Jeep Wrangler Willys Wheeler Edition
Jeep will be bringing a new model to market in 2014, intended to recall the early days of the Willys-Overland vehicles from the 1940s. Named the Jeep Wrangler Willys Wheeler Edition, it is built atop the Wrangler Sport model, as Mike Manley, President and CEO of Jeep Brand states, “The new Jeep Wrangler Willys Wheeler Edition is a Jeep purist’s dream, delivering a Jeep vehicle that harkens back to the original, classic CJs of the 1940s.”
Among the changes to the Wrangler Sport, the Willys Wheeler Edition features upgraded hardware like a Dana 44 rear axle with Trac-Lok® limited-slip rear differential and 3.73 gears, BF Goodrich KM Mud Terrain LT255/75R17 tires, rock rails, and a new Jeep Trail Rated Kit that includes a D-Ring, tow strap and gloves in a Jeep-branded bag. On the exterior, the vehicle comes with a gloss black grille with black Jeep badge, gloss black front and rear bumper appliques, historic satin black “4 Wheel Drive” rear tailgate decal and “Willys” hood decals and unique high-gloss black 17-inch aluminum wheels.
