Jeep has released yet another special edition – this time around it’s got some serious offroad cred.  The 2017 Rubicon Recon can be had in 2 or 4 door versions, and adds beefier front axle tubes, revised rock rails, and stronger differential covers, starting at $47,040.

The Rubicon Recon has been deigned to take the place of the Rubicon Hard Rock.  Like the Hard Rock, this is essentially a Rubicon with some beefed-up bits underneath and a few special cosmetic tweaks.

The front Dana 44 has strengthened tubes and heavy-duty end forgings, and both the front and rear axles are getting upgraded cast covers.  Gear ratios are the same, with 4.10:1 front and rear ratios, Tru-Lok locking diffs, and a Rock-Trac transfer case.  The body-protecting rock rails have been shortened to allow buyers to install 35-inch tall tires down the road.

The Recon has an eight-speaker stereo and comes with heated leather seats. The seats get an embroidered Rubicon logo and there is red contrasting stitching throughout the cabin.

There is now a unique gauge cluster with extra read-outs including oil pressure and temperature readings for the transmission and coolant.
