Now you can juice up the looks of the Jeep Wrangler with a new Mopar satin black grille. Mopar black grille for Jeep Wrangler is a direct, easy replacement to the production body-color grille, and also features the hood seal and a matching black Jeep badge.
The 2014 Jeep Wrangler delivers unmatched off-road capability with legendary four-wheel drive and is produced with more than seven decades of 4×4 engineering experience. Wrangler continues to offer a body-on-frame design, front and rear five-link suspension system, live axles, electronic lockers, and is one of the few mid-size SUVs that offer a six-speed manual transmission.
The 2014 Jeep Wrangler Dragon Edition is painted Black with a black body-color three-piece hard top. From there, the designers incorporated numerous Bronze Satin Gloss details found inside the front grille slats, headlamp surrounds and on the Jeep badging. The unique 18-inch five-spoke alloy wheels are matte black with a Satin Bronze high-gloss outer edge.
Available as a two-door Wrangler or four-door Wrangler Unlimited, the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon X is the most capable Wrangler in the Jeep line-up. Based on the Rubicon model, it is equipped with Wrangler’s part-time fourwheel- drive system that has electronic-locking front and rear Dana 44 axles that receive power through a Rock-Trac transfer case.
The Jeep Wrangler Slim concept offers maximum performance that is significantly lighter in weight. The Rock Lobster color exterior of the two-door Jeep Wrangler Slim features full doors and a hard top. Powered by a 3.6-liter V6, the Jeep Wrangler Slim has a 3:73 anti-spin axle. Rolling on prototype 17-inch Jeep Performance Parts forged beadlock wheels with Rock Lobster beauty rings, the Jeep Wrangler Slim features a special 10th Anniversary Rubicon front bumper, which complements the rear bumper, and is the lightest weight rear bumper that Mopar offers.
The Jeep Wrangler Flattop is a paradox of sorts. Its highly styled and refined body and interior completely belies its phenomenal off-road capability. Jeep designers took special care to give the Wrangler Flattop an upscale appearance inside and out, but bolted some of the most hard-core off-road gear available to Flattop’s chassis.
Following the popular Sand Trooper concept, which made its debut at SEMA in 2012, Mopar has created the Jeep Wrangler Sand Trooper II. The Sand Trooper II features a legendary 5.7-liter HEMI V8 to give it 375 horsepower and 400 ft.-lb. of torque. A five-speed automatic transmission sends the HEMI power to Mopar eight-lug front and rear Portal axles for added ground clearance. Jeep Performance Parts prototype forged beadlock wheels carry 40-inch off-road tires, giving Sand Trooper II its menacing stance.
Based on the 2013 Wrangler Rubicon, the Jeep Wrangler Stitch has been lightened to a parse 3,000-lb. curb weight, giving it a power-to-weight ratio similar to that of the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT. Jeep designers shaved weight where ever possible: the frame, axles, body and interior. The audio system and all heating and air conditioning components have been removed. The front seats are taken from the new 2013 SRT Viper and the rear seats have been removed. Sections of the body have been cut out, the doors have been removed, and the hood is a custom carbon fiber version of the one found on the Jeep Wrangler 10th Anniversary Rubicon.
The Jeep Wrangler Mopar Recon concept features a gray exterior and a little extra firepower with a 6.4-liter HEMI V8 crate engine from Mopar. The 470 horsepower engine is mated to a five-speed automatic transmission and Dana 60 front and rear axles with 4.10 gearing. The axles are suspended by a 4.5-inch prototype long-arm lift kit and roll on Jeep Performance Parts prototype forged eight-lug beadlock wheels with 39-inch off-road tires.
