2014 Easter Jeep Safari: Wrangler Level Red Concept handles challenging off-road terrain

Article by Christian Andrei, on April 11, 2014

Ok, we saw the Cherokee Dakar Concept, now its time to take a closer look at the Jeep Wrangler Level Red Concept that will also make its debut at the 2014 Moab Jeep Easter Safari. Apparently, the ‘Level Red’ designation refers to the highest level of difficulty an off-road trail and as a result, the concept comes well-equipped to handle challenging off-road terrain, riding high on a Jeep Performance Parts 2-inch lift kit.

Found on the front and rear, the Jeep Performance Parts Dana 44 crate axles feature a 4:10 ratio, while the Jeep Performance Parts Rock-Trac transfer case provides a 4:1 low range that makes navigating obstacles much easier. Under the hood, there is a 3.6-liter engine bolted to a six-speed manual transmission, improved with a cold-air intake and low-restriction exhaust system.

Jeep says that the Wrangler Level Red’s crawl ratio is 73:1. The Wrangler Level Red Concept features a Pitch Black exterior, complemented by a TorRed prototype graphic stripe that runs along the top of the hood near the bottom of the windshield and halfway down the body sides.

“Rubicon 10th Anniversary” bumpers protect the front and rear, while the prototype black “Aero” bumper ends and an under-bumper skid plate make sure they keep you safe. Wrangler Level Red is fitted with prototype 17 x 8-inch beadlock-capable wheels accented with TorRed color on the beadlock ring.

The wheels are wrapped in 35-inch BFGoodrich Mud Terrain tires, available through the Mopar Tireworks program. A Mopar half-door kit is found on the new Wrangler Level Red Concept, while additional exterior upgrades include a prototype Jeep Performance Parts tire carrier, a locking gas cap, a hood prop kit and Jeep Performance Parts rock rails.

Plenty of sport badges for each of the five trails in Moab recognized by the Jeep brand as “Badge of Honor” trails are found on the sides. Inside, the Wrangler Level Red features the same theme found on the exterior, which means we can spot Tuscany Katzkin leather seats with red stitching, Flame Red seat belt webbing, HVAC rings painted with TorRed inserts and red accents on the roll bar padding in the rear.

Furthermore, the interior offers a a gloss black look on the steering wheel spokes and dash grab handle. Other goodies included are the a prototype Jeep Cargo Management System (JCMS) with a tow-strap bag and first aid bag on the rear swing gate, all-weather floor mats, grab handles, and a lockable storage bin under the seat.

Jeep Wrangler Level Red is a nod to the most challenging off-road trails

The Wrangler Level Red, which refers to the highest level of difficulty an off-road trail can be designated, comes well-equipped to handle challenging off-road terrain, riding high on a Jeep Performance Parts 2-inch lift kit. Jeep Performance Parts Dana 44 crate axles on the front and rear feature a 4:10 ratio. The Jeep Performance Parts Rock-Trac transfer case provides a 4:1 low range to make navigating obstacles much easier. The 3.6-liter engine with a six-speed manual transmission is improved through a cold-air intake and low-restriction exhaust system. Wrangler Level Red's crawl ratio is 73:1.

The sleek Pitch Black exterior of Wrangler Level Red is decorated by a TorRed prototype graphic stripe that runs along the top of the hood near the bottom of the windshield and halfway down the body sides. The front and rear of the vehicle are well-guarded by "Rubicon 10th Anniversary" bumpers, with prototype black "Aero" bumper ends and an under-bumper skid plate providing more protection. Wrangler Level Red rides on prototype 17 x 8-inch beadlock-capable wheels, accented with TorRed color on the beadlock ring. The wheels carry aggressive 35-inch BFGoodrich Mud Terrain tires, available through the Mopar Tireworks program.

Jeep Wrangler Level Red is modified with a Mopar half-door kit, and additional exterior upgrades include a prototype Jeep Performance Parts tire carrier, a locking gas cap, a hood prop kit and Jeep Performance Parts rock rails. Wrangler Level Red also sports badges for each of the five trails in Moab recognized by the Jeep brand as "Badge of Honor" trails. (Through the Jeep brand's Badge of Honor program, Jeep vehicle owners can earn special vehicle badges once they conquer any of more than 30 approved, high-profile trails across the United States.)

The interior of Wrangler Level Red complements the feel of the exterior. The Tuscany Katzkin leather seats are embellished with red stitching, which also is featured on the arm rest. Flame Red color brings alive the seat belt webbing, while HVAC rings are painted with TorRed inserts and roll bar padding in the rear also features red accents. The interior is further upgraded with a gloss black look on the steering wheel spokes and dash grab handle. Additional accessories include a prototype Jeep Cargo Management System (JCMS) with a tow-strap bag and first aid bag on the rear swing gate, all-weather floor mats, grab handles, and a lockable storage bin under the seat.
