Having driven the expanse of Europe, NZ & the USA –
My spare time has been taken up by the idea of Exploring Southern Africa.
What better place to test out the new overland build, than in Namibia.
After a month of looking for a CRD Diesel Jeep.
I found this gem, low milage and a good service history.
She will be called Rubi2-
I could not help but start this build off properly.
Getting rid of the standard JK stock suspension, we installed the Heavy Duty Outback Teraflex coil suspension kit & Teraflex 2.1 Monotube shock absorbers.
The 2.5” lift should be plenty to add 35” inch tires, but since this build will be tailored for long journeys into the unknown, I ordered a set of Mickey Thompson Mud terrain MTZ P3’s in 33” inches, paired with Dynamic Steel Beadlock rims. (Should be installed last week of August)
