With awards ranging from Best Car of the Year from U.S. News, Hottest 4×4 from SEMA, and of course Overland SUV of the Year by Expedition Portal, it’s no secret that the new Jeep Rubicon is a fantastic vehicle. These awards don’t come without merit. Besides being comfortable and easy to drive, the Rubicon is incredibly capable off-road, making even the toughest trails seem like a quiet drive through the countryside. So how do you make such a great truck even better? By handing it over to American Expedition Vehicles.

This particular Jeep is a 2013 Rubicon with less than 4,000 miles on the clock. It retains all the factory options associated with this trim level including front and rear lockers, 4:10 gear ratios, and electronic sway bar disconnects; but also has a few extra AEV additions. I use the word “few” loosely, since between the 3.5″ suspension lift, Warn winch, AEV snorkel, front and rear bumpers, etc; the price of parts alone exceeds $20,000. Luckily, this practically new truck won’t cost you that additional $20K over list price but only half that, making this awesome overland rig well worth the investment.

About the Author: Chris Cordes

Born and raised in Dallas, Texas, Chris didn’t receive a real taste of the outdoors until moving to Prescott, Arizona, for college in 2009. While working on his business degree in the Embry-Riddle undergraduate program, he learned to fly and spent his weekends exploring the Arizona desert and high country. He fell in love with backcountry travel and four-wheel drive vehicles, which led him to Overland Journal and Expedition Portal. Chris was immediately hooked by the concept of overlanding, which combines the excitement and adventure of flying with his affection for cars and trucks. After receiving his degree, Chris did a summer internship with Overland International before accepting a full-time position on our team.
