Are you testing it to get it legalised on QLD roads or just to try out the kit?

A bit of an update as I have now sold the Red beast and bought a white CRD Unlimited auto.

No real mods apart from MOPAR black rims and MOPAR snorkel which is yet to be fitted.

Default JTO's new Build

Hi JTO
Be interested to see how you build your JK this time around as apposed to last, now that you have all the knowledge and experience of the mistakes, or the trials and tribulations of the last build, what worked, what did not etc. there is also a lot more gear, information and options availalable now than there was when you originally did yours ( or I did mine). And you also have a better understanding of how you use it now.
If i had my time again, i would start with what I have now ended with, ( maybe a couple of small changes) would have saved a heap of money and time, and would have been a happier camper for a lot longer.
Good luck and keep us informed.
Tom

This time around it will be stick at the 2" lift, might go back to the EFS one again as it served me very well and suited what I wanted. Front and rear bars I am not sure as i always liked the MOPAR ones and how light they were and I never drove hard enough to warrant the heavier bars. 9000lb winch, disconnects, 33" tyres and some bump stops will be all I go for I think.

Not very exciting but its going to be more a weekend warrior and camper trailer puller

Nice rims, do you know just which ones they are?

I like the t-shirt too!

Jeeptheone maybe able to correct me if I am wrong. The rims are a MOPAR option which I believe are re-badged AEV Savegres. Very nice.

Yes, they do look like those. But how can the dealer fit them? I thought from the specs that they would not be legal? (Make the track too wide.)
