The Black Hawk Expedition is based on a -door Wrangler. Chelsea has painted it in a Volcanic Moss exterior shade that has a 3-D texture to it. The signature seven-slat grille is swapped in favor of a four-slot grille with industrial mesh. The tuner has installed an Iron Man vented hood that looks a lot muscular than the stock hood. The front bumper is also replaced with an aftermarket unit.

In the illumination department, the Wrangler Black Hawk Expedition comes with LED headlights and daytime running lights. There’s also a LED light bar neatly placed on the roof, LED cube lights mounted on the pillar, and Tron ring lighting on the bumper. The fenders come with wide wing apertures at the front and back. The off-roader rides on 275/55 section Cooper STT Pro tires wrapped around a set of sexy 20-inch satin black wheels finished in 3-D texture paint. Chelsea likes to call it Mondial Retro wheels. Things at the rear aren’t too different. The spare tire comes with a Chelsea cover.

There are a few other notable changes made by Chelsea Truck Company. The Black Hawk Expedition comes with a Quad Crosshair exhaust system with 100mm tailpipes. There’s a split-level Targa roof, too. The SUV is also equipped with a lift kit, but the tuner hasn’t mentioned how high it is raised, but it’s not any more than two inches.

On the inside, Chelsea has completely reupholstered the Wrangler.

The seats come wrapped in orange quilter and perforated leather. It is completely contrasting from the exterior and will certainly be a hit or a miss. The center glove box and the armrests on the door also receive the same treatment. Other than this, the Black Hawk Expedition comes with machine-finished aluminum foot pedals, stainless steel door sills, rubber floor mats, and an identification plate from the tuner.
