stock and wouldn't budge on sticker price. I didn't NEED it, so I decided to wait. In 2008, the '09s were on the lot, carmakers were asking for bailout money and LOTS of 08's were still on the lot. I picked a Rubi from what they had on hand with a 34k sticker, got them down to 28k with rebates and drove it home. I installed some 1" Teraflex front spring spacers and drove it over the winter. In the summer I started building my bumpers, installed a 2.5" lift, some used 37" tires and have been wheeling it while building it a little at a time since...

Story:
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.

Did my own take on the black grill mod, some say “eye shadow,” I prefer “black eyes”

I’m pretty new to the Jeep world. I sold my ’05 Tacoma back in July, and found my Jeep in August. It’s a white ’08 Rubicon, 2-door, 6 speed, located it on Autotrader at a Jeep dealership about an hour away with only 8,600 miles on the odometer. Went to see it and cut them a check that day, how often do you find an ’08 Rubi with that kind of miles? Took it out and wheeled it with a buddy the next weekend, and as you can see from the build sheet I was bit by the bug pretty bad. First thing I did was recovery items, then lifted and put the rims and tires on. Gears and upgraded axles were quick to follow, but I was still dissatisfied with the power so after waffling on the RIPP/Hemi swap idea for a bit, I decided to go with the RIPP supercharger. Cost:benefit for a 5.7 Hemi just seemed to be a bit difficult to justify with basically a new motor in my rig.

Still have a few items on my short list, as snow sets in up here in New England will be doing most of this stuff in the spring: River Raider full skids, flat fenders, upgraded rocker protection, hydro assist steering, some Wood’s driveshafts, dual batteries, aux lighting, OBA, and a custom electrical panel/switches to handle all of the auxiliaries. Also have a couple of “should haves” I intend on taking care of sometime in the next year: swapping rims for some 17” bead locks, lighter tires will stay on 35” though, selling off the PSC bumpers and fabricating some of my own, mostly to recess the winch between the frame rails to give the intercooler and radiator some more breathing room, also some DIY gratification.

STORY

My 1990 YJ was the gateway to my addiction to everything that is Jeep, and the introduction to this wonderful forum that has afforded me the courage to learn to tool on my own vehicle, as well as the opportunity to learn, and meet some great folks in the process. I began my build at my dealership, where I am a sales manager and have access to our service department, and a few of the techs tools. After building past the basic suspension/bumpers phase, I started playing on different trail rides with the guys at Trail Quest. Growing my confidence as a driver, and breaking parts one by one, I moved my build over to Trail Quest Inc, a Jeep specific shop in Central Ohio. Two of my good friends run this shop, and put up with my shenanigans - They live and breathe everything CJ, YJ, TJ, but only had limited experience with the JK before I started showing up, using their tools, and making them conform to the words of the ever-powerful internet Stefan and John have helped me to learn a great deal more as far as tooling goes, and my build continues in the way of their daily business. My wife jokes (I think) that I should pay rent out there, and visit home every now and then for fun Thanks for your participation in my build and helping to keep this great website alive!

Our Story:

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)!

I bought my first Jeep shortly after getting my first job out of college in 2010. I had always wanted a Jeep and finally had the opportunity. Within the first hour of having it I was topless and heading north for camping and had it covered in mud the next day. A couple of months later I put a lift and tires on and that was the best/worst thing I ever did. Now I can’t stop upgrading it and going on any trail rides with some great people I have met along the way.

Mods:

Rock Krawler 3.5" X-factor Mid arm lift

River Raider Off Road Skid plates

RRoR Evap skid,

Rough Country Hybrid Stubby bumper w/ fog lights

MBRP D-ring shackle mounts

Before the Wrangler I had a 2005 Jeep Liberty diesel. The trans went out and My wife and I decided to trade it in on a new wrangler. We decided on the Rubicon. It quickly went from being my wife's daily driver/ commuter to my off road rig. I took it off road completely stock and decided I was going to get a budget boost and call it good. After some research that turned into the Rock Krawler lift. Every time I take the Jeep out I figure out something else to put on it. My wife has been getting a little tired of all the money going into the Jeep so every mod I do has been researched and done to get the Job done in the best and most affordable way. I've done that by making my own CB mounts and such, cutting my stock fenders, and picking up the burnt up XRC8 and spending $50 to rewire it and get it working again. The Jeep is one of my favorite vehicles and I can't wait to see what it looks like in a year or more!

WINNER
of the
June 2012
JK of the Month Contest

For those that don't remember, this is his second win in this contest!
The first was in April of 2011 in a contest that ended in a tie and went into "SUDDEN DEATH"



Currie D60's front & rear, ARBs, 5.38's, JE Reel driveshafts, Rebel Coilover conversion, ViAir Dual 400c compressors, 2 gallon tank in RROR evap/air tank skid, manual switches for ARB lockers, sPod, LoD stubby with stinger front, Smittybilt XRC rear, Trail Mods flares, TeraFlex monster track bars front & rear, Rigid 10" Specter light bar, Superwinch LP8500 w/ synthetic line, Raceline Monster Black beadlocks, Pitbull Rocker 41.5x13.5-17's, AEV snorkel, PSC hydro assist, Poly Performance rear long arms, Clayton front long arms, MBRP exhaust, Currie AntiRock rear swaybar, K&N drop in

Some of you might remember me planning this build last year while I sat in Iraq. It started as a plan to put a D60 in the rear to compliment my front PR44 and run 38's for a while. I would've been just fine with that, but the fact that Goodyear decided not to produce any Kevlars in 38" and the difficulty I was having getting my hydro assist to fit my PR44 (since I wasn't there to get measurements, etc.), I decided to get D60's front and rear and just go big. The whole thing really snowballed on me. I never intended to go this big, but looking back, I'm glad I did. She's a beast, that's for sure.

I got this Jeep 2 years ago... I have wanted a Jeep ever since my mom's best friend pulled up in his CJ7 when I was 8... He recently died unexpectedly and I began modifying anf upgrading the Jeep to do the same things that he told me stories about... This Jeep is a tribute to him. Thank you Mark Holland for the inspiration!
