Overland Classifieds :: 2000 Jeep Wrangler Sahara

The Wrangler is a desirable vehicle for off-grid travel and is subsequently a favorite on our forum. We’ve showcased a wide selection of expedition builds with recent examples, including this 2016 Unlimited Sport, a 2016 w/ Ursa Minor J30 camper, and a 2015 expedition build. If you’re in any doubt whether the Jeep is a valid around-the-world travel companion, then I recommend checking out Dan Grec’s website, The Road Chose Me, and the 2011 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon he used to overland Africa. The Wrangler’s capability is legendary thanks to 4WD, a body-on-frame design, front and rear lockers, and more. As a result, it’s well-equipped for the most demanding terrain, as demonstrated by videos from TrailRecon and Aussie Four Wheelers. Despite its compact dimensions, the Wrangler is also an excellent option for a lightweight camper conversion, as showcased by the unique builds from Mainline Overland, Down2Mob Overland, and The Road Chose Me. Today’s 2000 Sahara has covered 105,000 miles and features premium modifications.

From the Seller:

“Our Wrangler has been right in the middle of some of the best times our family has spent together, both in the garage and on the trail. We took the project from ‘mall crawler’ to an expedition rig in a short three years. From cliff dwellings in Arizona, canyons of Calico and mountain tops of So. Cal., Some great memories and photos will be with us for a lifetime! I hope the next owner can enjoy as much or more than we have.”

The Wrangler is fitted with a 4.0-liter engine that produces 181 horsepower, 222 pound-feet of torque, and returns a combined 16 mpg.
