In North America, the “fourth” Jeep Wrangler (JL) is offered in eight special editions that form the Limited Edition line. Two of them imitate the army off-road vehicle, therefore they are called Willys and Willys Sport. By default, both rely on 32-inch Firestone Destination A / T2 tires. Now the Xtreme Recon package, previously available only for the top-tier Rubicon, brought 35-inch BF Goodrich KO2 tires (315/70 R17). Simply put, huge wheels have fallen in price. The package costs $ 3995, and together with Wrangler Willys – from $ 39 435, not including $ 1495 for shipping.
The 12.9-in. (328mm) Wrangler is intended as a surprise for the Detroit 4Fest, which will be held September 25-26 in Holly Village. Along with khaki (Sarge Green), Willys is painted in eight more shades with the same bonnet decals.
It was – it is. The package also includes a factory “lift” suspension by 1.5 inches (38 mm), “unique” shock settings, 17-inch wheels. The final drive ratio has been increased from 4: 1 to 4.56: 1. The angles of entry (47.4), exit (40.4) and the depth of the ford to be overcome (853 mm) have increased.
Orders for the Wrangler Willys Xtreme Recon will open in October, and production in Toledo, Ohio, will begin in December, so customers will receive vehicles in 2022. “Willys is of particular importance to the Jeep brand and we are delighted to be adding 35″ tires. For our customers, this is another great option straight from the factory, ”said Vice President Jim Morrison. In the first half of the year, 118 666 Wranglers (+22 537) were sold in the USA, 201 310 (-26 732) were sold in 2020.
