Italian coachbuilder Militum is back with its latest project, this time dubbed the FERŌX500 and based around the Jeep Wrangler.
Militem’s FERŌX500 began life as a flagship Wrangler Rubicon 392 but has undergone a number of upgrades to improve its functionality and overhaul its appearance. Those who want to pick the key to an example must be different with 149,500 ($ 158,000).

Upgrades include a dazzling body kit with a new bumper and an overhead front fascia with grille. The Militem wheel arches also flared and created a new hood for the Wrangler, complete with a large air intake to cool the V8. The CoachBuilder completes the exterior hinges with the Wrangler Mudflap in black, an LED strip on the front bumper, a front parking sensor, an electronic retractable running board, and a tinted LED.
One of the most interesting upgrades is the 22 × 9.5-inch forged wheel wrapped in 325/50 tires. Those looking for a little shoe can choose a 20 × 10-inch wheel set with all-terrain tires. Key changes made to the rear include the removal of excess wheels and the removal of individual quads.
The brakes on the FERŌX500 are also a healthier upgrade from the standard Wrangler Rubicon 392. The front has a 370mm disc with a six-piston caliper and the rear has a 370mm disc with a four-piston caliper. Braid brake lines are available both front and rear.
Militum has also worked on the interior of the Jeep. New front seats have been fitted and hand-wrapped with napa leather and alcantara, finished in a combination of black and red. Newly-appointed leather is also available across dashboards, instrument panels, door panels and luggage compartment linings. A new steering wheel with carbon fiber trim is also fitted, and if customers prefer to make the cabin look a little less attractive than this particular FERŌX500, there are plenty of personalization options available.
As mentioned, the starting price of each Militem FERŌX500 is € 149,500 plus VAT. Each model has a 36 month / 100,000km warranty
