The Jeep and Mopar brands have once again joined forces to create seven new, custom-built concept vehicles for the annual Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, Utah, March 24 – April 1. Jeep 4SPEED
Light, quick and nimble, the 4SPEED concept is the latest in a line of lightweight Easter Jeep Safari concepts. Built “4SPEED,” this latest lightweight concept, following the popular Pork Chop concept in 2011 and Stitch concept in 2013. On the exterior, the concept features custom weight saving measures including a carbon fiber hood, high-clearance carbon fiber fender flares and a carbon fiber rear tub with perforated aluminum panels.
Inspired by Baja desert racers, the Sandstorm concept is all about blitzing long, sandy straightaways while still being capable of handling the daily driving duties. To fit the Baja look, the exterior features custom styling cues including a vented carbon fiber hood, vented high clearance front and rear fender flares and a cage that include a rear mounted lay down style spare tire carrier. The exterior handles and swing gate have been removed while the rear doors have been chopped for a cleaner look.
The B-Ute concept is equipped with a variety of Jeep Performance Parts for the ultimate off-road adventure. The concept’s exterior features unique front and rear fascias and upper grille area, a hood with heat extractors, and wider flares. Jeep Performance Parts featured on the B-Ute include a 1.5-inch lift kit, a roof rack and rock rails.
Jeep Wagoneer Roadtrip
The Wagoneer Roadtrip stirs up nostalgic memories of going to Yellowstone National Park on a summer family vacation. This particular Wagoneer retains its heritage and charm as it continues to utilize its original steel body, while the chassis and drivetrain have been updated. The wheelbase has been stretched an additional five inches, and the body has been updated to accept the additional length, a wider track and custom fender flares.
The Nacho serves as a rolling catalog loaded with selections from the Mopar brand’s Performance Parts menu, offering a blueprint off-roaders can follow to create their own custom trail vehicle. Before a single part or accessory is added, this 2018 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon already stands out thanks to the rare Nacho yellow color. The Performance Parts featured on the Nacho concept include a brawny hood that is accented with the standard black hood graphic featuring the all-new JPP badge, which is engineered to accommodate a cold-air intake that feeds the 2.0-liter turbocharged I-4 engine.
Available Performance Parts concept modifications combine to bring to life the Jeep Jeepster concept. Based on a Wrangler Rubicon, this concept evokes the color palette and speedy styling of the 1966 Jeepster. The original’s classic two-tone graphic theme is mirrored on its modern-day counterpart with a Firecracker Red body, set off by a Bright White concept hardtop, chopped by two inches, and a Bright White custom windshield raked back 2.5 degrees to create a cropped, compact appearance.
The J-Wagon concept is personalized with Performance Parts to create a premium-styled vehicle equally at home on the trails and urban cityscapes. Starting as a Wrangler Sahara, the J-Wagon is painted a conceptual Warm Neutral Grey with warm-tinted glass, and complemented with subtle Brass Monkey touches throughout the exterior. The J-Wagon features a version of the JPP hood designed with a cutout kit to work with the available snorkel, an appropriate choice for the sealed-cabin style of the vehicle.
