    Jeep Announces Xtreme Recon Package For Wrangler

    Meet the newest Jeep Wrangler to join the lineup- the new 2021 Jeep Wrangler Xtreme Recon, a package that ups the Wrangler's off-roading game.  Jeep says it's designed to give Wrangler customers want they want - and that includes 35-inch straight from the factory wheels.  Later this year, it will become available with an industry-first 100:1 crawl ratio as well. 

    “For the first time ever, the new Jeep Wrangler Xtreme Recon Package delivers 35-inch tires straight from the factory,” said Jim Morrison, Vice President, Jeep Brand North America. “We have been listening to and watching our customers make this one of the most popular modifications to their Wranglers, and now we will deliver this exciting new package, along with an industry-first 100:1 crawl ratio, off the showroom floor at our Jeep dealerships.”

    A new 4.88:1 axle ratio will be available on the Wrangler Rubicon. When paired with the six-speed manual transmission,  Jeep says 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 in 2021

    Order books are now open. Production at the Toledo (Ohio) Assembly Plant starts in August.
