Jeep just loves dressing up the Wrangler. The carmaker has released one limited-edition model after the other, especially this year as it celebrates its 80th anniversary.

Now, Jeep has revealed yet another off-road setup for the Wrangler: the Xtreme Recon Package. Unlike other special-edition releases, however, this new one isn’t just all about the aesthetics.

Jeep says that with all these tweaks, the Wrangler Rubicon and Rubicon 392 models achieve a best-in-class approach angle (47.4°), breakover angle (26.7°), departure angle (40.4°), ground clearance (328mm), and water wading capacity (853mm).

In addition to all these, the Wrangler Rubicon will also be available with an even higher 4.88:1 axle ratio. Jeep says that with a six-speed manual, this axle ratio delivers another best-in-class 100:1 crawl ratio for increased wheel torque and control off-road. This one can be had later on during the year.
