If there’s anything I learned from my time in Moab, Utah, it’s that the red-rock-enshrined town takes off-roading very, very seriously.
That love for 4x4ing will be on display next week at the 52nd Easter Jeep Safari, an annual event that brings off-roaders from all over the world for nine days of technical trail riding.
Keeping with tradition, Jeep has unveiled seven Easter-themed custom builds and concepts for the event, including the minty green throwback Wagoneer pictured above.
"Pushing the limit is something the Jeep brand is no stranger to” said Mike Manley, Head of Jeep Brand in a press release. "Every year, we look forward to introducing new concept vehicles and ideas to our enthusiasts. The Moab Easter Jeep Safari presents a unique and perfect opportunity to collect valuable insight from our most loyal customers."
The seven custom cars each have their twists and turns, from the Baja race-inspired Sandstorm, with its vented carbon fiber hood, to the Nacho Jeep, so named for its rare nacho-yellow colorway.
If we’re to name a darling of the bunch, it’d have to be the aforementioned Wagoneer, a heritage build updated with a reinforced frame, Dana 44 front and rear axles with lockers, four-link suspension with coilover springs and 17-inch steel wheels.
Hells’ Revenge doesn’t know what it’s got comin’.
