New JT Rubicon!

After driving my Tomb Raider edition Rubicon for 16 years, I was given a 2020 Rubicon JT for my birthday from my Mother. I am excited to mod it mildly as it replaced my Honda Pilot and will fill in for it as daily driver and weekend fun vehicle.

I plan to initially run a 2.5" spacer lift as the departure angle appears poor and the front plastic bumper doesn't look trail rated.

Mac - I have followed your articles now for decades. I am in good company knowing that you also have a Gladiator and will also likely publish articles as you have for your pristine TJ.
