Earlier this year the Jeep® brand released its new Xtreme Recon package for Rubicon and Rubicon 392, a 35-inch tire and wheel option aimed squarely at the all-new 2021 Ford Bronco Sasquatch package. While the Xtreme Recon seemed like a great response to the Sasquatch package, the Sasquatch package is available across most of the Bronco’s lineup where Jeep’s Xtreme Recon package only focused on the more top-tier Wranglers. This meant the more budget-friendly Wrangler buyers were left without an alternative for the Bronco Sasquatch.
That changed today, as Jeep announced the addition of the Xtreme Recon package to the 2022 Jeep Wrangler Willys. The 2022 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Willys 4×4 with the Xtreme Recon package includes the following equipment…
- LT315/70R17C (35-inch) BFGoodrich KO2 all-terrain tires
- 17-inch by 8-inch Beadlock capable wheels
- Swing gate reinforcement
- 4.56:1 axle ratio
- 1.5-inch factory suspension lift with uniquely tuned shocks
- Anti-lock four-wheel-disc performance brakes
The Xtreme Recon package allows the Wrangler Unlimited Willys to deliver an approach angle of 47.4-degrees, breakover angle of 26.7-degrees, departure angle of 40.4-degrees, ground clearance of 12.9-inches, and a water fording capability of 33.6-inches, all of which are best-in-class.
The Willys model gives the Wrangler a heritage feel with a standard black grille, matte black “Jeep” badge, black “Trail Rated” badge, heritage style “4-Wheel Drive” swing gate decal, and historic “Willys” hood decals.
“The new Jeep Wrangler Willys with Xtreme Recon Package gives our passionate customers another great option for straight-from-the-factory 35-inch tires,” said Jim Morrison, Vice President, Jeep Brand North America. “Named after the original Jeep utility vehicle, the Willys holds special meaning to the Jeep brand, and we’re excited to enhance the new Wrangler Willys with 35-inch BFGoodrich KO2 tires.”
When the $3,995 USD ($4,995 CAD) Xtreme Recon package is added to the price of an entry-level 2022 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Willys 4×4, the U.S. Manufacturer Suggest Retail Price (MSRP) comes to $39,435 (plus $1,495 destination charge). For Canadians, MSRP will come to $56,230 (plus $2,095 destination charge).
Ordering for the Wrangler Unlimited Willys 4×4 with Xtreme Recon package on 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 eTorque equipped models in October. Those models ordered in October will start production at the Toledo Assembly Complex in December.
