The new Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 1941, a special package loaded with Jeep performance parts, is on display now at the Geneva International Motor Show.

Highlights include a two-inch suspension lift kit, snorkel, rock rails, black door sills, black fuel filler door and all-weather mats. The finishing touch to this tough configuration is 1941 graphics commemorating the first year the original Willys Jeep was produced.

In total, more than 200 accessories from the Jeep performance parts catalogue have found a home on the jacked-up Jeep, including a matte black seven-slot front grille, mud guards, off-road lights and mirror caps — all that black contrasts perfectly with the Hella Yella yellow paint. Customization continues inside, with a black-mesh sun shade and front grab handles, as well as unique graphics on the steering wheel and shift knob.

In Geneva, the special 1941 configuration is presented on the Rubicon model. It will also be available, in summer 2019, on both the Sport and Sahara trims.
