Back in a jeep!!!

Long story short, a few months ago my JK caught on fire, damage was minimal but I got frustrated with waiting and having to borrow a vehicle for the 2 months it was down. in the wait time I bought a 11 f250 and a $2500 4 banger TJ, slapped some 33's on the TJ and lunchbox lockers and have been having a blast wheeling it but this whole time I have been missing the JK, so its time for a new one (well used but new to me).

I found a 2013 10A JKUR that was exactly what I wanted other than being auto when I prefer standard (JK was auto also) so I am jumping on it and trading the truck in. The JKUR is all stock (big plus to me) and needs a set of tires desperately, so I am ordering a set of 37's for it as soon as this is a done deal, also ordering an RK 3.5" lift and maybe some sh!ttybilt flat flares to give me a little more room for up travel.I haven't decided on which exact lift yet, depending on what they end up giving me for the truck it will either be a 3.5 flex or X factor long arm. If its the flex I will eventually upgrade to long arms but I can work with short arms for now.

I guess I missed that in the op, I sold it because I bought the truck. it was fixed with all mopar parts and then sold to a guy in Louisiana for his daughter. I told him all about the fire and every thing I knew wrong with it and he and his daughter loved it so much they came and picked it up.

Any way I have Evo plush ride springs with fox shocks on the way for it, rk front track bar, synergy rear track bar, track bar relocation brackets ( I wanna make sure the axles are straight lol) 37" procomps, flat fenders, new headlight bulbs, wanna be spod from Amazon, bartact grab handles, and superchips traildash2 all coming in today or came in the last couple days.

Good to have you back. I took a break in the 2006-2014 time frame and it sucked. Nothing like getting the wave instead of the finger. Lol
