Off Road in My New Rubicon

First Time Wheeling on the Trails

On a Saturday morning, anticipation and nervousness filled me as I awoke. It was time to embark on a trail ride with my new Rubicon. Having spent the last five months exploring trails with my Jeep Wrangler Unlimited - Sahara, I eagerly anticipated the experience the Rubicon promised. I hadn't even made the first payment so my anxiety was high.

Exploring the Rubicon's Potential

Excitement surged through me as I looked forward to uncovering the Rubicon's capabilities firsthand. Equipped with a 4 to 1 transfer case, 4.10 gears, and 2 Dana 44's, I anticipated a notable difference, especially when activating the sway bar with the magic disco button.

A Special Journey with My Son

Adding to my excitement was the opportunity to share this adventure with my eldest son. As children grow, they often drift from their parents, making moments like these precious. I looked forward to bonding with him amidst the trails.

First Jeep Club Ride

Arriving at the Rausch Creek Off Road Park, I sought out the group I was to meet, feeling a hint of nervousness. Although I had met some members at the Women's Wheeling Day, joining the Blue Mountain Jeep Alliance Jeep ride marked a new experience. However, my worries faded as I was welcomed warmly into the community of Jeep enthusiasts.


Preparing for the Trails

As I prepared for the trails, adjusting tire deflators and engaging 4-wheel low, excitement mounted. Despite my initial apprehensions, I found comfort in my familiarity with the Jeep community, both online and offline.

Unleashing the Rubicon

With the Rubicon geared up, it was time to put it to the test. As I maneuvered through rocky terrain and muddy puddles, the Rubicon's performance left me in awe. Its smooth handling and gripping power surpassed my expectations.

Rubicon vs. Sahara: A Comparison

Reflecting on the Rubicon's performance, I noted the stark contrast to my Sahara. While both capable, the Rubicon navigated obstacles with greater ease, lacking the creaky noises characteristic of the Sahara. I could feel that low gear ratio pulling the Jeep over the rocks with so much ease. 


Attempting to articulate the Rubicon's allure, I found myself at a loss for words. The experience was simply unparalleled, marked by smoother rides, enhanced power, and superior grip

A Day to Remember

The trail ride unfolded as a day of camaraderie, adventure, and gratitude. Amidst the Appalachian Mountains, I connected with fellow Jeepers, indulged in a delightful turkey dinner, and most importantly, shared precious moments with my son.

As the day drew to a close, I cherished the memories forged amidst the trails. With the Rubicon, I discovered not only a vehicle of unparalleled performance but also a gateway to unforgettable experiences and cherished bonds.
