Jeep and Mopar Partner to Make Wrangler Red Rock Concept
The Jeep Wrangler Red Rock Concept Looks Rough And Ready!
Updated October 1, 2018
In honor of Red Rock 4-Wheelers Off Road Club’s upcoming 50th Annual Easter Jeep Safari, Jeep® and Mopar have collaborated to create the Red Rock Concept Wrangler, which made its first appearance at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas, Nevada last November. Fifty versions of the concept will be produced in 2016
The car is an example of customizing a production Jeep Wrangler with aftermarket performance parts from Mopar.
The concept is based on a Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon Hard Rock and includes the next-generation Dana 44 solid front and rear axles, a Rock-Trac® transfer case with 4.10 axle ratio, a power dome vented hood, new premium off-road rock rails, and front and rear red two hooks.
In addition, the vehicle includes a commemorative Red Rock badge and Red Rock hood decal, low gloss Jeep badge, low gloss Granite Crystal off-road bumpers, and a body-color grille with low-gloss black grille throats and headlamp accents.
The standard features of the Wrangler Rubicon Hard Rock that remain in the concept include Tru-Lok® electronic locking differentials, the Rock-Trac® transfer case, a 4:1 low-range ratio and a 73.1:1 crawl ratio. The low range and crawl ratio along with the manual transmission ensures that the Red Rock Concept can climb obstructions that no other four-wheeler can tackle. Illumination is provided by LED headlamps and fog lights.
Built with the purpose of overcoming rough terrain, this Jeep includes a luxury interior featuring leather seats with silver accented stitching and the Red Rock Club’s logo embroidered into the seat back. The 50th Anniversary Easter Jeep Safari is also celebrated by a serialized Red Rock logo on a grab handle plaque. A Jeep branded CB radio assures communications with all the good buddies either on the freeway or churning up the rough terrain.
To further enhance the Jeep’s off road capabilities there are a 2-inch lift kit, 17-inch low gloss black, bead lock rings and low-gloss Granite Crystal wheels hosting rugged 35-inch BFG K02 all-terrain tires.
Since 2002 Jeep and Mopar have partnered to create more than 50 distinctive concept vehicles for fans that attend the popular Easter Jeep Safari event. Select items used to enhance the Red Rock Concept will be available to the aftermarket from Mopar.
