Mopar’s Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Makes Us Want To Go Off-Roading

When the latest-generation Jeep Wrangler leaves the factory, it is already a rather capable off-roader. However, the various parts developed by Mopar make it even better at handling difficult terrain.

As the new Wrangler was being developed, Mopar spent more than 100,000 hours creating a catalog of over 200 parts and accessories for it, giving owners a near-limitless scope for personalization.

To help promote the series of parts it’s creation, Mopar has dropped an awesome clip of a two-door Wrangler Rubicon hitting the trails with a number of Mopar customizations.

The most significant alteration made to this Wrangler has been the fitment of a Jeep Performance Parts two-inch lift kit to boost the ground clearance. The off-roader has also been outfitted with a set of special beadlock wheels and huge 35-inch tires, helping to ensure that it can tackle almost anything you throw at it.

Elsewhere, the Wrangler in question includes a new front bumper add-on that incorporates an uprated winch and seven-inch Jeep Performance Parts lights that deliver more than 8000 lumens, which will enable you to tackle the rockiest terrain even in the darkest of nights.

The Wrangler also features what Mopar calls a ‘bikini top’, which is essentially a thin mesh that covers up the holes left when the Wrangler’s roof is removed, so you can now enjoy the outdoors in your Wrangler without worrying about being fried by the sun.

All in all, these modifications make the Wrangler one extremely appealing off-roader, so much so that we almost want to jump behind the wheel of one and get muddy. Almost.

    Last June I got a Wrangler Unlimited Sport. I added a Rancho 3.5″ lift, 35″ Falken AT3W tires, and a few other goodies. The only downside to the cheaper Sport is the axle ratio, which is only 3.45 compared to the Rubi’s 4.10. However, with the 8sp auto, it’s still a very capable offroader. I take the family out on the trails around Colorado almost every weekend.

    The only thing I’ll say on the Mopar stuff is that a lot of it is overpriced. That tail gate reinforcement is the worst offender at over $600. However I’ve heard nothing but good things about their lift kit.

    I am genuinely fond of the Wrangler…this one looks gorgeous.

    I wonder, if they release it in Australia, will it need engineering to legally put it on the road. Trying to find an engineer that will pass my 3 and a bit lift in NSW atm. Near impossible.
