About a month ago, we took delivery of the Jeep JK Overland image vehicle. We will have it for a few years and take it on various adventure (Dusy Ershim, exploration into Southern Utah, Alaska, etc.).
Because of the growing popularity of overland travel, Jeep has this truck placed front and center in the Chrysler/Mopar booth at SEMA. We had a few upgrades and modifications that needed to be installed. Thought some of you would be interested in the progress. I will also try to post some Jeep pictures from the show.
This is how the truck looked a few weeks ago, when we first took delivery:
The suspension had been upgraded from a 2" Mopar to the 3.5" Nth Degree system from AEV.
The first new upgrade was a fridge. Typically I install smaller units, but this new National Luna has two compartments. Most use one side as a freezer, I use it for really cold beer
The FedEx dude does not like me right now.
The packaging is serious for this fridge, which is nice. No damage. I love attention to detail in packaging. It says so much about the company IMO
This is the aluminum model. It is also available in Stainless. I will likely get the cover soon to protect this monster.
This is the freezer side with a single basket. Below the basket is the compressor cabinet. It is a pretty big freezer.
Here is the main compartment, which has two baskets, one on top of the other. It seems to be about 50L in size. Baskets are super convenient for loading the fridge after a visit to the mercado
I also have the rack and tent off of the JK. I like it without the rack, but I am also warming up to it with the rack and tent on top. To accommodate the additional weight, the rear anti-swaybar was increased to a 1" diameter bar.
