2019 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Modification
As the “claw” of the small-displacement turbocharger gradually extended to the large-displacement off-road vehicle, the Wrangler has also entered the JL era of 2.0T. While sighing about the large displacement self-priming and declining, more robust data parameters and more favorable fuel consumption have also made all Jeep wrangler rubicon owners envious. Coupled with the new and more refined interior and more comfortable riding experience, it will inevitably make the predecessors look a bit old.
Despite this, JK is still the Wrangler in his bones. As the domestic 3.6L self-priming swan model, Rubicon’s benchmark still stands there.
Will the Jeep wrangler become “old”? We will look for the answer in the Jeep wrangler rubicon modification case introduced in this issue.
The enduring front face of the Wrangler is a palette for expressing individuality. The black body is matched with the “angry” shape of the middle net; the round headlights with tight frowns, like a pair of eyes squinting in the night, a sense of “evil” emerges spontaneously.
The simple front bumper is very close to the original car style but provides a more significant approach angle, better protection, and more functions. The hollow and detachable wrap angle not only brings visual impact but also has the most robust passing ability when climbing extremes.
Auxiliary lights are reserved above the front bar. Two MR 16 round spotlights are installed to provide additional lighting at night.
In the middle of the spotlight is the eye-catching winch control box, and the WABOR TABOR 12,000-pound winch is placed under it as the fifth driving force. Most Wrangler front bumpers can accommodate the installation space of the winch control box, so it is more convenient to open the cover when connecting the remote control.
The winch and the control box are exposed for a long time, and the dust and waterproof performance of the mechanical parts and electrical components are incredibly high. The WARN series of winches have done their best at this point and can fully resist various evil environments; Additional fixing and protection are carried out to further prevent the intrusion and corrosion of sediment and rainwater.
To achieve the blackening effect of the entire vehicle, the wheels are no exception. A set of matte black XD 231 anti-coiling wheels, low-key but fierce, with hundreds of Luchi KO2 all-terrain tires, calmer when dealing with road conditions that require low tire pressure, such as rock climbing and desert. The tire size of 285/70/R17 is slightly conservative for Wrangler, but it can also cope with most road conditions, and can also bring better dynamic response than large size tires.
Like the Wrangler, the off-road vehicle with a front and rear hard bridge structure have a strong passability. However, when it quickly passes through rough roads, the overall bumpy axle is difficult to ensure that the wheels are always on the ground, resulting in handling and comfort. Therefore, the optimization of the suspension system is essential in the later modification. The shock absorber has the appropriate compression and rebounds damping tuning, which can improve this natural defect to a certain extent.
The elevated part adopts a set of customized K-man nitrogen shock absorber, which provides a 9-stage compression damping adjustment function. As the top shock absorber brand in China, K-MAN is highly praised for its excellent performance, exquisite workmanship, and reliable quality, and it has a higher cost performance in customized products.
The rear part is also simple, with a factory-style rear bumper and a sturdy rear-mounted spare tire. It is still the classic look under the shape of the Wrangler Founder.
After replacing larger and heavier spare tires, the pressure on the original tailgate hinges also rises, and long-term bumps are prone to abnormal noise. Installing MR’s reinforced spare tire bracket can solve this problem, and can support up to 37 inches of spare tires.
Besides, the reinforced spare tire frame also provides some convenient small functions, such as the integration of the flagpole seat beside the spare tire, which is convenient for fixing the flagpole when driving in the desert, and the flagpole seat can also be removed and replaced with a monkey climbing pole or shovel—bracket, which is convenient to take without taking up extra space.
The auxiliary light is also reserved at the upper end of the spare tire frame. Small spotlights, fog lights or driving lights can be installed to expand the lighting range behind the vehicle or improve the warning effect.
It’s not difficult to find that this is a Wrangler JK that pays more attention to balance. There is no aggressive front bumper, no exaggerated big wheels, and no hardcore double reduction system. However, this does not prevent it from becoming a classic, because reasonable modifications are always Play a practical value.
Even if every modification is familiar, it is hard to be the same on the Wrangler. Huge modification space creates personality, but is it personality or non-mainstream? Is it classic or cliché? We still need our consideration and consideration.
