On episode 42, we bring you another pre-Vermont Overland Trophy Challenge interview and this time its with Joe Safford. Joe was recommended for the interview by his brother, Jim or JimS as he’s known on Expedition Portal. They are going to be competing as a family with both Jim and Joe pulling driving duties of their own vehicles. Their father will be pulling c0-driver/navigator duties and one of Joe’s sons will also be attending.
Joe will be driving a Jeep Wrangler TJ which he calls a “RubiClone” which is a pretty popular setup. He’s taken a stock TJ and replaced the key components with stock Rubicon components. The newest addition to the setup is the Conquer Trailer. From the sounds of things, Joe has a great team and a well prepped rig for the Vermont.
