Edmontonion Howard Babiuk’s 2011 Jeep Wrangler JK Unlimited Rubicon is best described in his own words: “Your dream ride is what you make of it. Mine is always evolving and I can’t see parting with it anytime soon.” After he bought his Jeep stock, he followed the advice he gives to those who ask which accessories to add first: “If you are buying a 4x4 to get out on the trails, the first thing I always recommend is a winch and quality recovery

gear.” Howard doesn’t have a single favourite brand, he has several: ”I believe in quality equipment that won’t let you down. Poison Spyder, Warn, Rigid Industries, Rhino Rack, Tepui, ARB are all at the top of my list. ”His favourite accessories are: “Of course, the latest ones. I love the ease of the roof top tent from Tepui and the Foxwing awning. Pop open the tent and it’s set up and ready to go.”

Howards’s Jeep is built to enjoy the outdoors. “We love to hang out with anyone who has a passion for the hobby, but we generally go out with a small core group of friends. It’s easier to get out and explore with a small group.“ ”Every year we take it down to Moab, Utah for Easter Jeep

Safari and we spend the rest of our time exploring the Rocky Mountains.

We love finding the old trails into abandoned mining sites, getting a glimpse into the past.” Camping in the mountains can be risky: “Camping out 7,000 feet up a mountain when an early winter storm hit with 100 k/hr + wind gusts. That was the end of our summer ground tent.“ His plans are those of

- Roll cage and Seats - PRP 5 Point Harnesses

- ARB On-board Twin Air Compressor - Ram Mounts for iPad and iPhone - Pioneer Platform Rhino Rack, - Tepui Kukenam Roof Top Tent - C/W Annex - Rhino Rack Foxwing Awning - JW Speaker Headlights

a true outdoor adventurer: “We will be on the trails by Invermere this weekend, but looking forward to Easter Jeep Safari in the spring. We are hoping to hit the Rubicon Trail in California sometime in the next year or so.“
