Ready to rock 'n' off-road


The dune-colored Jeep Wrangler Sand Trooper is one of 24 customized vehicles Chrysler Group LLC is sending to the Specialty Equipment Market Association Show in Las Vegas later this month. Each of the vehicles is outfitted with performance parts and accessories out of the Mopar portfolio. In the Wrangler's case, it gets the 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 conversion kit that was unveiled earlier this year. Special off-road axles give it more ground clearance, and Mopar also added rock rails and half doors. The show runs Oct. 30 to Nov. 2.
