Vilner turned its customary and intensely luxurious attentions to a two-door Jeep Wrangler Sahara Unlimited back in 2012, following that up this year with its take on the four-door version. A coat of lustrous black paint outside is brightened up LED headlights, foglights and taillights and layers of chrome laid on the grille, mirrors, door handles and fuel filler cap.

Stance gets an injection of brawn from the 20-inch wheels, and they'll roll faster thanks to the power upgrade from 197 horsepower and 339 pound-feet of torque in the 2.8-liter diesel to 257 hp and 412 lb-ft.

Inside is furious red, with cross-stitched crimson leather and Alcantara demanding your focus. When you can look away from that, you'll find the raw metal parts painted black and again ornamented in minor applications of chrome. Feel free to feast on it in the high-res gallery above.

        LOVE the "luxury dumbells" analogy! Couldn't agree more. The unfortunate truth is that there is indeed a market for high-end (luxury) dumbells. Not that I would ever consider purchasing them but there ARE those who would (and do), and there ARE some people that would shell out the cash for this ridiculous abomination also. My 2010 Mango Tango ragtop 2-door will remain unadorned by chrome or anything else for that matter, that does not serve to increase the functionality of this iconic instrument of utility and fun.

      If I had a jeep, someone offered me these mods for FREE, the answer would still be NO

        I'd take the diesel motor and tune.

      Those wheels are almost as bad as "rockstar" wheels which render the Jeep useless off road.

      I would change the wheels and tone down the chrome on the front (perhaps paint black the inside of the grill) but all in all pretty nice work. The interior is quite good.

      I like the red interior, but low profile tires, wheels that say TUFF, and a crummy plastic skid plate up front make this a joke.

      What the hell is this garbage? Bling'ed out grill and headlights are so 2010... blacked-out trim is where the industry is going these days. I will say that the seats and 2-tone interior do look nice, but for a Wrangler, they look too nice.... its not really meant for such things.

      For those that own a Jeep for all the wrong reasons.

      So they toook one of the crappiest vehicles on road and turned it into a crappy off-road vehicle at the same time? And I get to pay how much for the privilege? Pass.

        Seeing how they are at max capacity and can't make them fast enough; I'm calling you out- I don't think you know what your talking about. You just made yourself look "special"

          The ride is terrible. The interior is cramped. It's noisy, tippy, slow and gets horrible fuel economy. The only reason anyone actually buys them is so they can look soopah butch at the MALL where 99% of these things live.

        I'm a Jeep fan but Jim R's points on fuel economy, noise,ride, etc are spot on. However,it is these "charming" characteristics that make them fun. Some of us do use them off road and their shortcomings are far exceeded by their utility.

        You've never ridden in a newer one then if you think the ride sucks. The Kia Soul, Chevy trailblazer, and numerous other cars have a far worse ride actually, the JK Wranglers ride decently enough, and a better aftermarket lift such as AEV or OME ride even better then stock. The interiors are NOT as cramped as they once were, I have as much room in my 2door Wrangler as I do in my Hyundai Elantra. Its also far less noisy than pretty much ANY road car you can buy. Its seriously a great road trip vehicle, better in the 4doors. Its a far more comfortable vehicle than most consumer sedans until you step up to more premium models. My Elantra has more road noise than my SOFT TOP Wrangler........ The blanket labels of what once was a poor every day vehicle simply no longer apply. The Heaters and AC are great, the only real down side is gas mileage and if you're super sensitive, maybe some extra well managed body roll over your sports car. They're not selling like hot cakes for no reason.......

          The Hyundai Elantra is one of the smallest cars you can buy in the US. It's not exactly the best comparison if you're trying to convince someone a vehicle is roomy. I also don't think you've been in many cars if you think the Jeep is far less noisy than "pretty much ANY road car you can buy" - that's just an ignorant statement. Based on physics alone, I can guarantee that the Wrangler would have more road noise than most cars due to poor aerodynamics. I like the Jeep but your arguments are less than airtight.

          Your assumptions based on your limited scope do not automaticly make my argument poor. Actually get into a newer Jeep and be surprised then if it must come to that. The tops are thicker, wind noise is nothing like it was. The old adage of turbulence and tire nose simply is not a problem anymore unless you WANT the noise by slapping on grapplers or aggressive MTs with light bars. The Jeeps do have noise reduction in their tubs now, and you're not listening to 4 screaming banshees underneath your chassis. I actually own one, I've taken lots of road trips in it, and other vehicles. Jeep did an amazing thing with JKs and they are not horrible tool sheds to drive like older Jeeps were.

          *edit* and my bad for using "ANY road car" terms, but its up there. Get a hard top JK and I seriously will laugh at anyone who calls it noisy.
