Overland Classifieds :: 2016 Jeep Wrangler Expedition Build

There are very few vehicles that have remained as true to their roots as the Jeep Wrangler. Sure, the latest models are more refined and have additional driver comforts, but key characteristics remain the same (contrary to the Land Rover Defender). In fact, at a distance, the modern Wrangler looks almost identical to the original 1986 model, and to this day it continues to be one of the most capable 4WDs on the market. It’s therefore a popular platform for overland builds with recent examples including this 2017 Unlimited Sport, a 2016 JKUR Rocklander, and a 2013 AEV Rubicon Unlimited. If you’d like a better idea of how this vehicle can be outfitted for vehicle travel then check out A Jeep Wrangler as an Overland Vehicle or listen to Building the Jeep Wrangler for Overlanding on the Overland Journal podcast. Today’s 2016 model has covered just 49,000 miles and features desirable aftermarket modifications.

From the Seller:

I love this Jeep because it is the perfect platform for overlanding. It’s so much fun to take on the trail but also works well as my daily driver. It will be missed.

2016 Jeep Wrangler

The Wrangler is fitted with a V6 motor that produces 285 horsepower, 260 pound-feet of torque, and returns a combined 18 mpg. This perky engine provides surprisingly brisk on-road performance, with a 0-60 sprint of just 7.7 seconds. However, it’s when the tarmac ends that the Jeep really comes to life, thanks to 4WD, front and rear locking differentials, 10 inches of ground clearance, high and low range, and more. Inside driver comforts include:

  • Air-conditioning
  • Infotainment system with navigation
  • Premium JL audio
  • Cruise control

Distinguishing Features

  • ARB front and rear bumpers
  • Rhino-Rack cargo system
  • KMC wheels with A/T tires
  • Warn winch
  • Body lift

This 2016 Jeep Wrangler Expedition Build is listed for $27,000 and is currently located in Kentucky. Check the full vehicle specifications via the original Expedition Portal forum post here.
