Those early Jeeps were TOUGH. No lift kits or big tires to be found anywhere. This footage is awesome!
From Ashley in Sparta, NJ:
“My Jeep (Rex) hasn’t failed me yet. We’ve survived several near-misses on the roads, and at least a dozen mountain-top snowstorms. He never, ever lets me down on the road or the trail. I run all stock, Rex tackles everything like a champ. Wherever I gotta go, my Jeep will get me there.”
It looks like the only thing Rex hasn’t tackled is a carwash! (That’s a good thing) – JW

A while back, we posted about a group of German Adventurers who were attempting a trek for Paris to NYC, “the long way” in Jeep Wrangler Rubicons. This hearty crew was forced to shut down the expedition in early 2009 due to the horrific Siberian Winter. Bogged down by countless snowstorms and mechanical failures, the team was delayed long enough to prevent them from crossing the Bering Strait into Alaska. According to the Toledo Blade , our brave adventurers are back at it:
“The German adventurers attempting to drive two modified Toledo-built Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicons from Paris to New York the long way have restarted their journey after a nine-month hiatus in western Siberia.
Extreme Events founder Matthias Jeschke and his team departed from Egvekinot, on the coast of the Bering Sea’s Anadyrski Gulf in southeastern Russia, on Dec. 29. That location was where the team suspended its journey March 26, because of poor weather and mechanical breakdowns. The team had traveled 18,000 miles from Paris eastward across Europe and Asia. The original plan was to cross the frozen Bering Strait, drive into Alaska, into Canada and then across the northern United States and reach New York City and complete the 27,000-mile trip last spring. The two Rubicons will attempt to reach the village of Uelen – on the Russian side of the Bering Strait – by the end of January before attempting to cross the strait via an ice bridge, using outrigger pontoons attached to the vehicles as a backup. The expedition’s schedule calls for the team to visit Toledo – where the Wranglers were made – on or about June 1, on their way to a June 11 expedition end in New York City.”
