Overland Classifieds :: Loaded 2019 Jeep JLU Rubicon
If you’ve been looking for a true turn-key Jeep overland build with low mileage that can hit the trail the moment you hand over your hard-earned cash, then Justin McBride’s 2019 Jeep JLU Rubicon could be the vehicle you’ve been looking for. Not only is this JLU immaculate, but it’s also been outfitted with everything you could POSSIBLY need for the trail (lift, wheels, camping gear, RTT, lighting, recovery gear, and more).
As the fourth iteration of the Jeep Wrangler, the JL Unlimited is a four-door body-on-frame construction with solid axels, a 44-degree angle of approach, and 30 inches of water-fording ability (from the factory). Having personally driven a (growing) variety of Wranglers, this editor has always been impressed with their factory capability, ease of operation, and compact dimensions that allow for easier navigating of tight trails.
From The Seller
“I picked up the rubicon for the factory front and rear lockers with sway bar disconnect, the 4.10 gear ratio with 77:1 crawl ratio, the high-clearance fender flares, the factory steel bumpers, and the Dana 44 axels. But if all of that stuff, all of those rubicon stats, weren’t enough, this jeep has almost every factory add-on. It has the cold weather package, auxiliary switches, adaptive cruise control, color-matched fender flares and hard-top, LED light package, 8.4-inch display, and the remote start with proximity door handles. Even though this thing is a beast off the lot, I’ve done a lot to get it ready for extended overland travel.”
2019 Jeep JLU Rubicon
This firecracker red Jeep JLU Rubicon has a 3.6L V6 24V VVT Engine with ESS & eight-speed automatic transmission, generating 285 horsepower and 260 foot-pounds of torque. Before the addition of aftermarket equipment, fuel economy is estimated at 18 miles-per-gallon city and 23 highway, with a gross vehicle weight rating of 5,800 pounds and a 1,361-pound payload. The stock wheelbase length is 118.4 inches with a 62.9-inch track width and 10.8-inches of ground clearance (before the addition of aftermarket lift, wheels, or tires).
This Jeep JLU is loaded with an excess of aftermarket off-road and overland equipment, the likes of which could take up multiple articles. However, in our efforts to keep things short and to the point, here are a few of the stand out additions:
- Goose Gear 60 percent rear seat delete
- Long Range America additional fuel tank (+17 gallons)
- TeraFlex 2.5-inch Alpine RT2 Short Arm Suspension System
- Go Fast Campers V2 Platform RTT
