Meet Gadget – My 2008 Jeep JK
How was Gadget Born
Once I bought my Gladiator, I shifted my old daily driver to my off-road rig. I originally bought the JK brand new, Nov 2007. It was time. 🙂 But I didn’t want to get rid of it (it had a lifetime warranty and such).
Gadget is a 2008 Wrangler Unlimited X (JK)
- A 4” Rough Country lift
- Upgraded Shocks
- Dana 30 front axle with 512 gears
- Dana 44 rear axle with 512 gears
- on 37″ hummer tires.
- Bulletproof phone mounts
- Gaia GPS for trail mapping on an IPad Mini
Yes, I need better axles.
I’m working on upgrading my axles to 1Ton axles
Dana60 front, and 14bolt rear.
I’ll re-gear these to 5.13 also, and add air lockers.
This upgrade is going to take a BUNCH of work.. I’ll post some videos and pics as I go along, so be sure to keep watch on our instagram and this blog.
For many years to come...
This Jeep has been good to me. I hope to take care of her for many years to come, and she’ll keep on keeping on.
And I promise to break less things.. hence the bigger axles 🙂
