One of our GenRight Ambassadors in NC recently added a bunch of GenRight parts to his Jeep. He did a good job of taking pics so we thought we'd share his rebuild with you.

He started off with a 2008 JKUR with AEV front and rear numpers, AEV tire carrier, some homemade steel sliders and a 4: Teraflex Lift.

Before:

After:























As you can see, Chris also added new headlights, new Spider taillights, new Raceline Monster Beadlocks and new Master Pull winch line. With the new fenders, he was able to install a set of 3" Teraflex springs which actually lowered the Jeep by 2". He says the Jeep handles, brakes and accelerates better due to the lower COG and the reduced weight. It's winter in NC so he hasn't had a chance to do any real world testing but it looks like he should have even more tire clearance than before, even though his Jeep is 2' lower. Obviousl;y, he lost a little clearance on the belly.

Funny story. The guy that owns that shop "borrowed" the scales from his work. He had them over a year. The week before we're done, they call and ask for them back. So we have to schedule a time for him to bring the scales back to the shop and reweight it. Anyone know what a JKU hard top weighs?

THe sliders are steel and painted an "aluminum" color so they should be able to be touched up with a rattle can just like I did my black sliders. I think they match pretty well and I'm pleased with the overall look.

The old bumper and tire carrier weighed 120 pounds w/o the tire. The new rear bumper w/o the tire carrier or tire weighs 20 pounds. I think between switching to aluminum and going with the stubby up front, I should see some decent weight loss. The fenders are probably close to the same and the new sliders are definitely lighter. The wheels are obviously going to be heavier. I'm pretty curious to see what the after weight is going to be!

Nice to see you at least got a matching spare :thefinger:
I'm glad someone noticed! Ive had a mismatched spare since April and it's always bothered me. During the rebuild I was at Discount Tire getting the tires on my car balanced. I just decided to order a matching spare. They take good care of me at my local DT. The manager gave me the same price I paid for the tires back in April.

I figured if I was installung the beadlocks, I wanted to get everything right the first time around. I'm glad I did it!
