The annual Moab Easter Jeep safari is right around the corner and as always, the company has creation not one but a bunch of concepts specifically for the event.
And Jeep isn’t creating mere showcars, these are designed and built to go along the trail – meaning there’s an ample effort under way at the factory ahead of each of the annual events. And now we get to catch a glimpse of the ton of work that was needed for some of this year’s novelties. The Fiat Chrysler Automobiles subsidiary has decided to share the efforts that were needed to create just two of them – there were seven in total – the Safari and Quicksand.
The Safari started life as a basically stripped Wrangler Unlimited, with extensive modifications needed to carry the team of outward visibility when in the wilderness. A translucent hardtop and “windoors” that mix aluminum and clear vinyl help you witness every wildlife occurrence on the trail.
Meanwhile, the Quicksand concept was built to conquer the dunes – as the name implies. The team actually started with a bare body shell – it comes with a new roll cage, fuel tank, and the meaty 6.4-liter V8. The 51st Jeep Easter Safari will hit the trails around Moab, Utah, on April 8. All seven of the concepts will be there to celebrate the event.
