Fiat Chrysler parts division Mopar dropped three custom fitted Jeeps into the Frankfurt Motor Show last week. This incursion amply demonstrated to show goers and a worldwide audience on the internet how far you can go to personalize your Jeep. Enter Wrangler Rubicon Sunriser, Cherokee KrawLer and a yet to be released in Australia, Renegade Trailhawk.
Wrangler Rubicon Sunrise would be amply suited for release during this Australian summer, but who really knows.
Rear Tyre mounting in matching colour looks great
The Wrangler Rubicon Sunriser has a 4-inch suspension lift, matte-orange paint, a double-tow-hook front bumper and half doors. (Half doors are a no cost option, but try getting your dealer to order one!) It’s fitted with a strong engine skid plate and a set of “beadlock wheels to keep the tyres from spinning around the rim” Beadlock tyres are suitable for those times when you’re actually rock crawling or sand groping and have to lower the tyre pressure.
Cherokee KL with Mopar focus becomes a KrawLer – get it?.
Fitted up with optional suspension upgrades, Krwaler is more capable offroad in the TrailHawk verison. This vehicle is running BFGoodrich 255/80/17s, which points to some handy traction off road or doing beachwork. KL of course runs the 3.2 Pentastar V6 and 9 speed auto transmission. Wouldn’t we love this to have a handy 6 speed manual?
This Mopar Jeep Renegade.
And why didn’t we get a special name for this one? Probably because it’s too new and no-one had the time to think of something appropriate. Underbody protection is fitted to the trail rated vehicle as well as some stylish 17” wheels. Think of Renegade as the P Plate entry into all things Jeep. What a great place to start.
