Priced between about $7500 and $22K, the Upcountry, Upcountry+, and Level II kits bring bigger tires and other add-ons.
- The 2024 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon and Willys are now available with multiple AEV upfit options that cost between $7500 and $22K.
- The Upcountry and Upcountry+ kits include a 2.0-inch suspension lift and 35-inch BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2 tires.
- The Rubicon-only Level II kit has 37-inch K02s and 14.2 inches of ground clearance—it’s basically the setup on the AEV-spec 2023 Wrangler 20th Anniversary Editions.
Three new upfit options for 2024 Wranglers are now available from American Expedition Vehicles (AEV) for Jeep owners who desire even more off-road capability from their rigs. Both the Rubicon and, for the first time, the more reasonably priced Willys model, are supported by the kits.
Wrangler’s Upcountry Kits
Two-door versions of the ’24 Wrangler Willys and Rubicon start at $41,190 and $47,190, respectively. Tack another $7476 onto those price tags for the regular Upcountry kit. It includes a 2.0-inch suspension lift and 35-inch BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2 tires as well as AEV-branded satin black Pintler wheels and a jack base. Fender flare extensions and a spare-tire relocation kit from Jeep Performance Parts (JPP) are also part of the upfit.
The Upcountry+ costs $11,599 and includes all those goodies and more. The other upgrades are AEV’s EX front bumper, which is made of hot-stamped Boron steel and has a hoop and end caps that accommodate the stock fog lights. Also included from AEV are a front skid plate, a non-winch cover plate, and relocating the front camera.
Wrangler’s Level II Kit
AEV’s Level II setup is essentially what was offered on the 2023 Wrangler 20th Anniversary Edition, which were limited to 150 copies and cost an astronomical $94,358 (4xe) and $113,820 (Rubicon 392). While Willys customers don’t get a shot at the top kit, the Rubicon crew do, as it’s exclusively available on that model. It costs an extra $20,049 for the V-6 version and $22,099 for the 4xe plug-in hybrid.
The AEV rear bumper, off-road lighting, steering damper, and Zeon 10-S winch are all part of the Level II package, which also includes 37-inch BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2 tires on a Rubicon. Components from the Upcountry+ kit (such as the EX front bumper and skid plate) are standard on all models. Each vehicle rides on a set of AEV Savegre II wheels in satin black.
The increased height allows the Jeep to pass through water measuring 37.1 inches in depth and gives ground clearance of 14.2 inches. It has a 50-degree approach angle, a 33-degree breakover angle, and a 43-degree departure angle, among other clearances.
Those who are interested in ordering accessories for their ’24 Jeep Wrangler Willys or Rubicon should do so at their neighborhood Jeep dealers. According to Jeep, the AEV improvements are first-come, first-served.
