Every year, Jeep rolls out a number of crazy concepts for its trip to Moab, Utah. This year is no exception, with everything from forward-cab trucks to a Hellcat-powered Wrangler.
The Jeep Shortcut is a modern take on the old-school CJ-5.
It's packing a shortened body, wheel flares, custom chrome bumpers and 17-inch red steel wheels, to name a few parts. The body's been shortened by more than 2 feet overall.
All you need to know about the interior is that it has red leather seats with plaid inserts. And why, exactly, aren't these available for the Wrangler?
The Trailstorm is billed as the ultimate off-road Jeep, with plenty of room for things like gear and fuel.
Need more visibility? That shouldn't be a problem when you've got half doors all around.
This one isn't really a throwback -- instead, it's just meant as an aggrandized expression of the Renegade's off-road capabilities.
The biggest change, aside from a handful of off-the-shelf Mopar parts, is a 2-inch lift.
While you might think that this is an ordinary 1960 Jeep forward-cab truck, it's actually resting atop a 2005 Jeep Wrangler chassis.
The chassis has been modified to work with a Dana 44 front axle and a Dana 60 rear axle.
The Crew Chief 715 was built to honor Jeep's history with military service vehicles.
That shows in its styling, which includes steel front and rear bumpers, 20-inch beadlock wheels and 40-inch military tires.
Backing that style up is plenty of capability, thanks to Dana 60 axles, a powerful winch, and remote reservoir shocks.
Yes, this is a Hellcat-powered Jeep Wrangler.
To get the motor to fit, Jeep had to extend the wheelbase by a foot. It also chopped the windshield 2 inches for a more aggressive look.
Its six-speed manual transmission features a custom ball knob with a Hellcat logo -- naturally.
The Comanche hearkens back to a time when Jeep built pickups. Its paint color is called "Beige Against the Machine."
The wheelbase has been stretched 6 inches to make room for the 5-foot bed out back. Like the other Renegade-based concepts here, this one's packing a 2-inch lift.
