Saw this rig on the street. Went a little nutty with the light bars, but all in all I dig the setup.

Re: My 2012 Black 2dr Rubi Build!!!

That's when you go backup cam!!! That slant piece is an option for that carrier. You need the right top like the wild boar or a jk8. They are neat!!

Re: My 2012 Black 2dr Rubi Build!!!

While Im waiting for the stuff to get powder coated i drew this up to finish off the back. My buddy has a plasma cutter and is going to cut it up for me out of some 3/16 plate he has. Not sure about the holes though i just threw them in! Ill decide on them later.

Yea, not sure about the holes either. That is, unless you plan on throwing some additional light back there, those holes seem a little useless. IMHO of course.

The lightening holes would look great if dimpled.

Re: My 2012 Black 2dr Rubi Build!!!

Everything landed back from the powder coater the next day!!! He did it Sunday night!!
Ok so heres where I'm at:

Front bumper went smooth, no problems except I had to grind a bit more on my end. Love it! The skid came with the disco relocator kit. Nice!




Rear corners were a bit of a pain but worth it!! Heavy duty!!
Gotta love the stuff made right here in the USA!!!





Next the gate was cut by my welder buddy Brian who did my rollbar.Gotta love the plasma cutter! At first I was going to roll the ends to the curve of the old gate but this crap wasnt to flexy!! So I cut a few inches off the top and sent out for powder coat! Till next week!!

Re: My 2012 Black 2dr Rubi Build!!!

Gate is on but im not too sure about it. Im going to cut a little more off the angles to show a little more tire. I also ordered more bolts for the gate from River Raider to match the corners.

Re: My 2012 Black 2dr Rubi Build!!!

I like the gate how it is. Shows enough of the tire with still covering it up a little. Or you could open it up a little more and add some netting to the back?

Found this site where the guy is doing something similar although not as clean
