ExtremeTerrain Builds A JK Beach Cruiser

Video Host Ryan Huck Modifies A JK Wrangler With A Mix Of Warm Weather Parts

MALVERN, Pa. (May 10, 2017) – On this month’s episode of Throttle Out, ExtremeTerrain Video Host Ryan Huck builds up a 2017 4-door JK with the goal of making it a fair-weather cruiser that can rip off-road. Ryan wasted no time getting into the build, removing all of the stock bits to make room for the laundry list of modifications.

The guiding vision for this build was to create a rig that would be just as at home and capable on the beach and romping around on a farm as it would be on the street. In order to accomplish this, Ryan went with a Teraflex 3” Sport S/T3 Lift Kit, complete with Fox 2.0 Shocks. Paired with a set of ginormous 37” tires, this 2017 JK gains a healthy amount of ground clearance and ride height, while maintaining a smooth and composed ride off-road.

A mix of Barricade Off-Road Trail Force HD Bumpers and various body armor played up the white/black contrast of the look, while also adding a good bit of off-road protection. A set of Raxiom lights enhanced the nighttime visibility of this JK, while a Barricade 9,500 lb winch ensures that this rig won’t get sidelined on the trail. Replacing the factory exhaust with Magnaflow’s Performance Series Axle-Back really rounded out the whole build by giving this JK a more aggressive exhaust note.

To test the quality of the new upgrades, Ryan hopped behind the wheel and headed off-road to a big open field, where he was able to check the ride quality of the new suspension and tire setup at speed. While he didn’t get into anything too crazy, Ryan was happy with how the build turned out.
