My 2011 JKUR has been a work in progress for me. I only get to work on it between deployments so I get alot of time to spend here talking to other members and learning about new mods and products. I wasn't going to enter this year since I have been deployed since I won last year and my last break at home was short but I figured in the holiday spirit I would help fill the field. I haven't gotten to do everything I have wanted to it but then who ever gets to or wants to finish their favorite project? This thing makes me smile everytime I see it or drive it.

And The Winner Is!

You've conquered the pack in the 2013
JK of the Year Contest

ENGINE: 6.4L 500+HP Hemi
AXLES: Front and rear Currie Rock Jock D60 /5.38 gearing, Front ARB locker, Rear is Detroit.
STEERING:PSC Hydro assist
SYSPENSION: EVO Extreme clearance long arm, EVO Front Double Throwdown coilovers and rear (Rear is double throwdown lever setup)

BUMPERS: Front Body Armor bumper (PSC BFH on Order) Rear Body Armor bumper with tire carrier

TIRES: Goodyear 42" MTR/K

Other Randoms upgraded items: Reid racing knuckles, brakes + Brake lines, exhaust, battery, some wiring, massive mods made to fit 42's cutting trimming and such.

Near future Mods: PSC front bumper on order, rock lights, possible change for spare mounting, after I see how the 42's handle in Moab if not happy I might downgrade to 40's, need to get skid plates for oil and tranny pans (Already destroyed oil pan).

Story. I drove from Minnesota out to Idaho to buy this 2010 Rubicon New, it has been a fun and not very cheap hobby. Everytime I find something I want to do or crawl up that I cannot, I decide to make new upgrades. As most Jeeps this is a never ending storie, but one I am enjoying to the fullest. UPDATE: After my 1st trip to Moab, and breaking a drive shaft and rear pinion, it was time to go bigger or go home... So the money and time pit began. I will be heading out to Moab for my 3rd time this coming spring, I cannot wait to check out how it handles the slickrock after my recent round of upgrades.

Story: I purchased this Jeep used on 1/23/2012 and I took it for some stock off-roading with some buddies and I was hooked. I've been dumping as much money into the Jeep as often as possibly to keep raising the capabilities. Within the year (hopefully 2014) I plan to make a trip out to MOAB with my father and we will be towing our rigs down! I update my build thread on this forum step by step as I go and I hope it has inspired some of you just how some of you have inspired me. I appreciate all the continued support throughout my build and I apologize for the lack of off-roading pictures or pictures without all my mods on.

This is Dirty Gerty. She is a 2012 JKU. I purchased her brand new in October of 2011. I started saving up and started building her in April of 2012. Things have slowed with the addition of our little man, but I still drive her daily. I have emptied every pocket, and this is where she is today. Thanks for looking! Cheers!

I am sure I am leaving out some smaller mods and accessories, but here is what I can think of.

The Story

We both were four wheelers and had Jeeps before we met and married, and have had several jeeps together. We are old school wheelers who don’t drink the “bigger is better” Kool- aid; A good driver, a good spotter and a good Jeep can go almost anywhere we want. While most of the parts are bolt on, if you look close, you’ll see some custom fab work. Our mods were meant to be dual purposed, making it capable off road but keeping it stable and comfortable on road.

Background Story
2011 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara
Started life out right away to be built for the 2012 London to Cape Town South Africa World Cup Rally. It has since transformed a few times and now a total transformation from a race proven jeep to a daily driver and often wheeled. Mostly hand built by me and a good friend. We are in the process of building a cantilever for the rear just for old triple bypass shocks from the race.
