CAS 2020The Jeep Wrangler is easily one of the most popular new vehicles for aftermarket accessorizing; Jeep says that more than 90 percent of Wrangler owners buy at least one accessory for their vehicle.

Now, Jeep is taking the accessorized Wrangler concept one step further with the introduction of the 2020 Jeep Wrangler JPP 20 at the 2020 Chicago Auto Show.
