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.
