Christmas that year brought him all kinds of goodies: Rampage Full Width Recovery Bumper, SuperWinch 10,000, ACE Engineering Rock Sliders, Rigid Dually LED Spot Lights, Rugged Ridge Mesh Grill Insert, MOLLE Panel Tailgate Table/Seatback/Wheel Well Covers, Antenna X 13″, shovel, axe, recovery straps and shackles and all kinds of other little mods.
The weekend after Thanksgiving 2012 our brother-in-law came down to help Mike install his lift. He went with a TeraFlex 2.5″ coil lift with Rancho 9000xl shocks. They spent the whole weekend working on it, taking their time, stopping to enjoy some adult beverages and just having fun. Man, what a difference a lift makes!!!
Once War Pig had his new lift, we needed a way to get up in that bad boy! Enter Welcome Distributing’s GraBars™. These handles put all the others to shame. They are built of solid steel and feel STOUT. I’ve seen pictures of guys hanging off a jeep on the side of a hill by the GraBars™!!!
Our obsession with jeeps started back in October 2012, when Mike ordered his 2013 Billet Silver Sport-S Unlimited. This brand new jeep would become the original War Pig and the start of our love affair with jeeps.
War Pig’s first mod was new shoes. He started out with the stock steelies, but Mike knew he wanted to run bigger tires with the anticipated lift. His new shoes actually came in before we even took delivery of War Pig! MBTKO 15s, wrapped with 33″ DuraTracs. We were actually able to get all five new tires in the back of the jeep, with the seats folded down.
War Pig Off Road came about as a result of our own love for modding our jeeps. We enjoy working on lifts, suspensions and other things, but there’s nothing better than spending an hour or two out in the shop adding a cheap or easy mod and getting that instant gratification.
Jeeps are like legos for grownups! Add something here, change something there, and make yours your own custom rig.
