Two Mopar Jeep Wranglers revealed
Two Mopar fiddled Jeep Wranglers have been revealed at the LA Motor Show with everything fitted on them available to buy.
MOPAR HAS SHOWCASED an accessorised Wrangler Rubicon and Wrangler Sport at the LA Motor Show; Mopar announced its 200-strong product line-up for the Wrangler at SEMA earlier in the year.
“The Jeep Wrangler is one of the most versatile and customized vehicles in the industry,” said Pietro Gorlier, Head of Parts and Service (Mopar), FCA.
“A total of 98 percent of Jeep Wrangler vehicles are typically outfitted with at least one of our products (95% in Australia). We worked with the Jeep brand, engineers and designers to create an exclusive line of parts and accessories that perfectly match the new Jeep Wrangler, delivering unique functionality, style and factory-backed quality. The two customized vehicles at LA showcase our new product portfolio and empower owners to personalize the new Jeep Wrangler for extreme off-roading or for all-purpose lifestyle adventures.”
The accessorised Wrangler Rubicon gets a set of 2-inch-round steel tube doors while the Mojito Green exterior, a production option, is protected by new Jeep Performance Parts rock rails that are thicker and wider than previous offerings and augmented with a new, grippier coating like that used on Ram Truck tubliners. The 2-inch lift kit raises the Rubicon while BFGoodrich KM2 35-inch tyres wrap around new Jeep Performance Parts beadlock-equipped 17-inch aluminum wheels.
New LED off-road lights, available in 5- and 7-inch applications, pump out a maximum of 8000 lumens. The off-road lights mount to the frame rails or windshield via new Jeep Performance Parts off-road light brackets. A new auxiliary switch bank, standard on the Rubicon and a cost-option for other trim levels, features its own power distribution centre and offers an organised central area for operating accessories such as the off-road lights, winch and other electrical-powered items.
Interior customisations include redesigned Mopar Roadside Assistance and First Aid kits. Molle bags on the rear seatbacks and new Mopar grab handles are now hard-secured with fasteners to the sport bars, offering increased grip. And a screen protector, a first-ever Mopar product, protects the 8.4-inch Uconnect system display.
The Wrangler Sport has been enhanced with a roof rack, the first such Mopar product, is mounted to the hardtop and is accessorised with a cargo carrier.
BFGoodrich KO2 35-inch tyres feature Mopar 17-inch “Gear” rims. Jeep Performance Parts tube steps and a 2-inch lift kit add off-road touches, and like its four-door counterpart, the two-door Wrangler is also customised with the new spare tyre tailgate hinge reinforcement, CHMSL light relocation kit and off-road LED lights.
The black fuel door, new from Mopar, has been redesigned to incorporate styling cues of the all-new Wrangler. Mopar doorsill guards, grab handles and all-weather floormats round out the Mopar accessories.
