Which reverse camera is that? I like how it sits flush and fits the hole perfectly.

There are still a few more items to turn blue: fairlead, hook and synthetic line. I like the second gen VKS stubby with the fogs. I got the first gen before fog lights were offered.

Nice Jeep.

Haha, I'm thinking of doing the fairlead flat black. Bet one of those Factor 55 blue clevis things would look good too.

Sorry, I must've overlooked your questions about the box.







I would need to make a few adjustments to it before another one would be made though, and also get with the laser shop to get a price.

Love the bigger storage box, but with that design and your rear bumper choice it looks like you can't get to the receiver hitch pin...or is it just the angle?

Great looking build

You are right! I ended up having to drill a hole through everything to put the pin in vertically from inside the storage box.

Here I am doing that the night before leaving for Moab some we could haul our mtb's on the back lol

The Jeep came through for us and did exactly what I wanted out of it this last week. Loaded up another couple with us, luggage for 9 days and 2 mtb's, and drove that bitch all the way out to Easter Jeep Safari from Louisiana! I hammered on it all week and then we turned around and drove it home. She didnt give us a single problem all week neither!
Man what a good time we had in Moab. Met a lot of great people and new friends, put on a good show, and planned some new changes coming soon.





Monster dinner at the Blu Pig! Man that's was good!



A little unorthodox for us but we ended up on Pritchett Canyon the first day out with the Rock Krawler group. Was told that was one of the toughest trails in Moab! So no warm up runs to start with our first time wheelin Moab, lol! It def was no joke!
Seen a nice white JKU flop over and slide down the first big obstacle that morning and trash out the hardtop and doors, no telling what else got tweaked.
Luckily there were some great spotters on hand everywhere needed and kept us safe from getting in a bind. Thank you Rock Krawler and Crawlerconceptz. A lot of the climbs got pretty eerie for us!





I was very shocked at how well my school bus handled and climbed out there. When we finally made it to Rocker Knocker, there were V8 buggies bouncing there way up the middle and people winching up the left side and a JKU with a broke TRE blocking the bypass for everyone! The 4 doors were having trouble doing the crab walk across the middle without falling off the line on the left and were having to winch. The problem was, the winch point was way to the left and winching would pull you right into a large boulder on your rocker panels.
I don't have rocker protection yet so I knew the only option for me was to go straight up the center with the bypass being blocked. We watched another JKU on UD60'S and 40" nittos try for probably 30-45 minutes to get up the climb every which way he could only to give up and back down. I had a good feeling I could make it with a little more throttle so I was pumped to get up there right after. Took a few tries but after I got comfortable hammering on it, she hopped up there 1 ledge at a time and Quadratec got the whole thing on video! It's a little long but it was cool they posted it all like that. Link below:

Awesome video! I'm sure it feels good to have your build validated like that... on an epic trip with no breakage. Congrats

Very cool video. Great to hear the Jeep performed as expected. It looks damn good too.

Oh, and I dig the floor jack drill press.

My wife and friends decided to go climb way the hell up this rock.




Friday morning my buddy and I took our bikes out to the Slickrock trail. It was awesome!
