Jeep Wrangler Pickup Spy Photos Reveals New Wheels



Development takes time and ample testing of prototypes are the norm, so seeing spy shots of Jeep’s new Wrangler based pickup roaming around is a common sight. But these latest spy shots provided by AutoGuide revealed to us a new piece of information.

Getting a good look at the test mule’s tires, we can see that they’re different from the usual Goodyear Wrangler tires borrowed from the standard Wrangler prototypes. Instead this test mule is sitting on a set of Falken Wildpeak A/T tires. Jeep could be in the process of deciding which factory tires they should go with, or what we’re seeing could be a Wrangler Pickup in a higher trim thus the different tires.

Aside from that bit of new information, everything else on the prototype is still kept tightly under wraps and not much else can be seen. Still the same four door body we’ve been seeing recently, though a two door variant could be a possibility if Jeep were to follow the Wrangler recipe.

We’ll have to keep guessing until its reveal, which most likely won’t take place until late next year as it could appear on showroom floors as a 2019 model. In the meantime, we have the Wrangler JL’s reveal to look forward to.

Makes sense to give the pickup its own set of tires and I think the wildpeak A/T line was designed specifically for pickup trucks. We could be looking at the standard tires for the Wrangler pickup.

Jeep still has a while before they need to reveal their Wrangle pickup so the tires could be swapped out for something else later. But if these are performance tires, they my be sold as an option or only available for higher trims.

Can't be much different when it comes to segment of tire and odds are what we see here could make it to production. Often tires are the most predicable thing on any new car, in the odd occasion a vehicle will debut with a new tire, Wranglers aren't nearly as special to make that happen.

so you don't think we'll be getting the Falken Wildpeak A/T tires instead of the standard Wrangler onesÉ

Looking at the Wrangler line-up right now, Don't they all come with one standard tire and different rim designs? Or do the higher trims come with higher performance tires?

It isn't just different rims, there are other tire options as well depending on the trim. Some will get standard BF Goodrich tires, others get off road ones, etc. I assume the same would apply to the pickup, though maybe not with Goodrich as standard.

If that's the case then I'm pretty sure there will still be close to the same options considering manufacturers typically have contracts with these tire companies and will often supply the same sets sort of thing

From what I recall its mostly been those BFG's and Goodyear SR-A's but BFG's seem to be favored a lot over the Goodyears for owners really putting them to work. Wrangler demographic seems to be shifting towards people who mainly city drive, so that could reflect tire choice and feedback.

Most Wrangler pickups will never see much climbing aside from those somewhat well groomed off-road trails, so those average double duty tires would work well with the pickup. won't perform all that well in the city and country trail, just a jack of all trades tires that doesn't excel anywhere.
