So I finally broke down and ordered a '08 Jeep Unlimited Rubicon. I figured I might as well since its going to be another 5 years before I finish my '74 Bronco that i am turning into a rock crawler. Never thought that I would own a Jeep, but I am looking forward to going four wheeling again.
Thus, I am starting a new project entitled Project Unlimited Bolts. Why "Unlimited Bolts"? because the intent of this build is to keep it simple and use only bolt on components. You see, I have enough fabrication ahead of me turning my '74 EB into a rock crawler (4 links, rockwells or unimogs, diesel, full cage, etc) and since their only only 24 hours in a day, and i do have to work, I am going to take advantage of the after market for this build. The after market for an '08 Jeep has much more options then a '74.
'08 4-door Unlimited Rubicon
Power package (wanted to keep truck basic, but "splurged" on having an alarm)
Dana 44's with lockers
enough plastic to build a boat from (the dealer wouldn't let me order it without all this trim!!!!)
Long arm suspension (4" lift?)
37" tires (BFG KM2's)
front/rear steel bumpers
I am going to start with a suspension lift. I have been looking online and really like Full-Tractions lift. Looks like it could take some abuse. Anyone have this installed? Anyone have thoughts on a better lift that flexes more?
