While the Jeep JK Wrangler that was being shown at the Shell display was pretty ordinary by comparison to so many of the other Jeeps present at the 2016 SEMA show, it did have a host of Mopar accessories including their 10th anniversary bumpers and highline fenders.

I love builds that make me think "Wow, it could have come from the factory like that."

Still like those Mopar Beadlocks. Wish I could find them.

Are those 35 or 37" tires?

Damn, I was hoping we had a scoop there.

I totally understand the mixup though. If I were at SEMA my head would be spinning from all the Jeep porn.
Thanks again for the cool coverage.:thumb:

It looks much better that the unibrow or Darth Vader Jeeps. Those wheels are nice.

This might be my favorite one you've shared thus far. Any more information on the build or any idea where I can find the build info? After some searching I found a Q&A on another Jeep forum but this is all that was said...

"Can you provide details on the build? Suspension, tires? Axle reinforcements?"

"Axels and housing were not reinforced for filming of JOYRIDE Baja. The Jeepís tires were upgraded to 37Ē and gear ratios were modified to match the tire diameter. The front and rear suspensions were upgraded to coil over shocks to remote nitrogen canisters."

Only problem with those wheels are the ring bolts are exposed. That is saw and what I was reading on them is that if it is run in the normal tie position then there is a gap between the ring and the tire.

Is it just me or do those highline fenders look great from the side and goofy as hell from the front? It looks like the emoji guy doing a shoulder shrug. :idontknow:

This exact jeep (not THE same one) was at the Jamboree last month in Ozark AR. My kids affectionately referred to it as banana. There were two of them there. Pennzoil must have built a fleet of them this year; the two at the Jamboree were being driven by employees of two different dealerships in the Midwest that won some contest. The one that followed me on the hardest trails (red group) sustained about $10,000 in damage by some guys who had no idea what they were doing.

On closer inspection of the Missouri license plate, that is the 2nd jeep that was in the Jamboree with us. Very cool. Didn't realize I was wheeling with a SEMA vehicle!

Actually a very nice looking JK! I do agree, the flares look goofy as hell from the front.

Hi Eddie,
Is that tire carrier/rear gate reinforcement a Mopar thing or is it the usual design......

highline rear fender still does not line up with rear bumper very nicely. I think mopar can do better

My wife was part of the build for this. They built two of them. One was for the commercial w/Rhys Millen and the other was for events. Think the one at SEMA was the actual Joyride one, but I'd have to ask her.

It actually kind of looks like Teraflex's HD hinge. I saw a jeep with it at my local dealer a few weeks ago.
