Jeep’s New Concepts Include a Bitchin’ Rat Rod, a Safari-Ready Wrangler, and . . . a 1993 Grand Cherokee?

Having long ago transcended its humble beginning as a friendly, daylong event aimed at spreading the word about the trails and outdoor opportunities in and around the Moab, Utah, region, the Easter Jeep Safari is now revered as one of the premier Jeep and off-road events in the world. So powerful is the Safari’s draw that Jeep annually prepares a collection of concept vehicles specifically for the event. Whether nearly stock or inspired caricatures, all of the Jeep concepts share one endearing trait: They can wheel under their own power. That’s right, in the more than 15 years Jeep has been cooking up Easter Jeep specials, nearly every one gets some genuine rock time, in addition to looking cool and hinting at models and/or accessories to come.
