It should come as no surprise that we love cars – all cars from big to small and everything in between, but one of the things we love the most about cars is the ability to customize them and make them a real extension of you, the person who spends the most time sitting in that driver’s seat. It doesn’t really matter if you’re driving on the highway, the track, or the trail – everyone deserves to truly love what they drive, so with that in mind we’re starting up a new blog series here to showcase the build process of one of the most popular and customized vehicles on Long Island, the Jeep Wrangler.
Meet the first subject in our build series – this is a 2019 Jeep Wrangler JL Unlimited Rubicon and we’re going to be putting it through it’s paces, breaking it down and building it back up, and you are going to get to follow along with the whole process.
Our plan for this Jeep JL is to keep things clean and classy but still super functional because after all, it’s a Jeep and Jeep’s are meant to be driven through anything. Let’s go over the build plan for this one and lay out some of our thoughts for how this is all going to pan out.
One of the very first things we’re planning to attack is the interior of this Jeep, which came from the factory with a rather boring light tan color that just doesn’t go with much, so we’ll be working with the good folks over at Katzkin to spice things up a bit and pick a color that fits a bit better.
After that we’ll be working on upgrading the exterior appearance of this Wrangler to make it a little more unique, most specifically we’ll be upgrading to a new set of Fuel wheels and tires and a Bodyguard bumper and fender package. From there, we’ll be upgrading the ride of our build with a custom fabricated air suspension to provide both an easily adjustable ride height for on and off-road use and also an increased ride comfort for those daily highway miles.
We’ve of course got some more goodies in store for this project like a full lighting upgrade package, custom JL Audio stereo, as well as a few more surprises.
The best part of this whole build? We’re taking careful consideration to make sure our entire build is easily reversible so for any of you following along with a leased Jeep, we can take these same modifications to your Jeep and then help you restore it right back to stock when it’s time to turn it back in for a new one.
What kind of modifications do you want to see done to this Jeep Wrangler to make it stand out from the crowd? We love hearing your ideas and can’t wait for you to see what we have in store for this project.
