Our 4th JK is a 2018 JK Sport S in GOBI ordered on August 9th, 2017 and delivered on October 20th, 2017 with the Power Convenience Group, Connectivity Group, Auto Trans, Hard Top and LEDs. My wife has named him Wookiee.

This Jeep will serve as my wife’s DD and our overlanding vehicle. Since many sanctioned rides have a maximum 37” tire rule, this build is focused on achieving a strong, yet good driving build for 37s.

Getting closer, still waiting on a few parts but there's a little getting done. Wheels are powder coated and at the tire shop getting tread. Rock rails and bumper are installed.

So here's her new Jeep stock:



And pictures of the little bit-o-work going on so far.

Update please! Anxious to see how it turns out!
Thanks!
Ordering the last of the parts on Friday when I can talk talk to someone at Northridge 4X4 about Adam's drive shafts. So I'm guessing 2 weeks (ish) and we'll start the bulk of the build.

Last night I had to lean the tires/wheels up against and get an idea of how it would look . :lol:

So we mostly finished up this portion of the wife's new Jeep build. Here's a few pics from the install:

Pulled in to my buddy's shop




The wife was the first to jump in and start stripping the Jeep



Front/rear axles are stripped


Rear Teraflex CRD60 going in




Little cutting/grinding to make clearance for the Falcon shocks







Front Tera44 going in




Alpine CT3 lift




Steersmarts Tie rod, drag link and track bar




Poison Spyder fenders




Adam's drive shafts




And buttoned up (mostly)














Just ignore the pink beast on 42s, it makes every Jeep seem small LOL


That's it for now. I'll post up again as we test everything out.
