    RL206's 2013 JKU Journal

    Hey guys, figured I'd start a thread and keep a little bit of a journal to track progress of my Jeep and trips w/ it.

    I picked up a 2013 JKU Sport 2/2017

    Main goal is to have fun w/ it but ultimately, it will probably be based around somewhat of an overland style, as I camp and do road trips pretty frequently.

    2013 JKU Sport
    3.6L
    6spd
    22k miles
    Soft Top
    Originally from Vegas, but shes not a dirty girl

    Previous owner hit something and cracked the front bumper cover and had some mild rust going on the metal so found it easier to replace w/ a stock one I snagged from the local 4x4 swapmeet for $10

    Here she is in all of her stock glory.

    I like the overland stuff. I always have it in the back of my mind to to get a cheap older JK in a few years so I can build a second Jeep in the overland style. Not everybody's a rock crawler and that's okay. Around here people do tend to laugh at the word overlanding saying is is just an uppity way of saying camping. It's all in good fun though. Look forward to your build.

    It is lol, however, I plan to do a bunch of it. I actually have an interview on Friday and and get word Monday following, so this rig could start moving along faster than I had hoped.

    I have always wanted to go to Moab and want to be capable of going there having fun and not worrying the entire time of parts breaking. Time will tell though!

    I've felt the same way. Would like to have 2 jks. One for wheeling and one for camping.

    Not much of an update, but decided w/ a couple getaway's in the picture, I'd snag a Smittybilt seat cover and ditch using a towel to try to keep the seat a bit cleaner and stay more organized.
    I know I'll get some flack but this is the only Smittybilt product I plan on using. I made a first aid kit and put what recovery gear I do have in the pouches and will snag some more to fill it up as time goes.
