“After driving 6,000 miles through six countries in six months across West Africa, Dan Grec a.k.a. The Road Chose Me, is truly living the adventurous Jeep brand life.” – Jeep

We stumbled upon Dan Grec’s “The Road Chose Me” Facebook page via a post on Jeep’s Facebook and we were instantly obsessed. If you are a Jeep fan who dreams of adventure, this The Road Chose Me is a Facebook page you will want to follow. Dan Grec, the man behind the page is a writer, adventurer, and true lover of the Jeep brand who takes crazy trips and shares them along the way. This is his job (jealous, right?).

Dan’s latest adventure is a two year trek across the entire continent of Africa. He will ride roughly 80,000 miles and explore all kinds of new places in his modified Jeep Wrangler Rubicon. Check out some of the features and mods to his awesome Jeep Wrangler Rubicon:
