My 2012 sport build

This is my first jeep so I thought it would be good to document it. I bought the Jeep used in Jan with 15k on it and got a smoking deal since I worked for the dealer ship. I bought it on Monday and that Saturday me and some buddies went wheelin' on the back side of Amicalola Falls.
After that trip I knew I needed better tires and wanted to lift it. For this build I decided to go with the Rough Country 2.5" kit with shocks and also got the adjustable front track bar and rear drop bracket. This kit was easy to put on in the driveway with me and 2 buddies. We put the kit on in April and I rode around with stock tires til this past Saturday. I decided to go with a set of 285/70/17 Cooper Discover ATP. I went with this size since I do a lot of driving and only do a little wheelin' when I have time. I am very happy with my set up. It suits my needs for the areas that we ride. Next on the list is a new winch bumper and winch.

Its been a while since I posted last and decided to do an update. I have since added a set of Rigid Industries dually spots to the windshield. I didn't want to cut anything inside my Jeep to mount the switch so decided to mount the switch in an existing hole in the a pillar. My girlfriend got me a Spiderweb Shade for our anniversary. This is a must have for a Jeep. I just received the last pieces to complete my CB install. I ordered The Cool Tech gate mount and was disappointed when i received the box bent and the CB antenna was crushed. Im still waiting to hear back from them and Fedex. The next thing on the list is a front winch bumper and winch and some ace engineering rock slides.
