Tactical Rides | Bug-Out Jeep Enforcer

A “tactical ride” is a rugged and reliable, specially equipped vehicle that is designed to be used by law enforcement officers, military personnel, security contractors and private citizens to operate on paved roads as well as in off-road and adverse conditions. And in the upcoming March 2014 issue of TACTICAL WEAPONS, author Nick Jacobellis has found the perfect, battle-ready Jeep.

Jacobellis writes, “I recently received several photographs of a Jeep Wrangler that has been turned into a tactical ride by my cousin Tommy. Tommy Jacobellis is a police officer with 30 years of experience who retired from the U.S. Air Force and Reserves as a member of the Security Police/Security Forces after serving in the Global War on Terror. My cousin is like many Americans who survived devastating hurricanes that destroyed his home on two occasions. Between his military, police and personal experiences, my cousin understands the need to be able to evacuate and survive in difficult times.

“After Tommy purchased a 2012 four- door, four-wheel-drive, Jeep Wrangler JK Sahara with a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine, he decided to equip his vehicle with certain optional features that turned his factory Jeep into a true tactical ride. These optional features include a Garvin G2 front bumper with a Warn VR 10,000-pound-capacity winch with a synthetic cable, a Garvin G2 rear bumper with a swing-away spare tire/tool and gas can carrier, a Garvin Wilderness trail rack, a 65-quart (27pounds empty) Yeti Tundra cooler, a Garvin Adventure roof rack with a cargo basket and ladder that is designed to enable you to remove the roof panels from a hardtop Jeep Wrangler, a 2-inch American Expedition Vehicles suspension lift kit and a set of 35-inch Goodyear Wrangler Duratrack tires mounted on AEV Savegre matte black steel wheels.”
