You’ll want to be careful about wearing yoga pants in this one.
Jeep has created a truck that’s so lightweight, you can see through it.
The Wrangler Stitch is a trimmed-down version of the iconic off-roader that features an aluminum floor pan, gas tank and control arms, chrome moly roll cage and carbon fiber hood. Even the windshield has been chopped two inches to drop a few pounds.
But it’s most apparent weight-saving measures are transparent body panels made from architectural fabric wrapped over a solid frame.
Other upgrades include racing seats borrowed from the SRT Viper supercar, a Mopar cold air intake and exhaust, 17-inch aluminum wheels, DynaTrac Pro Rock 44 axles and a host of other off-road mods.
The result is a vehicle that tips the scales at just 3,000 pounds, about 800 pounds less than a stock Wrangler. Tread lightly, indeed.
