Modified 2017 Jeep Wrangler Looks Ready for Action
JK Wrangler Unlimited sports a variety of off-road upgrades and an eye-popping interior.
The Jeep Wrangler is a relatively simple vehicle, especially in these times of dual-clutch transmissions, torque-vectoring differentials, and semi-autonomous cars. It’s a two-box, body-on-frame design with four-wheel drive and a lever for controlling the transfer case. No multi-terrain system, no adaptive cruise control. Just grunt and ground clearance. That simplicity also applies to its looks. It’s handsome without help.
However, that doesn’t mean mods ruin the Wrangler’s appearance. For instance, take a look at this 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited that’ll be crossing the auction block in Oklahoma City sometime between February 23rd and 24th. It definitely looks aftermarket, but in an attractive way.
It features custom bumpers at both ends. The front is beefed up with a bull bar and winch. The seemingly stock Pentastar V6 sits under an aggressive, vented hood. LED light bars up front and on top provide extra illumination.
Of course, whoever previously owned this rig didn’t forget about the suspension, wheels, or tires. They lifted it, added an off-road suspension, put in a steering stabilizer, threw on some running boards with assist steps, and installed 20-inch wheels wrapped in aftermarket rubber (35-inch mud tires according to the official description).
There are only two pictures of the interior, which clearly show the cool diamond-stitched red leather seats. They contrast nicely with the all-business, Grey Frost Kevlar exterior. What we can’t see is the navigation system, backup camera, or 3,200 miles on the odometer listed in the vehicle description.
This JKU looks great right now all shiny and new, but we can’t help hoping that’s its next owner gives it a nice outdoor bath as soon as they possibly can. After all, Jeeps look even better with some dirt and mud on them, especially Wranglers.
