Really enjoying the Jeep life and the way everybody can build their rig the way they want to. Picked up our first Jeep in Feb. It was a stock JKU Rubicon at the time. It's turned into an on going build (aren't they all???) that we call the RubiKhan. We're learning that JEEP really does mean Just Empty Every Pocket, but it sure is fun! Here's what we've been up to in the last few months...

Here is where it began...

Three days later we were on the trails at Rausch Creek and learned just how capable a stock Jeep can be.

Then we enjoyed the sands of Assateague National Seashore for some OSV driving...

But we wanted to see how much better a modified Jeep can be so we added an AEV 3.5" DualSport Suspension lift with the help of my good friend ShockCrawler...

And 35" BFG Ko2s

With spring and sunshine arriving, we added a Bestop sunrider...

We drove around for several weeks without a spare on the back and then upgraded to a LoD rear bumper and tire carrier.

Of course, as Tennesseans, this was a pretty important upgrade for us too...

...add a stubby antennae replacement and front and rear grabars and that's where we are. Of course, we have endless ideas of what's next but I'd like to get a LoD front bumper to match the rear with winch and lights. What I'd really like to do is get an off-road trailer with roof top tent but we'll have to see.

We've only had one NoVA Jeepers ride so far (Rausch Creek last month) but had so much fun that we can't wait for more. We did spend a weekend with Shock Crawler (Don and Monica) driving down Skyline Drive and then running Peters Mill Run the following day.

Appreciate any feedback or ideas for future upgrades!

Super excited to see the new decals and see the front bumper and winch, after that I think it's all personal pref.  I love being part of a group with so many various types of builds…really gives you an idea of why the Jeep Wrangler is such an iconic symbol.

Nice! Looking forward to see the changes. It can get crazy real quick.
