2013 Jeep Moab Easter Safari Concepts Unveiled

2013 Jeep Moab Easter Safari Concepts Unveiled

Every year, Jeep builds special concepts specifically for the Moab Easter Jeep Safari, and the brand has just released details on each of its six vehicles.

Five are modified Wranglers and one is a Grand Cherokee, all of which are fitted with specially designed off-road focused parts from Mopar and Jeep.

Jeep Grand Cherokee TrailHawkJeep-Grand-Cherokee-Trailhawk-Concept (2).jpg

As an update to an existing model, the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk Concept gets some new modifications and most importantly Jeep’s new EcoDiesel V6 engine. The Trailhawk sits on 35-inch tires and 17-inch aluminum wheels. It gets larger wheel openings, flared fenders, front and rear skid plates, duel rear tow hooks and rock rails. For looks, the Trailhawk borrows from the SRT Grand Cherokee, taking its hood, front and rear fascias, matte black roof and roof rails.

Jeep Wrangler Mopar ReconJeep-Wrangler-Mopar-Recon.jpg

The Jeep Wrangler Mopar Recon gets its power from a 6.4-liter HEMI V8 from Mopar that makes 470 hp. For optimum off-road performance, the Mopar Recon gets Dana 60 front and rear axles with 4.10 gearing, a 4.5-inch prototype long-arm lift kit, and eight-lug beadlock wheels with 39-inch off-road tires. On top of that performance, the Mopar Recon is fitted with front and rear half doors, modified bumpers, a Warn winch, rock rails, LED headlamps, a canvas soft top, taillamp guards and more.

Jeep Wrangler StitchJeep-Wrangler-Stitch (2).jpg

Weight loss was the focus of the next Moab concept, which is the Jeep Wrangler Stitch. The Stitch has a 3,000-lb. curb weight, giving it a similar power-to-weight ratio as the SRT Grand Cherokee. The audio system, heating and air conditioning, rear seats, doors, and sections of the body were all removed from the Wrangler Stitch to save weight while the front seats were taken from the SRT Viper. The roll cage is now a chrome moly unit, while the hood has been replaced with carbon fiber. The stitch sits on 35-inch off-road tires and 17-inch aluminum wheels, and gets DynaTrac Pro Rock 44 axles with 4.88 gears, along with locking differentials and King shocks with pneumatic bump stops.

Jeep Wrangler Sand Trooper IIJeep-Wrangler-Sand-Trooper-II-1.jpg

Originally debuted at SEMA 2012, the Wrangler Sand Trooper II is an even more aggressive version of that concept. Power comes from a 5.7-liter HEMI V8 to give it 375 hp and 400 ft-lb of torque, all of which is sent to prototype forged beadlock wheels wrapped in 40-inch off-road tires. The doors and windows are cut in half for some classic Jeep style, while the fenders and bumpers are modified for added clearance. Also included in the Sand Trooper II are LED off-road lights and headlamps, swing away rear tire carrier, trailer-tow hitch receiver, rock rails, a winch, and vented hood.

Jeep Wrangler Flat TopJeep-Wrangler-FlatTop.jpg

The Jeep Wrangler Flat Top concept was built to have an upscale appearance inside and out. It gets a one piece windowless hard top, which along with the absence of a B-pillar help to give the Flat Top a great wide open feeling. The Flat Top gets a sandstone, copper and brown theme that can be seen in the door and hood hinges, tow hooks, grille slats and headlamp surrounds which are a copper tone, while the bumpers, side rails, side mirrors and hood decals are finished in brown. The hood and bumpers are customized versions of those found on the Wrangle Rubicon 10th Anniversary model, while the headlights and taillights are LEDs. Inside, the upscale feel is continued with dark saddle Katzkin leather seats and cooper accents throughout.

Jeep Wrangler SlimJeep-Wrangler-Slim-COncept.jpg

The Wrangler Slim dropped some weight, but still offers maximum performance. This concept keeps its full doors and a hard top roof, and gets its power from 3.6-liter V6. It sits on 17-inch beadlock wheels, finished with Rock Lobster rings, that compliment the Rock Lobster paint finish. Other performance mods include lightweight rock rails, a black grille, black hood decals, LED headlights, locking gas cap and Rubicon tires. On the inside, a CB radio is offered along with a hard-top headliner.
