2016 Jeep Wrangler $44,995
"Jeep calls their top-of-the-line Wrangler the ""Rubicon"" and one look at this 2016 Wrangler Rubicon and you know the term is appropriate. Furthermore, this lifted beauty is the limited 4-door version of the Wrangler line, combining supreme ruggedness with luxury that's rarely seen in trucks and SUVs as tough as this beast. But wait, we're not done. This killer Jeep was then taken over the top and turned up to 11 with a host of exterior upgrades and performance suspension parts that makes it worthy of drawing big crowds everywhere it goes.
Building a 4-door Wrangler seems like a no-brainer, but it took decades for Jeep to get around to doing it. However, the Jeep Wrangler JK was worth the wait and the rugged Rubicon upgrades (named after the Rubicon Trail, because every Wrangler Rubicon is specifically designed to conquer the famed trail right off the factory floor) was THE package to have if you wanted to dominate on and off the road. But with some choice upgrades inside and out, this particular Jeep was taken EVEN further, resulting in a one-of-a-kind machine we can't stop drooling over. Dressed in sinister Billet Metallic Silver paint, it's almost too pretty to go out bashing around in the rough, but then again, with Poison Spyder providing those burly Brawler bumpers, the front skid plate, front and rear fenders, inner fenders, rockers, and the body armor throughout, maybe that was the intention all along. But if you do hit the trails, there's a lift of course, but also enough Rigid LED lighting to illuminate the entire Mojave. With just 48,007 miles on the clock (and much less on the upgrades), this 2016 Wrangler is essentially new in most any way that matters and finish quality is worlds better than the good-old-bad-old-days of AMC and vintage CJs. And despite the upscale accommodations inside and out, it's still pure Jeep, with doors and a top that come off, and a windshield that does indeed fold flat. Color matched Big Poison Spider all steel fender flares cover the oversized rubber, a powerful Warn winch and tow hooks are built into the front bumper, and a matching Moto Metal wheel is mounted out back, so it looks awesome from any angle.
Jeep has domesticated the Wrangler inside for many years now, but the Rubicon takes a big plunge into luxury with a stitched black interior that's elegant yet still tough as nails. The dash is more upscale than ever before and is packed with useful gauges that include all the important functions. Details like A/C, cruise control, a tilt steering column, and an upgraded Sony AM/FM/AUX/BT/SAT/Apple & Android CarPlay head unit are all part of the package, so you don't have to sacrifice comfort for that legendary off-road capability. Upgraded Rockford Fosgate speakers (they replace all the originals, and include a subwoofer built-into a custom box in the cargo area) were installed during the build, so the stereo system sounds amazing, even with the top down and doors off. The controls are intuitive and easy to use, and the Rock-Trac 4-wheel-drive system is ready to go at a moment's notice and can handle anything thanks to the beefy axles below. And adding some length and two back doors does wonders for the JK's practicality, so it no longer needs to be relegated to ""weekend toy"" status. Heck, there's even great storage out back!
Chrysler's 3.5 liter V6 provides plenty of grunt for the Rubicon, moving the 4x4 unlike anything that came before it. It's buried under a lot of plastic shrouds, so it's not much to look at, but as a low-mileage truck that's always been pampered and shown often, it starts instantly and drives like, well, a new Jeep. Sophistication is up and it's a lot smoother and more polished than you'd expect. A 5-speed automatic transmission pulls down decent fuel economy and it still has legendary Jeep abilities thanks to a Rock-Trac transfer case that still packs a low range for really rough going. The beefed up and thoroughly upgraded suspension is built for battle as well, with a 4-inch Rancho Crawler short-arm lift kit, electronic Tru-Lok axles fore and aft (4.10 Posi in the rear), Rancho steering stabilizers, an electronic sway-bar disconnect system, Rancho shocks, and Rancho cast-aluminum differential covers fore and aft that all work together to get through the rough stuff with relative ease. The suspension is obviously far from stock but don't let that fool you, it's still plenty capable for everyday driving as well (this isn't some temperamental rock crawler), and there's even a decent grumble from the exhaust. Gorgeous 18-inch Moto Metal wheels were fitted in place of the rather bland stockers and then wrapped in 35x12.50x18 Federal Mud-Terrain radials to finish the look.
Essentially a new Jeep with killer mods to set it apart, all for a price that'll save you big bucks over doing it all yourself. Call today!
