Our prep completed, we met up with Mike, who was ready to hit the road. He had contemplated towing his apple-green ’75 CJ-5 up to the Rubicon, but once we signed on to the crazy adventure he forgot the tow rig. The truth is Mike was our backup plan. We know his ’75 is reliable and tough enough to tow our CJ-5 over the Rubicon sideways if it had to. Plus, Mike knows the Jeep and can tell when something is not right or needs attention.
