  • Anvil JK-8 Rubicon

    jeep-wrangler-jk-8-anvil-driver-side-frontThe JK-8 Rubicon, mentioned in a previous post arrived back from paint late last week. Since then, it has had a 2.5” AEV Lift Kit added and 35” BFGoodrich All-Terrain tires. This JK-8 is not slated to become a farm truck like the 2015 Tank model, however, it is just as capable, and comes with all of the Rubicon options, such as the 4:1 Rock-Track Transfer Case, Dana 44's and Electronic Lockers. However, the 2.5” lift and 35s will allow for more ground clearance than the Tank model, which was shipped out with a simple leveling kit and the stock 32” M/T tires.jeep-wrangler-jk-8-anvil-passenger-sideOnce the vehicle returns from paint, it proceeds straight to the garage bay. The lift kit is then installed; also on the build sheet are Llumar window tinting, and a trailer hitch. With the stock tow rating of the base JKU, this JK-8 can tow all sorts of small trailers, hauling dirt bikes, 4-wheelers, or small boats with ease. In addition to the towing capabilities, the JK-8 also features a 44-inch by 50-inch steel bed, perfect for stowing tents, folding chairs, or other camping gear. Meanwhile, the removable freedom panels and half-cab top ensure that the driver and occupant of the JK-8 can still enjoy the classic open air experience of the Jeep Wrangler.jeep-wrangler-jk-8-anvil-driver-side-rear-quarter-bedThe JK-8 Pickup Conversion is an official MOPAR kit, and features the stamped sheet metal body panels for the new truck bed, the steel bed itself, freedom panel assemblies, a fiberglass half-cab hardtop with a sliding rear window, a fiberglass bulkhead, and unique JK-8 badges. After the kit is installed, the truck bed is Line-X'd, and a fold down tailgate, while not part of the kit itself, is certainly optional.jeep-wrangler-jk-8-anvil-front-passenger-sideIf you are interested in converting your JK Unlimited, or ordering a JK-8 through us, be sure to contact Reggie Perry direct at 828-406-3031.

  • Product of the Week – GraBars

    This week, we're showcasing a new product line from GraBarsUSA! Aptly named, these GraBars bolt on grab handles are a great addition to your Jeep Wrangler. Mounted at the top corners of the windshield frame, or at the factory roll bar forward of the rear seat, they are perfect for an assist while entering or exiting from the vehicle, and also provide a solid object to hold onto while offroad and on the trail!RedGrabarsCab1GraBars are available for both YJ and TJ Wranglers, as well as the newest generation, the Wrangler JK and JK Unlimited 4-door. GraBars mount to existing OEM holes, and require no drilling for installation. However, if you have the plastic trim around the top and sides of the windshield, present on later-model TJ's and the current generation JK and JKU, slight modification may be required. On the JK and JKU, GraBars are offered for both front and rear occupants, as seen in the third image down. All GraBar variants, including those for the older generation Wranglers, can be ordered with dual layered black, red, or pink rubber grips.FrontBlack2FrontPassPink1GraBars are made right here in the USA, and are constructed from 3/4” solid steel, not tubing, feature a lifetime warranty from defects and workmanship, and come with 12.9 Strength Black Oxide Steel Bolts (for the OEM mounting points). The GraBars powder coat includes UV protection, so even with the top off for days on end, rest assured, that the finish will not be faded or otherwise damaged by the sun.RedGrabars12With many owners choosing to add lift kits and larger, offroad tires to their Jeep Wranglers, GraBars provide a high quality, easy to reach handle that greatly helps in climbing into or out of your ride. Of course, they work just as well with a stock vehicle, and even better, when used in conjunction with a set of side rails or steps, give you the ultimate hand and footholds for your Jeep. Check out our entire line of GraBars products at RubiTrux.com today!BackerBoard2

     

     

     

  • Line-X Exterior Protective Coating

    Here at RubiTrux, we offer the option of having the exterior of your build coated in Line-X. This gives your vehicle a unique look, plus the added resistance to scratching or marring the appearance of your ride on the trail. Cleaning the vehicle is a snap, just pressure wash the exterior; no need to worry about waxing, or a chipping clear coat or fading paint job down the road. The current make of Line-X features UV protection, meaning it will not fade, crack, or peel over time.custom-line-x-jeep-wrangler-rubicon-angleOn the exterior, we can add Line-X to the body, hard top, or fenders of your build; with the Line-X, everything is still removable and interchangeable, so if you want to switch out the fenders at a later date, or add a soft top instead of the factory hard top, it will not negatively impact the Line-X coating. If you want the interior floor pans Line-X'd as well, this is certainly an option, although many customers choose to retain the factory OEM carpet set over the more spartan interior afforded by the Line-X.2014-black-linex-front-angle-3146022015-custom-jeep-wrangler-jk-line-x-anvil

    As seen above, for the Jeep to be coated, the stock vehicle must be completely stripped down, and then reassembled afterwards. We can paint match to all factory Jeep colors, should you wish to retain your OEM paint code. Above, the factory Jeep colors of Anvil (bottom), and black (top), are shown. Afterwards, the vehicle is brought back into the shop, and the lift kit, tires, bumpers, and all of the off-road accessories are added.custom-line-x-jeep-wrangler-anvil-sideWhether you are looking to protect your Jeep from brush and rock rash on the trail, or from an errant bicycle or piece of lawn equipment while parked inside the garage, a full Line-X protective coating has you covered! If you're in town, stop by and check out our inventory, we usually have a Line-X Wrangler in stock; ask about pricing and options over the phone, or at the shop, today!
