Don’t know how many, if any, original members are still here, but I’m an old school ROF member from WAY in the early 2000’s when we used to trek to Moab annually for the ROF gathering. This was before the Bureau of Land Management had a fit about people having fun and we got shut down. Anyway, the monster TJ is gone and I built this 2015 Expedition Rig that’s now for sale. Check the ad and shoot me a message if you have questions. Don’t know if I can get pics to work on here but the ad is also on Expo and Overland Bound with a ton of photos. Only thing different is the Rhino Rack and AT Propane Tank mount are gone and it’s back to the factory Mopar 3-pc Hardtop.

Factory ordered with nearly every option available with the exception of leather seats. Currently has only 39k miles on the clock with oil (Mobil 1 full synthetic) and filter changes religiously at 7,500mi intervals and a five tire rotation (spare included) completed every 5k miles. Willing to assist with shipping via private carrier, arrange pick up at nearby SeaTac International Airport or Portland International Airport, or open to discuss personally driving the vehicle to its new home.

The Jeep needs nothing more to be ready for any adventure you have in mind. In its current configuration it seats 3, due to the Adventure Trailers Stage 2 cargo box and water tank. However, the sale comes with the still new removeable 4th seat (w/ Trek Armor cover) that easily bolts into the factory location in a matter of minutes. Please read all extras the Jeep comes with that either have been installed or come with the sale. I’m in possession of the clear and free title. The Jeep has never been in an accident nor ever damaged in any way. The registration was just renewed and is current through 06/2020.

The photos don’t necessarily show every modification, to included the brand new Cobra CB, HD Alu Cab awning mounts , Alu Cab 270 degree Alu Cab Awning, etc. If for some reason the photos are showing something in particular you’d like to see on the Jeep, shoot me a message with your email address and I can send detailed photos. The modification list is current and accurate to the best of my recollection. Also note, the windshield has a crack on the lower passenger side that does not obscure vision of either the driver or passenger. Just shy of over $70k invested in the build of this Jeep. On to the exhaustive list of parts, extras, and fine details…

Looks like a great jeep and a very good price point. I hope this means something new is coming to replace it.


BTW, there is no reason we can't meet up at Moab (or Sand Hollow) again to wheel.

Yes sir, want to build something else just not sure what. Once I figure out what’s next, we should put together another Moab or Rubicon run. Those were some of the best trips and experiences I’ve been apart of.

I am also a member from way back when. Remember a couple of those Moab trips. Drove a very early Black Rubicon back than. I show up as a newbie now as my old log in seemed to no longer work when I recently got active again after a move from Iowa to Colorado. Nope, l don't need another Jeep yet, enjoying the 2015 white 2 door that I ordered new late in 2014. I probably wheeled with you back then. Might see you again some day around Ouray or Moab.

Those ROF trips were such a great memory for me being much younger, in the military and away from family for so many years. Really a fantastic group of people coming together and just having great experiences wheeling Jeeps and camping together. I’ve been all over the west multiple times, unfortunately I have yet to make it to Colorado. But some day I most definitely will.

The hardtop and awning are sold. The JK now sports a fastback soft top making it the ideal candidate for a Ursa Minor pop top camper conversion. This also means the price just got lower, make a serious offer.

Weekend bump, JK is still for sale complete as it sits, or in parts if you’re interested in something specific to add to your JK. Beadlocks, cargo rack, fridge, stove, fridge/stove slide, AEV bumpers, winch, 37” tires, drawer system, onboard shower, ARB twin + mount, Trek Armor seat covers, etc.

Mac and bbusch, hey gents, great to hear from you after all these years have gone by!! I never left the Jeep game, just changed my style a little bit. Did some big trips to the Yukon, Alaska, Death Valley..all over the west. Just got back from Baja a couple months ago as well, but on my adventure bike..wish I had brought the Jeep though. Great looking Gladiator, Mac! I’ve been eyeing those as well, but not 100% settled on what’s next.

To anybody who is still interested, this is the final opportunity to grab the Jeep fully set up (with the exception of the hardtop/roof rack, the Jeep now sports a fastback soft top) before the double beadlocks get sold tomorrow and the full AT Overland interior build starts coming out. Shoot me a reasonable offer and I’ll drive it out anywhere in the country, minus Hawaii (no snorkel).
