Jeep Wrangler Rubicon King

The 2006 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon King made its world premiere at the annual Specialty Equipment Market Association trade show, appearing to its enthusiasts as an amplification of Jeep's most capable off-road machine. It is defined by extra ground clearance due to its new 4-inch lift provided by Superlift Suspension. Its outstanding features include grille and fender flares trimmed for extreme clearance, radio delete plate, military spec tow and trick lighting.

The annual Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) trade show has witnessed the debut of a number of cutting-edge vehicles from Chrysler Groups SkunkWerks team in the past few years. This year will be no different, as Mopar and the SkunkWerks team will debut new custom vehicles at SEMA.

An amplification of Jeep's most capable off-road machine. Taking full advantage of the 4:1 ratio Rock-Trac transfer case and Tru-Lok equipped Dana 44 axles, the Rubicon King utilizes massive BF Goodrich 37 x 12.50-17 TA Krawler tires mounted on Mopar/Hutchinson beadlock wheels. Superlift Suspension provided its new 4-inch lift for extra ground clearance and Warn-supplied new 9.0 RC Rock Crawling Winch.

Custom features include relocation of the spare tire where the back seat used to reside, fender flares and grille trimmed for extreme clearance, trick lighting, military spec tow shackles and radio delete plate. Other features include American Expedition vehicle's new heat-reduction hood and rear corner guards.
