    I have a 2003 Rubicon that I love. Last September a temporary lack of talent on my part resulted in my Jeep going turtle. The insurance company declared it a total but I did not want to let it go so I made a deal to keep my Jeep and take a settlement. The following is a pictorial of the Jeep after the roll over to what it is now.
    I finally have it back and during the rebuild I was able to do do most of things that I had been wanting to do to the Jeep.

    The mods that it now has are as follows:
    Super Swamper tires 265/80 16 tires (32.5”)
    M&R 1 1/2” lift springs
    Bilstien 5100 shocks
    Currie Anti-rock sway bar
    Poison Spider complete cage
    Interior grab handles welded to cage
    Rokmen 1/2” body lift
    Rokmen belly skid with tummy tuck
    Rokmen gas tank skid
    Front and rear rock crawler style bumpers
    Ramsey Platnium 9000# winch
    Rigid Dually D2 LED lights
    LED headlights
    Spare tire relocation
    Bed tred complete interior liner
    New factory soft top
    Lowrance 4HDM GPS
    Kenwood 522 head unit
    New radiator
    New waterpump
    New serpentine belt and tensioner
    New hoses
    New plugs
    Uniden CB radio

    I am really happy how it all turned out, going to Moab UT next week for the annual Easter Jeep Safari.

    Silver really is a damn good looking color on these rubis. Awesome job with the rebuild, it really does look showroom quality. Simple yet rugged, looks awesome and not overdone.

    Unfortunately it does now have a salvage title but I don’t intend on getting rid of it anytime soon so not a big deal.

    Excellent work and a great save. In my mind, this is a keeper that stays in your family. Salvage title? Yah, whatever.
