    Timgco's 2012 JKU Build "Tail Rated 2.0"

    Going to be starting on the new rig this week. I will be doing some basic things to start, than will be building in phases.

    Here's the info on the rig:

    2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited

    This rig has the Rubicon package that includes 410 gearing, Dana 44 axles front and rear, 3.6L Pentastar V6 with a 5 speed auto Trans.

    I started some pics on another thread on a test drive review, but thought I would start out a build page.

    I look forward to this build even though I'm not exactly a Jeep fan but I am really interested in seeing how the new Warn VR line winch does for you. What 37" M/T's are you planning on running?

    STT's or KM2's. I have brand new 37" STT to pick up still. I ordered them for the H2, but obviously never put them on. So I will more than likely use those if I don;t sell them. I would prefer the KM2. I have been really wanting to try those.

    Looking forward to this build. Can't remember if it was here or elsewhere, but supposedly there's an issue with the 2012s going into low power mode if regeared? Is that a mod you plan on doing later?

    With hunting season here and ski season around the corner, I just want the 35's for now. I won't regear until I put the 37's on next Spring.

    The issue with going into limp mode was a computer issue. That issue has a fix and will be available to purchase through AEV very soon. I was told I could send mine in now if I was in a bind.

    For now though, my 410's will be good with 35's. the new engine/ trans is comp. to the older engine/ trans with 488's. So, we'll see how it goes.

    My latest mod is the Power Tank 10lb kit with rollbar mount. I put this in the 1st week I purchased the JK. However, I added the Drake Billet fire extinguisher mount by punching two holes through it and setting it up so the pull pin was easy to get to. I could have used another rollbar mount on the pssd, but did not wany and possible blind spots...plus it just looked cleaner to mount over there.


    I put heat shrink tape over the clamps to look a little more cleaned up and to protect the extinguisher from getting scraped up.

    Im gonna definitely watch this build. Tim all your builds are always cool and interesting. I like the hot headliner kit idea. In my eyes JK's definitely deserve "cool points" for having a removable roof but one thing I noticed in my brothers JK is that is does get hot as hell or extremely cold. Hopefully that headliner will resolves those issues by insulating the interior
