Took some pictures with my Wife's JLU and Business partners JL at a local distillery.

Installed a @JcrOffroad half rack and Mauler front bumper. Loved my old bumper but the new bumper allowed me to fit the VR EVO 10s winch.

How is the skyjacker lift doing? How is the ride/handling?
Skyjacker lift is doing great. The ride/handling are much better than I would have expected for an entry level kit & shocks. It is a bit firmer than stock, but still softer than most customers JL's I drive with M/T's.

I will be going to coilovers in the future because I enjoy tinkering with the suspension, but I have no problems continuing to daily drive with this kit until those options become available.

Your truck is looking great. Will you be adding a roof top tent on the JCR rack?
Thanks!
Once I get my axles installed I will start shopping for a tent to go on the rack. My issue is I would like to fit in the garage with the tent installed and still be able to comfortably fit with my Wife.

They look great!
While having two Jeeps and a wife that loves them is amazing, it sure can get expensive! :piggybank:

Haven't updated this in a while.

We installed a Rival4x4 Alluminum front bumper

Added some decals to the fender vents and rear. Also installed a Hauk Gladiator badge.

My Fusion 4x4 Axles finally arrived.
We decided to go with a Kingpin 60 front, and a 14 bolt rear(shaved to 13 for clearance).
5.38 gears, 2.5 ton steering components, and ARB lockers.

Ordered a set of Metalcloak arms, stripped the bushings out and sent them off to powdercoat along with the diff covers and steering components.

Powdercoater sent me a message yesterday that all my parts should be ready by Monday so I decided to spend Sunday pulling everything apart.

@TTEChris

Great Builds!

What are the specs on your wife’s Fuel wheels? They look to have more offset than a -12
What brand of beadlocks are you running?

Thanks!

The wheels on my wife's are Fuel Zephyr beadlocks with a -38 offset

Wheels on the Gladiator are Spyderlocks with the same offset :beer:
