2023 Jeep Rubicon Gone Wild, BUILT BY DOETSCH OFF-ROAD w/3,200 miles
Starting with a 2023 Wrangler Rubicon featuring the HEMI 392 with only 50 miles on the odometer, we immediately stripped it down to the tub & frame. After both axles were removed so we could easily weld on an ARTEC Industries truss, c-gussets and front lower control arm skid kit, a set of Yukon Gear & Axle gears were massaged in and capped with custom set of bronze accented HD differential covers. Some RCV Performance axle shafts also made their way into the axle housings so that Dominic wouldn't have a fear of snapping u-joints with the 470HP behind this rig. Finishing off the axle was our Doetsch Off-Road in-house built 2.5 TON 7075 aluminum steering kit, featuring a custom steel stabilizer clamp which made room for a 2.2 Series 3-way adjustable Falcon Shocks steering stabilizer. Next, all of the factory control arm brackets were sliced and grinded off like they never happened, so that the fresh TeraFlex Suspensions long arm brackets could be welded in their place. It was also an opportunity to replace the factory exhaust with a Magnaflow Rock Crawler cat-back system that eliminates the quad-tipped boat anchor muffler for a pair of hi-tucked tips. And since the new long arm brackets were in place, we had to modify a set of Next Venture Motorsports LLC's aluminum skid plates to coexist with all the new suspension gear. A pair of Adams Driveshaft & Off Road 1350
driveshafts then reconnected the updated axles to the Jeep's 2.72:1 transfer case, followed up by a set of 4.5" lift springs and TeraFlex's Alpine IR long arms.
We've installed quite a few of the Suspension Direct, Inc. E-CLIK shocks that feature all 4 electronically controlled piggyback shocks which use a replacement 4WD shift knob with a dial and LED screen to control. They are a perfect match for this build since Dominic will use the Jeep as a daily driver, rock monster and to haul his off-road camping trailer.
Tires & wheels came through as a set of 20x10 true beadlocks from KMC Wheels, which we colored in 392 Bronze with a textured black beadlock ring. The tires are 38x13.50 Nitto Trail Grapplers.
For armor, Dominic chose a set of MotoBilt's front and rear steel fenders, which we powdercoated black and then color matched the top sides to Sarge Green. A Motobilt Crusher Series front & rear bumper also received our signature black textured powdercoat, with the front getting a WARN VR EVO Series 10k winch with synthetic line, as well as a FACTOR 55 Flat Link. The rear received a pair of diffused D-Series LED back-up lights from Rigid Industries. For rock rails, we chose Poison Spyder's Rocker Knockers, which were welded to the frame and had inserts color matched to Sarge Green. The matching full size spare tire is held up using a Motobilt Heavy Duty body-mounted tire carrier.
On the inside, a Rock Hard 4x4 Sport Cage was colored in 392 Bronze, and includes the front section as well as the B to C pillar support bracket. Extra cargo capacity was added via a Rhino Rack Backbone system which supports any weight put on top of the Pioneer Platform, by transferring it to the tub, allowing you to carry hundreds of pounds in cargo or a roof top tent. We also added a full on-board air system using an ARB twin compressor mounted under the front passenger seat, with a quick chuck within easy reach.
Since we eliminated the factory fender mounted turn signals and because the 3/4 LEDs now in the fenders just aren't enough, we installed Oracle Lighting's 9" LED Switchback headlight which provides a Daytime Running Light (DRL) as well as an amber turn signal. Oracle's Sidetrack LED fender lights also made their way into the build, providing a side mounted amber turn signal and white LED approach light.
Out back, Oracle's Flush Mount LED taillights were color matched to blend in with the Sarge Green paint. A set of six Rigid LED rock lights were strategically placed around the Jeep, providing nighttime ground illumination with the press of a button.
A few aesthetic details included painting the grille inserts and dash in 392 Bronze, along with the fender vents and some other odds & ends, without going overboard. We also added a pair of color matched mirror covers to break up the black plastic.
