Jeep Adds Wrangler Rubicon Recon Edition

Jeep Adds Wrangler Rubicon Recon Edition to Lineup

Feb 06, 2017

North America’s favorite mall-crawler is getting some upgrades, with the new Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Recon Edition set to hit showrooms later this month.

The Rubicon Recon Edition rides half-an-inch taller than the standard Wrangler Rubicon, and features a beefier front axle and rock sliders that have been shortened to accommodate tires as big as 35 inches. In a disappointing twist, the top-of-the-range Wrangler only comes fitted with 32-inch BF Goodrich rubber from the factory.

The front axle, a locking Dana-44 unit to match the one around back, features strengthened tubes and end forgings, while both axles get cast differential covers. Like the rest of the Rubicon pack, the Recon Edition’s front and rear axles feature differentials that lock electronically.

Available in seven colors, the Rubicon Recon Edition is fitted with a bunch of gloss black exterior accents, including the grilled and bumpers, the front of which is prepped to be fitted with a winch. It can also be fitted with body-color fender flares and a vented hood.

Inside, the Recon Edition gets a unique gauge cluster with a unique info screen that includes additional data points like oil pressure, individual tire pressure, and transmission and coolant temperature. It also comes with a standard eight-speaker stereo, heated seats finished in black leather upholstery, and tons of red interior accents, including the axle locker and swaybar disconnect switches.

The Wrangler Rubicon Recon Edition will be stickered at $39,145 ($47,040 in Canada) for a two-door version and $42,945 ($49,440 in Canada) for a family-hauling four-door when it goes on sale later this month.


Nitro Year: 2007 (1 of 91,815 sold in 07)
Nitro Model: R/T 4X4 Stone White
CAT-BACK Exhaust, CAI, Projector Head Lamps
Fully-Equipped w/all factory options
