Thanks, Greg. Collecting build goodies as we speak. Very excited to get this beast out and about!

What’s all the goodies on it now as it sits? Doesn’t seem to be the bone stock Sport edition.January 23, 2018 at 5:27 pm #200070

Pro-Comp 18″ alloy faux-beadlocks
BFG 37/12.5./18 KM2
Fox Nitro external reservoir shocks on all 4 points
Rubicon Express Superflex suspension kit.
That is how it sits. I am getting my Front Runner platform on next week with my Autohome Airtop after that.
Escape Gear seat covers ordered from South Africa yesterday.
I think I am going to replace headlamps with Vision X LED’s
ARB or Pronghorn front winch bumper.
In the meantime, Comms: Kenwood mobile HAM and set up the navigation. Lots’ to do!

Nice platform to start with.
Now you’ll learn the true meaning of Jeep – Just Empty Every Pocket. 😉January 24, 2018 at 8:59 am #200075
LOL! Yeah, I am sure. I have enough accessories from the Disco that will give me a good start on this one without going too broke….
But, yeah, we will see about that 🙂

I met the big Jeep last night.
It’s NICE! 🙂
Big… Very Big.

Dan, I’m thinking that a ladder might be a good call… 🙂

Blanco Grande 🙂
With the Autohome Airtop on top, he’ll need to start paying attention to overpass heights…February 11, 2018 at 5:25 pm #200512February 11, 2018 at 7:13 pm #200515
Good idea on the lightsFebruary 11, 2018 at 8:43 pm #200516
Yeah, I will have two in the back seats too. Can never have enough LED flashlights floating around…

Ya, they’re inexpensive now, and I swear I can put one or two in the Jeep… And the danged thing eats them! 🙂
Four… Four might work…

I like the Pronghorn bumpers. Jeff Sikes used them on his awesome JKU as I recall.
Don’t have them myself, but have serious pronghorn lust, no doubt.
Your Fox shocks should be pretty terrific. That guy knows what he’s doing. I understand that the designer of the Fox shocks recently went to work for Teraflex, and is behind their super-duper (EXPENSIVE) shocks.
Teraflex makes some terrific goodies for the JK/JKU series. Worth checking. I’ve got their springs and diff covers on my Jeep.
