Las Vegas, Oct 31, 2006 -
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.
Jeep Wrangler Rubicon King
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
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.
Not destined to be a show queen, it'll be put to the test in Moab
Utah during Easter Jeep Safari.
