The Jeep Wrangler Xtreme Recon Package Makes its Debut
Jeep and its legendary 4×4 capability got yet another moment in the spotlight as the automaker brought its go-anywhere attitude to the 2021 Chicago Auto Show. Open-air freedom is back and better than ever on the 2021 Wrangler model thanks to the all-new Xtreme Recon Package, complete with 35-inch tires and Sunrider Flip Top for Hardtop. The all-new performance package has an MSRP of $3,995 and includes BF Goodrich KO2 all-terrain tires, swing gate reinforcements, 17-inch by 8-inch Beadlock capable wheels, a 1.5-inch factory suspension lift, and a 4.56:1 axle ratio.
“As an icon built around 80 years of unmatched 4×4 capability, the Wrangler has always pushed the limit of what a Jeep can do off-road, and the new Xtreme Recon Package with 35-inch tires straight from the factory pushes that limit even further. While the Xtreme Recon Package sets the benchmark for 4×4 capability, the easy-to-use Sunrider Flip Top for Hardtop fortifies Wrangler’s open-air spirit,” said Jim Morrison, Vice President, Jeep Brand North America.

Customers can order the Jeep Wrangler Xtreme Recon package for the Wrangler Rubicon Unlimited powered by the 3.6-liter V6 engine that’s paired with an automatic transmission and eTorque. Additionally, the all-new Wrangler Rubicon 392 can also be had with the Xtreme Recon package. Production begins in August of 2021 at the Toledo Ohio Assembly Plant. Jeep also promised a new 4.88:1 axle ratio for the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon later in 2021 as well. When paired with a six-speed manual transmission, this axle ratio offers an incredible best-in-class 100:1 crawl ratio. Such an increased crawl ratio makes for improved wheel torque and control when traversing off-road obstacles.
Sunrider Flip Top for Hardtop
Designed to fit on all Wrangler vehicles regardless of trim, the new Sunrider Flip Top for Hardtop gives buyers a front-row soft top that easily flips back for an enhanced open-air driving experience. The Sunrider Flip Top is priced at $895 and features ultra-premium black twill fabric that’s normally found on high-end luxury convertibles. The new ready-to-install top comes with mounting rails and hardware included and is easily installed in place of the hardtop Freedom panels.
