    Default 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
    4.88 Gears
    Chromoly Rear Shafts
    Poison Spyder Brawler Lite Front Bumper
    Poison Spyder BFH Rear Bumper
    Tera Flex Tire Carrier
    AFE Cat back Exhaust
    Procal

    Thanks guys!

    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.

    If you're going big on wheels tires and suspension, don't skimp on your DS. Go with a 1350, you're running heavy wheels and large tires.

    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.

    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:

    Evo Sliders
    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.

    The rear bumper tire carrier setup was the hardest to decide on. Most of the bumper tire carrier combos look bulky to me, that's why I decided on the Teraflex carrier with the PS BFH rear bumper. Also the BFH rear and brawler lite front would look good together I thought.

    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?
