Moparized Renegades heading to Detroit

Jeep continues to test the water with a pair of pickup concepts

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.

Could Jeep be preparing for a supra-Rubicon Wrangler?

Prior to 2003, there were few factory options available that would increase the offroad ability of your YJ or TJ Wrangler.

Jeep Wrangler Call of Duty Special Edition Re-Enlists for 2012

Less than two days after posting here that Jeep had yet to confirm if the Call of Duty or Mojave special editions would continue for 2012; Jeep released information confirming a 2012 Call of Duty: MW3 Special Edition Wrangler.  It is still unknown if Jeep will be sending me a 2012 Crush Orange Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon with a black hard top, 6 speed manual trans, leather, and all the geeky navigation and phone connectivity do-dads for a long term (permanent) performance evaluation.  (I’ll wait for them to call me over the weekend, to discuss delivery.)
