Maybe we will run into or pass by each other some day! I have yet to see another gator on my few drives up and down the I-5. It would be cool to see another one.
I’ve only seen 1 other lifted white JT in my area.. yep same winch!

This is one of my favourite builds on this site. :rock:
wow, that’s saying a lot! Appreciate it :please:

Looks great! I plan on running the same winch. What winch plate did you go with?
winch plate was included with my Genright bumper... I’m sure they have options that may suit your needs

Wow, it’s been a minute since I’ve posted. Not much has changed, but I’m pretty stoked about my new RTT :rock:

replaced the stock sway bar with a Currie antirock... definitely has increased body roll as a daily but nothing crazy.

sorry it took a while.. I wanted to keep the max tow “flares” so I just cut what I needed to at an angle

no worries, i finally got home to install my aal kit but i decided to remove the full under fender. i really wanted to keep it but it just looked funny chopped up. i think the non max tow fenders look better .

Passed 1 year of ownership at the beginning of this month! Decided to gift the car with some 5.13 gears and a rear locker :) I’m still in the break in period but it feels great so far. 8th gear holds well and averaging around 18 mpg.

leading up to the regear/locker, I installed an arb dual compressor behind the rear seat (super handy being able to air up as needed). Also decided to fully split my fenders and now waiting on some inner liners.

@Altex how are you liking the rails? I've been looking for a rail solution to work with my mopar cover, was about to buy those and seen someone else on the forum ran these with a RTT and got bed damage from it.

I have no complaints!!.. I carry my RTT on them half the year. It’s about 125 pounds plus an additional 400 pounds when in use
