The Jeep Performance Parts catalog was emptied on this one.
The 2020 Chicago Auto Show is in full swing, with a number of epic new models on display from various brands. But while the FCA group is relatively quiet - with no truly new models to show the world - it has brought along a slew of Jeep products to showcase the best the brand has to offer. We've already seen High Altitude versions of the Wrangler and Gladiator, and the Gladiator Mojave looks desert-ready, but one that won't be seen at Chicago comes from the halls of the Mopar Custom Shop. Meet the limited-edition Jeep Wrangler JPP 20 - the Mopariest Jeep imaginable.
Based on the four-door Wrangler Unlimited, the Wrangler JPP 20 gets loaded up with everything you can imagine from the Jeep Performance Parts catalog (that's what JPP stands for). Full aluminum doors are standard, but Mopar has added steel tube doors and a Mopar mirror kit, with a mesh sun bonnet for added shade without compromising on the open-air feeling that has popularized the Wrangler for decades. There are additional JPP rock rails too, built from heavy-gauge steel and coated in the same Durabull coating as used to line truck beds for durability.
The front bumper has been swapped out with a JPP steel bumper and skid plate, powder-coated in black with extra towing ability thanks to a set of D-rings. The bumper is equipped with a JPP Rubicon Winch that is completely sealed against the elements and features 100 feet of highly durable synthetic rope. In addition to these standard features, purchasing a JPP 20 entitles the owner to cash in customer credit for either a JPP 2-inch lift kit, JPP off-road LED lights, or one of five JPP off-road wheel sets with tires.
The JPP 20 can be had with either of the three available powertrains from the Wrangler lineup. Differentiating the JPP 20 from regular Wranglers - aside from the aforementioned features - is a choice of two exterior paint colors - Ocean Blue or White - along with bespoke styling features like an American Flag hood graphic, blacked-out fender vents, JPP graphics, and a laser-etched JPP badge on the driver side fender made from forged aluminum.
The cabin has been updated, too, with Katzkin Tuscany leather upholstery with a JPP logo embroidered on the front seats, Mopar all-weather floor mats, a Mopar Cargo Tray Kit, and an advanced reservoir system to keep liquids near the standard floor drains.
Dealers will be accepting orders in the second quarter of 2020, with production limited to 2020 only. Pricing will be announced closer to the official mid-year launch date.
