A Box of Springs for the Holidays

Who needs another gaming console?

Let’s say that you want to give that auto enthusiast in your life something special for the holidays. Really special.

You could get that person a sweater. Which will probably be ugly.

But that won’t necessarily be really special.

Unless you opt for a sweater from Mopar, yes that source of more than 500,000 parts and accessories for your favorite Jeep, Ram, Dodge and Chrysler vehicles.

One thing to know about the people of Mopar: They are nothing if not authentic.

So this is what that sweater is all about:

Mopar ugly holiday sweater ($66.95 – see link): Custom-knit design sweater features various Mopar logos with engine and racing icons, surrounded by blue and white snowflakes. The Omega M-stacked Mopar logo is front and center and each sleeve carries the 426 Hellephant crate engine logo. Available in sizes small to 3X.  

No punches pulled there.

But what strikes me as being most amusing authentic is the JPP 2-inch lift kit for the Wrangler 4xe.

Yes, the four springs, four FOX shocks, front lower control arms, front and rear stabilizer links, front and rear bump stops, JPP badge and various fasteners, all contained in a crate, is absolutely something that the adventurous owner of the Jeep plug-in hybrid would be happy to get.

Still, it does seem odd, “Oh, this is great! A box of springs for Christmas!”

By the way, if you decide to go for the Jeep lift kit know that you can get free shipping within the continental U.S. through December 31 if you shop at store.Mopar.com and use the promo code FREEDEC75.

That’s because they’re offering free shipping on orders more than $75 and that kit will set you back $1,495.

The free shipping is also good at WearMopar.com, but you’ll have to add something to your sweater order to bump it up a few bucks.

That shouldn’t be a problem.
