Jeep Wrangler Copper Crawler is our idea of a restrained Mopar shopping spreeThu, 07 Nov 2013 16:05:00 EST
According to a recent report, the Jeep Wrangler is the most popular SUV for customization, and this is backed up by the fact that the iconic off-roader was just named the Hottest 4x4-SUV at SEMA for the fourth year in a row. Looking for ways to keep its customers in-house rather than going aftermarket, Jeep and Mopar are always teaming to offer exciting new parts and pieces for the JK Wrangler.
Compared to most other Wranglers on display at SEMA – as well as other Chrysler Mopar SEMA concepts – the Jeep Wrangler Copper Crawler is surprisingly reserved, but should be no less exciting for owners to give their Wrangler a distinctive look. Starting off with an eye-catching copper paint scheme, the Jeep then goes on a Mopar catalog shopping spree with its matte black grille, black beadlock wheels, two-inch lift, Rubicon bumper (with a winch and aero end caps up front) and rocker panel and taillight guards.
Jeep also upgraded the Wrangler's transfer case for low-speed rock crawling (hence the vehicle's name) and cold-air intake for extra measure.

The Jeep Wrangler - the most capable vehicle in the world - becomes even more versatile when combined with a healthy selection of Mopar parts and accessories. The Jeep Wrangler Copper Crawler, based off the two-door 2014 Jeep Wrangler, is geared up and ready to attack the trail on the outside, the inside and underhood.
The exterior is armed with a Mopar front bumper and rear bumper, lightweight Mopar rock rails, and lightweight 17-inch wheels with forged beadlocks and beauty rings. The copper color is contrasted with a Mopar black grille, Mopar Rubicon front and rear bumpers with aero end caps, black hood decal, black two-door hardtop, black tail lamp guard, and black fuel-filler door with a locking gas cap. Other Mopar items include a trailer hitch receiver with tow wiring kit, 9.5ti winch and synthetic winch line and Mopar rock rails including Rub Rail. The 17 x 8-inch forged, lightweight beadlock-capable wheels, with color-keyed copper rings, ride on mud terrain T/A KM35? tires and tire carrier.
The interior receives premium customization with Tuscany Katzkin leather seats, and all-weather slush mats, grab handles and black door-sill guards further enhance the inside. To be successful in off-road battle, the Jeep Wrangler Copper Crawler is modified with a 2-inch lift kit, Mopar 4:1 rock-trac transfer case and a Mopar cold-air intake.
