A couple of months ago the 12 was traded for a 13 R10A. Life has been busy as hell with a move to Florida, and other shit, so I finally was able to get started on the Jeep three weeks ago.

First up is the lift.

I already had OME long travel shocks, all eight adjustable Rock Krawler control arms, and double adjustable Synergy Suspension track bars. So ordered a set of Metal Cloak 3.5" springs, rear lower shock brackets to raise the lower rear shock mount 3". Nemesis Industries lower front shock mount to raise the shock 3/4", move it outboard, and rotate it 90 degrees. Also used a set of Teraflex 2" front shock extensions to lower the upper mounting point of the front shock. After install, the front end was sitting an exact 2" lower than the rear... I'll be replacing the metal cloak springs in the next few months with either RK or SS springs since I know those are better quality. In the mean time I shoved a 2" Teraflex poly spacer in that I had laying in the parts bin. Synergy Suspension 3" front bump stops and 4" rears round out the suspension.

In the beginning...

And the rear. I know I still have to trim the LCA mount for clearance and box it for strength.

Running 37's I ordered Poison Spyder's front and rear flares for clearance.

I also went ahead and sprayed the wheel wells gloss black while I was in there working.

Knocked out a couple of little projects.

Bushwhacker has a line that they call "Trail Armor". LOL. Anyway, they have a tailgate guard that I wanted, but it also came with a bug shield. Which honestly IMO is probably the best looking one I've seen for the JK. So I went ahead and installed that too.

Tailgate protector.

Another product in the line is there tub armor. Again, IT AIN'T ARMOR. Plastic material just like your flares. But Since I have sliders, I wanted something to protect the lower edge of the tub from scratches and rock chips. An added benefit is it also incorporates a door sill guard.

I also threw in a VDP cup holder trash can combo to help try and keep the interior "clean"

Other cosmetic enhancements to my mall crawler.

Found a cheap set of billet grill guards on ebay. Only problem was theory were chrome. Rustoleum to the rescue. I also took the time to install a set of Euro Light Gaurds. These are the crappy style that screw into the grill. A little later you'll see that it doesn't matter, and I had to replace my grill.

Making the rub rings on the Level 8 ZX's "pretty". Again ATU's color matched rattle can and red paint.

Installed a PSC Tramp Stamp II and a plate delete plug, threw some red vinyl under the cutout to tie in the red accent color thing going on.

Something that bothers me on the JK. The transition from the tub to the rear bumper, hard to see in the above pic, but to me there just isn't a clear enough cutoff. So I cleaned it up a bit. Again, gloss black.

Still had my Rock Hard 4x4 Sport Cage, so painted that red and threw it in too.

Cleaning up the firewall area that shows when the cage is installed.

Installed the Maximus III winch plate, and an Engo 9000 winch, took the endcaps off the front bumper too, and played with the color matched paint to make it pop a little more.

Now you ask what it's powering?

Under the hood, Viair compressor, up front a set of Rigid Dually's, and a 50" LED bar on PSC mounts. In back a 4" LED bar, and LED rock lights underneath.

Performance...

Yanked to stock muffler, cut out the resonator, and put in a Flowmaster 40 Series Delta Flow can. The lap bands were emp and for fitment purposes before I burned it in.

And back to the suspension...

This was a 23 degree RTI ramp that I hit at the Matanzas Jeep Club's Wheelers for the Wounded benefit last weekend.

965! That's equal to an 1103 on the standard 20 degree ramp.

Out of all that I'm really curious about the tail gate drop down kit. Worth it? Clean kit? Any remedy for the look with the missing factory hinge?

So many questions. But a beautiful 10A.
