The Mopar design team revealed their "Moparized" Jeep and Ram Truck vehicles today at the 2010 New York Auto Show . All of the vehicles will appear at the 44th annual Moab Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, Utah on March 27th - April 4th, 2010.
The first on the list is the Jeep Wrangler J7, a custom car built off of a Wrangler Rubicon , but stripped of its carpet, fog lamps, alloy wheels and stereo system. Mopar cranked up this military-style vehicle with new front and rear steel bumpers, ‘helicopter hooks’, a heavy-duty tailgate and steel wheels.
In addition to the accessory changes listed above, the car also received a Mopar 2-inch suspension lift, 35-inch Mickey Thompson tires, and a unique Mustard Plug exterior paint.
Press release after the jump.
Built off of a four-door Jeep Wrangler Rubicon, the Jeep Wrangler J7 is designed to have the basic appeal of military-issued vehicles. The Mopar team removed standard content including carpet, fog lamps, alloy wheels and the stereo system before adding front and rear steel bumpers, ‘helicopter hooks’, a heavy-duty tailgate and steel wheels. Off-road capability is increased with a Mopar 2-inch suspension lift and 35-inch Mickey Thompson tires. The unique Mustard Plug exterior paint is highlighted with Jeep Wrangler J7 graphics.
