Just a couple of months ago, we talked about the 2021 Jeep® Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon 392 JL370 from off-road industry leader, American Expedition Vehicles (AEV). While the AEV JL370 is the most aggressive package that AEV offers, there is a JL350 package that also amps up the off-road capability of the iconic Wrangler (JL) SUV, without sacrificing the Wrangler’s driveability on the street.
Now, while AEV does offer a JT350 package for the Gladiator, the JL350 package is very similar but tuned more for the workings of the Wrangler. AEV has performed the package on several different variants of the Wrangler, but we were quite pleased to see that they have also included the all-new Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon 4xe in the upfit as well.
The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 4xe’s propulsion system combines two electric motors, a 2.0-liter I-4 engine and 8-speed automatic transmission for nearly silent propulsion and enhanced 4×4 off-road capability, without EV range anxiety. This arrangement enables the Trail Rated Jeep Wrangler Unlimited to retain running gear that includes solid front and rear axles, a full-time two-speed transfer case, fully articulating suspension, and 30 inches of water traversing capability.
The “E Selec” modes let the driver tailor the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 4xe propulsion to the trip: Hybrid, Electric, and eSave, which conserves the battery pack charge for later use. The Wrangler Unlimited 4xe’s 17-kilowatt-hour battery pack recharges in about two hours on Level 2 (220-volt) power and about 12 hours on Level 1 (110-volt) household power.
The Wrangler Unlimited 4xe’s propulsion system is good for 375 horsepower (280 kW), 470 lb.-ft. (637 N•m) of torque combined.
The JL350 adds a number of goodies to the Rubicon 4xe’s off-road arsenal, such as…
- AEV RX Front Bumper
- AEV Non-Winch Cover Plate
- AEV Front Bumper Skid Plate
- AEV 7000 Series LED Off-Road Lights

This Wrangler Unlimited 4xe is now expedition-ready, thanks to AEV’s DualSport RT suspension system which provides the optimal balance for load-carrying capacity and ride quality. The DualSport RT suspension includes AEV frequency-tuned, triple-rate coil springs to provide 2-inches of additional front and rear ride height and a set of custom-tuned Bilstein shock absorbers.
For those who like to explore after the sun goes down, visibility is essential for finding your way in the dark but also for keeping an eye out for wildlife or road hazards in remote areas. AEV 7000 Series LED Off-Road Lights were designed for all-terrain travel and provide an exceptional balance of clarity and distance for improved driver safety and peace of mind.
