The Chelsea Truck Company, by KAHN Design, is synonymous with giving some truly astounding makeovers to Wranglers, Defenders & G Wagons. They recently took the wraps off of their latest mod, based on the Jeep Wrangler, which looks really menacing. As ever, they have created something really special with the Black Hawk variant for 2021.
2021 Jeep Wrangler Black Hawk by Chelsea Truck Company
What Makes the Jeep Wrangler Black Hawk Special?
Using a Wrangler Rubicon as its base, the exterior on the all-new Black Hawk now features a distinctive shade of Black 3D Military Paint, which contrasts well against the carbon fiber four slot front grille that features a 3D mesh pattern. You can see that the paint now has a certain texture.
There’s also a distinctive hood with slats, a RUBICON Badge, and wider carbon fender flares at both ends. The body kit overall gives the Jeep a brawny look. Other notable changes that the Chelsea Truck Company has done are a brand new gasoline filler cap along with a spare wheel cover along with a rearview camera, which wears the Chelsea brand proudly.
A custom exhaust system featuring 100 mm ceramic black pipes guarantees that anyone who hears this Wrangler realizes almost immediately that it is far from standard.
A new set of Mondial Retro Alloy Wheels also finished in a shade of 3D Texture Black Military Paint - 9x20” sit on top of large nubbly, Cooper Discoverer STT Pro tires at all four corners.
On the inside, the owner of this particular Wrangler has gone with a striking shade of Volcanic Vesuvius on the door armrests and the quilted 3d Modular leather seats. If the orange isn’t your thing, Chelsea Truck Company will also happily install an interior to your taste and color of choice.
Wanna get your hands on a Chelsea Black Hawk Wrangler? Well, be prepared to pay up, as this modified SUV won’t come cheap.
