Overland Classifieds :: 2016 Jeep Wrangler JKUR Rocklander

The Jeep Wrangler is a popular overland platform, with recent AEV (American Expedition Vehicle) equipped examples, including a 2013 AEV Rubicon Unlimited, 2014 AEV Build w/ Overland Extras, and a 2014 JKU w/ a Plethora of AEV Components on our forum.

What makes this 4WD vehicle so popular? The Wrangler is favored for its rugged “mountain goat” like qualities, which have underpinned the model since its inception. The Wrangler has enjoyed improved refinement and additional tech over the years. Unlike many competitors, its go-anywhere capabilities haven’t been detrimental; the Wrangler has only improved with age.

Today’s example has been extensively modified and dubbed a “Rocklander,” a vehicle that combines overlanding and rock crawling elements. This offering was not produced by AEV but has been completely reimagined with premium components and is easily one of the most hardcore off-road focused Wranglers we’ve featured. I don’t doubt for a second this rig cost a fortune to build, but I’d argue that $72,000 OBO is optimistic, considering this 2015 AEV Brute was listed a couple of weeks back for $49,500.

From the Seller:

My wife and I have decided to sell our 2016 Jeep JKUR Rocklander overlanding toy with 93,000 miles. This Jeep has been built to handle anything you can throw at it and has seen a lot. The Wrangler has crossed the Mojave Desert, Death Valley, driven up through the Sierra Nevadas, and Moab to the North Rim without fail. It’s done a lot and never let us down.”
