The Wrangler is widely considered one of the best platforms for overlanding. It’s no surprise that it’s a popular option on our forum with recent expedition-ready examples like this 2013 Unlimited AEV with a Smittybilt Scout, a 2006 Rubicon Unlimited, and a 2016 Expedition Build. The Wrangler is one of the few 4WDs that has remained true to its mission, i.e., a hardcore, go-anywhere, utilitarian vehicle rather than becoming a lavish status symbol. Sure, newer models feature driver comforts, but it remains functional first. If you’d like to see what this vehicle is capable of, watch Expedition Portal field test the 2021 Jeep Wrangler 4xe, the 392 HEMI Wrangler Rubicon Recon, and the Wrangler Brute. The Wrangler is a compact vehicle, and for families or heavier builds, you should instead consider the Gladiator (see Hourless Life’s Gladiator build for inspiration). However, with some imagination, the Wrangler is still a valid rolling home, as demonstrated by builds from Drew Simms and Justin B. McBride. Today’s low-mileage (65,500 miles) rig showcases desirable interior comforts and an extensive list of premium modifications.
From the Seller:
“Selling my 2019 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon as is. This rig has been modified to create a great overland vehicle. It has everything you need to get out there comfortably. Selling because I haven’t been able to get out as much as I used to, and need a smaller vehicle for my daily commutes and city garage. [It] has been meticulously maintained. Oil changes and tire rotations every 3,000 miles, differential fluids changed at 40,000 miles, and air and cabin filters changed out after dusty trips. I have all the maintenance records on hand.”
