About the Jeep

We ordered the JK Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon in October 2006 to start a long series of articles featuring technical info, how-to's, buildups, off-road trips, and more.  We took delivery after a 4 month wait and got busy right away.

You will find articles, projects, and adventures featuring this Jeep all over  Visit some of the below sections to see it in action.

Future Plans
