October 30, 2018 , Las Vegas - Mopar, the service, parts and customer-care brand of FCA US LLC, has teamed up with Dana to introduce new Jeep® Performance Parts (JPP) axles for the all-new Jeep Wrangler. 'JPP Ultimate Dana 44™ AdvanTEK®' axles will be on display in the Mopar brand's exhibit at the 2018 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show, scheduled for October 30 – November 2 in Las Vegas.
The 'JPP Ultimate Dana 44™ AdvanTEK®' axles have also been installed in the Nacho Jeep Wrangler concept, on display in the Mopar SEMA Show exhibit. The collaboration between Mopar and Dana, a continuation of a 70-year-plus relationship, delivers Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) quality to current-generation Jeep Wrangler owners.
'Performance axles for the all-new Jeep Wrangler are the latest additions to our extensive line of parts and accessories for hardcore off-roaders,' said Steve Beahm, Head of Parts & Service (Mopar) and Passenger Car Brands, FCA - North America. 'From lift kits to beadlock wheels to LED lights and now performance axles, the Mopar brand has trail enthusiasts covered with more than 200 Jeep Performance Parts.'
Made in the USA, 'JPP Ultimate Dana 44™ AdvanTEK®' axles are built strong so hardcore Jeep Wrangler off-roaders can go where others fear to tread. High-strength features include AdvanTEK gear technology that reduces gear set packaging with more strength and durability, allowing for a condensed carrier and improving ground clearance.
Chromoly 4340 axle shafts, thicker quarter-inch steel bracket mounts, thicker 9.5 mm tubes and upgraded 1410 U-Joints also increase trail durability. A nodular iron differential cover adds to the rugged appearance while providing extra ribbing for strength and increasing overall rigidity.
The high-clearance carrier design adds an additional half-inch of ground clearance, and an expanded range of gear ratios (4.56, 4.88, 5.13 and 5.38) helps accommodate for a variety of tire sizes. The direct bolt-in axle assembly allows use of OEM components and provides virtual 'plug and play.' The axle assembly includes electronic differential lockers already installed.
'JPP Ultimate Dana 44™ AdvanTEK®' axles will be available in November 2018. For more information, visit www.mopar.com.
