Wrangler with Custom Trailer is a Jeep and a Half
Matching Jeep Wrangler-based trailer features everything necessary for the ultimate tailgating experience.
How do you make a Jeep Wrangler Rubicon even more of an outdoor fun machine? There are hundreds of answers to that question. You could give it more power or throw on some huge, knobby tires or upgrade the sound system. You could even add a badass custom trailer to it.
That’s what someone did with this 2007 JKU Rubicon, which will be sold through Carlisle Auctions during the Winter Florida AutoFest February 23-24. Of course, they started with the six-speed Wrangler itself and gave it a four-inch lift, 37-inch tires, aftermarket bumpers at both ends, and a 12,000-pound winch up front.
Behind that is a matching trailer made out of what we’re assuming is a Wrangler that was involved in a nasty front-end collision. It may just be half of a JKU, but it’s completely full of cool gear you could use to tailgate or camp out in (Jeep) style. According to one of the pictures on the auction page, it’s equipped with its own water supply, an air compressor, and a 15-gallon fuel tank. There’s a battery charger as well as a power inverter. Up top, there’s a roof rack for carrying additional (party) supplies. This awesome oddity is also cookout ready with its own grille and cooler. Inside, there’s room for two. Outside, there’s space for someone to sit in the included chair and talk with other partygoers under the retractable awning. They can all rest their drinks and snacks on the tops of the separate and fold-out tables.
Mopar makes a variety of add-ons and upgrades for the new JL Wrangler, including a tent that connects to the back end. It doesn’t offer anything like this, though. We have no doubt that after enough time goes by, someone out there will be creative and committed enough to produce the JL version of this ultimate Wrangler accessory.
