Damn sick, there's a hemi and supercharger options for the wranglers. If I had a choice, I would go with the AEV Hemi package

Upon further review, I realized that Im stupid and your "twin" is a different color.



The turbo'd Wrangler didn't make it out to C&C this morning. I hope he shows up to the next one. Im really curious how its set up.

Here's a mini update, I'm about to put in a pretty big order:

Nitro 4.56 gears with master install kits
Riddler front and rear diff covers
JKS Quick Disconnects

Then...

Nitro front axle sleeves
Upgrade the front and rear control arm and trackbar bolts.

Never done with a Jeep... I'm shooting to get my Bushwacker fenders installed this weekend too. Pictures to follow

Thanks guys, I don't think I can go any bigger. I have just enough clearance to get into parking decks and garages. Plus, the fenders allow for more articulation compared to the stock fenders.

With the regear, I thinking about adding lockers to the axles... also thinking about swapping out the bull bar for a stinger

Regeared yesterday and it's a world of difference driving the rig. Threw on the diff covers

Took off the soft top completely and installed some safari straps.

Nice, thanks! I love your Jeep man. I'm going to hit up a Cars & Coffee this weekend. Should be fun having a bunch of Wranglers with the rest of the exotic sport cars.

Looks good although I prefer the stock fenders over the new ones. I love everything else about it. Bigger tires may change my opinion though.

Yep. VW is bringing out a Veyron, plus some of the 86ers are going to be there. I also need to pick up some Amsoil fluids from my friend.

So next on my list is a winch. I really want to swap my bumper and fenders for Poison Spyders:

This would be the bumper with skid with the BW fenders (what I have currently)




PSC bumper and skids with aluminum fenders. They just look badass and the fenders would be stronger compared to my plastic fenders. Unfortunately, PSC stuff is really expensive. Plus, I'll be adding a lot of extra weight. One of the benefits of my current bumper is that it's only 35lbs. I love how my rig looks now, but wish it was more aggressive. Thoughts?

Dude, that is sick.

At first I thought your bumper looked great BUT that Poison bumper looks mean. I think if you add a winch to your current step up, it will look pretty aggressive though. As for the fenders, I don't notice a huge difference head on but the side view looks pretty mean. I personally would get the bumper and skid and skip the fenders tho.

Nice to see you using it off road so much

Thanks! I love wheeling the rig... I wish I went with the Rubicon from the start (lockers and higher gears from the factory). Yeah, don't get me wrong, the BW fenders and LoD bumper looks great in person. I got the bumper for the light weight and looks. I was thinking about just adding the winch, but there are clearance issues with the mounting location and the front grille (or maybe I'm just justifying the PSC bumper).

The one thing I've been iffy on with the BW fenders is the droop in the front. The PSC doesn't have it and it just looks cleaner. It comes in two widths (narrow and standard). My buddy with the black rig has the narrows.

I think I will go with the bumper/skid/winch first and see how it looks. All knowing that I'll probably buy the fenders a month later

Id keep the fenders you have now, but the other bumper is sick. Gotta stick with the round fogs though since they compliment the factory lighting nicely.
