Jeep's New King of the Trail

Order yours today from Marburger CDJR!



At the 2021 Chicago Auto Show, on July 14, the world is going to get a glimpse of the new King of the Trail: the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon with the Xtreme Recon package. This package can be ordered on both the Wrangler Rubicon 4-door and Wrangler Rubicon 392 models and both will be outfitted with 35-inch tires. Production starts at the Stellantis Toledo Assembly Plant on August, 2021. This is exciting stuff and here's what the company has to say:

"For the first time ever, the new Jeep Wrangler Xtreme Recon Package delivers 35-inch tires straight from the factory," said Jim Morrison, Vice President, Jeep Brand North America. "We have been listening to and watching our customers make this one of the most popular modifications to their Wranglers, and now we will deliver this exciting new package, along with an industry-first 100:1 crawl ratio, off the showroom floor at our Jeep dealerships."

Why are large tires so important?

First, let's talk about the major suspension angles. There are three major angles off-roaders need to know; they are approach angle, departure angle, and breakover angle. The first two are similar: the approach angle is the maximum angle of a ramp onto which a vehicle can crawl up from a horizontal stance. The departure angle is the maximum angle a vehicle can descend from the horizontal.

The breakover angle is a bit less obvious. This term refers to the maximum angle between the bottom of the tires and the mid-point of the vehicle's undercarriage. This relates to how well a vehicle can drive over an obstacle without the four tires coming off the ground.

So, why are the 35-inchers on the Wrangler Xtreme Recon such a big deal? Because large tires raise the vehicle height which improves approach angle, departure angle, and breakover angle.

At 47.4 degrees  (Approach),  40.4 degrees (Departure), 26.7 degrees (Breakover) the angles that the Xtreme Recon offers are the best in the industry.

What else is in the Xtreme Recon package?

The Jeep Wrangler Xtreme Recon Package includes lots of goodies but the major ones are:

35-inch BF Goodrich all-terrain tires
17-inch by 8-inch beadlock capable rims
4.56:1 axle ratio standard (4.88:1 optional)
1.5-inch factory suspension lift with specially tuned shocks
