Jeep 4×4 capability is legendary, and the brand continues its leadership position as the most capable 4×4 in the world with the introduction of a Jeep Wrangler Xtreme Recon Package available on Wrangler Rubicon 4-door and Rubicon 392 models.
Continuing the celebration of the brand’s 80th Anniversary this year, Jeep is elevating its capability game yet again with the introduction of the new Jeep Wrangler Xtreme Recon Package at the 2021 Chicago Auto Show on July 14.
“For the first time ever, the new Jeep Wrangler Xtreme Recon Package delivers 35-inch tires straight from the factory,” said Jim Morrison, Vice President, Jeep Brand North America. “We have been listening to and watching our customers make this one of the most popular modifications to their Wranglers, and now we will deliver this exciting new package, along with an industry-first 100:1 crawl ratio, off the showroom floor at our Jeep dealerships.”
Swatting away any challenge from the new Ford Bronco Sasquatch – the Jeep Wrangler Xtreme Recon Package features:
- LT315/70R17C (35-inch) BF Goodrich KO2 all-terrain tires
- 17-inch by 8-inch beadlock capable wheels
- 4.56:1 axle ratio
- 1.5-inch factory suspension lift with uniquely tuned shocks
According to Jeep, the new package delivers Best-in-Class approach angle, departure angle, ground clearance and water fording capability:
- Approach angle – 47.4 degrees
- Breakover angle – 26.7 degrees
- Departure angle – 40.4 degrees
- Ground clearance – 12.9 inches
- Water fording – 33.6 inches
Jeep tells us that customers can now order the Jeep Wrangler Xtreme Recon package on both Wrangler Rubicon 4-door and Wrangler Rubicon 392 models.
Production will start in August.
For even more capability, a new 4.88:1 axle ratio will be available on the Wrangler Rubicon. When paired with the six-speed manual transmission, this optional axle ratio delivers a best-in-class 100:1 crawl ratio for increased wheel torque and control when navigating off-road obstacles.
The 4.88:1 axle ratio will be available for ordering later in 2021.
