Default G & D's new (to us) TJ Rubi
We're super stoked to introduce Clifford's newly adopted baby brother! So far these 2 are playing nice, Clifford even moved over a smidge. 2006 Jeep TJ Wrangler Rubicon w/ 65,000 miles.

Jeep specs: 5.5" Rock Krawler X-Factor long arm suspension, 5:13 gears, new 35" BFG MTs on new black steel wheels, front and rear Toys by Troy bumpers and swing out tire carrier, 52" light bar w/ fancy colors, 15" light bar, rock lights controlled by a phone app that change colors, flash, etc., a killer stereo with a big sub woofer in the back. Super clean for a 12 year old TJ!


Really don't know if we're keeping all the lights and such. We haven't driven it much yet because we need to get the drive shafts balanced.

Congratulations Zalmans!

Modifications? So far I see custom front bumper, stadium lighting and mud terrains of the 35" variety..

Interesting that you should ask; we have no idea. Nothing has come to us as yet.

I updated the first post with the info, but here it is:

Jeep specs: 5.5" Rock Krawler X-Factor long arm suspension, 5:13 gears, new 35" BFG MTs on new black steel wheels, front and rear Toys by Troy bumpers and swing out tire carrier, 52" light bar w/ fancy colors, 15" light bar, rock lights controlled by a phone app that change colors, flash, etc., a killer stereo with a big sub woofer in the back.

I haven't had any opportunities to take more or better pictures; we haven't even driven it anywhere yet, because G is correcting some driveline vibrations first and foremost. Here's a couple more from behind so at least you can see the wheels, top, etc. Maybe I'm a little partial, but I think it's a damn good-looking rig.
