Project Rock Recon

2012 Rubicon Unlimited

Project Rock Recon is designed to be a military inspired build, built by an active duty U.S. Army Soldier. While in Afghanistan, the build was inspired by observing the all-terrain, max personnel carrying capacity of MRAP (Mine Resistant Ambush Protected) family of vehicles like the International MaxxPro and Oshkosh M-ATV. Another military vehicle that provided inspiration to the build was the M93A1 CBRN (Chemical, Biological, Radiological & Nuclear) Recon vehicle lovingly known as the "Fox". Notable features of those vehicles include V-shaped hulls, full width bumpers, blast proof axles, massive tires, and heavy body armor. Each vehicle was designed with function, as opposed to form, as the top priority. The owner of this JK has spent years rockcrawling in Southern California, but the build is clearly inspired by a more expeditionary approach that can still handle moderate rock gardens. The starting platform is a 2012 Jeep Rubicon Unlimited with the highly welcomed 3.6L Pentastar motor, and a 5 speed auto transmission. The leather interior and navigation come as welcomed refinements to the wrangler line since this Soldier gets more than enough austarity at work. When it came time to picking a color, it should be no surprise that dark green was the color of choice.

The 2012 JK currently sports a 4.5 inch AEV Premium lift, Tera Flex SpeedBump bump stops, Bilstien shocks, expedition one rear bumper/tire carrier, and 37 inch BFG Krawlers on ATX Ledge wheels. Rock Recon is also now sporting a Banks Engineering Stinger kit (exhaust and CAI). A front axle project took place in late December where we beefed up the D44 with a fully compliment of TeraFlex axle sleeves, and gussets. We also added some Synergy Suspension ball joints and PSC diff covers at that time. A skid plate project with the addition of Offroad Evolution's ProTek skid system and a PSC evap canister skid took place recently as well. Future plans call for a winch, cage kit, and stronger rockers. ATW!
