Nothing like those traditional round Jeep headlights.

Wheeling without doors is a great experience, but eagle-eyed viewers might notice something else is missing. The side mirrors are on the doors of the Jeep, not the A-pillar. Lose the doors and you unfortunately lose the mirrors.

Front and rear lockers come standard on the Rubicon.

They'll know it's a Rubicon by the amount of mud on the hood...and the sticker.

The Rubicon comes with 4:1 low gearing and an optional 4.10 axle ratio, putting more torque to each wheel. These two features combined make it possible to crawl over weighty obstacles with low speed and greater control.

A steady throttle can push the Jeep Rubicon up and over almost anything.

The Rubicon has 10 inches of ground clearance. So go ahead, tackle those rocks.

No electronic buttons here. Shifting from 4H to 4L is done the old-school mechanical way.

A 6.5-inch touchscreen display is standard on the Wrangler, but it is not loaded with FCA's excellent Uconnect system. Instead, you get a GPS with dated looking graphics from Garmin and no backup camera.

A multifunctional steering wheel offers audio and bluetooth controls.

The optional leather seats are nice and all, but they do get hot in the sun.

The interior certainly isn't fancy, but it is functional.
