A couple of months ago I bought a new (to me) Jeep Wrangler! It’s a 2016 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon and it’s perfect!! It’s not my first Jeep Wrangler but it is my first 4 door Wrangler, first automatic, and the first one with a hardtop.
Trying to put into words how much joy this thing has brought me since I bought it is a bit of a struggle. Just driving it around makes me smile and when I take the panels* off the hardtop and roll all the windows down I really can’t stop smiling!
Since it’s a Rubicon model it has an upgraded driveline, Dana 44 axles with front and rear lockers. I’m not planning to do any major upgrades for the time being as I want to drive it as is to see what needs to be upgraded. My plans for it are to turn it into a camping/overlanding rig. For now, I will be sleeping in it until I decide if I want to go with an Ursa Minor camper or hold off to get a JXL kit put on it. I’m a pretty tall guy so sleeping in the Jeep is a bit uncomfortable so upgrading the camping set-up is high on the list of upgrades I want to do.
I can’t wait to see where this Jeep takes me and I have a lot of plans for it in the future. Here’s some pics!
* – I refuse to call the freedom panels by their full name because it just sounds stupid. Kinda like freedom fries :-|.
