Rock Krawler KOH 2014 Build Under Way

We know this forum is all about JK's, but many of you have asked us to share our builds with you! Our KOH rig for 2014 to test our Bypass Shocks is an LJ.

The vehicle was tore down to the bare bones!



Fully mocked up only to be tore down again and sent to paint!



The axle housings were fully welded and powder coated here in house!



Now we are just waiting on the rig to come back from paint to start the final assembly! [Hopefully this Friday - Fingers Crossed]

Follow along for more exciting photos as the rig comes together!

One thing to note; we are using all of our products for this build. Our shocks, our control arms, our joints, our standard mounting brackets. Everything you could by right from us for your vehicle. We are putting our money where our mouth is just like we did on our Victim Build.

The chassis and components are all back from paint! This rig is going to look sick for sure… It had better perform as good as it is going to look!

We are using our Off-Road Pro Series control arms for this build just like you could buy off the shelf from us. 7075-T6 Aluminum with Pro Series Krawler Joints at each end. These arms will take a beating for sure. We powder coated them a custom yellow color in house just to match the Jeep.





The extended PSC Crusher Corners are mounted.



The PSC Rocker Knockers are also mounted!





Time to link it up! We should be getting the motor back front the engine builder today too!

Happy Turkey Day Guys!

We just picked the motor back up from Bedell Racing Engines.

They completely reworked the Magnum 360 adding full Scat forged internals, Edelbrock Aluminum heads, full roller valve train, balanced and blue printed!

Time to drop it in!

Sorry for not replying in a while... We have been so busy it has been crazy. Testing and tuning this thing in the sub zero temperatures has not been a lot of fun.

We will be running our 2 5/8 Coil Overs and New 2 5/8 Bypass Shocks on each corner.







Currie Fabbed 9's front and rear with Nitro Gear 3rd Members, Detroit Lockers, 4.88 gears, and Currie Pinion Guards will be performing out axle duties.






Our dash is like our products - as simple as possible. Nothing fancy, just reliable and the info we need to keep the vehicle moving...



The LJ is completely wrapped in proven Poison Spyder Armor and high line kit.......





We think it turned out pretty well and hope to do well at KOH. We have a lot of new products in this vehicle to test out... That will keep us on our toes..

Rig looks killer! I'd love to hear how those Falken MTs work. Hope you guys draw a low starting number. I have a feeling the race course could get cluttered quickly with broken rigs.

Good luck!

Hey JP, maybe missed it... but is that a single end full hydro ram or are you running a box with assist?
Edit: I think I see a drag link in one of the pics.

We are proud to announce that the new LJ completed the course with flying colors. Absolutely every RK part on the Rig performed flawlessly. The Pro Series joints are still tight as new and ready for the next beating. The RRD Racing Coil Overs and Bypass Shocks did very well. Stay tuned for a high light video. We are really proud of our guys as this was a complete in house build...
