|Jeep is pitting the new Wrangler Red Rock Concept with Mopar and Jeep Performance Parts just for the SEMA Show in Vegas. The Jeep Wrangler Red Rock Concept is limited to only 50 units and pays homage to upcoming 50th Moab Easter Jeep Safari.|
The Jeep Wrangler Red Rock Concept pays tribute to the Red Rock 4-Wheelers off-road club that hosts the annual Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, Utah. For 2016, the Red Rock 4-Wheelers celebrate the 50th annual Easter Jeep Safari, which started in 1967 with an off-road drive along the “Behind the Rocks Trail.”
The Jeep Wrangler Red Rock concept is the precursor to the Wrangler Red Rock special-edition version, to be produced next year. The production variant will feature some of the contents shown on the Red Rock Concept. Select items showcased on the Concept will be available as aftermarket parts from Mopar. Since 2002, Jeep and Mopar have collaborated on more than 50 unique concept vehicles for enthusiasts.
The Jeep Wrangler Red Rock concept is based on a Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon Hard Rock and features; body-colored front grille with black grille throats and headlight accents, a power dome vented hood with decals, commemorative Red Rock badge with low gloss Jeep badge, new premium off-road rock rails, front and rear red tow hooks and low gloss Granite Crystal off-road bumpers. Pertinent highlights for the concept also include 17-inch beadlock wheels in low gloss black, LED headlights, fog lights, aftermarket Warn Rubicon winch, front and rear differential covers, and a reinforced swing gate and wheel mount.
In addition, the Wrangler Red Rock concept includes next-generation Dana 44 solid front and rear axles and a Rock-Trac transfer case with a 4.10 axle ratio. Completing the package for the Wrangler concept are two-inch lift, as well as low-gloss Granite Crystal bead lock rings, wrapped in rugged 35-inch BFG all-terrain tyres.
Inside, the Wrangler Red Rock concept takes up Amaretto Brown Katzkin leather seats with silver accent stitching, a “Red
Rock” embroidered seat back, a serialized “Red Rock” grab handle plaque and Jeep-branded CB radio.
Since it’s based off of the Wrangler Rubicon Hard Rock, the Red Rock Concept is equipped with Tru-Lok electronic locking
differentials, the Rock-Trac transfer case and a 4:1 low-range ratio. A 73.1:1 crawl ratio with the manual transmission enables the Red Rock Concept to scale obstacles others just dream about.
