Overland Classifieds :: 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport

There are few 4WDs that have remained as utilitarian and capable as the Jeep Wrangler. Sure, the latest model incorporates a selection of modern comforts, but these do not detract from the vehicle’s rugged go-anywhere credentials (take note Land Rover and Mercedes). It’s therefore a logical choice for overlanders with recent adventure-ready examples including this 2016 JKUR Rocklander, a 2013 AEV Rubicon Unlimited, and a 2014 AEV Build w/ Overland Extras. If you’d like a better idea of how this platform performs as a travel companion then check out Ashley Giordano’s Exploring Backroads in a Jeep Wrangler 392, or listen to Publisher Scott Brady and Matt Scott discuss Building the LJ and TJ Jeep Wrangler for Overlanding. Today’s Unlimited Sport variant has covered just 47,000 miles and showcases desirable factory options, such as the Sports S Package, Connectivity Group, Cold Weather Group, Tow Package, and more. In addition, this one-owner vehicle features a long list of premium aftermarket modifications, and the option to extend the factory warranty by an additional two years/24,000 miles.

From the Seller:

“Loaded and price lowered for a quick sale. I’m shifting to a truck (towing a large camper) and I know it’s more valuable than the trade-in number. This one-owner vehicle was purchased in July, 2017, and has covered just 47,000 miles.”

2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport

The Wrangler is fitted with a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 motor that produces 285 horsepower, 260 pound-feet of torque, and returns 16/20 mpg (city/highway). On-road performance is respectable with the Jeep hitting 60 mph in under eight seconds, but it’s when the tarmac ends that it comes to life. The Wrangler’s mountain goat capability is a result of 4WD, a body-on-frame design, high and low range, 10 inches of ground clearance, front and rear locking differentials, disconnectable front anti-roll bar, skid plates, and intelligent on-board systems, such as Hill Descent Control. These rugged features are balanced with Jeep’s Sport S Package, with comforts that include:

  • Remote keyless entry
  • Connectivity Group package
  • Max Trailer Tow Package
  • Power steering, locks, windows, and mirrors
  • Heated front seats
  • Air-conditioning

Distinguishing Features

  • Teraflex 2.5-inch lift kit and springs, Rancho adjustable shocks, Firestone air suspension system
  • Smittybilt SRC roof rack
  • RedRock Cold Air Intake
  • Quadratec front and rear entry guards
  • Rampage folding rear storage rack
  • Diver Down neoprene seat covers
