Default Project: Rubber Ducky

Wanted to start a build thread on the new jeep. I haven't thought of a great name for it so "Rubber Ducky" is a place holder... maybe it'll stick. Pretty Stoked seing as it is pretty much a dream jeep for me but id like to make some changes to make it my own.

Overall plans

I really don't want to change it a lot, just make it more betterer for Stacey to drive and take away some band-aids by the PO
  • Lower it 1-2". It is freaking tall. like probably 4.5" and is hard to get in and with the short arms it rides like a dump truck.
  • Tummy tuck (I welcome recomendations on brands. so far i really like undercover fab and the lo pro mount).
  • Corner armor
  • Rear bumper (with or without tire carrier) if without get a body mounted carrier that opens with the hatch.
  • rocker guards
  • I have the spare rim but need to get a spare tire.
  • Wheel it.
  • exp it.
  • drive it like it is a convertible to work.
  • enjoy the fuck out of it.

Looks great. I've got the UCF tummy tuck skid under my YJ and it was easy to install. The ultra-clearance skid directions says you need a 2" body lift, but I've got a 1.25" body lift and it works fine.
