Jeeps have come together once again for the 58th Annual Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, Utah. Over 20,000 Jeep fans tackle the desert trails together in their Wranglers, Gladiators, and even their classic Jeeps like the CJ-7. To celebrate this massive gathering of Jeepers, the off-roading brand makes sure to excite their fanbase with major news and the unveiling of awesome concepts through the help of the Jeep Performance Parts (JPP) arm of Mopar. There are some interesting designs this year and maybe even a hint of what’s to come from Jeep in the not-too-distant future. Check it all out below!

Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 Final Edition

Just some days prior to the Easter Jeep Safari, Jeep announced the 2024 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 Final Edition. The 470-horsepower 6.4L HEMI V8 totting Wrangler model has only been around since 2020, but its time is coming to an end with the industry’s focus on electrification. The Final Edition still carries that impressive powerplant under the hood and features all the Trail Rated goodies like heavy-duty wide track Dana 44 axles, but it gains some great additions for this sendoff version.

First, the 392 Final Edition features a half-inch suspension lift that pairs with the 35-inch BFGoodrich all-terrain tires to raise the ground clearance up to 11.6 inches and allows it to ford up to 34.5 inches of standing water. Jeep also installed heavy-duty rock sliders, an 8,000-pound-capacity Warn winch, a triple hoop grille guard, and includes an 83-piece tool kit. The 392 Final Edition also gets some unique appearance items like hood and fender decals, a specially monogrammed shifter medallion and swing gate plaque, and black Nappa leather-trimmed seats with Mayan Gold and Tupelo accenting.

Only 3,700 2024 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 Final Edition models will be made with a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $99,995 but expect that price to balloon on dealership lots.

Jeep fans at the 58th Annual Easter Jeep Safari were given a look at four exciting, one-of-a-kind Jeep concepts this year. Each of these concept vehicles showcase different ways in which Jeep owners can utilize the Jeep Performance Parts by Mopar catalogue to customize their own rides. Some of these Jeep concepts are practical, some are efficient, but all of them are awesome.

Jeep Low Down Concept

Jeep introduced a concept back in 2009 called the Lower Forty that featured a stock ride suspension Jeep Wrangler riding on 40-inch tires. Jeep has brough that idea back with their Jeep Low Down concept, but with a powerful twist. This modern take utilizes the Jeep Wrangler 392 as its base and gives it 42-inch BFGoodrich Krawler mud-terrain tires on 20-inch beadlock wheels riding on the stock suspension. All that tall rubber helps give the concept a low center of gravity while still maintaining trail ready approach and departure angles, breakover angle, and ground clearance.

To fit these massive wheels without raising the suspension, Jeep added custom high-clearance carbon fender flares. Other visual updates include 392 decals inside and out, a race-styled fuel filler door, and a custom carbon hood that features a “HEMI Under Glass” throwback with the see-through “power dome”. This low stanced, power Wrangler gives the iconic model an interesting look and continues to be a Trail Rated beast.

Jeep Willys Dispatcher Concept

Jeep throws out a nod to the post-war civilian Jeep with their Jeep Willys Dispatcher concept. This retrofuturism concept takes the hybrid powered Wrangler 4xe and gives it some nostalgic post-war era flare to look like the CJ-3A. The wheels are vintage-styled, cream-colored 16-inch steelies and the paint is a custom shade of Element 115 Green while the windshield header is black – similar to some of the CJ-3A models back in the day. The front bumper was given classic styling as well while carrying an 8274 Warn winch on top rather than integrated within the bumper like modern Jeeps.

Inside is upholstery that features distressed leather and houndstooth accenting. The headrests were removed to look like the low-back classic seats of the past and a JPP “bikini top” was added to let passengers inside enjoy the open-air feel while being protected from the elements. Jeep also included items like an onboard air compressor and JPP vinyl floor covering.

Jeep Gladiator Rubicon High Top Concept

The Wrangler wasn’t the only model getting a one-of-a-kind concept, the Jeep Gladiator pickup truck also got in on the fun with the High Top concept. This gladiator was specially designed with parts from JPP and other major off-road performance brands to make the ideal off-road truck. The High Top rides on 40-inch BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO3 tires wrapped around 18-inch KMC Grenade Crawl beadlock wheels. Dana 60 axles were installed front and rear with a 5.38:1 gear ratio.

This truck concept was also given an AccuAir adjustable air suspension to maneuver the truck in different positions while conquering the trails, a modified American Expedition Vehicles single hoop front bumper with an integrated Warn winch, and Rock Slide Engineering rock rail power steps to help with undercarriage protection and ease of entry. DECKED also was featured in this Gladiator’s rear with their truck bed storage system which adds dual sliding drawers for cargo organization.

Finishing off this High Top Concept were custom quilted and perforated tan and black Alea leather upholstered seating, JPP sun bonnet, JPP pedal kit, JPP door sill guards, JPP all-weather floor mats, and a retrotastic Ginger Snap metallic and black two-tone paintjob. It may only be carrying the 3.6L Pentastar V6, but this Gladiator is ready for some serious off-roading.

Jeep Vacationeer Concept

Jeep also introduced the Vacationeer concept for those that want a luxurious overlanding experience with some nostalgic style. They took the Jeep Wagonneer and made a Moab conquering full-sized SUV that can also work as an ideal camping spot under the desert sky. 35-inch BFGoodrich mud-terrain tires were installed onto 18-inch bead grip 701 Method racing wheels which helped give the Vacationeer an added 1.5-inch lift. This wheel setup required larger wheel openings, so they were cut and given custom flare extensions to finish the look.

To further protect the adventure vehicle from the harsh rocks out on the trail, front and rear skid plates were added. Jeep also included a Warn winch to help this SUV pull itself out of sticky situations. If you’re travelling at night, three 11-inch TYRI LED lights were installed onto the white, Rhino-lined roof.

Speaking of that roof, you’ll notice the integrated, pop-up Skyloft rooftop tent. While Skyloft products normally must be entered by climbing onto the roof itself, the Vacationeer actually features a pass-thru roof entrance built into the Wagoneer’s roof for ease of access. The second- and third-row seats were removed in favor of a bed-lined cargo space and a slide out step that can also be used as a makeshift table.

The visual design inside and out of the Vactioneer take on some vintage elements. The exterior features a spearmint painted body with a white roof and white wheels. It also has woodgrain accents running along the sides of the body to pay homage to the original woody Wagoneer models. Inside there is a tan and black interior that features wood grain and classic plaid trimming. Even the Skyloft above continues this vintage aesthetic with its matching plaid bedding.

A Glimpse of Jeep’s Retro Inspired Trims?

There’s a lot of throwbacks for this year’s Easter Jeep Safari concepts and some of them could hit production in some fashion. It feels like Jeep may be gauging their fans’ interest with these throwback colorways before they actually end up adding them to their lineups. The Ford Bronco and Bronco Sport already introduced vintage colorways last year, so Jeep may be trying to introduce their own versions. As for these concepts’ technical configurations though, they’ll more than likely have to be recreated by Jeep owners through the JPP catalog and put together themselves.
