Jeep Wrangler 4xe Concept highlights Jeep Performance Parts Potential
Mopar introduced seven head-turning custom concepts to kick off this year’s SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) Show. The fleet of custom vehicles and hundreds of performance parts and accessories will be on display inside Mopar’s dedicated exhibit in the Las Vegas Convention Center, Nov. 2-5.
“With its dedicated enthusiast audience, SEMA is the best place to showcase our full catalog of quality-tested, factory-backed performance parts and accessories,” said Mark Bosanac, North America vice president, Mopar Service, Parts & Customer Care. “These seven new custom vehicles demonstrate the passion, creativity and innovation of the Mopar team.”
Following is the Mopar take on the Jeep 4xe Wrangler:
Jeep Wrangler 4xe concept
The Jeep Wrangler 4xe concept showcases how passionate off-roaders can build upon the award-winning plug-in hybrid electric vehicle with factory-backed parts and accessories from Jeep Performance Parts (JPP).
Starting with the industry-first JPP 2-inch lift kit with FOX shocks specifically tuned for the new Wrangler 4xe, the Wrangler 4xe concept rides on JPP Beadlock-capable Wheels with functional Beadlock Rings, mounted with BFGoodrich KM3 37-inch tires.
Custom underbody rock lights illuminate the ground below at all four corners so the driver can see and avoid damage from rocks and debris.
A JPP stamped steel bumper features a custom single-hoop winch protector with an attached LED light just above a Warn winch.
A JPP Gorilla Glass windshield offers up to three times the strength of a stock windshield. A pair of JPP 5-inch, off-road, LED lights sit at the base of each A-pillar. Both LED lights use a concept A-pillar bracket that allows the driver’s side light to fit around the plug-in charging port door on the fender.
The premium Ivory Pearl exterior color extends to the JPP tube doors. JPP rock rails and all original-production black accents have been painted a distinctive, Dark Neutral Metallic Grey outside and inside the vehicle. Custom fender and hood graphics add to the aggressive, yet premium exterior appearance.
In the rear, a JPP Swing Gate Hinge Reinforcement allows a full-size spare wheel and tire to be mounted on the swing gate and a JPP CHMSL (Center High-Mount Stop Lamp) Relocation Kit provides a third brake light in the center of the spare tire.
Striking Mopar Blue Katzkin leather seats with tungsten stitching distinguishes the custom interior that includes a concept, three-piece JPP vinyl floor, featuring four drain plugs for easy cleaning.
A custom JPP instrument panel accessory rail system securely holds mobile devices, such as cell phones or cameras, in place. For the driver, stainless-steel JPP pedal covers feature black rubber pads, adding plenty of traction to the accelerator and brake pedals. In addition, JPP door-grab handles provide easy entry and exit.
Inside the tailgate, a custom trail-rail management system features multi-position cargo loops to safely secure and carry gear while a JPP swing-gate flip-down table adds a useful flat surface. A custom on-board compressor is also integrated into the tailgate for any air inflation needs.
