Searching for a new Rig

Posted in Uncategorized on October 28, 2013 by thedesertfiles

Well it’s been almost 2 years since I have travelled to the desert. In that time so much has changed! Bodie the Blue Jeep died (crankshaft rod bearing broke to due a botched oil change from a repair shop), I was married and divorced =), and my travel for work increased significantly. 

Everything seems to be settling down back to an enjoyable routine so I figured it’s time to start looking for a new rig. 

I’ve decided on a 2014 Unlimited Rubicon. In the next few months I’ll be ready to purchase. I settled on it because of the factory front and rear lockers, the availability/low cost of accessories and armor, and I love Jeep. 

I’ll be lifting it with a 3 inch lift by Mopar and adding 35 inch tires.

Looking forward to the day when I can get back out there and enjoy the wide open.
