Jeep Adds Performance Wiper Kit to JPP Catalog
Back in May 2021, off-road automaker Jeep released its very own Jeep Performance Parts (JPP) catalog with Mopar, a subsidiary of Stellantis that specializes in aftermarket auto parts. See, one of the large features that attract consumers to Jeep is the amount of personalization and customization Jeepers can get. Half doors or no doors? Soft top or hardtop? Even full packages have been made available to bring out the off-road performance of Jeep models, and with all the dirt Jeeps can pick up when out trekking a trail or traveling through sand dunes, the windshield may want to stay on, and they stay intact with Gorilla Glass screens on Jeeps. What about keeping them clean? Jeep® Wrangler and Jeep Gladiator owners can get new high-performance wiper blades from the JPP Catalog.
“Our new, innovative JPP performance wiper blades quickly restore visibility while tackling the toughest trails by keeping the washer fluid where it belongs – on the glass…Perfect for off-road or on-road driving, our new ultra-capable wiper blades are just one of the more than 500 quality-tested, factory-backed parts and accessories in our Jeep portfolio.” – Mark Bosanac, North America senior vice president, Mopar service, parts and customer care
Functional and convenient, these new high-performance wiper blades can completely clear the windshield for an unobstructed view with less washer fluid, a resource that will undoubtedly be used up quickly for those that have weekly adventures. The new JPP performance wipers are designed with 12 laser-cut holes along each blade, and the washer fluid is ejected from each hole to spread it across the entire length of each blade and covering the entire windshield glass in cleaner. This results in all dirt and debris being washed away in one go. Sounds pretty helpful to reduce those moments of blindness while driving when going through the mud.
This new JPP performance wiper kit is available now in the U.S. and Canada with its own Mopar part number (PW100013AB) already in the catalog. Starting with the most recent generation of the Wrangler, the wiper kit has been made available for all 2018 model-year and newer Jeep Wrangler and Jeep Gladiator models. With a starting MSRP of $140, the kit comes with the arms, blades, and tubing required for initial installation, plus one set of replacement blades.
The addition of the new performance wiper kit follows the recent addition of half-doors to the Jeep Gladiator pickup truck and the Xtreme Recon Package to the Jeep Wrangler Willy. As we mentioned, Jeep knows Jeepers love customization, and with the success of the Gladiator, more options will be coming to it, such as half-doors, roof options, and upper-window assemblies with a weather-tight seal that features zippered plastic windows for quick-and-easy removal. Called the Dual-Door Group, the upper-window assemblies adds $4,590 onto the MSRP for the base model (sales code AJB), but for consumers that want premium upper-windows, the MSRP gets an extra $4,990 tacked onto it (sales code AJS). Both are covered by the Jeep new-vehicle warranty of three years/36,000 miles.
For added performance, the new addition of the 2022 Wrangler Willys With Xtreme Recon Package upgrades the off-road performance even further. This package adds on 35-inch BF Goodrich KO2 all-terrain tires, 17-inch by 8-inch beadlock capable wheels, 4.56:1 axle ratio, a 1.5-inch factory suspension lift with uniquely tuned shocks, swing gate reinforcement, and anti-lock four-wheel-disc performance brakes. All that adds up to an approach angle of 47.4 degrees, breakover angle of 26.7 degrees, a departure angle of 40.4 degrees, a ground clearance of 12.9 inches, and a water fording capability of 33.6 inches.
