Accessories That Add Color to the Trail

A number of Jeep® and Mopar® Brand concept vehicles were unveiled at the 52nd Annual Moab Easter Jeep Safari. Among them was the Nacho Jeep Wrangler. This model serves as a rolling catalog, loaded with selections from the Mopar Brand’s Jeep Performance Parts (JPP) menu and concepts, and offers a blueprint that offroaders can follow as they create their own custom vehicle.


This 2018 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon concept vehicle truly stands out, thanks in part to the distinctive Nacho yellow color. Jeep Performance Parts include a brawny hood that is accented with the standard black hood graphic featuring the all-new JPP badge. The hood is engineered to accommodate a cold air intake that feeds the 2.0-liter turbocharged I-4 engine.


Superior trail visibility is delivered through a series of LED lights from the Automotive Lighting Division of Magneti Marelli Offered by Mopar. A rear off-road scouting light uses four-color LEDs to communicate trail conditions: stop (red), 1-3 miles per hour (amber), 3-35 mph (green) and a rear flood light (white).


The spare tire tailgate hinge reinforcement provides a rock-solid foundation for a spare tire carrier that mounts to the tailgate and provides the strength to handle 37-inch tires. A JPP fuel door in black finish completes the exterior.


The beadlock trim rings are finished in high-gloss black and secured with cadmium-plated bolts. Other Jeep Performance Parts includ rock rails that are thicker and wider to protect the exterior. It includes a coating similar to that used on Ram truck bedliners, 2-inch-round tube doors, and grab handles embossed with the iconic Jeep grille logo to assist in vehicle entry.


Off-road performance is achieved without sacrificing premium interior appointments. Black Katzkin® leather seats are dressed up with the Jeep grille logo embroidered in light tungsten stitching on seatbacks, and light tungsten accent stitching on the seat bolsters.


When it comes to satisfying a hunger for something different, the Nacho Jeep Wrangler delivers big time.
