Mopar® Announces Dozens of New Aftermarket Parts at Moab
Jeep® Safari 2009
Utah, Apr 8, 2009 - Mopar®
today unveiled a significantly expanded parts catalog for Jeep® and
Dodge truck customers.
The Mopar parts catalog now has approximately 100 new Authentic Jeep
Accessories, Authentic Dodge Accessories and Performance Parts from
Mopar, solidifying the brand's place as a major competitor in the Jeep
and truck accessory and performance marketplace.
"Mopar has taken the step to add 100 new off-road, truck and
performance parts and accessories in the last year in response to
customer demand," said Jim Sassorossi, Director-Mopar Global Parts
Sales and Marketing, Chrysler LLC. "An additional benefit is that now
3,250 Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge dealerships located across the United
States are the one-stop destination point for all of our customers'
Mopar is the source for all of Chrysler LLC's original equipment parts
for Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge vehicles. Mopar parts are unique in that
they are engineered by the same team that creates all
factory-authorized vehicle specifications for Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge
products. That means Mopar's direct connection to the factory offers
customers something no other aftermarket parts company can provide.
Following is a sampling of the most significant new accessories and
performance parts from Mopar:
and 4-inch Lift Kits
now offers Jeep and Dodge truck
customers a complete and comprehensive line of lift kits. Mopar is
expanding its off-road performance line to include Dodge trucks with a
new 4-inch lift kit, which requires a minimum 18-inch wheel and allows
for up to 37-inch tires.
In addition, a Mopar 2-inch lift kit is now available for 2007 to 2009
model year two-door and four-door model Jeep Wrangler vehicles. Most
moderate Jeep Wrangler lifts use coil spring spacers with the factory
coil springs. However Mopar's replacement coil spring lift allows as
much suspension articulation as most 4-inch lift kits, resulting in
increased performance with minimal impact on vehicle center-of-gravity.
Also new, Mopar's 2-inch lift kit is covered by a Mopar Performance
first Limited Lifetime Warranty. Both the 2-inch and 4-inch lift kits
by Mopar are currently available for purchase.
and Half-door Kits

model vehicles have been available with factory-installed half-doors,
which have become known as a signature, uniquely Jeep feature. This
year, Authentic Jeep Accessories by Mopar offers half-window kits and
half-door kits for 2007 model year and newer Jeep Wrangler vehicles.
These doors are available in kit form, which will enable customers to
convert their Jeep Wrangler for summertime and trail-riding use and
easily switch back to full doors when needed. Both kits will be
available starting in June 2009.

kit for 1997 to 2006 model year Jeep Wranglers. This new front and rear

4.7-liter Stroker Motor
up on Mopar's announcement
last year that it would investigate adding a stroker motor to its
portfolio, the parts maker displayed a 4.7-liter engine on the XJ
Stroker vehicle at Moab. This is the same motor that won the 4X4 SUV
category at the 2008 Score International Baja 1000 in Essenada, Mexico.
Mopar plans to launch the ATK 4.7-liter Stroker motor for Jeep
applications starting in September 2009.
