We're adding an ARB 2500 and room to our '14 JKUR and would like to see how others have mounted their awnings. We also have a 2 door and may swap it back and forth.
I'm hoping there are some creative mounts that don't involve a rack.
Thanks in advance!
Originally we saw the Teraflex Jeep with orange wheels and thought WTH.
Then I researched why on earth anyone would put orange wheels on a Jeep, I found out that was a stock color combo way back when on the Willys.
Next thing I know it's my wife's wallpaper on her laptop. Shortly...
Today was the last of the cutting, trimmed up the C.
Dropping the axles off in a few days to get sand blasted, they'll powder coat the wheels there too.
For those that have never torn down a D60 or 14 bolt here are a couple of pictures of the pinion size (3.73)
Our '14 JKUR is used as our pack mule when we take longer trips with both Jeeps. Usually we'll have one of our adult kids and their spouse drive it, but now our oldest grand kids are almost driving age.
For that reason we're going to add some strength to the 'ol '14 with A D60 from a 2005 F250...
I run without a top/doors for more than half the year, last year it was March thru October.
I'm not set on a Wrangler as much as I'm set on a vehicle giving me that top/doors off experience.
So I'll continue to build and modify my Wrangler for many, many years.
We used the kit from ACE on our 2014, it has a 3rd brake light and license light.
The kit came with everything including plug-n-play wiring for easy install, and it's held up great for years.
