Hello everyone! I know some of you have seen pics of my truck in a few spots but figured I’d assemble a build thread to document everything do anyone who’s curious.

To start, my name is Matt and my JT is a Gobi Rubicon, ordered September 18th 2019, delivered October 17th 2019. saddle leather, base soft top (waiting for a premium tan option from someone in the future) 8.4 uconnect, spray in bed liner, steel bumper, trail cam, cold weather group, safety group, and LED lighting group.

I had a 2011 JKU Sahara that was JP11 (sold recently) and wanted to do my JT with the same theme. I’ll post some photos of the thus far and continue to update this thread as I move forward with future mods :)

If you want to follow my Instagram page, my handle is @Grabberbluemach. It’s not all about my JT, I’ve got a couple of builds going on but you’re welcome to follow along!

Phase 1 was getting the graphics laid out. I chose to plastidip the stock wheels until I got my new wheels and lift installed. Stripes are satin red vinyl.

Phase 2 was getting my wheels, having them powder coated, and having my Mopar 2” lift installed with my 37x12.5r17 K02 all terrains. Wheels I went with are Fifteen52 turbomac HDs. Beautiful quality wheel.

Phase 3 is still in the works. Waiting on some parts to make it to production that were delayed due to Covid, but it’s coming! Mods have been kind of quiet during quarantine other than the addition of a tan spiderwebshade. Great quality piece. Install was pretty easy, just needed to drop the windshield down to get the front clips in place.

Looks good Matt, its Chris ( muddyr50 on insta) Can’t wait to see everything you do to this one. I’m still waiting on mine to be built. And like you I’m waiting on a Premium Tan top. Been bugging @Bestop to make one for us but they don’t seem to want to.

Hey man! Yeah worst case if they don’t ever make one I’ll have to have one custom made over the frame I’ve got

Last year Bestop sent me their contact to have a custom top done by their supplier that do the Code1 build. Fingers still crossed that someone makes one or FCA does, but I’m sure you know if they will :p lol
