A 2013 Jeep Wrangler JKU Sport 4dr 4x4 build by @lmanthegreat

My toy and my mistress. My first vehicle was a YJ Wrangler when I was 16. I dreamed of building it into an off-road machine but I didnt have the means or knowledge to do it. I am glad to be back in the Jeep world with my JKU and now I can build it how I want (as much as the wife lets me get away with anyway...). Still lots of plans for this girl in the future. I don't want to go super crazy with 40s and built axles and all of that stuff. I envision 37" tires with lockers and a great suspension setup with lots of goodies, and perhaps some elements of an overland setup so I can take my daughter on Jeep camping trips
