Talking 2012 Jkur...Phase 1 done....

Ok, so I got the lift on this weekend. I didn't get to align it yet, holiday season is hectic here! Lift went on smoother and easier than I thought. Couple pitfalls are the front passenger shock and getting the lower rear control arms on. I did everything by myself with one friend helping me find tools. Total time was 1.5 days with 3 hours centering the axles.... Here's the current pic...

Phase 2 cometh: ARMOR!!

That looks pretty good! I've only seen those wheels on 1 other jk, pretty sweet.

It's the RK 3.5 mid arm xfactor with fox shocks. Rides great (still pending an alignment). Wheels are the moto metal 909 on 37" trail grapplers...

Phase 2, which I'm starting this week includes PSC rear bumper with tire carrier and tramp stamp, front psc brawler light with skid plate and xrc comp winch, and the psc rico weld on steps. I'm thinking about painting the "inside" of the armor, mounting everything, then taping and painting the outside. Think it would be easier than the mounting, dismounting, painting, mounting process. Going to be painting them in the rustoleum bed liner rattle cans.

Phase 3, will include the smart door openers, psc jk 4 dr body armor, and possibly the trailmod fenders... (any latest reviews on these?)

Scott.
