Picked up my Rubicon today, thanks to the assistance of the club's very own Bob and Stewart. Very impressed, it's the first Jeep I have owned after a lifetime of Land Rovers. I've just driven it from Horsham Jeep (excellent treatment from them by Dean), and have dropped it off at PB Customs near Oundle for a few modifications......

 

Sorry about the poor pics, but I was chomping at the bit to get going!

 

I'll post pics of the mods as they happen hopefully.

I wish! Lots of AEV kit going on it though, and when I was looking for a reg for it, I found this was available, and cheap!

So, having picked the Jeep up from Horsham, it was driven straight to PB Customs in Oundle, and here are the first pics from Paul at PB. My missus is somewhat mystified as to why I'd buy a perfectly good brand new car, then take it straight to be dismantled. I'm sure she will come around once she sees the finished article. Although this is just stage one.....

I remember the glorious days of changing parts on a pristine chassis...bliss.  Now it's a face full of mud simply walking within 5 feet of it with a socket wrench.

Ah...! the pristine chassis  :icon_flower:

It's not the mud Steve...... it's the age! ( the vehicle, not the mechanic  :icon_e_wink: ) Change out the bumper on an 18 month JK and every bolt and screw comes out and goes back sweet without requiring copious amounts of swearing and WD40 and resulting in sheared bolts and rounded heads  :grrrrrr:

It's all a different story on a 20+ year old Jeep, not looking forward to the upcoming YJ suspension lift.

 

Pleased ( and surprised ) to see the YJ lurking in the background there at PB even if it is minus a few parts.

 

.............sorry for the digression  :icon_redface: great looking JK Andrew and great choice in the Rubicon which you will love  :happy: . Looking forward to seeing the results of the build.

Cheers

What's your vies on the Dinitrol?

 

Meaning how its applied, how it protects, how hard wearing is it?

Norman, Paul at PB Customs (who is doing the build) recommended the Dinitrol, and I totally trust his judgement, but I know very little about it, just went on his recommendation.

 

Bob, the Landy mates; some think I'm mad, some are looking at buying Jeeps!

Great stuff Dinitrol, Paul did mine last year and looks great still. Makes wash down after off roading very easy as the first just drops off when you jet wash. Self healing too so if you scrape it no problem :great:

Skid plates are from 'Rival'.

 

I went for bead locks as they appeared to be the best road legal wheels available!
