SAL­VAGED AN­NIVER­SARY

4 Wheel & Off Road - - READERS’ RIDES -

VE­HI­CLE: 2016 Jeep Wran­gler Un­lim­ited 75th An­niver­sary OWNER: David Wood­bury TIRES: 35-inch Goodyear Du­ra­trac, 17-inch Rock­star SUS­PEN­SION: 21⁄2 -inch Rough Coun­try lift DRIV­E­TRAIN: Stock with 6-speed man­ual trans­mis­sion OTHER MODS: DV8 hood, Rugged Ridge Spar­tan grille, Bushwacker fender flares, Bar­ri­cade Ad­ven­ture front bumper ANY­THING TO ADD?: I bought the Jeep through a sal­vage auc­tion. It had been high-cen­tered in a bog and sucked 5 gal­lons of salt­wa­ter into the en­gine. The project took four months. I re­placed the en­gine with a 2018 Ru­bi­con 3.6L V-6 and a new clutch, re­lay, en­gine fan, blower fan, and al­ter­na­tor. The photo was taken in the Big Horn Moun­tains of Wy­oming. Camp­ing out on the ledge of the cliff was amaz­ing.
