WEST BY GOD'S "Yeti" Build up

Hello guys Im Ramie AKA WEST BY GOD this will be my build up thread i have a 2014 JKU that is all stock, but as of this morning i hit up Marcus at RiverCity for a Rock Krawler X-Factor 3.5 with fox shocks, and fox stabilizer, 3" bumpstops. Cant wait for more parts to be ordered as funds allow. Also the name "Yeti" is because its gonna be big, white, and take on anything. but for now here is a current pic.

Then you should've named it Butter Bean.

Good luck with the build.

The Rock Krawler X-Factor 3.5,fox shocks, and fox stabilizer showed up today!!! Now just waiting for the 17" Matte Black Method Double Standards to arrive, and still have to order tires, either Kumho RoadVenture MT (had before and loved them) or Nitto mud grapplers. Also i will be sticking with 35s until i regear and at least strengthen the d30.

More updates and pics when the parts arrive!!

You're gonna love it! That Fox ATS is one of my favorite things on my JKU and I'm also running the 3.5 X-Factor.

You are probably going to end up wanting 37s sooner than later...3.73s and the six speed won't be terrible...

My white JKU is named Snow White thanks to my wonderful wife. She even brought home a light up wand from Disneyland and makes me keep it in the passenger seat pocket.

They are loud, but they dont drown out the radio or anything. Also I was told they do get louder as they wear, but this is not a concern to me at all.

Yeah I knew someone with 37" mud grapplers on his F-250 and they were loud. I love the look of them but with my wife and 3 year old daughter riding in the jeep there is no way and I hate listening to loud tires after running Baja Claw Radials on my GMC. I decided to go with the more civilized trail grapplers instead. I compromised on the agressiveness but not the size. I am going to run 40x13.50 17s because I did not want to do 35s then 37s then 40s like most end up doing because this gets expensive as those tires are costly. I was set on running 40s on my JK when I bought it and I wanted to buy wheels and tires once and be done with it until they wear out.
