Just another Daily Driver Build Thread
I’ve decided to start this thread to chronically my upcoming modification to my Jeep JKU. You see I’m pretty damn sure I’ve gotten myself in way over my head, and finding my way out will probably be fairly entertaining and possibly entertaining for anyone other than me. More on that later, let’s start at the beginning...
March 30th, 2013:
My recent relocation to Myrtle Beach, SC had found me questioning the sensiblity of my BMW 645. Damn I loved that car. Her and I racked up a lot speeding tickets together. But trying to keep sand and other environmental pollutants out of the wonderfully luxurious interior was threatening my sanity.
I needed a beach mobile. Something I could put the top back let the kids get it all full of sand and not take up one of my give-a-craps. Enter the 2013 Jeep Unlimited Wrangler, known by the cool kids as the JKU. It seemed like the logical choice, but (and this is going to sound stupid) I hate the way a stock JK looks. Give that thing some big tires and a little bit of a lift and things start to get interesting, but to me a bone stock Wrangler looks awful. In order to get me out the door, the salesman worked up a deal to put in a lift and some bigger tires in order to make it more appealing. That night I drove home a black
2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, while the dealership acquired the the MOPAR Lift Kit and 33in tires.
