Have you ever wanted to spend an additional $25,000 on your Wrangler to make it more luxurious?Around the 4WAAM offices the answer would be an unequivocal no. We also understand that for many drivers the Wrangler is about more than going off road and they want a different kind of experience. If AEV offers the go anywhere do anything package for off road, then it looks like this Chelsea Truck Company conversion may be the equivalent for the road going variant.
After the cancellation of the venerable Land Rover Defender the company needed a new outlet and business model.
CTC: “We’ve just launched a wide-body styling package for the Jeep Wrangler, and we’re looking for that car to take over where the Defender finished,” a spokesman said.
Its current Jeep conversions cost anywhere from $10,000 to $25,000 over the price of a donor Jeep. The company says it works on about 100 of the 500 Jeep Wranglers sold in the U.K. annually. Considering Jeep sold over 200,000 units in the U.S. last year and continues to set monthly sales records, it’s clear why CTC and others want to tap into that market.
U.S. market versions are already under development and the company hopes to have them ready for sale within a year.
