Startech sport exhausts will soon be available for all
engine and body variants of the Jeep. The fully
stainless-steel exhausts feature one characteristic
oval chrome tailpipe each on the right and left, and

The interior of the Jeep can also be upgraded with
Startech accessories such as an ergonomically shaped
Startech sport steering wheel and polished scuff
plates for driver and passengers.
Additional customization requests
can be fulfilled by the Startech upholstery shop, with
partial or full leather interiors made from especially
soft yet durable Mastik leather.
