2008 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Unlimited w/ Ursa Minor Camper :: Classifieds

The Jeep Wrangler is considered overlanding royalty and one of the most popular 4WDs on our forum, with recent examples including this 2017 Rubicon, 2021 Unlimited Willys, and 2018 Recon with an Ursa Minor camper. In a world where “4WD” has become code for “luxury mall crawler,” the Wrangler remains something of an outlier harking back to the uncompromising backcountry vehicles produced by Willy’s Overland in the 1940s. Today, I’m not sure that any vehicle has become quite as synonymous with overlanding in North America as the Wrangler. Subsequently, aftermarket support is unparalleled, meaning that no two are the same, and each vehicle can be finely tuned to the owner’s objectives. If you’d like to see how the platform can be outfitted for overland travel then check out the builds from Goldens Gone Wheelin, Justin B. McBride, and Epic Family Road Trip. Today’s one-owner (121,000 miles) 2008 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Unlimited showcases premium upgrades and is topped with an Ursa Minor camper. Learn more about this go-anywhere icon on the Overland Journal podcast: Building the LJ and TJ Jeep Wrangler for Overlanding.
