Baja Racing News LIVE SEMA JEEP News

Jeep Wrangler JT
Built from the military version of the all new Jeep Wrangler, the Jeep Wrangler JT showcases just how flexible this new platform can be. Revealed at the 2007 Easter Jeep Safari in Moab [Utah] , it dominated the steep climbs and descents on the slopes of the Hell’s Revenge trail. Its 4x4 capability was established as it negotiated the slick hot tubs and waterfalls – at times, almost completely vertical to the ground. Beginning with the new platform from the Wrangler Unlimited, the design team managed to create a very nimble, trail-savvy Jeep with a 1.5 meter pickup bed and an easy-to-handle removable hardtop.

Off-road enhancements include:
3-in. suspension lift provided by Superlift
35-in. BF Goodrich Mud Terrain tyres
Rear bumper and tyre carrier from Mopar
Front bumper from Mopar
Warn 9500ti winch

The Jeep Wrangler Ultimate with 392 HEMI® from Mopar
The Jeep Wrangler Ultimate with 392 HEMI from Mopar is a concept vehicle that answers the question “how far can you go with the new Jeep Wrangler?” Beginning with the all-new Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon®, the design team set out to create the best of the best – combining high style and materials with the best off-road machine ever offered by Jeep.
The suspension is enhanced with a 3-in. lift to clear the massive 35-in. BF Goodrich Mud Terrain tyres mounted on custom polished Alcoa Forged 18-inch wheels. The exterior is chromed out courtesy of Mopar:
fuel filler door
taillamp guards
tubular side steps
exterior mirrors
tow hooks
door handles
hood hinges
fascia overlays
To complete the look, the exterior is coated in a wildly experimental ‘Liquid Charcoal Pearl Coat’ paint. The Wrangler Ultimate’s real story is its interior. Taking cues from rugged adventure sports bags and accessories, the team created a high style and detailed interior compartment that is as tough and beautiful as the exterior. Seating surfaces are clad in durable orange mesh fabric and dark slate grey Nappa/Province leather – bound with a heavy black-leather baseball stitch. Instrument panel details are treated to a stunning Argent Pearl/Satin Silver paint combination, reinforcing the machine character for which Jeep is known. The interior is also home to the exclusive MyGIG Multimedia Infotainment System. There are also DVD screens for passengers in the front and rear. To provide authentic performance on the trail, the team also dropped in a 392 HEMI crate motor.

Jeep Wrangler All-access
The interior of the Jeep Wrangler All-access has been upgraded with premium materials and paint. To give it “trail and off-road” credibility, the designers vamped it up with Mopar performance parts including Rubicon Express 4-inch suspension lift, front and rear bumper with tyre carrier, rock rails, cold air intake and Warn 9500ti winch. American Expedition Vehicles supplied its new Pintler sheels. Painted “Surf Blue,” the Wrangler All-access also features 35-inch BFG Mud Terrain tires.
