The Jeep was originally built for military use and gained a reputation on the battlefields of World War II. After the war was over the civilian CJ was made available to the public. So to pay tribute to the old time beauty Jeep has created a limited 2014 Jeep Wrangler Willys Wheeler Edition that will debut at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show.
The 2014 Jeep Wrangler Willys Wheeler Edition is inspired by early Willys CJ (Civilian Jeep) models with exclusive styling and upgraded off-road goodies. Starting with a Wrangler Sport, these upgrades include a Dana 44 rear axle with limited-slip differential and 3.73 gears, along with meaty BF Goodrich KM Mud Terrain tires mounted to the Willys Wheeler’s black 17-inch wheels. For more of a classic Jeep look, this model adds a gloss black grille, “Willys” hood stickers and rock rails to protect the side sills. Jeep is also tossing in a D-ring, tow strap and gloves that are all kept in a special carrying bag.
When it goes on sale early next year, the two-door Willys Wheeler Edition will start at $26,790 and the Unlimited four-door models at $30,590. That pricing reflects a premium of $3400 for either version, but there is quite a bit that comes with the package.

Everybody loves a Jeep cause it can go literally anywhere with you off the beaten path. Offroading and Jeeps were a match made in heaven. So when we were just doing our rounds around the web to see the latest Jeep stories we came across a ad that would make any Jeep owner proud. So let us humor you:
First is the screening test to see if your qualified enough:
if you do not own a toolbox, have never changed your own oil, and are scared of firearms: THIS VEHICLE IS NOT FOR YOU.
If you have been posting on facebook all about how excited you are for pumpkin latte season: THIS VEHICLE IS NOT FOR YOU.
If you get offended easy and often, whine to your co-workers, and bitch a lot: THIS VEHICLE IS NOT FOR YOU.
If you feel you are owed anything in the world & have a bull-ish job where you fail to produce: THIS VEHICLE IS NOT FOR YOU.
If you own a bieber album, white oakleys, affliction t-shirts, or those candy-butt stitched-pocket jeans: THIS VEHICLE IS NOT FOR YOU.
If you consider the 2nd Amendment an anachronistic relic and have never owned a firearm: THIS VEHICLE IS NOT FOR YOU.
Than if you pass this why you should buy it:
If, however, you have BALLS OF STEEL and consider adverse weather an excuse to do stupid shit: THIS IS YOUR JEEP.
Do you laugh at danger, and tempt fate?
Have you ever uttered the words, “Hold my beer and watch this …”?
While bored at work do you pick targets at random and think, “I could hit that from here with the .22 …”?
Have any of your friends quit hanging out because you were too much fun?
Do you have the number of a friend with cash memorized for bail?
When you pass an abandoned flatbed farm truck along a fenceline do you consider taking on another project?
Is your ol’ lady really sick of the random piles of parts, greasy footprints, and empty beer bottles in the garage? Could you not care less?
Do you have Jalopnik saved on your laptop AND smartphone?
Do you own a service manual for every vehicle you ever owned?
Do you still miss your first ride?
Can you carry on a two hour conversation discussing tools, scars, and hi-lift jacks?
Remember when tool companies had the balls to put half-naked beauty queens on their calendars?
Do you consider the Prius an abominable affront to the Gods of displacement, torque, and All Mighty Internal Combustion?
Having a large dog can be fun for chasing neighbors away you don’t like but when if comes for going on rides it can be a bit difficult to keep them safe and secure in one spot. The new 2014 Jeep Cherokee found a solution to that along with their Cargo Management System available they also added a folding pet enclosure to keep your your pet safe.
The tentlike enclosure clips into the floor of the Cherokee’s cargo area. The soft-sided pet compartment can be folded flat when not in use, and it comes with a carrying handle. Expanded to its full size, the enclosure takes up most of the cargo area of a Cherokee with the rear seats up. There’s plenty of room for a large dog, and the driver doesn’t have to worry about it jumping over the seats into the passenger compartment while the vehicle is in motion.
The pet carrier will be available this year as an accessory through the Mopar catalog, which carries a number of model-specific goodies, like first-aid kits, performance upgrades and even a tent that connects to a vehicle’s open tailgate.

The best television show Breaking Bad is coming to an end later this week and of course things must go from the show. Entertainment industry site Screenbid.com is starting to auction off various items that can be seen on the show ranging from phones to clothing but one thing that catches our eyes is the Jeep Grand Wagoneer. This Jeep belonged to Skylar White on the show and can be seen in various episodes sitting in the drive way of their home.
The Grand Wagoneer runs and drives, but leaks oil and has some paint bubbling and chipping. It’s also powered by a solid 5.9-liter 360 c.i. AMC V8 that puts out a whopping 144 horsepower and 280 pound feet of torque. The bid is starting out at $7,125 which is pretty steep for what they are really going for these days.
This crimson red ’91 Jeep Grand Wagoneer is going to be auctioned off along with many other vehicles from the show, including Jesse Pinkman’s 4WD Toyota Tercel Wagon, Walter White’s dilapidated Pontiac Aztek, the 6.9-liter IDI Ford F250 Vamonos Pest Control truck and even Jesse’s flashy Chevy Monte Carlo lowrider complete with non-functional hydraulics, gold fist in the rear window and fuzzy dice.

Last year at the Beijing Auto Show the Dragon concept was introduced for the Jeep Wrangler and the response was so good that it will be available as a limited edition model in the U.S.
The special edition Jeep is a major nod to the Chinese culture. Chrysler said that the dragon symbolizes strength and power and is an “aspirational character normally associated with royalty.” Historians say that Chinese dragons are seen as benevolent creatures, not the monsters usually associated with Western fairy tales.
This is the most expensive model in the 2014 Wrangler line up starting at $37,090. The Wrangler is only available in black . The design includes a Dark Charcoal dragon decal that snakes along the hood and driver’s side of the vehicle. Other touches include a black spare tire cover with a dragon decal, 18-inch five-spoke alloy wheels and Bronze Satin Gloss exterior trim.
The cabin gets a black-and-bronze theme with Satin Bronze dragon scales on parts of the interior, including the outer seat bolsters, center console armrest and steering wheel.
The 2014 Wrangler is equipped with the 285-horsepower 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine.
