Description: I bought this 2019 jeep JLU unlimited in March 2019 and started building it on April 1st, 2019 as a get a way from being a caretaker for my wife that recently passed from a brain tumor.

IT started out as just a couple upgrades Fabtech 3″ Lift, then came the Dirtlogic Shocks 2.25 Resi. I would take top off and take her for rides and she loved it.

Then she started to push me to do more and then the rest of my family, my kids, parents, cousins all got involved so we went for it and the whole time this is a daily driver.

My dealership helped me with it , it helps that my cousin was also my service writer lol, he started out changing interior to katazan leather with color matched stitching,then smittybuilt SRC bumpers with a smittybilt x20 winch, rough country dual sterring stabilizers, then came Americus rugged m/t 35×12.50×17 tires wrapping around a set of color matched Toxic shok 304s. then I needed better breaks and I upgraded to color matched American Power Brakes . I then went with a afe 3: stainless catback exhaust. We then changed headlights and foglights to Morimoto super 7 bi-led head lights and xb foglights sitting inside a color matched shark grill.

Next thing I got a letter asking to display my Jeep at the biggest show in the world and a bucket list for me; SEMA 2019 for Aero Sunz, I explained and never thought it was good enough because I drive it daily well we will be there. Since ive given the jeep a theme and had a set of Burnt Custonm Inner liners especially made That had a Autism symbol for my grand daughter, a cancer ribbon for my wife, and Mission 22 for our vets and rear liners with American flag with reen stripe for military, we also have a flagpole with a gas mask angel and personalized door seals. we also have a factor 55 ultimate hook and hawse and a hitch works 3 in 1 receiver.

I then added graphics and a ds18 tailgate jmid platinum sound system. We came up with the name Sunstorm because every family has a battle of some sort. This project has helped me reconnect with someone from my past that has as much love for this build as I do and showed me we can survive in some of the hardest battles we face.
