The Jeep Wrangler is a popular choice for overlanding, with recent examples including this $43,000 2014 AEV build and a $37,999 2014 Wrangler with AEV components. Over the years, most iconic 4WD vehicles have been somewhat watered down (Defender, I’m looking at you) as manufacturers prioritize on-road handling, tech, and comfort over rugged all-terrain capability. Some outliers remain, and while the Wrangler has been refined over the years, it retains much of its original “mountain goat” DNA. AEV (American Expedition Vehicles) enhances this already capable platform for the road less traveled with uprated suspension, armor, wheels, accessories, and more. Today’s stunning 2013 AEV Rubicon has covered just 88,450 miles, features the V6 motor and extensive premium modifications, and is offered with a selection of overland accessories for an additional cost.
From the Seller:
“I have been fortunate to take this Jeep to many locations, [to] see and experience many different things. Part of my passion is to photograph not just the scenery but my vehicles on location. Hence, I’ve replaced this Jeep with a new rig. I’m now ready to visit new locations and take new photographs. This Jeep has never had a single mechanical or electrical failure, and I hope my new rig can be just as reliable.”
