The annual Moab Easter Jeep Safari is almost upon us and on this occasion, as per tradition, Jeep has come up with a number of really cool concepts that have no real purpose besides celebrating the event. This year’s Jeep Moab concepts are a diverse bunch, but they are designed with little else besides “fin” in mind.
So let’s not beat around bush and get to know the biggest highlights of 2017 Moab Easter Jeep Safari, beginning with…
Jeep Grand One
The main features of blast from the past include 18-inch lace-style wheels, high-clearance fender flares, extended wheelbase, trimmed fascias and a subtle wood grain treatment in the style of 1993 ZJ, 33-inch BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain KM2 tires, 90’s inspired interior, and a V8 engine.
The highlights of the 2017 Jeep Safari include a translucent hard-top roof panel, two-level aluminum cargo rack with incorporated drone, a raked windshield, boatsided rocker panels, removable doors, two rear bucket seats rotated outboard, front and rear Dana 44 axle equipped with selectable differential lockers and 2-inch lift, 35-inch BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain KM2 tires and a Pentastar V6.
