A 2008 Jeep Wrangler JKU X 4dr 4x4 build by @steelblueburrojeeper

The BURRO is my Overland built Jeep. Much like a living Burro, it is way overloaded with overland inspired equipment, essential for off grid adventures. After only 2 years of dedicated overland build efforts it has come a long way and has seen a lot of miles off grid. It has an endless journey of upgrades ahead. It is by far my favorite vehicle purchase of all time and has served my family well from when bought new in 2008, as our Off Road / Overland Adventure Rig, till today. My goal is that it will be passed down generations.... unless I somehow destroy it before then, which is entirely possible!
