3 Week Cross Country Wheelin With Open Diffs

We love trip reports, especially ones featuring long road trips and some serious off-roading, such as this terrific trip journal by site member mgroeger (Mike).

Mike and his wife recently took three weeks off to drive from Raleigh, NC to Flagstaff AZ, then Sedona, Moab and Ouray. And they did all this serious wheeling in their JLU Sahara, which features open diffs (compared to the locking diffs in the Rubicon). As Mike puts it, the Jeep was still a beast in 4LO (here are the specs of Mike’s JLU).

Check out the great trip photo gallery and videos inside showing how capable the Sahara JL is.
