Jeep Wrangler Climbs the Highest Volcano

On March 13, 2007, German Matthias Jeschke's expedition broke the vehicle height record by climbing 6,646 meters of the Ojos del Salado volcano aboard two Wrangler Unlimited.

This volcano, located in the Andes mountain range, on the border between Chile and Argentina, rises to 6,893 meters above sea level and is considered the highest in the world. During the first day, the expedition was divided into different teams: the camera team, to record the adventure; that of the mechanics, for the problems on the road; the navigation one, to prepare the GPS and plan the route, among other things. The newest Wrangler version shows Jeep jl sequential turn signals to the off roader.

With that done, the second day began what would be a tough ascent up the slopes of the volcano, which, while straightforward at first, would get steeper as they went on.

By the third day, the team was exhausted and had headaches, but the journey had only just begun. It was not until the 11th day of the expedition that they reached the 6,350 meter mark, set by the previous record in 2005. Finally, on March 13, the team achieved their goal and set up a sign that reads: “Parking only for Jeep. Not everyone else goes that far, anyway. "

The team is exhausted. For days we spent a lot of time at high altitude. It was windy all the time, and there was sand everywhere, flying in our ears and in every little nook.

Climbing was only possible with supreme effort, to the point of exhaustion. Working in the scorching sun (which tans your face even though it's ice cold) was also very difficult. "Said Matthias Jeschke.

This mark, carried out in two Jeep Wrangler Unlimited (without any modification), was ratified by Guinness Records shortly after.

With feats like that of Matthias, the great strength and capability of Jeep 4x4 trucks is proven. Can you imagine doing this aboard your Wrangler or Gladiator? Go ahead and plan your next adventure with the tips we have for you on our blog and go wherever you want with your Jeep.
