Spot saver for my Gator build! Truck is currently in KZ status with window sticker waiting to be shipped. Sport S with Max tow package. Pretty plain factory build... 7” radio group, convenience group, auxiliary switch group.

First time jeep owner, first time truck owner. Truck will mainly be used as an all around utility vehicle, exploring WA state, hardware store runs, family hauler, and planning to tow my track car to different courses in my area.

Previous builds have been show and track oriented.. excited to be going a new direction. I’ll probably be posting more progress photos on my instagram @Altex for those of you that want to follow a bit closer

Build Progress:
-Fifteen52 Turbomac HD classics
-RK 3” Pro-x lift
-37” Milestar Patagonia’s
-Slush mats, hothead headliners, 13” antenna, front window tint, Tazer mini lite

In the works:
-Genright front stubby (off to powder coat)
- Warn vr10 winch
-Lighting improvements

Build Progress:
-Fifteen52 Turbomac HD classics in the garage
-RK 3” lift on order
-37” Tires TBD once I get the lift on
We are headed down the same road man. The RK Pro X lift is awesome. Have you seen the size of the quad rated coils for the rear? youtube RK coils, he shows them briefly at the end. If you're looking for a tire I would recommend Nitto Ridge Grapplers. They are the best tire I have ever ran on my JK and would be even better on the JT. Hybrid AT/MT

I did!! They are so beefy... can’t wait to get it installed. Was thinking to go with the Milestar’s as a first starter set. Easier on the wallet for other mods

My Gator JTR is also in KZ status so I'm going to assume you and I will be on the same train to Kent.
I'm building mine in a similar set up as the way out concept.
Fifteen52 Analog HD's
35" Nitto ridge grapplers
DV8 FBSHTB-19 front bumper
Warn 10k winch
All in my garage waiting for it to arrive.
Got someone designing the same vehicle wraps as the concept too.
Whatcom county here.

I received an “arrival to Kent“ ETA from my dealer for the 6th, we’re getting close! I’m hoping to score some good deals on bumper/winch & other mods for Black Friday

Then we are not on the same train cause a guy on here gave me a print out of my shipping log and it's not even due into Kent until the 14th. Lucky you if its coming on the 6th. I'm told mine might not even be to my dealer until the 16-20th. I hope mine comes on your train and I'll be super excited.

Officially took delivery today. 6 miles on the clock... color is perfect but very hard to capture. Lift kit is still a couple weeks out, but gives me time to enjoy as is

I told my dealer I'm expecting to take delivery by the end of next week and they said they have no control over that. We will see if my Jedi mind trick works.. haha

I’m excited to see what yours looks like since we are going down the same path I will be able to see what mine will kinda look like before I get there!

Called RK today and lift is still 2 weeks out. In the meantime, I picked up the amazon mopar mats.... cheaper than factory order and still have the carpet mats

Had the bed line-x’d... 10% off for Black Friday. I plugged all the threaded holes for future use

I’ve been loving the truck so far... so practical having a pickup around the house. Took a few loads of garbage from around the house to the dump.

Also picked up some hothead headliners tthag I still need to install. hoping to score on a roll up cover during Black Friday and thinking up picking up the gen right stubby bumper!
