PED's Rig

Hey everyone, a relatively new jeep owner here, I traded my 97 4runner for a 2014 JKU Unlimited last April. I figured why not share my rig and get some ideas and feedback from other members. This is the day I bought her:
Attachment 220434
Attachment 220442

I immediately took her out and got her dirty. It was amazing the difference in capabilties between the two even if she was still stock. The 4runner had a 3" Toytec lift running 33's and she still did better the first time out.

Unfortunately I noticed some things that needed changing immediately and so starts the cycle...

I decided to put on a 3" Teraflex lift kit with the 8 flex arms and the HD Track bar.

Since that was getting done figured I may as well get some shoes that fit. Got talked into trying out the new Toyo RT's. They are a decent tire but don't clear mud for anything. Also the customer service I've received since then from the guy that I bought them from has kind of ruined them for me. Will probably just stick with Goodyear (old faithful) next time.

Where in the hell did you find mud in Phoenix?

Welcome to the forum from Goodyear! Nice rig!

Haha, coming up banks at Turke Creek the first time. But right now I am living in Texas, and figured I'd try some real mudding since there is 0 rock crawling where I am.

Thanks! It was the only 2014 color option I could stand. I am excited to see what other people are doing with their rigs on this forum, as well as bouncing some ideas off of people.
