The Jeep Compass Canyon, a project based on a new 2011 model that features a Freedom Drive II drivetrain, will be shown at the 2011 Moab Easter Jeep Safari that opens on April 16. This Jeep Compass is one of six new customized vehicles that Jeep intended for this event.

For the month of April, Chrysler has been displaying customized off-road concept vehicles at the Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, Utah. And for this year, Chrysler is bringing several Jeep and Ram vehicles to Moab this year. But so far, only sketches of two Jeep Wrangler-based concepts have been released. The first concept is named Renegade.
It appears to be based on the 1971 CJ-5 Renegade 1 model and has been fitted with parts from Mopar’s aftermarket catalog. The Renegade has been given a paint job that features a gold-on-black paint scheme. It also has a suspension lift and a bigger wheel/tire package (including matching gold five-spoke aluminum wheels) as well as rock rails and a front brush bar.
The concept seems to have been installed with the American Expedition Vehicles’ muscular heat reduction hood, making it highly possible that the show vehicle will be powered by something more potent than the standard 3.8-liter V-6. It’s likely that this vehicle will be given a Hemi V-8 engine (an improved conversion AEV).Read the entire article Chrysler previews 2 Jeep Wrangler-based concepts set for Easter Jeep Safari
Chrysler's Mopar accessories division has five new concepts in store for fans who are set to attend the Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, Utah. This division usually uses an off-road theme for its show cars. These concept renderings are all that's available for enthusiasts to scrutinize as the details about the cars have not yet been announced.
The Jeep J7 is based on the four-door Wrangler Unlimited and its styling is intended to resemble the military-spec J8 offered abroad.
Built "for serious off-road duty," the two-door Wrangler Trail Boss has the appearance of a Rubicon equipped with giant wheels and tires and a sizable suspension lift. Its wheel/tire treatment is identical to that on the modified Ram Power Wagon, but it's apparent that the car is retro-inspired.Read the entire article Mopar releases first sketches for the 44th Annual Easter Jeep Safari
