My dealer showed me a White LE that got delivered the other day... (I’m stuck in Granite Crystal Metallic purgatory... waiting, waiting, waiting... straining my Zen, but still waiting nonetheless!)
So, seriously, tell us how epically awesome your ArmCandy is! Totally worth the wait, right? Better than expected? I was blown away by the JT LE in person... share with us poor waiting slobs... is it like Christmas when we were kids, and we woke up to find that most special present we’d always begged for, and it was better than we even dreamed? ;{
Honestly it’s amazing.. a head turner for sure.. people have followed me driving to parking garages to chat with me about it and look inside. It’s a smooth ride and really better then my JL .. I do like the leather dash with the red stitching

Thanks I appreciate it.. I do love photography and a easy subject to shoot.. more photos and drone work coming.
Killer. Ever paint your subject with light in a very dark, long shutter shot? A local photographer does it. Looks awesome, I'll post a link in a bit. Want to commission him to shoot my JT once I get it done up.

Jeep Gladiator Rubicon
One of the great things about the Bright White color is the details of the red trim lettering and vinyl through out the exterior and is one of few the red dash looks great on.

I love those wheels, helps bring out the details with the red throughout the rest of the truck. Good build.

I absolutely love it. All along I’ve liked a white rubicon. These 35s on 18 with 2 inch lift looks really nice. Is it really only 2 inches of lift? I like the big gap between the tires and fenders. More than I expected with this setup.

What’s up everyone!!

My name is Josh and I live in Boise Idaho. Just received my LE Rubi Gladiator a couple weeks ago... right off the bat I had wheels and tires waiting for the Jeep .. I didn’t know if I wanted to do the Mopar lift cause people were rockin 37s with it and thought the 35s would be too small, but I’m glad I did :)

Build as follows
35/12.50/18s - Nitto Trail Grappler

Unique tire info for these.. they are around 35.4 tall and 13.3 wide I think so it was a bigger looking tire then expected which made me happy cause I did order some Duratracs prior and they were under a 35 but still 12.5

18inch Fuel Zephyer wheels in candy apple red. Offset is 0 pretty much.. the -18 were a few months out which I couldn’t wait for.. they turned out amazing

After seeing the 35s clear with no problems I decided to go with the Mopar 2inch lift and I LOVE how it turned out..

Full tint all the way around

As for upcoming mods... a few from MORE off-road so stay tuned

Have any questions hit me up.. I do work for a Jeep dealer


First couple pics are without the lift then with.

How do you like the nitto tires? Is the noise level ok on the road? I was going with km3 but your right the tire size at 35” looks great.

Great looking JT. Love the photos. Did you need to use spacers with those wheels? They really look great.

How does that lift compare to the OEM Rubi suspension? It looks to me like the OEM Rubi setup is pretty much the JL 2" lift, change my mind... ;o)

Beautiful truck, man.
