ARB's Extreme Overland JK
Driving Line has published a feature on the 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited that ARB built for the SEMA Show to exhibit some of their new aftermarket parts, including primarily their new Stubby Front Bumper, Intensity LED lights, Freezer-Fridge, and 4-inch JK suspension kit.
As such a capable vehicle it would be a shame if it never left the trade show circuit, so when ARB was invited to join Petersen's 4 Wheel & Off-Road Magazine's annual Ultimate Adventure, the ARB crew was ready to go. Although they're calling it an "overland" vehicle, I would say that this Jeep's modifications and extreme offroad capabilities go quite a bit beyond the traditional definition of an "overland vehicle."
However, it was built for adventure, and this Jeep proved itself at Ultimate Adventure. Every freshly-built vehicle is expected to have some "teething issues" and this Jeep was no exception, but after a few trail fixes it continued onward with the spirit you'd expect of a well-built Jeep Wrangler JK.
