Are you a Jeep Wrangler buyer that loves to customize your Wrangler with accessories, but you want to avoid the long build times associated with buying all the parts you need individually? If this sounds like you, Jeep and Mopar have the perfect solution for you the JPP20 Wrangler.
Available only for the 2020 model year, the JPP is your one and only ticket to getting a fully customized Wrangler with minimal fuss and without the trouble of building it yourself. Dubbed the JPP20 “Jeep Performance Parts” the model is a visual example of what the recently minted Jeep Performance parts lineup of accessories is trying to achieve with the Wrangler. The JPP20 comes equipped with many of the latest accessories that Mopar has to offer. Mopar boss Mark Bosanac got down to the point in explaining the JPP20’s purpose in the lineup with the exec releasing a brief statement in FCA’s accompanying press release.
“The new limited-edition Jeep Wrangler JPP 20 is a ‘check-all-the boxes’ off-road vehicle for enthusiasts. We loaded the Jeep brand’s iconic rock crawler with factory-backed and quality-tested, authentic Jeep Performance Parts specifically designed and engineered to tackle the toughest conditions.”
Jeep makes ordering a JPP20 a very simple procedure with buyers first choosing an engine and a color. Buyers can choose from all three of the Wrangler’s engine options (3.6 liter Pentastar V6, 2.0 liter turbocharged four cylinder, or the optional 3.0 liter EcoDiesel V6.) However, they are limited to only two colors, the Ocean Blue that adorned the model Jeep had on display on the show floor, or flat white. Once you’ve done that you can sit back and watch with amazement as Mopar literally throws everything but the kitchen sink at the Wrangler to make it special. The list seems to be enfless, with Mopar customizers adding goodies such as steel tube doors, a mirror relocation kit, a custom front bumper, a waterproof winch, an accessory front skid plate, rock rails, a swing gate reinforcement kit, and a relocated center high mounted stop lamp which moves to the spare tire holder to help ease the mounting of larger tires. Factory aluminum doors are also included for times where you need to drive the JPP in rainy or other inclement weather.
But we are not quite done yet, with Mopar designers also adding several other items to this loaded pie. They include a hood mounted American flag graphic, blacked out fender vents, blacked out fuel door, JPP graphics on the passenger side quarter panel, and a laser etched aluminum JPP badge on the driver side of the swing gate. With the sheer level of accesories that are on hand here, the JPP has a distinctive look, and is a great way for Jeep fanatics to retain the high levels of style and poise that they expect out of their Jeep purchase.
Meanwhile, the interior also benefits from its fair share of updates with custom Katzkin leather seats with JPP embrodiery, Mopar all-weather floormats, and a rear mounted cargo organizer to help keep items secure and safe. Like a few of Mopar’s other models, the JPP also comes with a trunk kit of sorts, but its tuned more towards choosing your own adventure versus being a place full of computers and spare seats. Owners can equip the rig with a JPP exclusive 2.0 inch suspension lift, a 5.0 inch and 7.0 inch LED lighting kit with mounting brackets, or one of five JPP exclusive wheel designs with four diffrent tire choices. Best of all, owners can take comfort knowing that all the parts on the JPP are designed to perfectly fit, and also resist high amounts of corrosion which is key for long term ownership.
Dealers can begin taking orders for the JPP during the second quarter of the year. Pricing wasn’t released, but look for that setup to largely follow what we have seen with other Mopar models, with the cost of the donor Wrangler being combined with the customization suite. Whatever the figure is in the end, expect it to be a healthy premium over a mainstream Wrangler.
