“It’s truly a labor of love for the Jeep team to develop exciting, capable concept vehicles each year for Moab and the Easter Jeep Safari,” said Mike Manley, Head of Jeep Brand – FCA Global.
It’s been two years since the Jeep design team gave us the last pair of true concept vehicles for the Easter Jeep Safari – read about my thoughts on the J12 and Mighty FC. Last year’s lifted KL Cherokee Trailhawk was cool, but I’ve been yearning for an off the wall amazing vehicle like this year’s Chief concept. Continue reading
Every year the Jeep brand creates a group of heavily modified and fabricated custom vehicles for the Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, UT.
In addition to a trio of lifted Wranglers, Jeep and Mopar revealed two specially built Cherokees, and a Diesel Grand Cherokee today prior to shipping them out to Moab for the 48th annual Easter Jeep Safari. Continue reading
Here I was, minding my own business walking the dealer lot while my friends in the Baker service department changed the Patriot’s oil, when I spotted a military-like-tan JK on the lot. I had completely forgotten about the new color DUNE, but here it is.
Spring is in the air! And among many other things, that means Jeep’s yearly concept tease at the Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, Utah. The EJS has been on my bucket list for years, but for now, I’ll have to watch from afar and speculate on the images that trickle out over the next few weeks.
Jeep recently showed off the new Moab Edition Wrangler at the Paris Auto Show. It was also the first sighting of one of the new Wrangler colors for 2013, Rock Lobster. The pictures of Jeep’s new colors always look a bit different in person, but I hope this reddish-orange is close to the real deal.
Following a plethora of special edition Wranglers for 2012 – The Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, the Arctic Edition, Altitude Edition, and the barely mentioned Freedom Edition – Jeep is kicking off 2013 with yet another limited edition JK.

Around this time every year, Jeep reveals concept vehicles to showcase at the annual Easter Jeep Safari in Moab Utah. the EJS is most likely the largest single gathering of Jeep vehicles on the planet, and is certainly a great place for the Chrysler heads to acquire some customer feedback from the core of their customer base; the enthusiasts. This year, like the past few years, there is a nice mix of realistic production potentials, and outrageously awesome pipe-dream concepts. One trend we’ve seen over the last few years is the presence of Wrangler based pickup trucks – this year Jeep built two of them.
