RubiX the Mama's JK build thread

Well thought I would start this up. It should have plenty of updates and progress should come fairly quick. First off its a 2014 Rubicon Unlimited X package. I think its as fully loaded as you can get one.


First mod was Tint. The wife always rolls with 5% all the way around. So with the black exterior and the black interior its dark but nice.



Also got the dome lights swapped out for LED's. Anybody got any part numbers for the map lights in the mirror?


Ok so whats on its way is the Bumpers front and rear. Went with Poison Sypder Brawler II Mid with the skid plate. For the rear we went with the Brawler II with tire carrier. Gonna have them texture powder coated.

Also in the mail is HID's and LEDs to swap out all the lights.

Wednesday next week she is getting head rest monitors that double as android tablets, a back up cam and the Nav TV module. It will be getting the lift as soon as the wife can decide on the wheels. Looking at the Moto Metal 961, black with red inserts. Once the 35's are on I will swap out the fenders for either poison spyder ones or the genright. Leaning toward the genright

Lead, follow or get out of the way.

The Rubicon X has the 10yr anniversary edition bumpers, hood, and rocksliders but its a 2014. At least that is what I was told at the dealership and what is says on the window sticker. Also comes with the regular black leather seats instead of the red, which is fine by me.

More props to ya if you can afford it, but why did you buy the X package if you plan on selling all the X specific parts?

I am guessing the top won't be coming off of this one. I can't tell you how many black JKU's with tinted windows I've seen rolling around that never have the top off or windows down or anything.

Well I'm not selling off all the x specific parts. I am keeping the one that drew me to it the most. The top will be coming off, not sure what the tint has to do with that. It's tinted dark cause my wife has very sensitive eyes and she doesn't like people seeing into her vehicle when it's just her and the kids. The reason I got it was because the wife wanted and it was the spec interior she wanted. But is gonna be a tricked out mommamobile and fun to take off road.

That's a cool Jeep.

Does it have a D44 front axle, lockers, and Rubicon transfer case in it??

I answered my own question...

Looking good! It will look ten times better with the flat fenders, tires+wheels and mild lift. Check out our up and coming 1.5" systems if you want to stay low, have a great ride, tight handling and tons of travel!

k well my wait is over. Here is the Wife's ride lifted 3" with the Mopar stage III, Fox remote Res, terraflex speed bumps, Fuel 20x10 Full blown, Nitto Trail grapplers 37x 12.5 20 and some PSC stuff too. Thanks to Xtreme Outfitters in Kerrville Tx for the job well done.
Sorry crappy cell phone pics and crap weather.





Its running the stock 4.10's for the next little while to see if the wife's wants them swapped. I drove it back to San Antonio from Kerrville (texas hill country) with no issue. I will be doing dyno pulls with the JK stock with 37's, then with CAI, then with CAI, new muffler and Diablo tuner on 93 oct tune. Let the begin LOL OH no its got 20's

Personally, I think it looks great. I like the look of 37's on 20's. Only about 1/2" difference in sidewall when compared to a 315/70r17 on a 17" wheel.
