“Jeep TJ Unlimited Rubicon is the ultimate vehicle in terms of
versatility, whether it’s used for serious off-roading or to transport family,
friends and cargo,” said Ron Smith, Vice President, Marketing, DaimlerChrysler
Canada. “With its extended overall length and added cargo space, Jeep TJ
Unlimited Rubicon offers a smooth and comfortable ride even in extreme
conditions, without sacrificing any of the open-air fun and freedom associated
with driving a legendary Jeep.”

The 2005 Jeep TJ Unlimited Rubicon’s off-road system includes front and
rear Dana model 44 axles with “air-actuated” Tru-Lok locking front and
rear differentials, a Rock-Trac 4:1 low-range transfer case, four-wheel
disc brakes and 31-inch Goodyear TJ “Maximum Traction/Reinforced” tires, which
provide an extra one-half inch of ground clearance versus the standard Jeep TJ
Unlimited model.

A new dash pad, hood pad and thick rear carpet padding in the cargo area
contribute to a 30 percent quieter ride in Jeep TJ Unlimited models. Inside, access to the second row is improved with tip-and-slide front seats on both driver and passenger sides.

Jeep TJ Unlimited models have a towing capability of 1,588 kg (3,500 lbs.), which is 680 kg (1,500 lbs.) more than the standard Jeep TJ. The Jeep TJ Unlimited Rubicon is powered by the 190-horsepower 4.0-litre inline 6 cylinder engine, available with a four-speed automatic transmission or new, standard six-speed manual transmission.
