This bright yellow jeep was one of the half dozen jeeps that came into the shop last week for some modifications or general maintenance. The owner was planning on a road trip and wanted to flat tow it behind his RV. The DIY crew went through the lift and wiring to get that all set and fabricated a quick front bumper to replace the plastic junk slapped on there by the factory. This jeep is a perfect example of what a mild lift and some 35" tires can do for the appearance and trail readiness of a stock Jeep Wrangler 4 Door.
Well the time finally came for Derek to lift his own jeep so that we could go have some fun on the trails up at Bear Lake. He bought this jeep about 3 months ago and has been grumbling that he hates driving it around in stock form. The 4.5" Rough Country lift went in with no problems and turned out to be a great kit for the money. We spent two nights at the shop lifting the jeep and fabricating some control arm skid plates as well as some pretty serious rock rails. Check out some photos of the jeep’s transformation and check back for some shots of it in action on the trail.
Brian and Hannah brought in their 2008 Jeep Wrangler JK to get a little more clearance under the rig and to get her a bit more trail friendly. The two of them jumped in and spent all day adding a 3" Full Traction lift kit as well as some brand new Smittybuilt fender flares. The jeep looks great and should prove to be incredibly capable on the trails. Girls, dont be afraid to get dirty too! Check out Hannah arms deep in this jeep.
