I’ve been behind the wheel of thefor a little less than an hour and I’ve already counted 14 slams against the rock rails or skid plates. But a high bang count is to be expected when you’re on one of the most notorious off-road routes in the country: the Rubicon Trail.

Located just outside Lake Tahoe, California, the Rubicon Trail is only 22 miles long, but it’s not for the faint of heart. This is wherefirst developed the Wrangler Rubicon. The obstacles are continuous, whether it’s a set of rock stairs, a boulder-strewn riverbed or a steep granite slope. Trail-side trees have bark scraped away from previous adventurers. Granite rocks are scarred with the vestiges of yesterday’s skid plates. The Rubicon Trail tests man and machine like nothing else. People show up here in Mad Max-style rigs with a full roll cage, 40-inch tires and gears low enough that they practically drive themselves.
And I’m in a bone-stock 2018 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon. I’m sure I’ll be fine.
