No Trailer Queen: JKS Mfg.'s Battle Proven Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon JL [Video]

Logging nearly 30,000 miles in its first year, JKS Manufacturing's 2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon has been put through the paces. Used to test items such as the company's bolt-on coilover conversion and assorted suspension components, the JL known as Project Clifford has been driven (not trailered) all over the U.S. It also served at our ride for the 2018 Nitto Tire JL Experience. In this video, we catch up with JKS Mfg. test pilot and company rep Justin Mclean to get the low-down on the Jeep.
