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.
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 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.
The 2016 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Unlimited starts at $36,495. The top-of-the-line Hard Rock option package adds $4,800, while the optional five-speed automatic transmission adds $1,350 and the 4.10 axle ratio puts $695 extra to the bottom line. With various other extras tacked on, all told the Rubicon Unlimited tops out at $47,620.
