Jeep has officially unveiled their concepts for the 2012 Moab Easter Jeep Safari.
First up, the Grand Cherokee Trailhawk concept features a stone white exterior with red and mineral gray accents. There's also rock rails, front / rear tow hooks, tinted headlights and 18-inch alloy wheels with Goodyear Wrangler SilentArmor tires.
Moving on, the Wrangler Apache has a 6.4-liter HEMI V8 engine which produces approximately 470 hp (350 kW / 477 PS) and 470 lb-ft (637 Nm) of torque. It also has a Stinger front bumper, a 4.5-inch lift kit, a Warn winch and Mopar Pro 60 front and rear axles. While the model isn't headed for production, the engine conversion kit will be available this summer.
The Mighty FC concept recalls the Forward Control model that was built between 1956 and 1965. It is based on the Wrangler Rubicon and incorporates custom components and parts from the Mopar JK-8 conversion kit. Highlights include Katzkin leather seats, an eight foot cargo bed and 17-inch beadlock wheels with 40-inch off-road tires.
On the other hand, the J-12 concept draws inspiration from the 1960's Gladiator. It's essentially an extended JK-8 pickup with a unique front fascia, restyled headlights and a 3-inch lift kit.
Next up, the Wrangler Traildozer concept was co-developed with American Expedition Vehicles. It features a 6.4-liter HEMI V8 engine and electronically-locking Dana 44 axles with 4:10 gearing. There's also heavy-duty bumpers, a Warn winch and 37-inch Mickey Thompson Baja Claw tires.
Lastly, the Mopar-ized Jeep Wrangler Rubicon has off-road bumpers, a Warn winch and a 2-inch lift kit. Other goodies include electronically-locking axles, rocker bars and 35-inch Goodyear tires.
