New files for several of today's most popular vehicles have recently been added to the SEMA Technology Transfer program, including CAD data for the 2013 Jeep Wrangler.
   
The SEMA Technology Transfer program has recently received a series of new CAD files, including new files for the ’13 Jeep Wrangler. The program was developed with the intent of minimizing or eliminating the necessity of reverse engineering for manufacturing members to produce products.

The inclusion of the files reaffirms the commitment of Chrysler to SEMA manufacturing members and represents the first time in two years that new Jeep files have been made available. CAD files available currently for the Wrangler focus on chassis, suspension, exterior body, and the instrument panel/gauge cluster.

To access these files, manufacturers are encouraged to visit www.sema.org/tech-transfer. Or, manufacturers that would like access to additional files not mentioned above are also invited to visit www.sema.org/tech-transfer as well and make a request. More Chrysler models will become available in the next few weeks, including files for the all-new ’13 Ram 1500 truck.
