No word yet on Australian availability, however off-road enthusiasts in the U.S. can now place an order for the rugged Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Recon Edition.
Based on a Wrangler Rubicon, the Recon Edition picks up an array of off-road focussed gear including strengthened axles, beefed-up diff covers (front and rear), shortened rock rails and 35” tyres.
Underneath, Jeep has lifted the Wrangler Rubicon by half an inch, added Tru-Lok locking differentials with 4.10 front and rear axle ratio and a Rock-Trac transfer case.
With a six-speed manual transmission the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Recon Edition has a crawl ratio of 73.1:1.
While some of the cosmetic enhancements include Granite Crystal-painted alloy wheels, low gloss black grille, and bumpers, black leather seats with red stitching, and a dual-vented Power Dome bonnet with ‘Rubicon’ decals.
“With an array of beefed up off-road components, the new Rubicon Recon provides even more legendary Jeep Wrangler capability,” said Mike Manley, Jeep boss.
“With unmatched capability and a unique appearance, Rubicon Recon is the perfect Wrangler for our most loyal, die-hard off-road enthusiasts who love to tackle the most demanding trails.”
