Behind the Scenes – Jeep JL Rubicon Build

For the past week, we had a first in a long time: a Jeep. This time, though, it was a Rubicon that already had a lift and the wheels/tires already installed. We installed new parts from Fab Fours all the way around, which was very fitting for the specific wheel and tire setup that the Jeep’s owner had gone with. Fab Fours is known for their “in your face” design with the idea of “it’s not for you,” so with the extremely aggressive street-style, the old-school offroader types will definitely throw shade at the build. Overall, I kinda like it. No, it’s probably not best for the trails of Moab or some extreme rock crawling, but it’s still a Jeep, and it’s still on 40-inch tires, making it very capable on most Florida trails, regardless of how big the wheels might be.

Anyhow, during the build process, I captured these images of the team’s progress as there was a lot of work to do, and with the time crunch, it was great to see everyone come together to make sure that everything got done.

All photos were shot on the Fujifilm X-T2 with the 7artisans 35mm f/1.2 lens. Also, most of them were shot for Instagram Stories in mind, so don’t hate me for having so many portrait-oriented photos.
