This second generation Jeep Wrangler has been lengthened by almost 1.40 meters, to be transformed into a “limousine” version!
Until 2007 and the launch of the third generation of this iconic 4 × 4, the Jeep Wrangler was only offered in a short three-door version. The few fans of the brand who wanted a five-door version have embarked on in-house conversions, but this one is truly out of the ordinary, with its five doors and its third row of seats !
Jeep Wrangler TJ: up to six seats
This Jeep Wrangler Rubicon “limousine” is the work of Illusion Coach Builds, an American coachbuilder: the transformation was carried out in March 2006, just after its delivery. The wheelbase of the Wrangler TJ has been increased by almost four feet , while two doors have been added to the rear, as well as two additional seats which bring the total to six seats , all in three rows. A custom-made hood covers the entire model.
Aside from the addition of the third row of seats, the interior of this Wrangler remains fairly basic: there is black leather trim, air conditioning, and a CD car radio. Under the hood, we find a 4.0-liter straight- six, developing 193 horsepower for 318 Nm of torque . Everything is transmitted to the four-wheel drive via a four-speed automatic transmission, while a MagnaFlow exhaust line completes the list of modifications.
This Jeep Wrangler Rubicon limousine only displays 67,650 kilometers on the odometer, and has been auctioned on the Cars & Bids site: at the time of writing, the auctions have passed the 10,000 dollar mark, i.e. the equivalent of 8,200 euros.
