Pirate 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited on the Temple Trail

Lance Clifford of Pirate and JK fame brought his built-to-the-hilt 2012 JK Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon to Southern Utah. We took a trip south from Hurricane and followed the old pioneer Temple Trail.

The Temple Trail was used from 1871 to 1877 by pioneers building the St. George, Utah, LDS Temple. They built a sawmill on the flanks of Mt. Trumbull in northern Arizona and shipped logs up to 48 feet long on freight wagons. In many places, the original trail can be followed.

Lance’s Pirate JK is equipped with a Synergy long arm suspension system, Fox Racing 2.5 reservoir bypass shocks, Dynatrac front and rearends, a 4.3 Atlas transfer case, 39” BFG Krawler s mounted on Method Racing beadlocks, and a complete complement of Poison Spyder Customs armor. It had no problem following the trail, even when we diverted from the BLM roads and followed parts of the true original trail.

You’ll be seeing more on Lance’s Pirate JK here and in the pages of 4Wheel Drive & Sport Utility Magazine soon.
