Rock-crawling Wrangler Unlimited Is a Savage Highway Warrior, Too
Who says you can’t have the best of both worlds?
For most of us who are lucky enough to have a dedicated off-roader, that’s usually where it stays – off-road. But every now and then, a build comes along that has it all: Both insane off-road utility and just enough civility to take care of business on the pavement too. That’s what we’re looking at today thanks to this recent video by TrailRecon. In it, host Brad goes over Adam’s 2014 Jeep Wrangler “Titan,” a Wrangler Unlimited that’s about as far from stock as you can get.
If Adam looks familiar to you, that’s because he highlights his Jeep’s adventures on the Instagram account oh_that_1_dude. Along the way, he’s grown with the Jeep. His Wrangler began life as a black 2014 Unlimited Sport. When he bought it, it had 20-inch rims and a 4-inch suspension lift – just enough modification to pique his interest. “I just saw something on the lot that was built and I was like ‘yes, I want it,” he says. After a few trips off-road with some more experienced friends, he realized that the truck needed some help to excel on the trails. Now, three years later, it’s now known the Titan.
One serious build
“I wanted the best daily driver that I can, but at any given time I could go off-road,” he says. To do that, he’s stripped off just about every bit of suspension and bodywork that came from Toledo and modified just about everything except the engine and brakes.
On the exterior, there’s a Poison Spider high-clearance bumper, Warn Zeon 10S winch, a rack of KC Pro 6 lights, Nitto 40-inch tires, spare tire delete with jerry cans and a CB radio antenna, Poison Spider steel fender, rock sliders, and rear rear bumper, a red full roll cage, aluminum half-doors, and the B-pillars have been chopped. The whole thing is finished in Toyota/Scion Cement Gray.
Underneath, there’s a G2 Core 44 front axle 4.13 gears, and an ARB locker. A Rubicon Express long-arm kit, ORI fully-adjustable struts with a 5″ lift, Rubicon Express skid plates, driveshafts, Poison Spider steel fender and rock sliders. The frame has also been modified to fit the ORI struts and bumpers.
And inside, there’s a powerful Pioneer sound system equipped with Apple CarPlay and a front-facing camera, a Powertank CO2 tank for airing tires on the fly, storage crate, hidden ARB air compressor, and Corbeau adjustable racing seats with a custom rear bench. Of course, we’re sure we’re forgetting some things. You’ll just have to watch the video to get the full rundown.
So what’s next for Adam and his Titan Wrangler? Triangulated 4-link rear suspension, a custom fuel cell, and a trip to this year’s Easter Jeep Safari. If you’re planning on going this year, be sure to say hello. If you can’t make it, his Insta account and this video just might be the next best thing.
