Silver Jeep Wrangler by Project Kahn – Click above for image gallery

The last time a Jeep looked this at home in Europe, it was helping American forces liberate the old world from Nazi occupation. But that was another era. Europe is a new place today – necessity having mandated the rebuilding of so many bombed-out cities – but the Jeep Wrangler (or the older Civilian Jeeps in their various incarnations) has remained a constant. So the people at Project Kahn evidently thought it was about due for a modern makeover.

Kahn's silver Jeep Wrangler is more about the whole than the sum of its parts, but to get it there, Kahn and company dropped the suspension, fitted 20-inch alloys, retrofitted the interior and, apparently, gave it a proper respray. The result (that is, an off-road workhorse with a dropped suspension and oversize wheels) sits at just about the opposite end of the spectrum from the recently-announced Mopar JK-8 Independence kit, and may make about as much sense as the proverbial screen door on a submarine. That said, we've got to admit it looks the business... whatever business that might be. See for yourself in the high-res image gallery below.

      o_0 I think this was one of those things someone did just to "do", which I can't fault anyone for. Its good to have people innovate and push the boundaries of whats normal and expected.

      That being said; If this is Europe, the sensible alternative to this would be the Land Rover LR4. With the dubs and drop hampering the Jeep, the Land Rover will best it in damn near every aspect.

      Looks pointless with those huge wheels.

        So true man. I live in a area with crappy roads and I see people running 20 inches on there civics with the rims all bent up. I spend the money on high end tires instead.

        Wheels that big are pointless on any car, unless of course you think they look cool. One day we will all look back on them like people do Disco music.

      Looks good, especially for a post turtle...

      *Dislike*

      Haha, they couldn't afford the 5th rim for the spare!

      What a waste.

      Best part of that Jeep is the CRD badge on the back.

      What a waste!!

      This is almost as obnoxious as those guys who put "22s" on their old Monte Carlos and Caprices, and actually think it looks cool!! I hope this does not become a trend!!

      A lowered Jeep is a crime against humanity. But I guess the DUB crowd needs something to move on to now that there are no more new HUMMERs.

      Short of the CRD I'm pretty offended at this urban fail package.....

      The best feature of this is its CRD engine and the corresponding CRD badge on the back...

      While I understand the Wrangler diehards see this as blasphemy, I'd much rather drive this around than a Jeep Compass...

        I agree, as long as I have the option of lifting it and swapping out the wheels for smaller ones and the tires for larger ones. Otherwise, it would be torture.
