This month six new Jeep concepts created some serious buzz at the 2014 Easter Jeef Safari held in Moab. The 9-day event, which is hosted by Red Rock 4-Wheelers Inc., consists of mostly daylong trail rides with participants supplying their own four-wheel drive vehicle.
While the term “concept” usually leaves us imagining a vehicle sharply designed and mostly out of the reach of commercial production, Jeep brings the term “concept” to us in the shape of something much more attainable. These concepts comprise vehicles and accessories by Mopar and Jeep Performance Parts that any owner can access to enhance their off-road vehicle.
Three Wrangler concepts hit the trails called the Level Red, the Maximum Performance and the Mojo. The Level Red and the Mojo are both 3.6-liter V-6 engines with a Jeep Performance Parts lift kit, not currently available but coming in the near future. Both of these concepts also carry Dana 44 crate axles on the front and rear as well as Jeep Performance Parts Rock-Trac transfer case. While the Level Red rides on 35-inch BF Goodrich Mud Terrain tires with prototype 17-inch beadlock wheels, the Mojo kicks it up a notch with the 37-inch versions.
Obvious differences include the Level Red’s color combination which transitions into the interior as well as the Mopar half-door kit and Rubicon Tenth Anniversary bumpers. The Mojo also shows off its LED head and rear lights, a bikini top and a two-inch lift that provides room for those larger tires.
The Maximum Performance Wrangler (our personal favorite) takes all the additions of the Mojo and the Level Red and increases the lift kit to four inches, a pair of Dana 60 axles and a slick LED mounted bar above the windshield. The Rubicon X’s hood and prototype flattop fenders really create a “no questions asked” style that we are drooling to get our hands on.
While the Jeep Grand Cherokee took the trails with minor enhancements including BF Goodrich 20-inch wheels and aluminum wheels, the Cherokee took two new concepts aptly named the Adventurer and the Dakar. The contrasted black leather interior of the Adventurer is stylish while the heavily armored underbelly and JPP rock rails shows off its tougher side. The Dakar brings a more aggressive color scheme and trades the all-terrain tires for 33-inch BF Goodrich Mud Terrain tires and a prototype lift kit from Jeep Performance Parts.
