With over 200 available accessories and Jeep® Performance Parts in the Mopar catalog for the Jeep Wrangler, the Wrangler continues to be the most modified vehicle in the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) lineup. About 98 percent of Wrangler vehicles are customized with at least one product from the Mopar portfolio. So when Mopar invited us to lunch last week with Mopar Express Lane Dodge Charger SRT HELLCAT NHRA Funny Car Driver Matt Hagan, they were sure to make sure Matt had a Moparized vehicle at his disposal.
This vehicle in question was, of course, a heavily Mopar-modified Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon. We were lucky enough to get some time with the Wrangler and let’s just say, we were impressed. The Mopar/Jeep Performance Parts catalog can not only make the Wrangler more capable on and off the trail, but the accessories equipped on this Wrangler give it a much more aggressive stance.
With a Mopar 2-inch lift kit and a set of 17-inch Jeep “Gear” performance wheels wrapped in 35-inch BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain T/A KM3 off-road tires that the Wrangler looks ready to tackle any trail. Up front, this Mopar-modified gets a bumper-integrated Warn winch and 7-inch LED push bar mounted off-road lights, which are controlled by auxiliary switches located in the center controls.
The new Mopar roof mounted roof basket allows your outdoor gear to be stored up high and secure. Mopar “1941” side graphics and aggressive Mopar rock rails add style to the side profile of the vehicle. Outback, the Wrangler gets a Mopar center high mounted third brake light relocating kit and Mopar re-enforced tailgate hinge allows the much heavier 35-inch spare tire to fit on the hatch with ease.
Inside, the Mopar team added some helpful accessories to make the next off-road adventure trip even easier. As soon as you get in you will notice a set of “Wrangler” logo equipped door sill guards and a set of Mopar all-weather mats to protect your Wrangler from mud, snow, or sand. For those who struggle to climb over the high door openings on lifted Wranglers, people will appreciate the Mopar grab handles in the front and rear to help assist pulling yourself up into the truck.
A rear cargo tub allows you to stow your wet gear as well as the Mopar off-road tow bag which includes a heavy duty tow strap for pulling your friends who are stuck out on the trail. Mopar also included their tailgate table setup that opens out to create a utility space and beverage holder, and folds up for storage. Lastly, Mopar included their Jeep-themed dog kennel for bringing the family pet out on the trail.
