There are very few off-road enthusiasts these days that have the passion and take the time to create something special. Enter Ball and Buck. Ever heard of them? From their website, they were established in 2008…they are an outfitter of sorts. They believe in quality over quantity. Mostly they are a maker of fine clothing…clothing for the outdoorsman.
“Our founder, Mark Bollman, comes from a long line of outdoorsmen and sportsmen. His father, grandfather, and great grandfather all share a supreme love of the outdoors – something they shared with Mark from a very young age. From hunting ducks in Michigan, fly fishing the great rivers of the West, and camping in the Smokey Mountains, the outdoor lifestyle isn’t just an inspiration for Ball and Buck, but rather is baked into every product and decision we make as a company.”
From premium footwear, to shirts and jackets, these guys hand produce some fine items…they are like the Jeep vs a Hyundai off-road…no comparison.
Which brings us to their latest creation, the Ball and Buck Jeep CJ-8 ARB Overland Edition. Available in four colors: Coronado Sand; Everglades Green; Chesapeake Grey; and Sutton Black.
From the creators: The new Ball and Buck Jeep CJ-8 Scrambler is here. For this launch we built upon our custom Jeep program that began in 2020, with an offering focused on adventurers and overlanders who want to get off the grid in style. In partnership with ARB, Quadratec, Raceline Wheels, BF Goodrich, Gunner Kennels, Kentrol, and builder Bird Dog Buggies, the new ARB Overland Edition includes over 15 exclusive features for a truly one-of-a-kind build.
Each Ball and Buck Signature Scrambler is made to order with an original Jeep CJ-8 that was first introduced in 1981 and produced in very limited numbers through 1986. We source these original vehicles and begin their full frame-off restoration process, incorporating modern technology that improves drivability, functionality, and comfort while maintaining the original appearance.
These reimagined Jeeps, hand-crafted by Kyle Smith of Bird Buggy, incorporates the latest trail-tested overland products from ARB like a safari snorkel air intake, the ARB base rack system with attached awning and hi lift jack, custom steel bumpers with front and rear shackles, an on-board air compressor, and ARB high intensity LED lighting to name a few. For the first time, outdoorsmen, Jeep loyalists and overland afficianos who appreciate the classic 1980’s Jeeps can purchase a turn-key overland vehicle that will provide the perfect balance of luxury and off-road prowess.
