Haha. I learned to drive when I was 14 on a manual jeep, and daily drove a Porsche 964 Targa to high school. I am definitely not one of the many who canít even think of a 3rd petal.

Has anyone added swivel board racks to a Wrangler roll bar? We got another house with an owned slip in a community marina. I was looking at golf carts or low speeds electric vehicles to drive to the marina and realized I could get a used Wrangler for about the same money. Figure the Wrangler would be better especially if I could add swivel board racks.

I have to echo and emphasize NOT A GOOD IDEA! I have lived in South Texas for a lot of my life, and traveled internationally extensively for work. The worst conditions I had experienced personally for corruption and travel safety was West Africa. But it doesn't nearly compare to modern day Mexixo. I currently do business's (construction equipment sales) with companies in Brownsville, Laredo, Del Rio, etc. who sell across the border. They personally won't cross.
If you fly to places like Cabo, Cozumel, etc. everything is fine. But I wouldn't give them a chance in Hell after crossing the Border of making it through any of the northern Mexican States with any money, the Jeep, and maybe their lives.
If they have the money and are determined, the best advice would be to contact the Cartel that controls the area they are transiting, and hire a local cartel "travel companion", to ensure safe transit.

By knowing or finding someone you trust who does business down there that can get you to the right people. All that matters is the money. Even if you contracted a personal guard, there is no guarantee he wouldn't lead them into a robbery and leave them in the middle of Nuevo Leon naked and afraid if not dead.

For what it's worth, I understand that once you get South of Mexico City things are much better. It's the northern Mexican States that are a problem. The Cartels are making millions a day trafficking drugs and people North. They won't have any patience for a couple of Gueros in a Jeep on Holiday.
