Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Ultimate

The 2008 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Ultimate represents a concept vehicle with 392 HEMI from Mopar which best combines the best off-road machine ever offered by Jeep, with high style and materials. The Mopar features of the exterior comprise tubular side steps, exterior mirrors, door handles, hood hinges, fascia overlays, fuel filler door, taillamp guards as well as tow hooks. A wildly experimental Liquid Charcoal Pearl Coat paint, completes the special look of the exterior. However, the interior takes the Wrangler's story to a whole new level, boasting accessories and sports bags together with seating surfaces which appear to be clad in durable orange mesh fabric and dark slate gray Nappa/Province leather. The infotainment system comprises DVD screens for passengers in the front and rear, while the 392 HEMI crate motor ensures authentic performance on the trail.

The Jeep Wrangler Ultimate with 392 HEMI from Mopar is a concept vehicle that answers the question "how far can you go with the new Jeep Wrangler?" Beginning with the all-new Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon®, the design team set out to create the best of the best â€" combining high style and materials with the best off-road machine ever offered by Jeep.

The suspension is enhanced with a 3-in. lift to clear the massive 35-in. BF Goodrich Mud Terrain tires mounted on custom, polished Alcoa Forged 18-in. wheels. The exterior is chromed out courtesy of Mopar:

fuel filler door
taillamp guards
tubular side steps
exterior mirrors
tow hooks
door handles
hood hinges
fascia overlays

To complete the look, the exterior is coated in a wildly experimental `Liquid Charcoal Pearl Coat` paint.

The Wrangler Ultimate`s real story is its interior. Taking cues from rugged adventure sports bags and accessories, the team created a high style and detailed interior compartment that is as tough and beautiful as the exterior. Seating surfaces are clad in durable orange mesh fabric and dark slate gray Nappa/Province leather â€" bound with a heavy black-leather baseball stitch. Instrument panel details are treated to a stunning Argent Pearl/Satin Silver paint combination, reinforcing the machine character for which Jeep is known. The interior is also home to the exclusive MyGIG™ Multimedia Infotainment System. There are also DVD screens for passengers in the front and rear.

To provide authentic performance on the trail, the team also dropped in a 392 HEMI crate motor.
