Late to the Party: theksmith's 2016 JK Unlimited Rubicon (Gadget)

Recommended Posts

painted the center caps on my new rims a textured black to try and match the wheels. the Black Rhino text was around the ring of the cap, plus their symbol was in the middle, plus the text is on a spoke - too much free advertising! i left the text on the spoke... for now.

It drives me nuts how much these companies splash their logos all over everything.

 

The “de-badging” turned out nice!

did a quick paint re-fresh on the front bumper, it was looking a little rough (pitted/chipped). Krylon Satin Black spray paint is my goto for all the miscellaneous black metal areas.

Nice! Do you rattle can it or use a sprayer? Need to do something about mine soon too.

been working on extending my custom spare water/fuel bracket to be able to mount the can a little higher if i'm on a difficult trail (so the bottom corner doesn't catch on any boulders or ledges):

finished with that little project! here's the original bracket i made back in 2018 to mount a Geri container on the Teraflex Alpha Tire Carrier Hinge:

and now, extended upwards:

so my fuel or water tank can still site about the same place as before, or i can quickly move it up a notch if i'm on a difficult run and worried about dragging the tail.

 

normal:

high-clearance mode:

i also drilled one of the Geri latches to fit a small lock so as to discourage the can from just up and walking away!

the Geri water/fuel cans and latches are made by Expedition One.

finally got most of the mud cleaned off from our Woodchute Trail run - there really wasn't a lot, but i swear it seemed like it was Elmer's Glue based!

crazy what a difference a couple weeks of monsoons has made, everything is growing and green!
