The Jeep brand is once again teaming up with Activision to promote "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3", the latest installment of the hit video game. From the official press release:
The 2012 Jeep Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited Call of Duty: MW3 Special Edition is based on the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon model and features Rubicon wheels finished in semi-gloss black.

The vehicle also features a unique "power-dome" hood, along with such Mopar® accessories as a winch-ready front bumper, rear bumper, rock rails, taillamp guards and a fuel-filler door. Inspired by the most recent version of Activision's popular "Call of Duty" games, the new limited-edition Wrangler delivers legendary Jeep capability, aggressive 32-inch off-road tires, live axles with locking differentials in the front and rear, and a two-speed transfer case.
Available dealer-installed Mopar performance parts include a Warn winch, 2-inch lift kit and classic five-spoke wheels. Interior appointments include model-specific black seats with accent stitching and Call of Duty logos, unique gauge cluster graphics, dashboard serialized plaque, dashboard grab handle with logo, accent stitching on arm rest, console lid, and steering wheel, Mopar Slush Mats with logo, and rear cargo mat with logo (Unlimited only).
Available in Jeep showrooms next month, the new limited edition Jeep Wrangler will be available at a U.S. manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) of $36,495 for the two-door model and $40,070 for the four-door (Jeep Wrangler Unlimited) model, not including destination.

Re: Wrangler: Call of Duty, Modern Warfare 3 Edition
For those --like me-- interested in black wheels, I obtained the MOPAR P/Ns for the semi-gloss black-painted 5-spoke Rubicon wheels available on the Arctic (which look like the same wheels as on the Call of Duty MW3 Edition --at least, in some photos). In other photos (SEMA) the MW3 is shown with 5-round-hole AEV black Savegres.
The center caps are ~$10. I don't have the wheel price (can't even get a hit on the wheel P/N with Google or MOPAR search engines) but at least this is a start. I've found that some JEEP dealer parts depts are willing to order parts for 10% over their cost... so shop wisely.
Part number for 17” Black Aluminum Arctic wheel is 1SU90RXFAB. Black center cap is 5HT59RXFAC.
I wish JEEP would simply make these black wheels a factory option. The silver sparkle is getting a little long in the tooth...
