Over the river and through the woods. Over the boulders and through the desert. Over the tundra and through the snow. Overlanding we go!
The adventure sport of overland off-roading has been around since we first climbed behind the wheel. The urge to find and conquer the most challenging landscapes is built into the DNA of the Jeep® brand. Rough terrain, high elevations, water — that’s always been part of the challenge, and there’s nothing we love more than a challenge, navigating the toughest trails — and blazing new ones — in vast expanses of wilderness.
Overland four-wheel adventures range from famous trails to uncharted territories, and from day trips to yearlong excursions. Some overland trips cross deserts and forests, others cross borders and time zones. The world is full of new places to explore and to get muddy, and a Trail Rated® badge on your Jeep® 4×4 vehicle signifies that you know your vehicle will perform under almost any conditions, whatever distances you plan to travel.
The Jeep Wrangler Rubicon is especially well equipped for overland off-roading. In the most challenging environments, when unexpected obstacles like boulders or downed trees block your path, we have you covered. The Rock-Trac® 4WD system helps deliver control and torque, and the 4:1 low-gear ratio and low crawl speed make it easier to trek over obstacles like large rocks and timber and ascend or descend sharp inclines.
Additional features of the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon make it an overland legend — features like the front axle sway bar disconnect for better articulation off-road, and skid plates that protect critical underbody components. Plus, tow hooks are great for helping fellow overland off-roaders out of sticky situations, and high-efficiency, chip-resistant fog lamps help you see the path ahead even when there’s no road in sight.
Whether your overland adventures last a couple days or a couple years, the Jeep Wrangler has you covered for performance and reliability. Still, it pays to be prepared, and a lot of that is in your hands.
Here’s a quick to-do checklist to keep handy as you plot the course of your next overland trek.
