Hi, been lurking around the forum for many years learning and I finally made the move early in the year to sell my TJ that I built and wheeled for 16 years.
After months of searching for the right Jeep, we settled on a used 2013 Commando Green JKUR. My wife and I fight over who gets to drive it and my 3 girls always want to ride in the Jeep
We have enjoyed some mild offroading and skid plate bashing... complete skid system, evap skid, diff covers, and LCA skids have been ordered. Will continue to wheel it stock until tires are toast and then the slow build begins (saving my pennies now). The Jeep will be a mall crawling, camping, fishing, hunting, beach cruising, rock crawling, family vehicle. I will continue to research my build but I think I have a good idea of what I want:
Artec skids - ordered
Posion spyder evap skid - ordered
Solid Diff covers - ordered
VKS front and rear bumpers
VKS weld on rocker guards
Tire carrier - TBD
MetalCloak 2.5-3.5 gamechanger OME version
Artec front Truss, C-gussets, new ball joints
35" GY MTR/kevlar (sticking with 35s for gearing, all around driveability, utility, and longevity of parts)
Much more to come and looking forward to becoming an active member of the JKO community!
