FCA wants a piece of the Wrangler’s aftermarket pie.

Anybody not living under a rock knows Jeep Wrangler owners love customizing their rigs. The aftermarket industry for the Jeep has exploded in the last decade and Jeep has made moves to finally get into the action. But now Jeep is getting ahead of the curve with its new 2018 Wrangler JL by offering more than 200 parts and accessories right from the start, long before third-party aftermarket companies can even begin developing items for the all-new off-roader. Under the Mopar brand, Jeep and its Jeep Performance Parts (JPP) division have teased these accessories at the 2017 SEMA Show.

Of course, SEMA is the natural place to debut parts and accessories. But, in order to debut these new Mopar and JPP parts, Jeep needed to show the actual 2018 Wrangler. That’s why Jeep did a soft launch on Halloween with only three photos of its new model. As for the parts and accessories, they range from graphics to lift kits and everything in between. And, because of the 2018 Wrangler’s new roll bar design, Jeep can now offer a range of roof racks. The list also includes off-roading items like a Warn recovery winch, rock sliders, and beadlock wheels. There is plenty of others, so keep reading for everything Jeep has announced so far.

Mopar & Jeep Performance Parts

The parts have been developed by Jeep engineers to work with the 2018 Wrangler and have undergone countless hours of testing.

Besides being available before anything from aftermarket companies, the biggest advantage to Mopar and JPP parts is the connection to Jeep. The parts are not only warrantied and installed by Jeep dealerships, but they also do not void the Wrangler’s new-vehicle warranty. In line with that, the parts have been developed by Jeep engineers to work with the 2018 Wrangler and have undergone countless hours of testing.

Since the 2018 Wrangler shares almost zero parts with the outgoing 2017 Wrangler JK, these Mopar and JPP parts are technically all new. However, most are just modernized to fit the new Wrangler. A few, on the other hand, really are completely new to the Mopar and JPP portfolio. That roof rack previously mentioned is one, as it fits the Wrangler’s new roll bars. Jeep hasn’t been able to offer a roof rack on Wranglers in the past. Another new part is a screen protector for the 7.0- and 8.4-inch Uconnect infotainment system. It’s a first for Mopar, likely because no other FCA vehicle really needs a screen protector for its infotainment system. Well, maybe the Ram pickups…

Mopar parts for JL Wranger
  • JPP is offering LED off-road light bars. There’s a five-inch bar with 4,080 lumens and a seven-inch bar with an impressive 8,000 lumens.
  • JPP also includes the brackets needed to mount them. JPP also has an auxiliary switch bank for controlling these lights and other accessories.
  • For those wanting a taller ride height for bigger tires, JPP has a 2.0-inch lift kit.
  • JPP rock rails are made from heavy-gauge steel and are coated with bedliner. They protect the rocker panels from trail damage and give a step for getting into the Jeep.
  • JPP’s beadlock-capable wheel is 17 inches in diameter and can be upgraded with the optional beadlock ring for holding the tire to the rim when ran at low pressures during off-roading. The wheels have a 12-mm backspacing and come in silver and black.
  • Mopar will happily sell you a Warn recovery winch at a markup over what you’d pay directly at Warn. Still, the dealership will install it for you, making the upgrade as simple as sliding the credit card or rolling it into the vehicle’s financing.

Other Add-ons

  • Those Uconnect screen protectors are designed to perfectly fit the 7.0- and 8.4-inch Uconnect system and keep scratches off the sensitive screen.
  • A molded cargo tray fits within the cargo area for organized storage of all the random items that tend to accumulate within a vehicle
  • Grab handles have a new design and are hard-mounted onto the roll bar unlike the Velcro-secured grab handles for the Wrangler JK.
  • Fuel Door covers can be had in brushed aluminum and satin black
  • All-Weather Floor mats help protect the carpet from rain, snow, sand, and mud. They are molded to fit perfectly within the footwells, too.
  • Mopar graphics add flare to the Wrangler. Available on the Sport trim is a 1941 graphic and an American flag-themed design for the hood. Another graphic for the Wrangler’s sides are available for all three trim levels and have a 1941 stripe and a silhouette themed after off-roading at Moab.
  • Tire covers allow for more expression on the Wrangler but still allow for the spare-mounted backup camera with a hole stitched in the center of the cover.

Of course, these are just some of what Mopar and JPP offer and we expect more accessories to be added as the months roll on. The parts and accessories are available at any Jeep dealership and on Mopar.com/jpp.

New Jeep Performance Parts for all-new Wrangler
All-new Jeep Wrangler owners who are serious about off-roading can choose from new additions to the Jeep Performance Parts product line. New Jeep Performance Parts LED off-road lights, available in 5- and 7-inch applications, pump out a maximum of 8,000 lumens, putting commercial and military grade illumination into the hands of hard core off-roaders.

The off-road lights mount to the frame rails, winch guard or windshield via new Jeep Performance Parts off-road light brackets. A new auxiliary switch bank featuring its own power distribution center offers an organized central area for operating accessories such as the off-road lights, winch and other electrical-powered items.

New, unique Jeep Performance Parts rock rails are thicker and wider to protect the body, and feature the same coating used on Ram Truck bedliners to add a non-slip finish. A Wrangler Rubicon off-road bumper guards the modern and renowned Wrangler profile, maintaining factory standards and properly harmonizing with the design aesthetics of the new Wrangler.

Available new beadlock-capable 17-inch aluminum wheels feature a 12 mm offset and accommodate oversize tires to help tackle off-road conditions. Additional 17-inch five-spoke off-road wheel options are available in silver or black, as well as a “gear” design inspired by the Jeep Performance Parts logo. A 2-inch lift kit offers additional off-road clearance and, when paired with Wrangler high-top fender flares, can accommodate oversize 37-inch tires for serious off-road adventures.

Mopar accessories for all-new Jeep Wrangler
The Mopar roof rack is offered for the first time on the all-new Wrangler. Lifestyle cargo carriers, including a ski, snowboard and bicycle carrier, mount to the roof rack to assist in transporting gear and recreational equipment.

Also a first is the Mopar tailgate table, which flips out to create a utility space and beverage holder and which folds up for storage. A new Mopar emergency first aid kit, improved to include individual pockets for kit contents, and a roadside assistance kit are also available.

New Mopar accessories available for Wrangler include mesh and solid bikini tops, fitting the vehicle’s open-air, fun-and-freedom character while delivering protection from the sun when the hardtop is removed. New screen protectors, a first from Mopar for any vehicle, block dust and debris from cluttering Uconnect 7- and 8.4-inch display systems and even help to enhance visibility.

A few of the many additional Mopar accessories available include vehicle graphics, tire covers available in a variety of styles and designs, all-weather floor mats, molded cargo trays, grab handles and fuel doors.

Mopar products for all-new Wrangler: Factory engineered, authentic quality
The Mopar brand’s line of Jeep Performance Parts and accessories for the all-new Wrangler was developed in close conjunction with the Jeep brand and product design office through extensive development, testing and validation.

The strictest standards and factory-exclusive data — information not available to the aftermarket — were used to seamlessly integrate Mopar parts and accessories with the all-new Wrangler and deliver proper fit, finish and quality down to the color, grain, look and line of each product.

“Virtually every Mopar product for the all-new Wrangler is new, redeveloped or redesigned,” said Gorlier. “Our large, new product lineup for this legendary vehicle showcases how the Mopar brand has evolved over 80 years to support our owners in customizing their vehicles to fit any lifestyle.”
