    2016 JKU Rubi Hard Rock....

    Well I purchased my 2016 about a year ago.... Ordered it in Tank with virtually no options other than 4.10 with Auto and a hard top... I just got around to purchasing a whole ton of parts to make it more capable than stock for Black Friday specials... In a couple weeks I will be spending a long weekend in my garage installing everything.

    3.5" Rock Krawler X-Factor Mid-arm Lift (INSTALLED)
    3" RK Bump Stops (INSTALLED)
    RK Drag Link (INSTALLED)
    Fox remote resv shock with Adjusters (INSTALLED)

    Dynatrac ProRock 44 housing with Dynatrac ball joints and Synergy high steer mount (going to swap all my Rubi internals) (INSTALLED)

    Trail Ready Hard Rock 17x10 rims (Sent defective paint job)
    ATX Chamber Pro II (INSTALLED)
    BFG 35" Mud KM2

    Synergy HD Transmission cross member skid.
    Synergy Transfer Case Skid
    Synergy Oil Skid.

    I have a lot of installing now to do once it all arrives.

    Already Installed:

    Vision X Headlights
    Vision X Foglights
    Vision X Single Row XPR Light Bar
    HMF Windsheild Mount

    Seems like a solid start! That seems like way more work than one long weekend but sure sounds like fun! Post up some before and after pics.

    Well I guess you can say I bought it all at once but I have been waiting a year since I purchased the jeep to do this and cannot pass up the Black Friday specials... So, major credit card breakage but other than bumpers, fenders, and upgrading my rubi rockers to something stronger, I believe it will be very solid on the trails.... I am just already having buyers remorse not to take the extra plunge into 37" tires but that would have set me back about an additional $400 in rubber and probably another $1000+ for changing gear ratio... And that would have left my axles far more susceptible to breakage... Maybe next year

    Well To update...

    I have received the majority of my parts... Just had a Semi pull up yesterday and drop off a 500# pallet with my new front PR44 axle housing, drive shaft, and 90% of the RK lift kit.. Received my BFG Muds earlier this week. Now I just need to wait on my Fox shocks, misc box for RK (brake lines and such), and rims...

    My shocks are Shipping today or monday so I should see them by the end of the week or monday after Christmas.

    My RK misc box is taking a detour from the shipping point in KY to NY and should be here in California this monday...

    The Rims according to Trail Ready should be back from powder coating next week and hopefully in my hands by the end of week.

    I just broke down today and purchased the LOD Destoyer rear bumper with tire carrier but that will take 3-4 weeks according to LOD as they are majorly backordered.



    Looks like I will be installing my lift for Christmas weekend.... Hopefully be able to stretch it out on New Years

    Hopefully you have some experienced friends with tools! Need a lot of suds too! Sounds like fun! Weather here sucks for working outside or in an unheated garage. Hopefully CA is better!
