Jeep Wrangler Islander Edition

Want tickets to the New York Auto Show? Want an all-new Jeep Wrangler Islander? Jeep has made it as simple as tweeting, but you have to make sure and study up on the 70 year old brand. Jeep’s “Tweet-to-Win” contest begins Monday, March 15, 2010 on their Jeep Brand Twitter page, www.twitter.com/jeep. The contest, scheduled for five days, will consist of answering Jeep-branded trivia questions. One question will appear in their Twitter page each day. The first person to answer the question in the correct format will win a trip for two to the 2010 New York International Auto Show . On Thursday, April 1st, the lucky winners will have a chance to dig for the “Golden Tiki” in a huge sandbox provided by Jeep. Whoever finds the “Golden Tiki” first will win a Jeep Wrangler Islander . Call me crazy, but I think this is an awesome marketing tool to create some excitement for the Jeep Wrangler Islander. Combining a popular form of online communication with a free car and tickets to an amazing auto show is just plain genius. Whoever thought of this should get a raise or at least a giant pat on the back.

Either Jeep is trying to catch on to the female demographic or they’ve just decided to use their advertising on promoting well-kept hair.

Either way, the new Jeep Wrangler commercial is perplexing to us, given the fact that the brand has always been synonymous with the words ’rugged’ and ’adventure’.

Apparently, the folks behind the ad decided to try a completely new angle for their commercial: girls fresh from a day at the salon riding a Jeep without their hairs getting all messed up.

That’s one way to hit your core demographic Jeep.

While we had heard a lot about the Jeep Wrangler Overland modified by Chrysler’s in house tuners Mopar, but we couldn’t fully appreciate the go anywhere and then camp anywhere Jeep until seeing it in person at the 2009 SEMA Show. The interior of the Jeep Wrangler Overland features water resistant Mopar front seat covers, rugged Mopar slush mats, a Daystar dash bin and lower switch panel that powers the added accessories. Enhancing the Wrangler’s off road ruggedness is a 3 inch lift from American Expedition Vehicles as well as a full traction rear sway bar. The added clearance allows aggressive 35 inch off road tires to be mounted on the 17 inch steel Mopar wheels. However the real beauty of the Overland is the full size tent that opens on the extended roof panel and an equally spacious shade providing tarp that gives it owners the perfect place to have a picnic while on safari.

Not much has been heard from Jeep in recent months, but that hasn’t stopped the brand from showing up at SEMA to unveil the Jeep Lower Forty concept. The off-road vehicle, which is based on the Jeep Wrangler , was fine-tuned by Mopar Underground and is powered by a 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine with a Getrag six-speed manual transmission that uses a Dana 44 axle in the front and a Dana 60 axle out back with both being fitted with 5.38 gears.

Jeep also took the liberty of adding mammoth 40-inch tires to the Lower Forty concept, which was done by taking away a number sheet metals from the vehicles and increasing the width of the fender by an inch and raising it up four inches higher to make room for the 40-inch tires.

Jeep also included a slew of other features for their Lower Forty concept, including the addition of a carbon fiber hood, a chopped windshield, a custom bikini top, and a new rear tailgate.

Additional features include a carbon fiber hood, custom bikini top, a chopped windshield, and a color-matched interior with Katzkin leather seating. You can read more details after the jump, and we have plenty of high-res photos in the gallery below.

Another Mopared Wrangler that is waiting in the wings for a SEMA debut is the Family friendly Off road 2010 Jeep Wrangler based on the 2010 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Unlimited. The all terrain vehicle is pained in Deep Water Blue and makes the use of a Mopar 2 inch lift kit and some massive 33 inch off road tires. The setup for the family friendly Wrangler is a bit similar to the Extreme version and includes parts from the Mopar performance mail order catalog like off road bumpers, differential Cover, skid plates, back door entry guards and a Mopar exclusive, two tone Katzkin leather seating complete with embroidered Jeep logos on the backrests.

Full options and prices after the jump.

Chrysler’s Jeep brand is getting a lot of attention from Mopar in anticipation of SEMA Show next week. Besides the Wrangler Overland that we brought to you last week, Mopar will also bring the Extreme Off-road Wrangler based on a Flame Red 2010 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon powered by a 3.8 Liter V6 that generates a maximum output of 202 HP and 237 lb-ft of torque. The list of customization options includes a 2 inch lift, cold air intake, heavy duty off road front bumper, off road rear bumper, backed out taillight guards and a custom designed heavy duty steel front skid plate; all from the Mopar parts catalog.

Mopar will present at the SEMA Show the Jeep “Lower Forty”, a customized model based on the Wrangler off-road. The vehicle is equipped with massive 40-inch x 13.5-inch tires mounted on Mopar’s 20-inch forged-aluminum wheels. Mopar added aggressive wheels and tires to a stock, two-door Jeep Wrangler Rubicon without the use of a suspension lift.

Custom front and rear fender flares are 1-inch wider and are located 4 inches higher than a stock Jeep Wrangler. A new one-piece carbon-fiber hood with a Jeep CJ-like power dome and an all-new drop-down tailgate stamped with the “Jeep” logo are added to complete the exterior design.

On the interior, an all-new roll cage is neatly integrated into the body tub and tied directly into the frame rails. The spare tire is relocated to the cargo floor and a custom cargo rack, supplied by Poly Performance, holds extra gear.
