Willys Wheeler Wrangler

The Wrangler has had quite the array of special editions throughout its 27 model years.  Jeep has just announced the third special edition Wrangler for the 2014 model year.  The “Willys Wheeler” is the least gimmicky of the trio, and pays homage to The Wrangler’s roots – The Willys Jeep.

Available in both two and four door models – The Willys Wheeler is based on the Sport model and comes standard with Rubicon wheels and tires, a limited slip rear differential, and 3.73 gearing.  Unlike many of the recent special editions; the Willys Wheeler will be available in all standard Wrangler colors.

The Willys adds hood decals as well as a retro 4 Wheel Drive sticker on the tailgate.  Extra add-ons include gloss accents, rock rails, and a new Jeep Trail Rated Kit that includes a D-Ring, tow strap, and gloves in a Jeep-branded bag.
