2013 Moab Easter Jeep Safari: Wrangler Sand Trooper II makes its debut

Article by Christian A., on March 20, 2013

After the Sand Trooper was introduced back in 2012 at the SEMA Show, Mopar upped the ante with the Sand Trooper II. Set to make its debut at the 2013 Moab Easter Jeep Safari, the Sand Trooper II features the 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine, which delivers 375 horsepower and 400 ft.-lb. of torque. The engine is mated to a five-speed automatic transmission, which sends the power to the Mopar eight-lug front and rear Portal axles for added ground clearance.

As you can see from the photos, the vehicle is equipped with Jeep Performance Parts prototype forged beadlock wheels that carry 40-inch off-road tires. Thanks to these, the Sand Trooper II has a menacing stance.

In terms of design, the Jeep Wrangler Sand Trooper II by features Mopar exterior enhancements such as satin black grille, hood lock, front and rear half-door and window kits, front and rear off-road “Shorty” modified bumpers, Warn winch, Mopar flat fenders, rock rails, a vented hood, LED off-road lights and headlamps, Rubicon 10th Anniversary swing away rear tire carrier, trailer-tow hitch receiver, black taillamp guards and locking fuel door, and a Jeep Performance Parts badge.

Same theme is continued at the interior where we find Mopar slush mats, black door-sill guards, under-seat and center-console locking storage, locking below-floor storage box, trunk storage box, side sun visors, grab handles, Trailside winch kit and leather seats.
