The Rockster Jeep build by River Raider Off-Road is fast approaching its debut at the Pomona Off Road Expo in October. ProMark Offroad is sponsoring the build with a ProMark Jeep winch and synthetic winch line. Get a look at the progress in the pictures below. More details and pictures are available at the JKOwners forum.

After the Rockster made a side trip to Rock Krawlers for suspension work, Jeremy from Rock Krawlers updated the forum on the suspension and what would happen next:
“The ‘Rockster’ is finally heading out west! Actually, it looks awesome without the soft top on it! Kenny did a great job with the cage! Twisted Stitch will be redoing the top when it gets to Cali!
It has a 2.5″ Long Arm System with 3.5″ of stretch. We are actually planning on on offering this as a production system for 2 doors at a 2.5″ and 3.5″ lift height. The frame has been cleaned up from its years of travel on the East Coast!
Here are a few images of it back on the stock tires and wheels! Once it gets out west it is going to Todd and The Jeep Speed Shop where a Dana 60 front and Corp 14 bolt rear will be slid underneath it. Poly Performance is welding on all the axle brackets so the old school axles will bolt right up. RWK Haus Supply is building the axles stuffed with High Quality Yukon Products.
While at the Jeep Speed Shop an LS engine swap will also take place! By the time it leaves the Jeep Speed Shop it will be on Race Line Wheels and 40″ Tires!
The Rockster is missing shocks and bumps for now! Fox shocks and air bumps will be installed to handle the dampening duties and control the high speed up travel of the massive 40’s and heavy axles. Stay tuned for final assembly pictures. The ‘Rockster’ will also be in our booth at the Pomona Offroad Expo with the Top Off unless it is raining.
Great Work Kenny! Now it is off to the next phase! Good Luck to Todd at Jeep Speed Shop and the rest of the guys finishing up the ‘Rockster.'”
