I traded Ultimate Weekend Warrior project for a 2008 Jeep Unlimited Rubicon (6-Speed) in the fall of 2011 because I wanted more space for my weekend projects and a Jeep for long distance overlanding.
It wasn’t really something I was planning on doing but a great deal came up and I basically traded one for one plus $2000… Not bad.. I even kept the winch off the TJ. The Jeep was cheap because you could tell it had a weird previous life. It had a new factory JK front bumper, 2 inch spacer lift, bald JK Rubicon tires and the fenders that showed tire rub. So obviously this jeep had bigger tires and off-roaded at some point. And it only had 47,000km on it! All great for me because I planned on modifying all those things.
I wanted to tell a story on how I built a Jeep that became my favorite build to date. I high suggest this setup to anyone looking to build a TJ but doesn’t want to go extreme.
My last Tj was a great off-road warrior but on-road manors with 4.5 inches of lift, 36 inch bias iRoks, automatic lockers front and rear and $30 shocks was horrible.. if not unsafe.. I even started to tow the Jeep to events.
