These Jeeps have often taken us down the beaches at Cape Hatteras, NC and Assategue Island, MD. We also frequent the Virginia and Pennsylvania mountain Jeep trails and travel to mid-atlantic and New England ski resorts. In sand, mud, and deep snow these Jeeps just grind on through! Now for some rock crawlin'.
Rubicon - A small river which separated Italy from Cisalpine Gaul, the province alloted to Julius Caesar. By leading an army across this river, contrary to the prohibition of the civil government at Rome, Caesar precipitated the civil war which resulted in the death of Pompey and the overthrow of the senate.
Hence, the phrase to pass or cross the Rubicon signifies to take the decisive step by which one is committed to a hazardous enterprise from which there is no retreat.
Seems appropriate for a Jeep this capable.

The Red Cherokee was sold but still running well at 235,000 original owner miles so now we have to tow a red boat with a blue Jeep.

Now there is sand in the Blue one too.

You may notice the American Racing Outlaw I wheels keep appearing on our Jeeps. They are not the best choice for serious rock crawling abuse but they are relatively inexpensive and since they don't have spokes or slots of any kind no brake dust gets through. They stay shiny and clean up real easy.

The '96 towing a 1990, 19 foot Stingray with 350c.i. Mercruiser and through the transom exhausts. Loud and fast for blasting accross the Chesapeake Bay.
