Jeep and Mopar wow 4x4 fans with 7 in­cred­i­ble new ve­hi­cles

IT’S BE­COME A TRA­DI­TION THAT Jeep and Mopar in­vade the town of Moab, Utah, with a col­lec­tion of in­cred­i­ble con­cept ve­hi­cles dur­ing the an­nual Easter Jeep Safari event.

Jeep and Mopar have trot­ted out some amaz­ing con­cepts over the years. Who can for­get 2012 and the Mighty FC, which was a nod to the Jeep For­ward Con­trol? In 2010, fans were wowed by the gritty Nuk­izer 715 that paid homage to the Kaiser M715. In 2011, one of the stand­outs was the Pork Chop, which had 850 pounds chopped from its weight. And in 2009, a con­cept de­buted that is still talked about to­day—the Lower Forty Wran­gler, which was shod with 40-inch tires and no sus­pen­sion lift.

For 2018, Jeep and Mopar un­veiled seven no­tably dif­fer­ent ve­hi­cles. They ranged from an im­pec­ca­bly re­stored and mod­i­fied Wagoneer to a desert rac­ing– in­spired ma­chine that worked as good as it looked.

Over the next few pages you can read about th­ese seven 4x4s, and in­cluded are lit­tle-known facts about this year’s batch of Jeep and Mopar con­cepts. We’ve also in­cluded our opin­ions on th­ese rigs, be­cause frankly, we al­ways have an opin­ion. But that’s not all. There are many more pho­tos of th­ese rigs, as well as video, at four­wheeler.com!
