Jeepin' The Last Frontier

In 2008 my wife and I moved to Alaska. Shortly after we got into offroading. We bought a 2002 Jeep Wrangler, made some minor modifications and started wheeling. This was our first trip, Knik Glacier. It was an all day trip with several river crossings and some deep snow. The only vehicle that got stuck was the suburban. Ours is the little white Jeep.

At the Glacier


Suburban stuck in Jim's Creek.


Me crossing Jim's Creek.




Playing in the snow.


Half way up the hill.


Very cold and windy.

So jealous you have a Jeep and live in Alaska....life is good isn't it? I dream of Alaska at least 7 days a week lol. I sold my 08 fully loaded Jeep Sahara last year before I went to hike the Appalachian trail....real sad part is that it had a lifetime warranty. Nice pics of the Jeep and Happy Trails!

Life is good, but I don't own the Jeep anymore and next week we are moving to Pensacola Florida. Sad to leave Alaska, but can't wait to relax on the beach.

Well if you decide to get another Jeep the 07' and up models are amazing IMO! Congratulations sir, from one great place to another.

Yeah my wife has an 07 Cherokee and we thought it would be cool to get an 07 4 door Wrangler in the same color. Kinda gay I know. lol I loved the Wrangler, but traded it for the truck.



It was worth it I think. Thanks just wish it was our decision.

Man that's a sharp looking truck!!! No shame in trading your color matched Jeep for it. Sorry about the forced move, hope all turns out well!
