2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited



The main build

The first stage of this build included the basic or what was thought to be the basic necessities in an overland rig.  The first thing that was done to the Jeep was a trail worthy lift kit.  Rock Krawler 2.5" Max Travel Lift was picked and then soon after the 35x12.50R17 BFGoodrich KM2 tires were mounted.  After some camping trips, the interior and the roof rack were the next big things to tackle.  Once the interior storage was built and the roof rack was installed it was time to get organized and see where everything would be placed.  The Engel MT45 and the Cook Partner stove slide out on the Adventure Trailers Combo Slide in the back of the Jeep.  


Last minute Trans-america trail parts

Crunch time is never a good time to be installing parts that could make or break a trip.  But due to the 9 to 5 the parts had to be installed last minute.  The Viair Constant Duty system, 13 gallon onboard water tank, and the Adventure Trailers Interior JK Cargo Rack was quickly but correctly installed.  


fine tuning

This part of the build is never ending.  As for the Jeep in its current state it will be getting adjusted for a similar trip as the Trans-America Trail.  In 2019, Hi-Vis Overland will set out on the Continental Divide Trail.
