Ahead of the 2018 Jeep Wrangler’s proper debut at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show, the brand actually showed off a host of Mopar accessories and performance parts for the SUV at this year’s SEMA show. Now, we know what they’ll look like after Jeep debuted two Wranglers outfitted with the parts during the LA Auto Show.
The first Mopar-modified Wrangler is a four-door Rubicon, and arguably the cooler of the two. Foremost, you’ll notice traditional doors are absent in favor of 2-inch-round steel tube doors. No mention of their potential for production, however. Elsewhere, production Mopar parts are found.
Up front sits a “stubby” bumper, and a Mopar winch kit, while a two-inch lift kit compliments high-top fender flares. BFGoodrich KM2 35-inch tires wrap around new Jeep Performance Parts beadlock-equipped 17-inch wheels that can also accommodate larger, oversized tires.
LED off-road lights attach via the frame rail or window with new Jeep light brackets to provide greater illumination at night, while a Jeep Performance snorkel helps feed cool air to the engine and keep water out during adventures that involve high-water. Moving around to the rear, Jeep fitted a new spare tire tailgate hinge reinforcement that can hold up to 37-inch tires. Additionally, the new Mopar Center High-Mount Stop Light (CHMSL) light relocation kit keeps the brake light visible when using the spare tire carrier, without interfering with use of the rearview camera.
And those are only the highlights of the impressive Mopar-parts laden SUV.
As for the second SUV, a two-door Wrangler Sport, plenty of Mopar and Jeep Performance parts are present as well. It starts with a Mopar roof rack for additional cargo capacity, though bike, ski and snowboard carriers are also available. The SUV also boasts tube steps and a 2-inch lift kit. BFGoodrich KO2 35-inch tires wrap the Mopar 17-inch “Gear” wheels.
The two-door Wrangler’s final trick is a tailgate table flips out to create a utility space and beverage holder.
Is there anything Jeep didn’t think of for the 2018 Wrangler? These two concepts show there isn’t much customers will desire when flipping through the accessories catalog.
