This 1978 Jeep CJ-7 has truly seen the world, taking on a one-of-a-kind adventure from Tierra del Fuego in Argentina all the way to Prudhoe Bay, Alaska on Mark Smith’s “Expedicion de las Americas”. It has the battle scars to show for it.

This may be one of the simplest Jeeps this week in Moab, Utah at the 2021 Easter Jeep Safari – but it may one of the most significant and coolest.

In this video, Roman chats with former Editor-in-Chief of the Overland Journal and current President of Adventure Architects LLC Chris Collard about this Jeep and its amazing history.

Update: A former version of this article erroneously listed Chris Collard as current Editor-and-Chief of Overland Journal. He resigned in 2018.

And here is a very detailed account of that epic Jeep expedition. This video describes the Darien Gap jungle trek in detail – thanks to Overland Bound.
