The Rubicon-based Wrangler Stitch is a follow-up the Pork Chop concept that’s been stripped down to a 3,000lb curb weight. Inside the a/c, stereo and heating systems have been omitted, the front leather seats come from the SRT Viper and the rear seats have been removed.

A chrome moly unit replaces the roll cage, while offroad gear includes custom DynaTrac Pro Rock 44 axles with 4.88 gears and ARB lockers, King shocks and pneumatic bump stops. The Sand Trooper II builds on the first model that debuted at SEMA 2012.
