No, it's not a Ford Explorer, it's a Jeep JK Wrangler Unlimited Explorer. We've owned a number of JKs in the last couple of years and wanted to incorporate all we'd learned into a Jeep that would be an excellent daily driver and would work well for backcountry exploring trips, too. This Unlimited wouldn't be the biggest or baddest Wrangler on the planet, but it would be the best all-around JK we'd ever owned.

Davis Auto Center in Logan, Utah, supplied our brand new, fully loaded 2009 Wrangler Rubicon Unlimited. Charlie and T.J. Davis always take care of us and are getting interested in exploring the backcountry themselves. We drove our Unlimited from the dealer to Mount Logan Off-Road, the northern Utah JK experts, to have the transformation into JK Explorer performed.

When it was finished, the JK Unlimited was what we hoped it would be - the best all-around Wrangler we've ever driven. Peruse the photos to see how that was accomplished.
