Wall Street Journal Blogger Not Impressed with Black Ops Wrangler

|Jonathan Welsh, a blogger for the Wall Street Journal, recently posted his opinion of the Call of Duty: Black Ops Wrangler.|
Jeep presents the Call of Duty Black Ops Wrangler, which is named for the popular video game, as the ultimate version of the Wrangler. It comes with an off-road suspension capable of traversing terrain that would send most SUVs and crossovers looking for alternate routes.
But it also comes with a lot of decals promoting its combat-ready theme. On the flanks is an emblem of a skull wearing a special forces-style beret. I think it’s a bit too much. The Wrangler doesn’t need to tie itself to a video game in order to have street cred. Besides, most of the people I surveyed said the stickers were corny.
It’s also a bit too much money. The Wrangler has always represented a lot of “cool” for the money, but my Black Ops test truck has a sticker price of $37,175.
