Trailr8 2006 XK

Hey so here goes nothing my first build thread. It started 5 years ago when a 2006 limited commander came in to the local dealership on lease return that was pretty clean and like 15g less than a new one so I bought it with the intentions of keeping it stock with just a few performance adds. well things took a turn down the wrong road towards not so stock.
here it is the day I bought it

then probably like 2 months after that I had a magnaflow muffler and tip welded on and added the aem cold air intake. after that I added window ventvisors.

Re: Trailr8 2006 XK

Then a friend of mine bought a jk sahara and got wheels and tires so I took his stock 32s on the 18s and ordered a rocky road spacer lift. Then added spidertrax 1.5in wheel spacers so the new wheels would fit. after that I added a rola roof rack and was happy for awhile.

Re: Trailr8 2006 XK

then came a 4in superlift and that lasted for about a moonth before I wanted to go higher but there was no kit to make it higher so I stacked my old 2.25 lift spacers on top of the superlift. Oh and I added 35s at this point too. Went down to the dealer to compare to what I started as too.

Re: Trailr8 2006 XK

lets see next came jba upper control arms to fix the ball joints I was blowing in like 15mins of on road driving. Then I needed shocks so I went to jba and ordered 6in fox remote res shocks for the rear and then eneded up talking to the owner and got a set of front 8in coilovers with fox shocks also. then came small stuff like adding 4 kc lights to the roof rack, and I changed out the low beams and fog lights with 6k HIDs then replaced the fog lights with smoked lens ones. and added a 4xguard front skid plate. sorry for some junk pics from my phone.

Re: Trailr8 2006 XK

at the show I met the guys from rigid industries and they sold me on a 20in single row and 2 srm2s for my roof rack instead of the KCs . So when I got home I mounted up the 20in and made some custom brackets for my windshield/hood area instead of putting all the lights on top. Now I want more lights but It will probably wait till the show again in July to see if I can get a show deal again. but the plan is to add 2 srm2s to each side of the basket and the rear then add a pair of duallys to the bumper
