I couldn't resist keeping this jeep stock for any longer ...so I'm building it up for expedition use (camping/extended road-trips/towing/mild off-road)

Here is what I'm working with as a base:

2008 Black XK Limited Commander
-5.7 Hemi V8
-545RFE 5spd Trans
-NV245 Tcase w/ 2.72:1 Low Range
-Electronic LSD front and Rear
-3.73 Gearing
-Limited interior/exterior package
-Mygig Nav/Hard drive/DVD/Rear Screen/Backup Camera
-Tow Pkg. Rated for 7200lbs w/ sway control
-HD Roof Rails w/ snowboard mounts
-Seating for 7

My plans for the build:

-2" Old Man Emu suspension lift w/ springs and struts
-Bilstein 5150 Rear Shocks
-32" BFG MT Tires
-17" Rubicon Wheels Powder Coated Black w/ TPSs
-1.5" Spidertrax Wheel Spacers

-Rocky Road Outfitters Super Sliders
-Rusty's Off-road 1/4" strut spacers
-4xGuard Front skid
-4xGuard Matrix Bumper/Brush Guard/Front Receiver
-4xGuard Belly Skid
-Electronic Trailer Brake Controller
-Custom Computer Workstation
-Forward Mounted HD Video Camera
-Rear Custom Bed / 3rd row removed with slide out storage unit or Roof Mounted Tent Setup
-Aluminum Custom Roof rack and Custom Tire Carrier w/ Aux. Driving Lights
-Dual Battery Setup
-Front/Rear Remote Winch Setup
-Lock-pick For My-gig/Nav
-K&N Panel Filter
-Magnaflow Cat-Back Exhaust
-Superchips Flashpaq Tuner
-Front Windows Tinted

RED INDICATES PARTS ORDERED OR I HAVE READY TO INSTALL OR HAVE INSTALLED
As the parts start arriving I will update what has been added to the vehicle...I hope to include video/pictures/and install write-ups as I get closer and closer to my end goal. Thanks that is all for now.

I'm trying to decide if I will need to install my 1/4 inch leveling spacers with the OME struts/coils I just purchased. Also how are the JBA UCA's? Was it easy to get the XK aligned after they were installed. Also, are your tires wearing normal? Im thinking about buy them friday.
