For the last 65 years, Jankel has been designing and manufacturing military protection solutions that are currently in use all over the world. From their light duty and armored vehicles to their BLASTech seats used in MRAPs, Jankel builds products extra tough to meet military specifications and performance levels. Earlier this year, they decided to bring to the market the “first military-grade civilian” Jeep. Say hello to the THRASHER.
The THRASHER is a limited edition, Jeep JK Wrangler featuring many of Jankel’s military derived upgrades. According to Jankel, “THRASHER is a vehicle built for use; strong and reliable, driven by civilians who want performance, capability and style, with no mission too extreme.” The THRASHER is available in two models: THRASHER, and THRASHER X.
THRASHER starts with upgrades like: heavy-duty front and rear bumpers, skid plates, spare tire carrier with elevated third brake light, rock rails, and steel fender flares. The Jeep is lifted using a 2.5″ suspension lift and rides on 17″ aluminum wheels wrapped in 35″ tires. Cooled and heated front bucket seats provide extra comfort while LED headlights and tail lights and all-weather protective floor mats round out the package.
Those that opt for the THRASHER X package will get even more upgrades throughout. The stock axles are replaced with a Dynatrac ProRock 44 up front and a ProRock 60 in the rear. The new, heavy-duty axles are paired with Ox electric lockers front and rear. The THRASHER X also gets wide body bumpers and steel fender flares. The suspension bumps up to a 3.25″ lift in the THRASHER X and military style headlights and tail lights are added to the front and rear.
The THRASHER and THRASHER X packages can be using 4 door Unlimited Sport, Sahara, or Rubicon models. Special Jankel Matte Finish paint is standard for all vehicles and buyers can choose from: Dark-Thirty Black, Sahara Sands Tan, or Galilee Green. Those looking to take their THRASHER to the next level can order and entire lineup of optional upgrades like a WARN Zeon winch, beadlock wheels, roof racks, or an authentic military style decal kit.
