2013 JKU Illinois Build

Hello everyone, so recently I picked up a '13 bright white JKU Sahara. This build will be a long term project for me. I will try my best to update the thread with plenty of pictures. I live in mother Illinois but plan on building a reliable rig to go out west. I have friends I visit out in Arizona, so I visit a few times a year. I love it out west but am fortunate to have a solid career in Illinois. I know what I want to do but obviously don't have all the money to do it all at once. I think the majority of us can relate. I have already bought 37" Nitto Trail Grapplers. I also ordered Clayton's 4.5" short arm kit. The kit gives me all the necessary parts to lift now and get long arms later. I am impatient, so I will be ordering the long arm kit in a couple months. I am trying to find a Dana 44 housing and am going to build that and the rear 44. I'm not going to be wheeling frequent or hard enough to justify 60's, but then again you never know. I am kind of waiting on completing a front 44 before gearing. Not ideal when I have parts waiting to go on the jk now. But build in progress. Hope everyone enjoys my build.

Lol I did not want to spend all my bread on bead locks. This is a relatively new wheel made by Level8. Level8 Trackers, discount tire carries them. The outer ring does bolt to the wheel and can be painted. It gives you the look of a bead lock but gives you protection against rocks with the ring.
