Driving on paved, urban roads and highways can get boring. At some point, most of us have had the desire to take our car into the mountains or the desert and drive around over hills and rivers and rocks, getting a thrill that is just not comparable to every day driving.

#5: Jeep Rubicon Hard Rock Edition
When you think off-roading, there’s a good chance that Jeep is the first brand name that comes to your mind. Since being launched in 2003, the Jeep Rubicon has been one of the premier off-road vehicles around, with a look that is just begging to be taken off the beaten path.
The 2015 Rubicon Hard Rock Edition highlights the latest innovations that Jeep has put into the car, while still maintaining much of the design technology that has made the Rubicon a favorite of outdoor adrenaline junkies for more than a decade.
This car comes ready to take on dirt, sand, mud, rocks, and of course, the standard asphalt upon which we generally drive. The Rubicon is available in the standard edition and Hard Rock edition, and both models come with impressive Dana 44 Axles, a 4:1 transfer case, a swaybar disconnect system, and more.
The Hard Rock Edition, however, comes with extra bells and whistles, such as tow hooks, rock rails, and additional bumper protection. All of these features serve to make the 2015 Jeep Rubicon Hard Rock Edition a joy to drive on standard roads, and on roads where normal drivers do not go.
