Jeep and Mopar Reveal Six New Concepts for This Year’s Moab Easter Jeep Safari
Jeep Wrangler Sand Trooper II
There’s always that one guy who has to outdo everyone else, and this is his Jeep. The sequel to the first Sand Trooper that made its debut at SEMA in 2012, the Sand Trooper II is just a bit more insane. The 375-hp, 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 sends its whomping 400 lb-ft of torque to a set of eight-lug portal axles and on out to 42-inch tires mounted to Jeep Performance Parts prototype forged beadlock wheels, ensuring there will be no shortage of twist to spin sand into the faces of your fellow Jeepers.
Mopar exterior tweaks include a satin-black grille, a hood lock, front and rear half-door and window kits, front and rear off-road “Shorty” modified bumpers, a Warn winch, Mopar flat fenders, rock rails, a vented hood, LED off-road lights and headlamps, a Rubicon 10th Anniversary swing-away rear tire carrier, a trailer-tow hitch receiver, black taillamp guards and locking fuel door, and a Jeep Performance Parts badge.
The interior features a backup camera, black sill guards, and a bevy of locking storage to hide your stuff in, including under-seat and console bins, a below-floor storage box, and trunk storage box. Sure, it’s bad-ass, you just have to ask yourself if you want to be that guy on the trails this year.
