Diesel Wrangler Unlimited at SEMA
Date 2006/10/30 9:08:50 | Topic: Wrangler
As expected, a diesel Wrangler Unlimited has shown up at SEMA as a custom vehicle. Built by Jeep Truck Engineering-Design Aid Build Shops (is that all one place, or is it "Jeep Truck Engineering" along with various "Design Aid Build Shops"? We aren't sure). The vehicle has a 3.0L Common Rail Diesel that provides 230 horsepower and 390 lbs-ft. of torque at 2,800 rpm. Chrysler Group's media-only blog posted these photos and this description:
Takes the already off-road benchmark Jeep Wrangler to a whole new level. Built by a team of dedicated Jeep enthusiasts, this Wrangler represents the best of the best of what Jeep has to offer.
The interior features custom Katzkin leather seating with GPS navigation and satellite radio.
Plenty of power and traction with the new 3.0L CRD diesel under the hood and the incredible Tru-Lok-equipped Dana 44 axles underneath. Performance suspension lift allows clearance for 35-inch BFG Mud Terrain tires mounted on Custom 18-inch aluminum wheels supplied by Taneisya.
The exterior features a Warn 9.5ti winch mounted on American Expedition Vehicles new front bumper. A full-size spare is carried by our new Mopar performance rear bumper. And it looks like a billion bucks – sprayed in a rich Rolex Silver paint.
