Images of dusty, off-road adventures for Easter? You bet.

Easter conjures images of bunnies and colored eggs and baskets full of chocolate, unless you’re a Jeep fan. If you love all things Jeep, then it conjures images of dusty off-road adventures and cool concepts that will make you long to upgrade your car. The annual Easter Jeep Safari is held each year in Moab, Utah, and gives enthusiasts a chance to see some amazing concept vehicles and experience everything Jeep has to offer. This year’s slate of cars included:

  • Jeep Chief: inspired by the classic, original Cherokee, with a nod to the west coast surfer lifestyle
  • Jeep Staff Car: a salute to legendary Jeep military service vehicles
  • Jeep Wrangler Africa: the ultimate Wrangler for back-country and overland expeditions
  • Jeep Grand Cherokee Overlander: built to meet the demands of lengthy wilderness treks
  • Jeep Renegade Desert Hawk: newest Jeep SUV built for the ultimate desert adventure
  • Jeep Cherokee Canyon Trail: elevated capability with undercarriage armor and extra traction
  • Jeep Wrangler Red Rock Responder: crafted to master the harshest terrain and respond to off-road emergencies

The Jeep Safari isn’t a production vehicle but features can be added to your own Jeep.

The cars aren’t production vehicles, but a lot of the features on the cars can be purchased for your own Jeep. Each is a mix of production and prototype Jeep Performance Parts designed by Mopar. Things like lift kits, rock rails, and skid plates can take your already off-road worthy Jeep and make it even more ready for whatever obstacles you want to conquer on the weekends.

Take a look at this video from the event and see if it doesn’t make you long to turn off the road and onto the first trail you can find.
