“The Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 10th Anniversary Edition is a tribute to 10 years of Wrangler Rubicon history, and to the Jeep brand’s most passionate enthusiasts,” said Mike Manley, president and CEO – Jeep Brand. “This Wrangler Rubicon is for them. It is a unique vehicle that we expect will long be sought after, a Wrangler that offers an unprecedented level of capability once only attainable by long hours of custom aftermarket preparation crafted in the garages of the most avid Jeep enthusiasts in the world."
Manley added that with the release of the new Rubicon, Jeep created a "stunning new example of the Wrangler," which is available with red leather interior, and a wide range of standard off-road equipment which is also debuting for the first time on a production vehicle. The Jeep can also be souped up even further by adding Husky Liners® car floor mats to keep the interior looking clean, as well as Husky Liners® mud guards to keep the exterior looking fresh while getting the car dirty.
The Rubicon features black, steel, winch-ready bumpers that have removable end caps and a ride height that is an inch and a half higher in order to accommodate the BF Goodrich KM2 265/70R17 tires mounted on 17-inch aluminum wheels. In addition it is a dual-intake Power Dome hood, to keep the engine cool on those desert rock crawls, tow hooks on the front and rear, and Mopar rock rails to protect against trail damage.
