Afzal Kahn and Chelsea Truck Company have given this rugged off-roader a premium twist

The Jeep Wrangler is one of the most sought-after vehicles for tuners and aftermarket companies, thanks to its mod-friendly nature. While Mopar and Jeep Performance Parts offer hundreds of accessories for this off-roader, there are a lot of aftermarket companies that customize it in their unique ways as well.

One such unique, impressive build comes courtesy of none other than Afzal Kahn of the Chelsea Truck Company. Although the SUV is right up there in terms of ruggedness, what makes this different is how luxurious it is on the inside, something that’s uncommon on the Wrangler.

What Makes The Chelsea-Kahn Built CJ400 Special?

This military-inspired truck is given a new exterior 3D Texture Black Military paint. It features a four-slot grille up front with exposed carbon fiber and a vented hood for the engine to breathe. Called the CJ400, the SUV also has horizontal-running LED headlights. The steel bumpers seem to have a matte, anodized finish to them.

While the SUV is structurally the same, Kahn did add stuff like 20-inch Mondial Retro Wheels painted in the same shade as the rest of the body. These tires are wrapped in Cooper Discover All-Terrain 3 tires. The fuel filler cap is also swapped for one with the Chelsea Truck branding. At the back, the tailgate-mounted spare tire is wrapped in a Chelsea-branded cover that also incorporates the rearview camera. To wrap the changes on the outside, Kahn has replaced the stock exhaust system with Quad Crosshair Exhaust with 100 mm tailpipes finished in black ceramic.

On the inside, the CJ400’s ‘Volcanic Vesuvius’ cabin reeks of luxury.

The seats, door and center armrests, and the glovebox are reupholstered in 3D modular quilted leather. This orange shade is quite contrasting to the black shade on the outside and there’s nothing subtle about it, but it looks super classy. There are some orange accents on the center console as well that complement the seats.

Powering this right-hand-drive Jeep Wrangler is a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder turbocharged engine that makes 272 horses and 295 pound-feet of torque. Power is sent to all the wheels via an eight-speed automatic gearbox.

This Wrangler CJ400 is based on the Sahara trim and features a Command-Trac four-wheel-drive system instead of Rubicon’s Rock-Trac four-wheel-drive system.

Chelsea Truck Company is charging £59,999 for this Jeep Wrangler CJ400, which is approximately $78,300 as per the exchange rates at the time of penning this article. It seems a little too steep for what’s on offer, but it comes with a big name and that itself commands a hefty premium. It must also be noted that this is a pre-worshipped 2019 example that has had an owner before and has 1,400 miles on the odometer.
