Wk2project.com 2015 Off-road lifted Overland build thread

Well....Cats outta the bag. So I guess Ill start my build thread.

And Skunkd, I only used the title to get more hits because of those that search for your bad ass Altitude. I love what you've done with it, I just went the opposite direction..this time.

I understand many dont believe the 20" thing for a vehicle that gets used ALOT offroad, but mine does. I had no intention of using a crazy offset and big mud tires that required rolling, pinching, cutting etc. Mine all works, no rubs and no mods needed to fenderwell. Tested with turning and compression on all 4 corners to ensure everything would play nice once I took it back to the Trails...and it does. The 2013 SEMA build that gets talked about around here caught a lot of slack. It was also never meant to go play. Mine is.

2015 4x4 Altitude, Bright white with 9 speaker sound and tow pkg.
So far, the build consists of:
Rocky Road Outfitters 2.5" lift
TSW ( Black Rhino ) 20x8.5 +30 Matte Black Mozambique Rotary forged wheels
Atturo Trailblade XT Tires 33x12.5-20
Magnaflow #19216 black catback.
Airaid intake
Bolt lock receiver lock
EAwraps.com vinyl wrapping
Curt cargo rack
Yakima Whispbars
Allen Sports Hitch mounted bike carrier
Mopar Skids

Unfinished, but coming soon:
Steel Armadillo custom Skid plates
Custom Rock Rails
Chief Products Nudge bar
Bilstein 5100s (in my possesion but not yet done)
Gobi ladder

As time allows, visit Home I hope to get some work done on the site soon, but for now the reviews have started and the links to products are up.

Heres my baby....

Are the hood, grill and roof wrapped? That's exactly what I have planned for my hood too, but was debating vinyl or paint. Probably go with an srt hood too.

Ha!
I'll have more black trim. You've got most of yours done. I'm doing bits here and there.

Re: Alludc's ... "less stinky than Skunkd's" Altitude build

Well Damn. I thought I could go back and edit posts 2 and 3 later. Oops.

Anyway, my point for the build (as most of mine are) is to be unique...but still functional. I live in AZ. Sandy desert, rocky trails, red rock mountains, snow just a couple hours and 7000 feet of elevation away...all in abundance. I USE THIS. I take it off-road at any given opportunity. Runnin with the Wranglers, or out with the 4runners and FJs. Doesnt matter to me.

I know some will say...wtf. Why an Altitude for off-road?!? You dont even have the good 4wd system or a Hemi. I say why not. I love the look of the Altitude, and the interior is by far my favorite...and thats where you spend most of your time. My Hemi 12 (altitude wannabe) was loaded to the gills including Quadra-trac II. Other than just to twist the dial just to do it, I never had to adjust it to anything but auto in my adventures. It was always plenty capable, as is this new one. I do go out and play, but I dont do anything crazy enough that would require more than a simple 4wd system, ground clearance, and good driving choices.

Best part of my build so far has been the addition of the 33s. Getting that additional ground clearance was key. Its generous from the factory (at its lowest point of lower control arms) of around 8.4-8.5". As measured right now im at 10". Some of my favorite places to go required a bit extra, this gives me that. For example " the stairs " at Broken Arrow in Sedona AZ. Not necessary, but always good to have extra up there.

Anyway, will discuss my Mod choices and reviews in a later thread.

Nice ride, digging the color combo.
I am in AZ and just got a 12 overland. I have never driven off road and would like to take it out.

Get out there and enjoy it! Lots of great, easy places to start. 4peaks, some of butcher jones/Saguaro Lake coves, Boulders, etc etc.
