A guy named Dan turned his 2007 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited (4 door) Rubicon into “a house on wheels” to drive in Africa for 2 years. As he has already driven from Alaska to Argentina and knew exactly what he wanted his car to have for a comfortable travel/housing. Dan said: “My build focused on interior living space, strong 4x4, and it had to fit inside a standard 20-foot shipping container.” Here’s how his has transformed his Wrangler.
Using shipping containers as something other than cargo carriers is a very popular idea these days. They are perfect for temporary facility like, for example, vacation rentals. They are cheap and can be installed only a few meters away from the beach. Plus they can be modified in different creative ways and look awesome. This one is a perfect example of it.
