The 2016 Wranglers have started hitting dealers and I was lucky enough to catch a pair of Black Bears today. The Black Bear features a topographical map of Colorado’s Black Bear trail as well as “Wrangler” side hood decals. Rubicon rock rails, tail light guards and a flat black grille are standard on the newest special edition Wrangler. I still think the Willy’s is a better package overall, but the Black Bear’s map and optional color match top are pretty cool. Continue reading

I promise this will be the last Crush Orange Wrangler post – I just love this orange so much and know that a lot of you are having a hard time finding them. As with all of the pictures I’ve taken, the color seems a little lighter than it actually is. The grille shot with the Crush parked next to the Dozer shows a good comparison of the two. enjoy!
