Jeep Wrangler Sand Trooper by Mopar

mopar-jeep-wrangler-jk-sand-trooperMopar is at it once again. This time they’re building a 2013 Jeep Wrangler and calling it the “Sand Trooper”. Slated to be unveiled at SEMA, the final product will vary from the concept sketch (at right).

Apparently the show model will be a four door without the soft top. It will also feature Bushwacker Flat Style Fender Flares that will cover massive 42″ tires! (kinda look like Baja Claws to me) We’re ecstatic that Mopar is using our Flares for their SEMA project, and can’t wait to see it in person!

As expected, Mopar is pulling the stops on the Sand Trooper. Built for extreme use, this 2013 Wrangler is getting the full treatment which includes a lift with Fox Shox, low gears, beadlocks (my guess is Walker Evans wheels), LED lights, bumpers, skids, rails, and a WARN winch. The cherry on the cake is the beautiful 375hp 5.7L Hemi under the hood.

The paint scheme will be a “dune” matte color with matte black accents on the wheels, grill, bumpers, and more. It’ll be interesting to see if they do the same matte accents on our Flat Style Fender Flares. The Sand Trooper sounds like a very promising build; it may even surpass the Mopar Apache which was unveiled at the Easter Jeep Safari earlier this year.

Be sure to follow us on Twitter and Facebook because we’ll post extensive shots of this build live from SEMA 2012!
