Absolutely agree. Trying to stick to the basics.I agree with billiebob, you do not need anything over the top. Invest in some mild bumpers, lighting, a winch and recovery gear and hit the road. The more stock a vehicle is, the more reliable it is (most of the time).
Exactly what I was thinking! Stock Ranger did most of it and he wrote a big blog about it. It’s not the Rubicon lol, which is why the “Rubicon” is called such. LOLand the rough idea includes ?
For a Rubicon you should have no trouble box stock. No need for mods, the trail is all across public lands with easy access. CO and further west gets a bit more rugged but people do it in far less capable vehicles. Do you plan a bunch of side excursions?
Otherwise are you looking at refrigeration, sleeping, security mods?
Good point. Will check the blog out.Exactly what I was thinking! Stock Ranger did most of it and he wrote a big blog about it. It’s not the Rubicon lol, which is why the “Rubicon” is called such. LOL
It's OK4WD in New Jersey.Can't think of the name of the place right now but Chris of Venture4wd uses for his full time living in Jeep. They are also a member here and maybe even a sponsor of Expo. Here is a look at Chris's YT chan you can look through for it
If ordered correctly.........Ha.If ordered correctly you don’t need new bumpers, front or rear. Winch ready front bumpers and frame mounted spare tire carrier rear bumper combos are factory options. Developed with AEV these are quality components. The JL Rubicon can accommodate 35” tires off the lot. Before planning on spending a ton of money on aftermarket goodies option the Jeep right from the get-go, then see what you need. Start with a winch and basic (self-) recovery gear.
