Don't worry -- unlike other recent special-edition Wranglers, the Rubicon Recon packs some upgraded off-road hardware under the boxy bodywork. To ensure enthusiastic trailsters don't crack an axle when the going gets rocky, each Recon is outfitted with a beefier front axle for durability. Jeep says the Recon's front axle features strengthened tubes and heavy-duty end forgings. The gearset is snug as well, hiding behind new cast front and rear differential covers.
