New 2014 JKUR Build
New 2014 JKUR Build
Just traded my 2011 JKUR in for a 2014 JKUR and will be having Northridge 4x4 build it up to my dream Jeep. I would love any thoughts and ideas of things I've missed or experiences with products on my list. The Jeep will be a daily driver for now and eventually a 3rd car. Used for regular off road day trips and an annual trip to Rubicon. Here is the latest build sheet, it's an auto trans btw:
17 in ATX Slabs
37x12.5 Nitto Trail Grapplers
Evo Double D Long Arm lift with drag link flip
Fox Racing Shocks
Fox Steering stabilizer
C Gussets, Sleeves and Ball Joints
1310 Front DS
Dynatrac F&R Diff Covers
Chromoly Rear Shafts
Poison Spyder Brawler Lite Front Bumper
Poison Spyder BFH Rear Bumper
Tera Flex Tire Carrier
AFE Cat back Exhaust
I would throw some front chromo shafts and a winch on that list as well. Why new bj's when you already have brand new.

Stock ball joints suck. Plus welding C gussets makes for a good time to change the ball joints.

Going to be a nice build, take plenty of pixs.

Just my two cents, but, 1310 driveshafts are more then adequate for 37's. I have seen people pop u joints on 1350's places I took my adams1310. At extreme angles when flexing the oversize 1350 can bind because it can't reach the angles a 1310 can. Now if you are talking v8 power and 40's thats a different story.
'10 Rubicon Unlimited
3.5" Rock Crawler
37 1250 17 KM2's
Pro Rock 44
Schrockworks front bumper
Rancho rear with tire carrier
Smittybilt XRC12 winch
Rock Krawler HD Tie Rod
(4) 130 KC Daylighters
Poison Spyder Evap Skid
Awesome, great feedback so far! I will look at adding front chromoly shafts for added strength for the heavy wheels and tires. As for a winch, that will be added on round two of the build.
Future plans would include:
Warn 10k Synthetic winch
10 inch E Series Rigid Ind Light Bar on fair lead mount
Truck Lite head lights
ARB onboard air compressor with braided line
Flat Fenders (Not sure if I will cut myself or go with MCE Flex Fenders or Nemisis Flares)
Evo Skid Plates
I will do round two before my first Rubicon trip next summer.
At this point NR4x4 is waiting on the shocks, if they come in round one of the build should start next Saturday!
That looks like a great build. Personally I'd go for a bumper with the tire carrier. I have a PS Brawler Lite Front on my '09 JKR and love it. I'm going with the ACE Engineering rear bumper w/tire carrier for my '14 JKR because it works with the tailgate. The entire bumper is only $150 more than the Teraflex tailgate bracket.

I did hear that the ATX slabs aren't the best fit with the Teraflex carrier. I will order the adjustable mount with the hinge. Thoughts / Experiences?
