What Makes the Jeep Wrangler so Great for Adventures?

Jeeps are the epitome of adventure and off-road driving. Funnily enough, us Wrangler owners aren’t the only ones to agree – Google thinks so too!

Test your hand at looking up different adventure phrases on Google Images such as ‘off road adventure’ or ‘adventure car’. Most, if not all, the photos you’re presented with will be of a Jeep Wrangler JK or JL driving through scenic venues all over the world. If you haven’t already, be sure to check out our guide to the top travel destinations for your Jeep Wrangler with storage tips!

 The Jeep Wrangler with integrated storage is not only breathtakingly photogenic, it has some of the best possible features for adventurers looking to take on any expedition. After reading through these, you’ll be sure to appreciate your Wrangler quite a bit more!

 

Height Advantage

 

For a compact SUV, the Jeep Wrangler carries some serious height on it. Measuring on average 73.6 inches, the Wrangler is noticeably rises above vehicles in its category.

In fact, most standard sized SUV’s stand at about 74 inches tall, so the Wrangler isn’t very far off.

As an adventurer, the tall frame of your Jeep Wrangler will give you a very nice vantage point when driving through on and off-road terrain. This will keep you feeling safe and secure, regardless of the size of the vehicles around you.

Handles well on All Terrain

The Jeep Wrangler often gets some flack for its less than stellar handling on pavement, but you’ll fail to find another SUV that can take on any element without much of a flinch.

The Jeep Wrangler is by far the highest selling SUV model in the US, and this is a great reason why.

Here in the United States, we have been blessed with so much variety in our environment. Head to southern California to experience the bubbling hot sun on some of the world’s most famous beaches then spend some time in the freezing cold and snowy climates of the great North East. The notice is night and day, and the equipment necessary to deal with these varying climates is much different as well. 

This goes for your car as well!

As an adventurer, the vehicular flexibility of the Jeep Wrangler will allow you to take on virtually any terrain here in our great country with ease and grace.

 

Easy to Repair

Fiat Chrysler Automotive, Jeep’s parent company, have sold over 100,000 Wranglers of all editions every year since 2011.  In 2016 they hit a record number of over 202,000 Wranglers sold.

 Now, you may be thinking your vehicle isn’t unique – it is! With a few Jeep Wrangler upgrades, your vehicle will stand out like a snowflake when compare to any other on the road.

 The best news about adding so many new members to the Wrangler community every year is that a proportionate number of Jeep parts are being funneled in the market as well. Your Wrangler is American made, so most any mechanic that knows their way around an American car would be able to effectively get their hands dirty in a brand new or used Jeep Wrangler storage.

In fact, more often than not, owners opt to start working on their cars themselves. As mentioned previously, both OEM and third-party Jeep parts are made available online at incredibly fair prices.

 Some find working on cars to be really fun and allows them to get a lot more personal with your vehicle. You learn a lot about your Jeep Wrangler, magnifying any slight abnormalities you may experience when driving around.

 

Lightweight and Small in Size

 

We know it certainly doesn’t look like it, but your Jeep Wrangler actually weighs less than commonly compared off road vehicles in its class.

 Let’s take the Mercedes G-Wagon and Toyota Land Cruiser for an accurate view.

 Many people are unaware that the Mercedes Benz G-Wagon is actually a great vehicle for off road activity. It’s hard to imagine who would decide to take this 6-figure luxury car to the next Jeep Jamboree, nonetheless the option exists for those looking to do so. The Land Cruiser, while better known for its off-road capabilities, still lags behind the likes of the Jeep Wrangler in terms of association with adventure and off-roading.

 The 2018 G-Wagon weighs in at well over 6,000 pounds, making it one of the heaviest vehicles currently on the market. The 2018 Land Cruiser carries slightly less of a package, weighing in at just 5,815 pounds.

 Jeep rolled out a few models of the Wrangler this year. The lightest edition, a 2.0-liter Sport, weighed in at a measly 3,800 pounds, with the heaviest, a 3.0 liter diesel, clocking in at just under 4,500 pounds.

 This puts the Wrangler at nearly 1,500 pounds lighter than vehicles that arguably perform very similarly. However, with less weight you get more speed, better handling, and a smoother ride.

 As an adventure vehicle, what more could you possibly need?

 

SUV-like Power and Durability

 I guess I answered my own question.

 Yes, besides a sleek, lightweight design, an adventurer would love immense SUV-like power that rivals some of the top vehicle in its class.

 Fortunately for you, the Jeep Wrangler has all this, and then some.

The Wrangler’s 4.0L engine has been characterized as bullet proof by a multitude of reviewers. Additionally, most pre-JK Wranglers are free from all the weird electrical issues because they simply don’t have any electrical components.

As an adventurer, knowing your car is ready for anything it may face is extremely comforting and will save you from a lot of stress down the line.  

 

Storage Upgrades

 Most Jeep Wrangler storage options aren’t the best, but upgrades exist to drastically improve your cargo carrying experience. These sleekly designed storage systems also add a simple, yet elegant touch to your vehicle’s interior.

 As an adventurer, it’s imperative that you have all the tools and equipment necessary for a safe and fun trip. With Jeep Wrangler integrated storage upgrades, the opportunities are endless as to what you can take with you on your next journey.

 Our favorite line of Jeep Wrangler storage upgrades exists at xgcargo.com. Their design team has created some epic cargo tools that drastically expand the usability of your vehicle’s storage.

 Make sure you get your storage in order. It’s immensely important for a smooth and satisfying ride.

Immense Customizability

 

Lift kits, Wrangler storage, floor liners, oh my!

It seems like we touch on this fact every week, but the Jeep Wrangler’s ability to be customized is truly a one of a kind feature it holds over all of its other competitors. 

As stock Jeeps come off the assembly line with only the barebone essentials needed to run and drive, it’s imperative that owners add upgrades that matter to them and their uses. Not everybody goes off road, so lifting your vehicle may not be necessary (even though it looks absolutely fantastic). Instead, you may opt to purchase increased Jeep Wrangler integrated storage options to drastically improve the spatial area you have to store any necessities. 

In my opinion, this is one of the great parts of being a Wrangler owner. 

We all have various reasons for getting the car. Despite this, we’re all connected through our mutual and never-ending love for our Jeeps. 

Whether you’re a serious off roader, or someone just glued to the staple look and design of the Jeep Wrangler, you’ll undoubtedly find the perfect combination of customizables to match you and your driving style.

Convertible Cool Factor

 

How many SUV’s come stock with a drop-top?

The answer is very, very few.

Sports Utility Vehicles are simply not very conducive to the idea of convertibles for a variety of reasons.

Luckily, the Wrangler isn’t your average SUV.

So, go ahead and take that top off, check your tires, and hit the road. So much fun awaits you.

When a Jeep Wrangler passes by you on the street, it’s difficult not to have the word “adventure” immediately pop up in your head. This is, in part, because the Jeep Wrangler has become known for its incredible ability to improve solo and family adventures over the decades.

Luckily, the Wrangler does more than walk the walk, it has more than enough features to back up its reputation.
