my 2012 jkus build so far (with pics and prices)

Ok I am done with part 3 of my build and sorry it was rainy and shitty out today so I didn't get pics...will try tomorrow but here is a list of my upgrades so far and what they cost me.

Okay I started with a 2012 JKUS with 16k miles BONE STOCK. About 6 months ago I put a set of wheels and 32" used tires I found on cl for a good deal. I then put on a zone 2" budget boost with shocks. (Waste of money) LOL

About a month ago I started the next step. I purchased and installed all of the following including pricing for those who are curious

305/70R17 Hankook Dynapro AT/m's $1178.45

Rugged Ridge xhd winch bumper $386.09

Rugged Ridge Hoop Over for xhd bumper $49.04

Storage ends for RR xhd bumper $227.97

RR Rear xhd bumper $633.54

Hitch Kit for RR bumper w/wiring $73.45

RR Overhead Storage Console $80.64

RR evap Skid Plate $76.31

RR 8500 Winch with synth rope $510.73

RR xhd recovery kit $116.94

Poison Spyder Bombshell Diff Covers $119.00 x2

RK 2.5 Flex w/bilstein 5100's $1094.99

rancho head pipe $74.94

PS Tramp Stamp II W/ LP light $59.00

PS led lic light & 3rd brake light $49.00

PS lic Delete Plug $13.35

RR winch cover $16.40

Procal Module $159.00



Install Front Bumper and Winch $275.00

Install Rear Bumper and Hitch $175.00

Install Evap Skid $40.00

Install Lift Kit $600.00

powder coat, paint and install diff covers $250.00

all of this is done except for the poison spyder stuff...they are backed up a bit on shipping the diff covers

Why in the world did you pay someone $1,340 to bolt parts onto your rig?

x2...Having someone install the lift I can understand, but I would have made an attempt at the bumpers myself. There is a shit ton of install threads on virtually every bumper made.

Looks good though.

I hate to be negative but I agree. I'm a very amateur mechanic but I pretty much have the exact same list of upgrades and the only thing I needed help with was the lift kit. Then again, I put a lot of hours into it. And, if you have the money and not a lot of time, then... I guess I can see it.

Anyway, I like your Jeep! It looks great!

Your Jeep is looking good and this has given me some ideas but I will bolt most if not all of it on myself. Thanks for sharing

I would love to have done the stuff besides the lift myself but I just recently moved to the area and my shop building isnt built yet. all of my tools, lift, and other stuff is still in st. louis.....I moved from a small house and a 7,000 square foot shop to a big house and a small garage..because i'm in the process of building it, i don't even have my toolbox here yet
