2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon Hard Rock on 2040-cars
Shalimar, Florida, United States
This is one of the nicest Jeeps on the road! I custom ordered this Jeep and it is number 232 to roll off the
production line in 2016. I was planning on keeping this Jeep forever, but our business is expanding and priorities
dictate a sale. There are a ton of upgrades and every upgrade has a functional use that nearly every Jeeper can
appreciate – no angry bird headlight covers here :) And there are only two mechanical upgrades: a K&N cold air
intake and a Magnaflow cat-back exhaust. No worries about a DIY installed lift. Want a lift? This Jeep has
everything else. Don’t want or need a lift? This Jeep still fits in the garage. I started this build by custom
ordering a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon Hard Rock the way this Jeep was meant to be built: 4.10 gears, a
six-speed manual transmission, and premium Sunrider soft-top. From there, I added all the upgrades listed below.
Nonsmoker. This Jeep has never been off-road and is in absolutely mint condition inside and out. Runs and drives
perfectly and is still covered by Jeep warranty. If you are looking for a top-of-the-line Jeep with all the bells
and whistles, this is it.
Gobi roof rack with all the available options and add-ons (quick release, dual rear ladders, 4 ratcheting tie
downs, removeable crossbars, and removeable front sunroof insert. The only rack that allows you to quickly tilt it
back to open and close the soft-top. I have the brackets to install a hi-lift jack as well and a kit for touch-ups
if you ever need it)
JW Speaker LED headlights, taillights, fog lights, turn signals (much brighter than stock)
K&N cold air intake (better MPG, HP, and sound)
Magnaflow cat-back exhaust (better MPG, HP, and sound)
Viper alarm with two-way 1-mile range remote and unlimited distance with phone app that includes ability to GPS
track vehicle, Bluetooth, and proximity sensors (proximity sensors can be turned on or off, when on, will alert you
if someone reaches inside the Jeep)
Warn Zeon 12-s winch with wireless control (best winch money can buy and fits beautifully in Rubicon Hard Rock
Maximus-3 stinger hoop (I had the idea that with a synthetic winch and this stinger hoop, I could winch my
heavy PA14 kayak up on the Gobi roof rack – ended up buying a trailer for our kayaks while waiting the 5 months
for my Gobi rack so I never tried, but the concept should work as the synthetic winch cable can wrap around the
hoop and over the rack without ever contacting the Jeep)
Cowl Covers (prevents the cowls from being damaged if the door swings all the way open with the door straps
Tuffy Driver lock box
Tuffy Passenger lock box
Tuffy Security Deck Enclosure (keeps trunk area locked even with top off and top opens or removes easily with
A-pillar mounted grab handles
Sunglass (or anything else) holders for each window seat
Roll-bar flashlight holder
Mopar door sill guards (prevents scratches when entering/exiting Jeep)
Molle Tailgate Storage (comes with two bags that hold a lot of gear)
Grill insert (protects radiator and looks much better)
Jeep 3rd brake light cover (ok, so this wasn’t a functional upgrade, but adds to the look)
Alien sunshade (great in the hot summer sun - not currently installed)
Off-road 13-inch antenna (functions great and looks much better than stock)
Jeep Jammock (hammock designed for Wranglers that mounts to roll bars - my daughter used once to watch
fireworks – fun)
Rear Mopar cargo liner with subwoofer cutout (rubber protects great and cleans with hose)
Soft-top care kit + zipper cleaner and lubricant
Trail anchor rails (really useful for strapping/bungying anything in the rear cargo area)
Windshield custom-fit reversible sunshade (blocks sun and reverse to help heat in winter)
Rugged Ridge black textured hood latches (no more hood shake on highway)
Rugged Ridge hood scoop (never installed)
Removeable mirrors for doors off (not currently installed)
Door hinge side steps (makes it easy to reach roof rack)
Vitamin Blue roof rack pads (great for protecting rack)
New Duralast platinum AGM battery late 2018 (great reserve power for accessories/winch)
Rod holders (I mounted these rod holder on the Gobi rack and they make transporting my 1-piece rods much easier
– they can be easily removed with no damage if you are not a fisherman/don’t have a need)
Dash cell phone mount (retains the storage tray, but adds a very secure cell phone holder to the dash)
WeatherTech in-channel window deflectors (much better than the ones that mount outside the window)
Soft-top window storage bag (keeps the rear windows protected when you remove them to put the soft-top down)
ARB Awning with Awning Room (attaches with Gobi mounts to Gobi rack and creates either a canopy or a tent)
K&N Cabin Air Filter

Jeep is making a big play for the Chinese crossover market at the 2014 Beijing Motor Show. It has a quartet styling concepts for the Renegade, Cherokee and Wrangler that are inspired by Chinese culture at the show.
Among them is the newest member of the Jeep lineup - the Renegade. Its Zi You Xia concept (pictured above) comes from the Mandarin for "rebel," and it's painted in Warm Chocolate Gray with Dark Anodized Bronze trim, including the 20-inch wheels. The roof, grille surround, and mirror caps are done in a complimentary Dark Charcoal color as an accent. The interior is a mix of dark brown leather and Anodized Copper trim. This is one swanky compact crossover.
The Cherokee Sageland and Urbane concepts are meant to show to different sides of Chinese style. With inspiration from the Shangri-La Region, the Sageland has Ivory Pearl tri-coat paint with bronze trim on the outside, and the interior is covered in Gray Nappa leather with red and blue stitching. The Urbane's look comes from the nightlife in the country's cities. The exterior is a color called Maximum Steel with Hyper Black trim. Inside, it combines Piano Black trim with dark red leather seats.
Chrysler has some good news and some bad news. First, profits were up 16 percent over the second quarter of 2012, bringing the Auburn Hills, Michigan-based manufacturer $507 million on the back of strong demand for trucks and SUVs (a recurring theme this quarter, particularly in the US). Q2 revenue was up as well, from $16.8 billion in 2012 to $18 billion in 2013. The bad news is that the Pentastar's overall earnings forecast for net income in 2013 has been trimmed from $2.2 billion to between $1.7 and $2.2 billion, according to Automotive News.
In addition to the adjusted net income forecast, Chrysler tweaked its operating profit from $3.8 billion to between $3.3 and $3.8 billion. This has gone largely unexplained by Chrysler, perhaps hoping the news of a three-percent increase in its transaction prices for Q2 will allow it to sweep this adjustment under the rug.
The star of the show for Chrysler has been its US sales, which saw a 10-percent jump, both bettering the industry average of eight percent and improving over the same stretch of 2012. As with the increase in transaction prices, Chrysler has the new Ram pickup and Jeep Grand Cherokee to thank. Perhaps most worrying from this report, though, is that every brand in the automaker's stable saw an increase in sales... except for the Chrysler brand itself.
Production delays aside, Jeep is steaming towards its September on-sale date for the 2014 Cherokee. The reborn midsizer's configurator has just gone live, meaning you can fiddle with different options, colors and trim levels to your heart's content.
The cheapest model available is the 4X2 Sport, which starts at a reasonable $22,995. On the high end, the Cherokee's builder allowed us to indulge our passion for ludicrously priced vehicles by outfitting the top-end Trailhawk, which already starts at $29,495, with $8,610 in options. The resulting car, which you can see above, would retail for $39,100 after the $995 destination is factored in.
