Vehicle Overview:

  • Year: 2018
  • Make: Jeep
  • Model: Unlimited Sport JL
  • Color: Pristine White

The Build Process:

  1. Lift Kit Installation: We started by installing a 2.5″ ReadyLift Lift Kit. This kit not only adds height but also improves the overall stance of the Jeep, making it more formidable on and off the road. The 2.5″ ReadyLift Lift Kit doesn’t just elevate the Jeep’s clearance; it enhances the overall driving experience. Ideal for off-road enthusiasts, it provides a higher viewpoint and increased underbody protection.
  2. Toyo Tire Upgrade: Next, we fitted the Jeep with Toyo Open Country AT tires, size 35/12.5/R17. These tires are known for their durability and all-terrain performance, providing excellent traction in various conditions. The Toyo Open Country AT tires are not just about rugged looks. They are engineered for durability, offering superior grip and stability on both wet and dry surfaces, making them an excellent choice for all-season driving.
  3. Matte Black Wheel Customization: To complement the lifted stature and rugged tires, we chose Custom Wheels Overland Matte Black, sized 17×8. The matte black finish adds a sleek, modern touch to the Jeep’s overall white color scheme.The Overland Matte Black wheels are chosen for their durability and stylish appearance. They are lightweight yet robust, contributing to better handling and fuel efficiency.
  4. Mount and Road Force Balance: Precision is key in any build. We ensured the wheels and tires were mounted and balanced using Road Force technology for optimal performance and longevity.
  5. Suspension Enhancement: We installed Front and Rear FOX 2.0 Shocks for improved ride quality and handling. These shocks are designed to handle the toughest terrains while providing a comfortable rideUpgrading to FOX 2.0 Shocks transforms the Jeep’s suspension system. They provide a smoother ride on uneven terrains and reduce the wear and tear on the vehicle, ensuring long-term reliability.
  6. Xpel Window Tinting: To finish off, we applied Xpel Window Tint for added privacy and protection from UV rays. The tint also complements the Jeep’s new, more aggressive look . The Xpel Window Tint offers more than just aesthetic enhancement. It provides UV protection, reduces interior heat, and adds an extra layer of privacy and security.

The Outcome:

The result of this build is a 2018 Jeep Unlimited Sport JL that not only looks stunning but is also ready to tackle any adventure thrown its way. The combination of the lift kit, tires, wheels, and shocks elevates the Jeep’s off-road readiness, while the window tint adds a final touch of style and practicality.
