We ran the main buildup feature on Blue, our 2007 JK Wrangler Unlimited, in the March 2009 issue. Since then, we've made a few additions and changes.
For those of you who didn't see the original feature, Blue has Dynatrac ProRock 60 front and rear ends with 5.38 gears, an ARB Air Locker in back and a Detroit Locker up front, Mopar/Rubicon Express long arm suspension system, and a 5.7L Hemi with 6.1L intake built by Burnsville Off-Road. We made one mistake in the first feature, though. The Hemi was installed using the complete AEV Hemi conversion kit, not just the AEV harness as we originally reported.
Project vehicles are living things and Blue is no exception. Work continues to make Blue a reliable and competent backcountry explorer. Check out the photos to see what we've done now.
