I’m not gunna lie I have El Diablo on order too hahaha #86

Lol - each has a purpose. Buddy has a SXS and I have the Jeep. We end up pre-running in the SXS and using the Jeep as the remote pit when I help with desert races. I was going to pick up a Speed, but wife dislikes SXS after a good friend of hers got hurt. Tried to tell my wife that is the drivers fault, not the cars fault.

Just picked up this hunny last month. The new trans and the interior are light years ahead of my Jk.

I think I’m going to keep the metal bumper group I don’t want to mess with loosing the led fogs or the back up sensors as this thing is loaded and nice.

Already installed lod sliders and a warm Evo winch.

Kmc wheels are in the garage just can’t decide on 37’s or 38’s and waiting on my rock krawler kit.

Man I missed having a jeep and it always blows me away how capable a stock rubicon is.

Awesome! That shell is so cool! Great build. I couldn't imagine buying our new Mojave and changing out the Fox stuff it came with. I have been so pleased with the way it rides. We have done hundreds and hundreds of miles of fast dirt roads and it rides like a Caddy.

Ours looks so weak with only 35s but we are seeing 17mpg!

Congrats on the awesome ride.

My boring one.

I dont think it looks weak at all, Sir. Its exactly how I want to do mine when I grab one.

I've been thinking about switching out to KMC Beadlocks, need a little more width on the wheels

I never had an issue running non beadlocks on my jk and did about everything you could imagine in that rig.

I considered it on the new build but a couple things steered me away. 1st they are a gigantic pita to mount and balance and most shops won't touch them. 2nd was weight they are super heavy.

I never needed to air my Toyos down more than say 12-15 lbs so there was little chance of debeading. If you are running a bfg or something with a squishy sidewall you loose ground clearance going too low anyways.

I'm trying to go lighter on this build.

Ya, I don't need bead locks per se, but I think I am going to at least do a 9.5 or 10" wide wheel. I usually air down to 15 and haven't had a problem, yet.

Takes a lot for me to be impressed but you are killing it on this build. Love the red color choice.

love that blue color. I agree the fox suspension was nice , I just noticed it was a bit soft for me when I had all the gear in it . It would sag a bit. I will say on the 40s tho and kings this thing can take a corner and it doesn’t even feel upset. Also I wish this thing stock got anywhere close to that mpg in town I am averaging 11 ish and I don’t drive like a race car lol

Lifts his JEEP (brick shape) and puts on 40’s and complains about MPGs and, bonus, has an $80,000 😂😂😂 Speed SxS on order

I love the color ! This rubicon is going to be a great build ! Do the 38s lol you have to rehear anyways . As for the bumpers the metal front is nice . Dv8 offroad makes bumpers that accept the rear sensors . I used one on mine. Can wait to see more!
