Frank, or FKreider as he’s known on Expedition Portal, will be running a very unique Jeep Wrangler YJ during the Vermont Overland Trophy Challenge. Frank’s YJ had heart transplant and now lives with a Mercedes-Benz diesel motor under the hood. He’s also going to be pulling a trailer built to provide the much needed cargo space that the YJ is lacking. This trailer is being constructed by him and a friend and they hope to turn this into a business venture to provide regular guys with an offroad ready utility trailer without having to go through the hassle of trying to source an old rusted military M101 utility trailer. The combination of a diesel motor in a short wheelbase vehicle pulling a stout and nimble trailer could be just the right combo to score well in the Vermont Overland Trophy Challenge. For more info on the trailer be sure to check them out at Rugged Path Trailers.
**** UPDATE **** Frank will not be able to drive in the Vermont Overland Trophy due to some severe burns received during a fire in the shop. He still hopes to make it for the send off on Wednesday and the closing of the event on Sunday. Best wishes on a speedy recovery, Frank! **** UPDATE ****
