Our very first official Rugged Rig inductee hails from way up north in Windsor, Ontario. Justin began his Jeep journey as innocently as the rest of us. He bought a Jeep because he thought it would make a pretty cool daily driver but with the added bonus of being able to strip the roof and the doors if the mood were to strike. What Justin never counted on was that he was embarking on a whole new way of life.
Justin has developed an acronym for his beloved Jeep JK that perfectly explains the difference that being a Jeeper has made in his life- Just Enjoy Every Possibility. Whether it’s trail riding, camping, or exploring the majestic outdoors with any one of several different groups he rides with, Justin has learned the true value of owning a vehicle with no limits.
“My Jeep gets me to work everyday, it gets me up the side of that mountain and it gets me through the roughest times in life.”… well-said, Justin Howling, well-said.
While the internet is full of well-built Jeeps that are shined and polished to perfection, I really prefer to see a Jeep in its natural habitat; getting used & abused in the manner for which it was designed. Justin seems to agree with me and he is really familiar with that filthy process. You can even check out his YouTube channel dedicated to his exploits where he lets you ride along on some of his wheeling adventures and see for yourself.

Justin is a great example of what the Jeep lifestyle is all about. There’s something about buying a new car and having it be a life-changing event that may only register with another Jeep owner. Coming to the realization that it’s Your Jeep. Your Adventure. and making the best of every opportunity you can to get out there and experience life is what it’s all about.
