Default 2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 Will Cost Ram TRX Money



Quote:
The V8-powered Wrangler will sticker for $74,995 when it launches this year; less-expensive models should follow.

How much would you pay for the first V8-powered Wrangler in decades? Jeep hopes your answer is “at least $74,995,” because that’s how much the 2021 Wrangler Rubicon 392 Launch Edition will run, including destination, when it starts arriving in dealerships this year.

On the surface, that’s a huge increase from the previous line-topper, the $50,925 High Altitude. Sure, you get the trusty 6.4-liter V8 parent company Stellantis has been building for nearly a decade now, throwing 470 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque at the pavement, dirt, or whatever else finds itself under the 392’s 33-inch all-terrain tires. Jeep upgraded the frame rails, front upper control arms, and cast iron steering knuckles for 392 duty. It sits 2.0 inches higher than a regular Rubicon, with Dana 44 axles and FOX aluminum monotube shocks at both ends. The trick electronically-decoupling front sway bar is standard, too.

Admittedly, the Launch Edition comes with nearly every option box ticked, going some way to explaining that price. Interested parties will have to cough up $350 for a tow hitch, and $1,300 for the dual-top option. That said, there’s another hi-po Stellantis off-roader that undercuts this new Wrangler: the 702-horsepower Ram TRX. Even the soon-to-retire Grand Cherokee SRT, with the same engine, is $6,000 or so less. Like the TRX however, we expect less-expensive versions of the 392 to become available after the Launch Edition.

The 2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 is set to start trickling into dealerships the first quarter of this year—so a matter of weeks. Start digging through the couch cushions now.

Default 5 Things Jeep Owners Need to Know About WARN Elite Series Bumpers



Quote:
These days, the WARN name has become all but synonymous with vehicle recovery winches. Ask ten knowledgeable off-roaders who makes the best winches money can buy, and chances are good you’ll get “WARN” as your answer at least nine times.

Winches are far from all that WARN offers though, and if you’re a Jeep owner looking for an upgraded off-road bumper for your Wrangler or Gladiator, WARN has made a serious play for your business thanks to its Elite Series. This rugged, durable line of Jeep bumpers is as well-engineered as it is stylish, with the quality and features to make it a real frontrunner in the aftermarket off-road bumper space.

Here are the top five things Jeep owners need to know about the WARN Elite Series.

WARN Elite Series Bumpers are Built for Adventure
Every aftermarket Jeep bumper out there claims to be off-road-ready, but that doesn’t mean they’re all created equal.

WARN Elite Series bumpers for Wrangler and Gladiator are formed from thick-gauge steel that undergoes a five-stage pre-treatment regimen with zirconium nanotechnology before finishing, yielding a bumper that’s not only uncommonly strong, but one that delivers the best finish and corrosion resistance possible. Each bumper is tested with 408 hours of salt spray, showcasing absolutely absurd levels of corrosion resistance, with an attractive textured matte black powdercoat finish to resist abrasion. Factor in the integrated off-road jack lift points and D-ring shackles and you end up with a bumper upgrade that craves the trail almost as much as you do.


Jeep JL WARN Elite Series full Bumper with grille guard

Adventure-Ready Means Winch-Ready
Given everything we mentioned above, it likely goes without saying that the WARN Elite Series bumper is winch-ready, built to withstand an industry-leading 12,000 pounds of pulling force without deforming. That’s equivalent to about two times the JL Wrangler Rubicon’s curb weight, giving you plenty of overhead when it’s time to get your Jeep unstuck out on the trail.

Each bumper is designed to mount the winch low down beneath the grille, minimizing any disruption to the radiator’s cooling airflow, and the Elite Series is specifically cleared for use with WARN winches like the VR EVO, ZEON, and XD9. It will even work with WARN’s brilliant HUB Wireless Receiver system.

The WARN HUB is a true breakthrough in winch control technology, allowing your Bluetooth-enabled smartphone to act as a wireless winch controller through the WARN HUB app. Using Bluetooth means it’s not dependent on a reliable mobile data connection to function, while you’re spared from having to carry (and keep track of) a small, separate wireless winch remote controller. And just because it’s made by WARN doesn’t mean you’re necessarily locked in to using a WARN winch; WARN makes a version of the HUB Wireless Receiver (103955) that’s compatible with certain Smittybilt truck winches.


WARN Wireless HUB

It’s the Perfect Accessory for Your Next Road Trip
Off-road upgrades like a WARN Elite Series bumper make for great road trip accessories, whether you’re driving cross-country in your JL Wrangler, or hitching it to the back of an RV.

The full-width version includes built-in light ports perfect for either OE or aftermarket fog lamps, and the bumper’s D-ring shackles and winch-ready design provide easy vehicle recovery, so you’re ready for whatever the road throws at you. In other words, don’t leave home without it when planning your next off-road adventure.

There’s a WARN Elite Bumper for Every Off-Roader’s Needs
The folks at WARN know that one size very seldom fits all. That’s why there’s a full range of Elite Series Jeep bumpers, including both full-width and “stubby” front bumpers that allow you to run monster tires without the risk of rubbing – although even the full-width bumper can accommodate up to 37” tires.


WARN Elite Series bumper for Jeep JK stubby

For the Jeep Wrangler and Gladiator, both the full-width and stubby front bumpers are available with a tubular steel guard tube, giving you the option of even more front-end protection. No matter which one you choose, your Jeep’s excellent approach and departure angles are preserved with a high-clearance design, and you can rest assured knowing you’re getting a rugged, high-quality off-road bumper with plenty of utility.

There’s a Whole Constellation of Compatible Accessories
Installing a WARN Elite Series bumper on your Jeep Wrangler or Gladiator doesn’t just give you superior off-road protection in a rugged, well-built package, it opens up your ride to a full range of accessories. There’s the obvious – items like WARN’s industry-leading truck winches, with up to 12,000 pounds of pulling power, plus the company’s award-winning HUB Bluetooth wireless receiver. But there’s also the not-so-obvious.


WARN Elite rear bumpers for the JK and JL Wrangler, for instance, are available with the ability to accept a WARN rear tire carrier (sold separately), and the bumpers are compatible with WARN Hi-Lift Jack mounts and RotopaX fuel can mounts—so you can make your ride even more off-road-ready. The full-width Elite Series bumper with its built-in light ports, meanwhile, allows you to install a number of high-performance auxiliary lights, and even the stubby version allows you to mount extra lights above the bumper.

No matter what you’re looking for from your next aftermarket Jeep Wrangler or Gladiator bumper, the WARN Elite Series is built to deliver. For more info, visit WARN.com.

I'm interested to see how many of these they can move as it's a massive amount of money for a Wrangler.

^^ agreed ,stupid money. Thing is there's lot's of Jeep guys sending their Jeeps out to conversion shops doing this 6.2 or 5.7 and even the Hellephant conversion. Average conversion cost is 35K on top of the cost of the Jeep.

I think it's nuts ....and I'm a Jeep guy.

People have been getting pissed at me for making this arguement but... The upcoming Plug-In Hybrid 4xe model makes WAY more sense than this V8.

Has the same torque as the V8 (470ftlbs), costs $25,000 LESS than the V8, gets 50 miles of EV only range, still has the same top speed, has better weight distribution than the V8, and still accelerates faster than the 6 cylinder and Diesel.

Could you image also being able to do something like the Rubicon trail on Electric-Only mode? That would be an interesting challenge.

Well I guess they can get pissed at me too cause I totally agree with you.

Electric only mode off road would be sooooo nice. I'd personally wait a year or two so Jeep can work out the inevitable bugs though......

That's actually a neat feature eSave Mode to preserve the electric battery and run on the gas engine only. Then select E Selec for pure EV whenever you want.

You got me excited enough to go check it out on the website where I found it was only 25 miles of EV only range. I'd still take it over a V8, but 50 would have been nice. It is rated at 50 MPGE, for whatever that is worth.

Guy at my gym has the Ford power diesel or whatever the F it is. Quad cab, long bed, lift kit installed with the matching tires. F’in thing has never towed anything. The receiver is spotless as is the bed. Here in the land of small dik full size truck lift kit brozers, even it stands out. The f’in thing is long man, like it’s too long for a parking space.

This thing will be stupid expensive and they’ll buy it anyway. Can’t believe all the people paying that money for their “truck”. Friend drove it (It’s one of the only trucks I haven’t driven). He said at highway speeds it’s constant corrections. Said it was f’in terrible on the highway.
