It’s always our go to hall and exhibit isn’t it? I have to say I am the biggest fan, or maybe I’m just partial to Jeeps or the new TRX? Mopar, the parts, service, and customer care division for the U.S. brands now under the Stellantis umbrella—has revealed several concepts at this years show. We’ve already shown you the three-row Jeep Gladiator Overlook, and here’s what else Mopar has in store: a Dodge, two Rams, and three more Jeep concepts for the SEMA Show.

The Jeep Wrangler 4xe concept showcases how passionate off-roaders can build upon the award-winning plug-in hybrid electric vehicle with factory-backed parts and accessories from Jeep Performance Parts (JPP).
Starting with the industry-first JPP 2-inch lift kit with FOX shocks specifically tuned for the new Wrangler 4xe, the Wrangler 4xe concept rides on  Beadlock-capable Wheels with functional Beadlock Rings, mounted with BFGoodrich KM3 37-inch tires. Custom underbody rock lights illuminate the ground below at all four corners so the driver can see and avoid damage from rocks and debris. A  steel bumper features a custom single-hoop winch protector with an attached LED light just above a Warn winch and the Gorilla Glass windshield offers up to three times the strength of a stock windshield. In the rear, a JPP Swing Gate Hinge Reinforcement allows a full-size spare wheel and tire to be mounted on the swing gate and a JPP Center High-Mount Stop Lamp Relocation Kit provides a third brake light in the center of the spare tire. Striking Mopar Blue Katzkin leather seats with tungsten stitching sets off the whole 4xe interior,  three-piece JPP vinyl floor, featuring four drain plugs for easy cleaning. Inside the tailgate, a custom trail-rail management system features multi-position cargo loops to safely secure and carry gear while a JPP swing-gate flip-down table adds a useful flat surface. A custom on-board compressor is also integrated into the tailgate for any air inflation needs. The whole look of this 4xe concept is very striking to look at!

The Jeep Wrangler Overlook concept stretches a four-door Wrangler Sahara into a three-row off-roader loaded with luxury touches and a wide array of products from the JPP portfolio. The cabin of the Sahara Bronze Jeep Overlook concept extends an additional 12 inches to hold a third row of seats. The custom modular roofline is 5 inches taller than standard for more interior headroom. Outdoor viewing is enhanced with dual side and three front-facing windows above the second and third rows. A custom removable one-piece Freedom Top with flip-up glass sunroof panel opens the view over the driver and front passenger.

The Kaiser Jeep M725 concept is a vintage 1967 Kaiser Jeep M725 military ambulance transformed for duty as an ultimate off-road support machine and rolling mascot for JPP. Painted Desert Tan, the concept rides on 20-by-12-inch, eight-lug Black Rhino Armory wheels that are wrapped with 40-inch tires.  fenders. The Kaiser Jeep M725 is unlike any other 4×4 “go anywhere” style of vehicle found on the trails or streets. The custom-designed roof panel over the cargo area can raise 16 inches, creating enough room for occupants to stand while retrieving supplies or serving food and refreshments from the open driver’s side rear panel. The off-road capability of the Kaiser Jeep M725 is enhanced by reinforcing the original frame and replacing the original leaf springs with a heavy-duty link/coil suspension system. Under the hood sits a Mopar 392 Crate HEMI® V-8 engine linked to a vintage TorqueFlite 727 automatic transmission. This combination delivers 485 horsepower and 475 lb.-ft. of torque. Inside, low-back Jeep Wrangler seats are wrapped in tan canvas. The driver control center includes a custom-built steering wheel and column, and instrument panel equipped with modern gauges and a backup camera display screen. A specially designed data plaque, showing the unique specifications of the Kaiser Jeep M725, mounts on the dashboard. The custom center console, crafted from a repurposed ammunition box, carries the transmission and transfer case shifters. The vehicle floor is coated with bedliner material for enhanced grip and durability. This is easily one of my favorite concepts for and over-landing adventure.
