To celebrate 10 years as the Jeep Wrangler's roughest, toughest variant, the Rubicon gets a 10th Anniversary Edition for 2013 to accentuate its off-road presence. The anniversary edition is more than a badge; it features new off-road gear for an additional half-inch of ride height plus steel bumpers with provisions for a winch.

The increased ride height comes from new springs, and BF Goodrich KM2 off-road tires are fitted under the body. The steel bumpers also have removable end caps to reduce possible interference with obstacles and look the part of an aftermarket off-road bumper. Tenth-anniversary models also feature a new "Power Dome" hood with dual heat extractors and interior add-ons like red leather seats and anniversary badging.

Both two-door Wrangler and four-door Wrangler Unlimited models can be equipped with the limited-production Rubicon 10th Anniversary Package, which is available spring 2013.
