The actual vehicles the Special Forces use on their reconnaissance missions cost a lot more than the 40 grand this Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Recon edition costs. But I don’t think they would object if sue to budget cuts or whatever they get the Jeep instead. Point is, the Rubicon Recon is built to take some serious punishment.
Envisioned as one of the most off-roady versions of this model, the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Recon comes with a stronger front axle, enhanced rock rails and heavy-duty cast differential covers, plus rock rails that are shortened to accommodate up to 35-inch tires. There is also four-wheel-drive system with electronic-locking front and rear Dana 44 axles and a Rock-Trac transfer case with a “4-Low” ratio of 4:1, giving the Recon a crawl ratio of 73.1:1.
Other off-road highlights, which also contribute to the badass looks of the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Recon include a half-inch lift, new 17-inch Low Gloss Granite Crystal-painted aluminum wheels wrapped in 32-inch BF Goodrich KM off-road tires, optional body-color fender flares and a dual-vented Power Dome hood with a black-silhouette “Rubicon” decal on both sides. You can have the truck in Black, Bright White, Billet Silver, Firecracker Red, Gobi, Rhino and Granite Crystal.
Priced from $39,145 for the two-door model and $42,945 for the Wrangler Unlimited (four-door) model, the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Recon also has an exclusive interior with black leather heated seats with a “Rubicon” embroidered logo and a leather-wrapped steering wheel with red accent stitching, black vinyl-wrapped front door armrest and console lid with black stitching, red accent netting on front and rear door pockets and the center console, and red accent-colored seatbelts.
