Just another new guy from VA

Bought a JKU over the summer for my wife and I to enjoy. She enjoyed it so much she took it as her daily driver. So what to do, I had to find a 2dr JK for myself.

Here it is stock, the day after picking it up




And here it is a few weeks later after installing some Rubicon wheels w/ 33" Patagonia MT tires. I also added some JW Speaker LED headlights and amber turn signals.




I have a Mopar lift on the way and have some Currie control arms and track bars to fine tune things. I plan to upgrade to larger tires (35's is what I think I want) but wanted to get the lift on to see how much room I have, and I'm on the fence about adding some MCE flat fenders. Love the look, but concerned it would look out of proportion with 35's.

Still haven't installed the lift or exhaust on my JK. I installed a rancho 2" suspension with rs9000 shocks on my wife's JKU. Unfortunately she didn't like the additional ride height (2-3/8 front and 1-5/8 rear) like she thought she would, so I had to buy some stock length rancho shocks and reinstalled the stock springs w/ a 1" front spacer and .4" (10mm) rear spacer. Added a metal front bumper and 33's and my wife is pleased with the result.
