Wrangler special editions

by David Zatz on

The Jeep Wrangler Rubicon X is new for 2014, with a winch-capable bumper, wider rock rails, and higher level of standard content. It starts with the Rubicon model (for both two and four door Wranglers), and adds BF Goodrich KM 255/75R17 tires on 17-inch Rubicon wheels, painted satin black with polished faces, and a red Jeep Wrangler “icon” logo on the inside pocket. The X uses black steel off-road bumpers, with removable front caps (to increase clearance) and a winch-capable design. A dual-intake Power Dome hood aids engine cooling.

Red tow hooks are installed in front and rear, and Mopar rock rails give added protection from trail damage (there is also a black fuel filler door). Red-silhouette “Rubicon” decals are on both sides of the hood. The Wrangler Rubicon X comes with a Premium Sunrider soft top and is available with a black three-piece Freedom hard top or body-color hard top. Black leather seats, heated in front, are standard, along with an X-styled gauge cluster, Vehicle Information Center (EVIC), Mopar slush mats, and unique axle locker and sway-bar disconnect switches.

The Jeep Wrangler Freedom III is the Sport S with graphics and a built in $250 donation to the United Service Organizations (USO). Jeep Wrangler Freedom III has sparkle silver 17-inch wheels, gray grille and bumper inserts, body-color wheel arches, star-in-circle fender badges and hood decals, rock rails, black tail lamp guards, special fuel fill door, and Sunrider soft top with tinted rear window. Inside, it has black fabric seats with silver embroidered logos, silver accent stitching on the steering wheel and accents, grab handles, and slush mats; the grab handles are new for 2014 Wrangler. New paints include Amp’d, Anvil, Copperhead, Flame Red, Granite Crystal and Hydro Blue (Freedom III only). Billet Silver, Bright White, Black and Dune continue on for 2014.
