Sorry, Does NOT work on mobile phone.
This Rubicon has some epic DIY stuff going on in the rear, actually the entire Jeep Wrangler Rubicon is kitted to the absolute MAX. Custom body work, custom wrap, complete driveline upgrades on 37 inch tyres!!! The list of stuff just keeps going on this beast.
In my words Brad from Trailrecon has built the ultimate hybrid Jeep handling both long desert runs at speed to slow crawling on the roughest terrain you could find in the states.
Sit back and enjoy.

Brad’s modification tips:
Don’t modify anything until you’ve used it stock and understand your current limitations.
Things to lookout for with this model Jeep Rubicon:
Crank position sensor failure are a common issues
Top 3 tips with the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon:
1. She’s heavy, so good throttle and brake control over obstacles is essential
2. Check the torque specs on the suspension… had many come lose over the years.
