Re: Sailing around the world on a Wrangler

Be sure and outfit it with the latest Warn winch to retrieve the best rocna/manson/mantus/bruce/danforth anchor. Mount a 50 caliber on the rollbars to keep the pirates at standoff range. Are you going with the 4 or the 6 cylinder? Auto of manual transmission? At least you don't have to worry about the best dinghy or motor for it, just drive up on the beach!!! Flexible or rigid solar? Wind gen? Water maker? Well if it's just a 3 week trip I'm sure a YJ has plenty of tankage for that. Don't forget to post a crew wanted ad here for a nubile ex-stripper playmate gymnast that can stand watch and row a few thousand miles if you can't get the Jeep to plane with the spinnaker...

Don't forget to slip a tennis ball with a hole in it down the antenna to protect your gel coat, um... paint job.

Don't forget to document it with the Coast Guard and register it with the DMV before you set sail. Be careful off the Somalia coast too.

Already been done, by Cubans who converted a 1950s truck and other vehicles to cross the Florida Straits. (Yes, this is true.)

Run Sunbrella across the roll bars, it might get hot.

A couple cans of Flex seal will do the trick.
