Last year I decided to trade in my 2010 Audi A4 S-Line Avante for a 2015 Jeep jku for several reasons..... https://gyazo.com/eee2286eb73d89cff5bbd787d84bbad2 Family has grown to 4 140 lb American bulldog which is the size of a small cow https://gyazo.com/4a92f6a8f908d893a446662c42d0d8f3 and well because Calgary......an arctic dust pit that lives in winter conditions nearly 10 months of the year, and has the worst roads and snow removal in Canada so a tank is needed to conquer these elements lol And we decided that we wanted to explore our beautiful backyard of the Canadian Rockies more It was hard to let the Audi go, as I absolutely loved everything about it minus the maintenance cost but it needed to be done. Being a Mopar fan and having a hell of a discount through work on Chrysler products we found the Jeep JKU would fit our family and exploring needs. Overall impressions and feedback of the Jeep..... Cons Worst handling road vehicle ever!...on windy days it's like trying to control a kite in a hurricane Terrible on gas Sluggish High insurance rates Pros When modified properly they can look bad ass! Tons of mods available on the market one of the best resale values Nothing beats driving around the city or cottage country on a hot day with the roof and doors off! It will conquer any situation you put in front of it......except street racing and going fast Shortly after buying the Jeep I found some other Jeepers who introduced me to off-roading and over landing....after my first trail run I knew I was hooked and the modding began. The stock Jeep Jk is nothing flattering....looks like a filing cabinet on wheels with a garbage can sized exhaust hanging out the back, leather seats that fit 5, nav and a decent size boot so I knew I had to give this ride some personality. Suspension upgrades: Teraflex 2.5" lift Teraflex Sport lower control arms Teraflex HD steering stabilizer Bilstein 5100 shocks Widened the axel width by 4" Wheels: 18' HD matte black rims with 33" Goodyear Duratracs Under the hood: Mopar CAI intake Dynomax offroad exhaust Superchips F5 flashpaq tune Lighting: Trucklite LED headlights x2 4" windshield spot lights interior led light swap Rubicon rock rails Future planned upgrades: Regear to 4.21 roof rack Pedal commander http://www.extremeterrain.com/jeep-pedal-commander-throttle-controller-0717.html hidden winch on stock bumper and if i win the lottery......super charged lol My goal with this build is to make it look semi stock while giving it a beefy look, have good road handling characteristics, a little more UMPH and a suspension that's capable of taking me into the the back country to fish and camp while under load..........It's NOT a Rock Crawler!

Anyone got any builds in progress or trips planned?
