Exterior – 2018 Jeep Wrangler JK Rubicon Recon

When you visit your dealer near Denver, the one thing that will first stand out on the Rubicon Recon edition of the 2018 Jeep Wrangler JK is the unique exterior.

Everyone will know what you’re into with the unique RUBICON RECON EDITION badges mounted on the fenders. The hood is decorated with a reversed RUBICON decal. Personalize this edition even more by opting for the tan-colored Sunrider® soft top instead of the standard black version.

This Jeep edition comes with the 4:1 Rock-Trac® Part-Time 4WD System that comes with Tru-Lok® locking differentials for the front and rear. With the 4:1 low gear ration, you can crawl at a lower speed over rougher terrain to gain more control and more low-end torque for all the wheels. The Dana® 44 front axle is upgraded with heavy-duty forgings and military-grade axle tubes to maximize durability, rigidity, and strength. To guard the more vulnerable parts of the underbody, skid plates made of stamped steel cover the transfer case and fuel tank. This model sports the Trail Rated® badge, which indicates capability in five areas. Ground clearance includes an approach angles of 42.2 degrees, a breakover angle up to 21.2 degrees, and a departure angle of up to 32.5 degrees to make conquering broken trails easier. Water Fording allows you to cross rushing country streams or crowded city streets with up to 30 inches of water. With a 34.6-foot turning capacity in the two-door, you can negotiate tighter spaces while Articulation is enhanced by an available electronic sway-bar disconnect that allows the front wheel to drop by up to 20 percent. The last area is Traction, which is enhanced by Granite Crystal Aluminum Wheels measuring 17 inches and BSW Off-Road Tires.
