News: Jeep drops six Easter Jeep Safari Concepts


Jeep has released details on six new concepts the company crafted for this year’s Easter Jeep Safari boasting of a slew of off-road goodies, including tow hooks, aggressive Goodyear Wrangler rubber and a rear light bar.

a.    Mighty FC Concept

Engineers built the Mighty FC as a tribute to the Jeep Forward Control that was offered between 1956 and 1965.

Using a 2012 Wrangler Rubicon as a platform, the company stretched the wheelbase, stuck the cab ahead of the front axle and threw in a custom drop-side cargo box.

Underneath, the Mighty FC uses a set of Mopar eight-lug portal axles, which offer a surprising amount of ground clearance without having to resort to a lift.

The truck rolls on 40-inch tires, and King coil-over suspension.

b.    Jeep J-12 Concept

The Jeep J-12 Concept is equally delicious in its own right.

An extended version of the JK-8 pickup, the concept began life as a 2012 Wrangler Unlimited,

The frame has been stretched a total of 18 inches, a full six-foot bed added, custom hood and unique fenders.

c.    Jeep Wrangler Traildozer concept

The Wrangler Traildozer concept was built by partnering with the off-road gurus atAmerican Expedition Vehicles.

With a 470-horsepower 6.4-liter V8 and a Getrag six-speed manual gearbox, the machine has the go-bits to tackle any trail.

Dana 44 axles with electronic locking differentials at the front and rear are also part of the package.

d .  Wrangler Apache concept

The Wrangler Apache Concept gets its power from 470-horsepower 6.4-liter V8, though it uses a Mopar conversion kit for the swap.

With a beefy lift and 5.13 axles, the Apache should have no problem taking on the rocks of Moab or in our case, the Athi 4X4
