Next Level '11 KK build

I have never posted in this section before, but I'm pretty active over in the YJ section because of this thing...



Why am I here you ask? Well, my buddy TJ has this 2011 KK that we are building so he can run with me in the big rocks. It is currently built about as much as you can with conventional off the shelf parts. It has some lift and custom bumpers. He has wheeled it a bunch and has ran quite a few black trails at Rausch Creek with it even. He has the mangled skid plates to prove it.

Here is a shot from a Jeep Night at our County Fair that I hosted.



What are we going to do to this thing to make it "next level" as the title indicates? Well we already have a set of 2008 Superduty axles in the shop that TJ has been cleaning up to put under the KK. These will be built with 5.38:1 gears and a Detroit Locker up front and most likely a factory Ford selectable in the rear. It will be 3 or 4 linked on both ends with coil overs. We picked up some 40x13.5-17 Gladiator X Comp MT's for it the other night.



I will post here as much as I can as well as on my YouTube channel.

My YJ build is linked in my signature if anyone wants to check that out.

Thanks for posting. This will be something new for us to view and learn. We see mostly bumpers, small lifts and minor upgrades.

The next video in the series is up on the Youtube. It covers stripping the Dana 60 front axle in preparation for a bunch of goodies from Artec.
