I scored on some Rubi takeoff parts...ended up with full suspension, front plastic bumper, fenders with LED lights and rock rails! They fenders were scratched up pretty good...nice and broke in for the Jeep. I might sand them down and LineX them...thoughts...

Rubi take off and rock rails installed. Sets about an inch taller. Ride is just a little more firm than stock sport but I like it.

Oracle headlights. Picked these up from Quadratic. I went round and round on which lights to get. Happy with the purchase and very easy install. The video on Quadratics web site was very helpful and I extended the wire to the fuse box like Rob recommended.

Just placed a big order!

From quadratic:
•insane audio 9” radio
•insane audio front mount camera
•teraflex bump stops
•teraflex 1.5 spacer kit
•daystar rear spacer
•fox steering stabilizer

from Bam:
•mopar steel bumper
•mopar steel skid plate
•hardware for install
•led tail lights

from BB wheels:
•black rhino arsenal 17” in +30mm - excited to run these because there should be hardly any tire poke with that offset. I have seen other arsenals on JTs...ok lets be honest, a lot of those rims but I haven’t seen them with this particular offset. Will obviously post a lot of pics when they come so the others that want a set up that doesn’t poke can see.
•Kenda Klever 35x10.5x17 also excited for a taller skinny. Should sit nice under the finder!

I should get more updates on shipping tomorrow during business hours when things process. I already received an email from quadratic that the epic audio radio is on back order. Also, shout out to bam wholesale. They sent me a personal email (not an auto-response) that the brackets for the mopar steel skid plate bracket is a special order and will be delayed 3 days to ship and wanted confirmation if I still wanted the order to process. Talk about A+ customer service and A+ for lowest prices!

Looking forward to following this build! I am really interested to see the Insane Audio head unit; please be sure to take lots of pictures during the install (if you are doing it yourself) as well as before/after and impressions. Try dealing with them directly if QT is back-ordered; I've had communications with IA in the past, and they are quick to respond personally and answer any questions. It was that customer service that convinced me to just get the 7" when I order and replace with the IA head unit.

I plan on doing the install myself so I will for sure take lots of pics. I also ordered the front mount camera...so I will keep you updated on how I run the wiring through the firewall. I did get a response from QT that the head unit is on backorder...but on insanes website they are available...so we will see how long it takes. It seems like a really good product and I love the price compared to the alpine unit.

Fedex just delivered some goodies. Black rhinos should come Friday as well as the teraflex front spacer. This weekend should be good getting everything installed!

Fox steering stabilizer came today. Super simple install. Two, 18mm bolts to undo and torque back to 50ft pounds. Took it for a drive. It’s probably all mental but feels like less play in the steering. At least matching fox all the way around now.!

Ups just dropped off some BAM goodies. Got the mopar steel bumper, steel skid plate, brackets and hardware. I will install the bumper probably on Monday. For those that are interested I will take measurements before and after on how much of a drop I get before I do the teraflex spacer install. I will also try to take a lot of photos of the install for those that want this bumper on a sport.

Rims, tires and front bumper are on. I think it turned out nice. The Black Rhino Arsenals with the +30mm backspacing tuck really nice under the fenders with no tire poke. I took pics of the install and wrote down the sockets to use for the 3 piece bumper install if anyone needs info on that...the mopar picture instructions are straight forward they just didn’t have wrench sizes. I have the extra brackets that attach to the bottom of the steel skid plate but need the hardware to complete it. For now, the skid plate is attached with the 5 bolts on the bottom of the bumper. Road worthy just not trail worthy.

Just got a notification that the head unit shipped and should be here Friday. The front camera is still backordered. I wanted to wait and install them all at once but I know myself and won’t be able to wait so I am sure I will be installing it sometime Friday and will let ya know my thoughts.

Model Y Performance. Diesel JT hopefully soon
I’d love to see Kendra make a 37x11.50 and a 40x12.50 side walls remind me of the old super swampiers

I would love to see those tire options as well! I would consider 37s and a re-gear if they did! I know some tire manufacturers have a request form for future tires, maybe I will do some digging.
