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.

Nothing special on J7, its just perfectly made appealing. Looks like a military issued vehicle with off road capability. Its suspension lifts and tires made it more gorgeous.

This is one hell of a jeep, rock solid and surely it can take the pain staking punishments on off road.

Wow, the luxury and entertainment options are stripped off the car eh? Well, I have read a lot about changes in the cars look and even it’s height but why aren’t there any changes on it’s performance? No engine upgrade or something?
