The 52nd annual Moab Easter Jeep Safari is almost upon us, which means we have a bunch of new concepts to enjoy
Every year, Jeep owners descend on the challenging trails of Moab, Utah for one big off-road festival. It’s called the Moab Safari, and it’s grown over the years into a huge nine-day event. Although it’s organised by the Red Rock 4-Wheelers club, there is a lot of involvement from Jeep itself.
It’s become a tradition for the manufacturer to bring along a range of concept vehicles made especially for the occasion, and this year – the Moab Safari’s 52nd running – is no different. Here’s what the company came up with for 2018
This one’s all about weight reduction, bro. We have a bonnet, high-clearance arches, a rear tub all made from carbonfibre, and a chassis cut down by 56cm. As well as dropping the weight figure further, the latter modification also gives better approach and departure angles.
You’ll also find beefy Dana axles front and rear, plus 18-inch wheels wrapped in chunky 35-inch BF Goodrich tyres. It’s powered by Jeep’s all-new 2.0-litre turbocharged inline-four.
