After the popular Sand Trooper made its debut at SEMA in 2012, Mopar updated, redesigned, and created the Sand Trooper II to take on Moab. The Sand Trooper II features a 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 to give it 375 horsepower and 400 ft.-lb. of torque. A five-speed automatic transmission transfers all that torque to the Mopar eight-lug front and rear Portal axles. Prototype forged beadlock wheels boast a 40-inch off-road tire, giving Sand Trooper II its iconic stance.
Mopar exterior enhancements include a 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.
