Murdered Out Rubicon

Found this ultimate murdered out Rubicon and it looks almost exactly how I would like it. I would've probably just tinted the lights to get the ultimate in murdered out. Aside from that... pretty spot on.

2016 Wrangler Rubicon Unlimited
-Murdered out
-Fox racing performance shocks
-4inch Teraflex lifted suspension system
-XD Rockstar 3 wheels
-37inch Toyo Open Country R/T tires
-Fox racing ATS steering stabilizer
-50inch radiance LED light bar
-10inch light bar on the bull bar
-Electric side steps
-front and rear bumpers
+ so much more..

It's currently for sale at $54,900. A pretty penny, but does it seem worth it ?

From what you've listed, the only parts I would want on the Wrangler would be:
-Fox racing performance shocks
-4inch Teraflex lifted suspension system
-Fox racing ATS steering stabilizer

Everything else is negligible to me and mostly added for aesthetics. I don't really need LED lights everywhere and as nice as they are, the money could be effectively spent elsewhere.

I'm actually a fan of the electric side steps and LED accents, aside from the taillight. Though replacing that step if it ever breaks down is going to be a pain and probably not cheap to do so.

It's supposed to have a Pioneer backup camera, but I can see it with how dark the spare tire is. Maybe it'll give us an idea on how the camera will be mounted on the JL.

I really like the tail lights so that would be added to my list as well. Overall I think it is very tastefully done and hits a good note. A lot of custom wranglers are majority done for aesthetic reasons lol. Or shall we say "form over function"

A few years ago this would have been worth getting to me but with the JL coming out, I rather go that route, hence why i'm here.
Now, I can see how this appeals to someone since all these parts are packaged properly, along the lines of what some other brand do for other SUV makers and even car makers. Not everyone wants to do their own customization.

The Wrangler JK was introduced at the 2006 so it's a pretty old model even though it has seen a few updates over the years. That makes mods like the murdered out Rubicon appealing since it's so different compared to what's offered. That's no longer the case with the JL, though I'm sure some would want to have a murdered out version of the new Wrangler.

As much as I like it, I still wouldn't buy it. For me it's mainly because I would hate to buy something that someone has already built. I like doing the work myself and it's all apart of the experience. That, and the reason I'm here, I want the JL.

It'll definitely get sold to someone that isn't as inclined to doing things themselves though, and it does make life a lot easier. Is it worth the price? Possibly. Looks like quality work so hey, why not?

Choosing the which mods and accessories to add to your Wrangler is part of the fun part and you have a chance to research the quality of parts beforehand. These builds looks nice and the performance upgrades are on point, just not sure about the quality of everything else.

That's another thing I didn't really think about. Typically the larger shops do use the higher quality big brand parts, but sometimes the smaller shop builds would use a lot of knock-offs. Look nice from far or even up close sometimes, but quality is weak as heck.

For someone on a tight budget that's a great way to go because with just the cost of labor you can buy a part or two. It's just one of those things you have to factor in among all the other variables. Fortunately wrangler are easy enough to work on so even for the beginner that hasn't picked up a screwdriver ever in life... the hands on approach can be for them.
