DRIVE ON ANY TERRAIN

Not all 4x4s are created equal. Jeep® Brand vehicles are designed and tested in some of the most inhospitable locations on the planet so you can feel confident when driving in a rain or snow storm or when off-roading with like-minded friends. Choose an all-weather-capable Jeep Brand 4x4 system to master any terrain and help feed your passion for adventure.

MASTER THE MUCK


Driving in muddy conditions can be deceptive. You will need to get out and use a stick to check the depth of the mud or water. Jeep® Brand 4x4 vehicles have sealed electrical systems, a high air intake and available skid plates for additional undercarriage protection. To keep from spinning tires, experienced off-roaders often use a higher gear to control momentum and speed and let the tires’ tread do the work.

OUTSTANDING 4x4 TECHNOLOGY

It should come as no surprise that the Jeep® Brand is one of the world leaders in 4x4 technology—it’s the backbone of the brand. Our range of sophisticated 4x4 systems lets you find your own way up, down, through or around almost anything. You can trust the Jeep Brand with its 75-plus years of 4x4 mastery to help you tackle anything Mother Nature sends your way.

OFF-ROAD DIFFERENTIALS  
Transferring power to the wheels is one of the most important aspects of 4x4 driving. Jeep® vehicles include either mechanical, electronic, or brake-assisted differentials to help maximize power delivery to your vehicle wheels for increased traction. 

FRONT SWAY BAR DISCONNECT SYSTEM 
This system, standard on the Wrangler Rubicon, lets you automatically disengage the front sway bar when driving under 18 mph in 4 Low mode. The front wheels can then drop and compress for improved articulation. 

SKID PLATES  
Many of our vehicles come standard with stamped steel skid plates. These high-strength steel plates are engineered to help protect your Jeep® Brand vehicle's guts when battling boulders and jagged rocks. 

ROCK RAILS  
Available extra-tough body-mounted rails (aka rock sliders or sill guards) help provide additional protection when off-roading. 

BODY-ON-FRAME DESIGN  
The Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited are built with a frame that is fully boxed for strength, flexibility and durability.  

DANA® 44 HEAVY-DUTY SOLID AXLES  
Durability comes from heavy shafts, stiff housings, large pinion bearings and above-center pinion mountings for smoother, quieter operation. (Front Dana® 44 heavy-duty axle is standard only on the Rubicon. Dana 30 front axle is standard on all other models.)  

4x4 VEHICLES

Capability is at our core. Choose a Jeep® Brand 4x4 and you can rest assured your vehicle will live up to its tough-to-the-core reputation. Jeep Brand engineers tirelessly torture test vehicles in some of the most brutal environments known to mankind so that you can confidently hit the trails or maneuver through potholed streets on your way to the next big thing.
