For the Sandstorm concept, Jeep looked at Baja desert racers for design inspiration.

On the outside, the Sandstorm gets a vented carbon fiber hood, high clearance fender flares and a cage with a rear mounted spare tire carrier.

The front axle has been pushed forward and features a four-link suspension and track bar.

Additional Baja-inspired touches include high tube bumpers and rock rails.

For a cleaner look, the rear doors were chopped.

A race-style fuel filler system is also a nod to Baja race vehicles.

For power, the Sandstorm uses a 6.4-liter V8, which is bolted to six-speed manual transmission.

A custom cage has been integrated into the Sandstorm's cabin.

To help navigate Baja, an off-road GPS navigation system has been installed.

Custom shocks provide the Sandstorm 14 inches of wheel travel in front and 18 inches out back.
