Jeep Wrangler new - Twin peaks

Read more on:

Jeep Wranglers are for real men, goddamnit. Real
men who make fire and eat their steak rare and defecate in arboreal areas.

That’s why Jeep Wranglers can go to the top of the
world
. That’s right, partner. Two Jeep Wranglers have just set the
record for the highest altitude ever reached by four-wheeled vehicles. Put that
in your Queer as Folk-watching pipe and smoke it.

Carrying a team lead by Mattias Jeschke, the two Wranglers
climbed 6,648 metres to the rim of the Ojos del Salado volcano in Chile.

With the exception of Goodyear MT/R tyres and electronic
measuring equipment, both the Wranglers were stock Rubicon models packing
3.8-litre V6s.

The Wranglers took six days - six gruelling days - to scale
the Andean volcano and were described by Jeschke as
 “unbeatable”.

And that’s the verdict of a real man.
