A rise in petrol prices, thanks to brent crossing the 70USD mark in January 2018, is causing residents of the UAE to shy away from large SUV’s and trucks. For decades, petrol prices were heavily subsidized and with UAE’s vision of retracting from fossil fuel and into renewable energy, the low fuel prices have become a thing of the past. Read More
RAMY Automotive brings out the ‘MARSHAL’ Jeep Wrangler JK 2DR. A supercharged withmore than 400 HP on the engine and with a 2.5” racing lift kit, the MARSHAL rings true to its name in commanding the desert terrain and leading the pack.
With more than 20 years of serving customers in the UAE, RAMY Automotive has built up a reputation of excellence in quality in modifying Jeeps and other off-roaders along with after sales support that has become the standard in its industry.
Their latest project is the ‘MARSHAL’, based on a brand new 2015 Jeep Wrangler JK 2DR. The name Marshal means trust and off roaders are led by trusted people who understand the terrain and their ability in guiding the convoy deep into the desert safely and back.
The ‘MARSHAL’ project was conceived just for such people who demand the best in off roading abilities and gear to get others out of a sticky mess. RAMY Automotive brought in a panel of leading experts who leads the convoy and asked them on what kit would make the perfect ‘MARSHAL’. After months of testing and picking the right balance of add-ons, the ‘MARSHAL’ was conceived. Extensive testing of the powertrain and suspension of the add-ons have been conducted on a separate test vehicle before being selected to be fitted out on the ‘MARSHAL’
The ‘MARSHAL’ comes with a power upgrade using a Sprintex Supercharger and tuned to more than 400 HP on the engine. Chassis upgrades by AOR (American Off Road) 2.5” LIFT KIT and King RACING Shocks both front and rear and all these coupled to 35” Mudd Claw Tires that glides through the terrain as easily as a it does over paved roads.
The ‘MARSHAL’ project is one of many which would usher in a new era at RAMY Automotive. The company is poised at a new business structure where customers can buy one off Jeep’s which has been designed by passionate people. People who understand the terrain of the Emirates, the weather and back up with manufactuers warranty for the add-ons where as the vehicle will carry the Trading Enterprise warranty.
With a price tag of AED 235,000.00 (AED 205,000.00 if ordered without Sprintex Supercharger), the ‘MARSHAL’ is around AED 115,000.00 over the price of a standard Wrangler JK 2DR. This price brings a piece of mind to customers who expect the best for their Jeep and with the backing of the RAMY Automotive brand, a piece of mind on installation and warranty services for a trouble free Jeep experience.

The Jeep brand is synonymous with the off-roading culture and lifestyle here in the UAE and other parts of the world as well. It’s the versatility and utilitarian nature of the Jeep that makes it easy to customize to one’s needs that in turn makes it an ideal tool to explore the unknown for novices and experts alike. The Jeep started its life in 1941 where it went into production specifically for the military, arguably making them the oldest four-wheel drive mass-production vehicles now known as SUV’s.
RAMY Automotive is the region’s leading and market leader in customising Jeeps. Their expertise is not only limited to Jeep’s but spans the range of major off-road vehicles used in the desert. It’s their knowledge in building past project Jeep’s that has led them to try out something different.
Dubbed as “Excalibur”, the new Pick-Up started it’s life as a Jeep JK Unlimited Sport. Conversion to a pick-up led to the removal of rear seats and doors, the roof and using this space to make the bed of a pick-up. The story of the conversion did not stop at that, as RAMY Automotive often does is to create not only a purpose built vehicle but also in customizations to its interior and exterior in recreating a sense of mystique as the name given to the project suggests.
The one-off projects are in great demand from clients residing in the GCC as they not only get to see the level of customization that could be done to the Jeep but also selected use of aftermarket add ons to the exterior and suspension which raises the visual dynamics as well as its off-road capabilities of an iconic brand. RAMY Automotive endorses and uses the brands they represent in the region to showcase what can be done and how well it can be done.
