More Off-road Capability with the New Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Recon

Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Recon

If you thought the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 4×4 is an off-road beast, the new Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Recon will give it a little competition. Jeep took one of their most off-road capable Wrangler trims, the Wrangler Rubicon, and upgraded a few exterior parts to make it stronger in all off-road situations.

Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Recon 4×4

The front axle of the Wrangler Rubicon is an important component to the vehicle’s off-road capabilities and the front axle was focused on for the Wrangler Rubicon Recon’s upgrades. In addition to the standard electronic-locking front and rear Dana 44 axles that have a 4.10 front and rear axle ratio, Jeep has further enhanced the front axle with has strengthened tubes and heavy-duty end forgings.  

Other upgrades include heavy-duty cast front and rear differentials covers and improved rock rails. The new rock rails are shortened, making it possible for drivers to easily switch out the Wrangler Rubicon Recon’s standard 32-inch BF Goodrich KM off-road tires with 35-inch tires.

Jeep Wrangler’S Ground Clearance and Angles

Differences in ground clearance and angles

If you are an off-roader with a Jeep, or plan on getting a Jeep Wrangler to go off-roading, it is important to know your vehicle’s ground clearance and angles. If you don’t know your vehicle’s ground clearance or its different angles, you could easily get stuck or severely damage your vehicle while off-roading.

Running Ground Clearance

Running ground clearance is a huge aspect of off-roading especially when rock crawling. This term is also referred to as just “ground clearance” and “ride height.” Basically, running ground clearance is the distance between the undercarriage of the Jeep and the ground. Your vehicle’s ground clearance is important to know when off-roading because you will be able to estimate how big an obstacle is and if your vehicle will be able to clear it without getting stuck or damaged.
