Mr. yuck

So about 2 years ago I decided I wanted to get into this Jeep thing. So, I researched and researched. I went back and forth about TJ vs JK and Rubicon vs X and 2 door vs 4 door. I finally made up my mind that I wanted a 2 door JK Rubicon. I knew I was going to beat on it so I thought that maybe I should save some money and get an older TJ. Lucky for me, I have the best wife in the world and she told be that if I donít get what I really want I was not going to be happy. Boy was she right. I searched long and hard and finally found my prize. A 2007 2 door Rubicon, it was even in my first choice of color. This thing was cherry! It had obviously never been off road. It was packed with aftermarket accessories. Mud flaps front and rear, rain guards on the windows, bug shield, chrome step bars, hood lock, gas cap cover, the works. I promptly ripped all that shit off. This is one of the first pictures I took of it.

For the last 2 years I have been wheeling the shit out of it pretty much bone stock. Dented the front bumper so I cut the ends of. Got a free set of cut stock front fenders so I ran them, but thatís about it. Here are a few pictures of me running it stock.

This year I decided it was time for a change. So I was deployed to Iraq over the winter and that gave me a lot of time to research parts and figure out exactly what I wanted for my JK. This is what I ended up with. Meet Mr. Yuck!

I want to extend a huge thanks out to Marcus at River City Offroad.

Also thanks go out to Brian (Otnoc311) for offering up use of his garage and tools for the lift install!

I will have some better pictures after our wheeling trip this weekend.

Thank you again for your service and your support!

You must have grown up in the Pittsburg area.

Thanks for all the positive comments. The wheels really do look good on there. Its a good thing too. I waited something like 6-7 weeks for them to be built. Marcus was going out of his mind! LOL

Killer JK! Sorry if this is obvious, but what made you go with a custom steel wheel. I would think you could find plenty of 15x10 5on5 steel wheels off the shelf.


Never knew Mr.Yuck was a PA thing, lived there for a few years and always assumed it was a national campaign...

they were not custom ordered. It was a configuration they offered as far as I can tell. It was the manufacture that was dragging their feet I think.

They do but they measure pretty much exactly true to size both hight and width.

Mr. yuck

Haven't heard from Marc in a long time. Not sure what wheels he ran but they held up good, he wheeled his rig pretty often

Mr. yuck

I ordered those wheels for Marc and they were a custom order. The color was a custom run and could be ordered again.
