Video of the Week: Overland Journal Jeep Wrangler JLU Project Vehicle

overland journal jeep jlu project vehicle

Join Overland Journal’s Brian McVickers as he traverses the lonely Arizona desert landscape, testing the Jeep Wrangler JLU project vehicle which he has been refining since April of 2018. Starting with a basic Wrangler Sport, Brian logged some miles to determine what this vehicle really needed. He then got to work, adding safety and recovery gear before moving on to lighting, suspension, and more.
