Project Details

This Rubicon is built to go anywhere! And that’s exactly what the owner intends to do with it. One of John’s first big trips with this will be out to Moab, Utah to ride some iconic red rock trails.

Rolling on 38×12.50 Nitto Ridge Grappler tires mounted to Method 701 Bead Grip wheels, he will have no problem climbing steep ledges and large rocks.  Re-geared to 5.13 with Revolution Gear & Axle ring & pinions means he has plenty of torque down low, and power at highway speeds.  The RCV axle shafts we installed up front give John the peace of mind that he’ll never have to trail repair an axle U-Joint from the stress of turning those tall tires.

Soaking up the bumps and articulating like no other short arm kit on the market, we have a Metalcloak 3.5″ GameChanger suspension kit.  Keeping the front tires pointed in the right direction is the Steer Smarts YETI XD tie rod and drag link.  Rounding out the build, we added a beefy rear bumper from LOD, with a hinged bumper mounted spare tire carrier and rear view camera.

Just picked our Jeep JLUR up from Mt. Zion and all I can say is WOW! So far it's only been road driving but this thing is AMAZING and their customer service here is beyond expectations. At least once a day during the build I was getting text and photo updates on every step of the build. I live 2.5hrs from their garage but will absolutely drive past my local shops to get all my work done by these guys. Outstanding experience all around!
