I just bought a brand new 2014 JKU with a 6spd manuel trans. It had 32miles on it and I turned around and put 1400 miles on it to get back to where I work!! She handled like a dream, especially through the icy snowy roads of Yellowstone... (Stayed in 2x4) haha I'm currently planning a JK-8 Truck build with a ton of "River Raider" type qualities! I'm currently saving up for the suspension, wheels and tires cause it looks so wimpy on it's stock basic stuff! Any suggestions as to what the best/showy suspensions are? And any suggestions for 35s that are great on street/dirt/mud/snow/ICE?

There's gonna be a new hood and snorkel and lots of little things that will make all the difference...

Purple u-bolts on the winch bumper, purple halos in the headlights and fog lights, lots of little things that will be purple hence the "Royal"
