Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Turns 10, Throws a Party in Los Angeles

Previewed prior to its debut at the 2012 LA Auto Show, the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 10th Anniversary Edition looked off-road ready under the Los Angeles lights.

Available as either a two-door Wrangler or four-door Wrangler Unlimited model, the American automaker decks the Rubicon special edition model with plenty of off-road features. Upgrades include all-new steel winch-capable bumpers with removable end caps, more ground clearance, new rock rails, and BF Goodrich KM2 off-road tires. In addition, enthusiasts can opt for the flashy ‘Anniversary Red’ leather interior.
