Jeep announces its plans in the near future which include a new Xtreme Recon package for Wranglers and Gladiators. Also in the news comes the addition of a 4xe trim across its whole SUV lineup. The automaker also unleashed an all-new Jeep Wrangler Xtreme Recon package which offers 35-inch tires straight from the factory. That’s not all, the Xtreme Recon package delivers best-in-class approach angle, departure angle, ground clearance, and water fording capability. Jeep is now accepting customer orders for the Xtreme Recon package, production is set to start at Jeep’s Toledo Assembly Plant in August 2021. Jeep also adds a Sunrider Flip Top for Hardtops which offers a new appealing look for the iconic open-air freedom that buyers love from the Wrangler.  

“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,” said Jim Morrison, Vice President, Jeep Brand North America. “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.”

Priced at a U.S. manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) of $3,995, the new Jeep Wrangler Xtreme Recon Package includes: 

  • LT315/70R17C (35-inch) BF Goodrich KO2 all-terrain tires
  • 17-inch by 8-inch beadlock capable wheels
  • Swing gate reinforcement
  • 4.56:1 axle ratio
  • 1.5-inch factory suspension lift with uniquely tuned shocks

The results: Best-in-class approach angle, departure angle, ground clearance, and water fording capability:

  • Approach angle – 47.4 degrees
  • Breakover angle – 26.7 degrees
  • Departure angle – 40.4 degrees
  • Ground clearance – 12.9 inches
  • Water fording – 33.6 inches

Buyers can now order the Jeep Wrangler Xtreme Recon package on the Rubicon Unlimited 3.6-liter automatic with etorque and the Wrangler 392. A new 4.88:1 axle ratio will be available on the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon later in 2021. When paired with the six-speed manual transmission, this optional axle ratio delivers a best-in-class 100:1 crawl ratio for increased wheel torque and control when navigating off-road obstacles. The 4.88:1 axle ratio will be available for ordering later this year on Wrangler Rubicon two-door and four-door models equipped with the 3.6-liter V-6 engine.

The Sunrider Flip Top for Hardtop is available on all Wrangler models, the new Sunrider Flip Top for Hardtop offers a front-row soft top that quickly and easily flips back for an enhanced open-air driving experience. Priced at a U.S. MSRP of $895, the Sunrider Flip Top for Hardtop is constructed from ultra-premium black twill fabric common on many high-end luxury convertibles, making it capable of protecting against inclement weather. The new ready-to-install top comes with mounting rails and hardware included being easily installed in place of the hardtop Freedom panels. Ready to jump into a new Jeep?
