Every year, the Red Rock 4-Wheelers club hosts the Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, Utah, a celebration of all things Jeep where the carmaker typically unveils a series of concept vehicles. With the 50th anniversary of the Easter Jeep Safari coming up, Jeep decided to tip its hat to the Red Rock 4-Wheelers with a modified Wrangler concept for this week's 2015 SEMA show.
The Jeep Wrangler Red Rock concept is based on the Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon Hard Rock and features the typically show-vehicle mix of custom paint and interior trim, upgraded components and accessories.The Red Rock rides on "next-generation" Dana 44 solid front and rear axles, with electronic locking differentials and a Rock-Trac transfer case sporting a 4:1 low range. The manual-transmission-equipped Jeep also has a 73.1:1 crawl ratio for getting over tough obstacles.
Functional exterior changes include a 2.0-inch lift, 17-inch beadlock wheels wrapped in 35-inch BF Goodrich K02 tires, LED headlights and fog lights, Warn winch, front and rear differential covers, and a reinforced tailgate and spare tire carrier. The concept also sports rock rails, a power dome hood and some Red Rock badging. Naturally, the exterior is painted red, with red tow hooks, Granite Crystal bumpers, and some gloss black detailing.
On the inside, the Red Rock concept features Amaretto Brown Katzkin leather seats with silver accent stitching, and plenty of "Red Rock" callouts. There's also a CB radio.
Unlike many SEMA show vehicles, you may actually be able to buy the Red Rock, or at least something like it. Jeep says the concept previews a special edition model that will go on sale next year, with production limited to just 50 units. Some of the concept's parts will also be offered as standalone items through Mopar.
The Jeep Wrangler Red Rock concept shares the SEMA show floor with several other Fiat Chrysler Automobiles models, including the Dodge Dart GLH concept and an all-wheel drive Dodge Challenger. For full coverage, head over to Motor Authority's dedicated hub.
