2018 JLRU Upgrades

#Jeep is back together after adding @rock_krawler 2.5
@coopertire 37” STT Pros
@officialmopar snorkel
@blackrhinowheels 17” Arsenals at @badgerland_offroad and changing @gorhino #rockline front bumper for @roughcountry stubby w/ skid due to tire clearance on the 37s #JeepWrangler #JLRU #JeepLife

Also, I had always meant to go back and wire the 4 #LED pods and #lightbar on the #gorhino bumper for separate switching but changing it all out made it the perfect time.

Sanding and painting hardware

Took advantage of the warm weather and sanded and painted the #LicensePlateRelocation bracket, #camerahousing and #3rdbrakelight / plate light bracket.

The rust was actually worse than this pic – the license plate frame and 3rd light were getting quite bad

Everything off

Painting camera housing

Painting motobilt license plate relocation bracket

Painting 3rd brake & plate light

Camera housing finished

All back together. In hindsight, I should have painted the washers. Soon.

Fun things to come!

Off Roading w/ Brooks!

A couple of days ago, I went on a 2-state off-roading trip with my good friend Brooks.

We started in New Hampshire and worked our way through Mount Ephraim and then Bellows Falls culminating in an awesome overlook of the state borders.

Video of our trip:

A few still shots:

Brooks w/ the Jeep & the most capable Subaru in New England!

On the trail:

Off-Road Mode Pitch & Roll Gauges

Sway Bar: Disconnected Axles/Transfer Case: Locked

We even met a friend (with a bullhorn!) up near the overlook (video below)

The JK is sold!

After nearly a decade of fun, the Jeep JK is sold. It’s headed to a new life in Wyoming. I hope the new owners have as many wonderful adventures as we’ve had with it.
