This ever changing 2015 JKU started as a show build for SEMA a couple years ago. Mark (Sarge) Schleipfer’s had a dual purpose when building this JK. Sarge originally wanted to showcase MTX audio products in this JK at SEMA and then quickly repurposed it as a prerunner/chase “truck”. Fast forward to present day and with a lot more upgrades, Sarge now has a self-sustaining overland rig with a shower! Sarge’s friend, Todd Douglas from Desert West Outdoors made the build all happen from the initial concept.
Within that last couple of years Sarge’s JK has evolved into a well-equipped Overland JK that is a home away from home. Sarge’s first upgrade for overland travel was the KC M-Racks that carries his Kayaks and other gear for his long-haul adventures. The KC-Macks has integrated scene lights which helps light up camp where ever it maybe. Sarge also added rear facing chase lights for when he wants to use his rig as a chase truck.
To further his night travels, Sarge’s JK lights the way with Pro6 light bar, KC FLEX LED Quad pillar lights and KC Gravity® LED Pro 7” Headlight. The ICI Magnum front bumper nicely integrates with KC FLEX™ 20″ light bar and the KC Gravity G4 LED fog lights. From there, Sarge’s overland rig is setup with KC Cyclone Rock Light Kit should he need to traverse some rocky terrain.
To ensure creature comforts of home, Sarge collaborated with To Extreme Off-road trailer and hooked it up with 23 Zero Overland Tent, Outdoor Road Shower, Samlex America Solar Products, KC Cyclone work lights and additional accessories (see below).
