    Mopar leaves its mark on the new Jeep Wrangler JL by showcasing its parts catalog

    The folks at Jeep used the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show to debut the long-awaited Jeep Wrangler JL. They intentionally stirred up some hype by releasing a few photos during the SEMA show. Now that Jeep has unveiled the new Wrangler, we have an in-depth video and a photo gallery above to show you just what the 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL is all about. Check out the Mopar-modified Wranglers!

    One of the display vehicles in the Jeep booth was a Mopar-modified 2018 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Unlimited. The parts from the Mopar and Jeep catalog installed on this Mojito Green beauty are below:

    2-inch lift kit Cold air intake kit
    Big brake kit Wrangler snorkel
    Warn® winches Fender flares
    Tow strap kit Skid plate
    Rubicon® steel bumpers CHMSL relocation kit
    Rock rails Tailgate reinforcement system
    Performance crate axles Oversized spare tire carrier
    LED off-road lights And more…

    Mopar built these heavy-duty Jeep parts tough to withstand off-road punishment. As the OEM designed these parts, they are guaranteed to fit your vehicle without major snags or hang-ups. In a few cases, well-known brands left their touches to enhance the floor models. For instance, winches are essential Jeep parts for any and all off-road expeditions, period. Naturally then, they found it fitting to fit Warn winches with Rubicon steel bumpers on the  Mopar-modified Wranglers.

    A couple years ago, Alpine developed a weather-proof high-performance audio system for the JK. They designed their system to stand up to sand, silt, water and still sound amazing. That same system, with a few minor improvements, is now available for Wrangler JL.

    The Jeep brand has a deep history and a loyal following. For the next generation Wrangler, the trick was finding a balance of modernizing the rugged off-roader while remaining true to its heritage. The photo gallery below reveals a lot of the details built into the next-generation Wrangler.

    1. Derekr! Did any of the TFL crew get to sit in the New 2018 JL Jeep Wrangler or Unlimited? If so did Jeep make the front seat leg room more comfortable? The pic’s looks like the upgrade flattened the hump on the transfer shifter floorboard hump next to your feet? Did they finally make this Jeep JL more comfortable?

      1. Hey Joe,

        We were at the Jeep booth different times and I didn’t see Roman get inside the Wranglers. I can’t say if the new generation has more front seat leg room or if it is more comfortable overall.

        1. Thanks for the honest truth. Maybe the new JL Jeep Wrangler’s will be at the Silicon Valley Auto Show in January and I can check it out? Oh and sorry I spelled your name wrong Derek. My Bad. (-5pts Sp)

    2. They will sell every one of them.With truck and SUV,CUV all selling north of 40,000 dollars. Nicely equipped is the future. And with cell phones approaching 1800.00 why blink at a 50,000 dollar Jeep.Auto loans are fast approaching 8-10 years now. Diesel 3/4 and 1 tomorrow trucks over 67-87 thousand.So your house is the most expensive next your ride followed by 4 phones for the family and of course expensive internet,cable,UFC.And the Dow jumps to 24,000. Ain’t it fun being in a capitalist society.LOL
