Part II: Our First JK Project gets Axles and New Suspension

You may remember our very first JK project, this 2007 JK Unlimited Rubicon with a Burnsville Off-Road SRT 6.1L Hemi V-8. The Jeep’s owner, Hyde Park, Utah, resident Ed Fisher, has been using it as a daily driver since.

It was time for some upgrades.

Shane Barrington, owner of Thunder Mountain Truck Outfitters in Logan, Utah, assigned master fabricator Dave Hansen to modernize Ed’s already nice 6.1L JK using some of the best parts available. These parts included Currie Rock Jock 60 front and rearends, an EVO Manufacturing 4-inch DoubleD long-arm suspension system with Fox shocks, 40-inch BFG KM2 tires, and more. Once Thunder Mountain was finished, we had to bring this JK Unlimited to you.

Check out the photos and captions to see how a magazine project Jeep was improved.
