A 13mm increase in ride height allows the Wrangler’s Goodyear tyres more room to claw at terrain. The rubber wraps around satin black 17-inch Rubicon aluminium wheels with polished faces and red Wrangler ‘icon’ logos on the outside lip.

The dual-intake ‘Power Dome’ bonnet aids engine cooling and gives the car a more menacing front-on appearance, while Mopar rock rails provide extra protection from trail damage. The black fuel filler cover and tail-light guards are also supplied by Mopar.

Red-silhouette Rubicon decals line the sides of the bonnet and 10th Anniversary badges distinguish the front quarter panels.

The three-piece body-colour ‘Freedom’ hardtop and the soft-top are both included in the Wrangler Rubicon 10th Anniversary package, which is available is available in white and Anvil grey (pictured) paint colours.
