    Mopar Recon Jeep Wrangler gives permission to come aboard | Fox News

    "Along with a selection of off-the-shelf components that includes half-doors, rock rails and high-clearance flat fenders, it’s been fitted with prototype 8-lug beadlock wheels and a prototype 4.5-inch long arm lift kit to help it get it through hell or high water.

    A 6.4-liter Hemi V8 replaces the stock 3.6-liter V6, and Dana 60 axles front and rear put the power down through a 5.38 ratio."

    EDIT: Now with pictures!

    Looks like it's trying too hard. It's a pretty woman with too much make-up, too tight of dress and too high heels.
    She would look better in just a T-shirt and jeans.

    Gotta disagree. That is how the Rubicon should come off the assembly line.

    -Long arm lift
    -Beadlocks
    -Dana 60's
    -Monster V8
    -Proper sized man tires

    I wonder how much that thing would cost? Would cost you a shit ton of money to tack all that on top of a stock JK. I like it! Would be right at home in my neck of the woods.

    I agree with the mechanicals. But the decals "Heat Exhaust" and "Push button to open" come off as a little corny.
    Similar to the C.O.D. version from a couple years ago; very cool Jeep, just a bit too much jewelry fro my tastes.

    I like it, but I don't like that it's store bought. Half the fun of owning a Jeep is modifying it the way you want it. I enjoy a vehicle more when it's got my blood and sweat in it.

    Yeah I could do with out that. But if it is a package deal I'll take it. :D I like it better than the COD version though.

    Needs a little radar thing that beeps like a submarine has, but for rocks.

    I modify stuff when it breaks. Plus a V8 swap and installing a long arm lift is out of my league. :pimp:

    Leave off the stickers and the fancy interior and I'd be a customer. Pending they do a 2 door version and offer different colors.
