For a few other minor touches, Jeep applied a custom hood graphic, roof basket, rock rails, side stripes, and tinted head and tail lamps, too. All of it strikes a simple, yet well-stated look against the green exterior hue and orange tow hooks.

With a bushel of Mopar and Jeep performance parts, the Switchback concept is supposed to represent the “ultimate in off-road performance.” A front and rear Dana 44 axle, four-inch lift with reservoir Fox shocks, and heavy-duty differential covers certainly make the case for Jeep’s statement. Like the other concepts, BFGoodrich mud-terrain KM2 tires can be found at each corner of the concept, measuring 37 inches.

If the Jeep CJ66 concept looks familiar, it’s because Jeep debuted this particular creation at the 2016 SEMA Show. Nonetheless, it’s still one beast of a creation. The frame is from a Wrangler TJ, while the body is all Wrangler CJ. Modern Wrangler JK elements and power from a 345 Hemi crate engine create Jeep’s very own resto-mod.
Jeep Luminator for Moab Easter Jeep Safari, 2017Enlarge Photo
The Jeep Luminator concept is all about producing illumination, as the name suggests. Jeep jointly developed the lighting features found on the Luminator with Magneti Marelli, which can be found on nearly every portion of the concept vehicle.
The most innovative lighting feature is the Luminator’s scanning LED light bar, which features active spot and dynamic following tech. At the rear, a center high-mount stop light also provides a scouting and trail lamp with four different colored LEDs. Red will illuminate when stopped, amber at 1-3 mph, green at 3-25 mph, or flood lighting can be activated, which shines white. There’s even a roof-mounted solar panel to power an inverter with a landing pad for drones.
Each concept will make its debut in the flesh on April 8, 2017, on Moab’s famous trails.
