Jeep Trailstorm: 2016 Moab concept

← Jeep Trailcat • Jeep Crew Chief 715→

This Jeep Wrangler “concept” — or, more accurately, a show-off platform for Mopar and Jeep Performance Parts — has 17-inch off-road wheels in 37-inch tires, a two inch lift kit with Fox shocks, a winch, Dana 44 front and rear axles, half doors, and a bedlined interior.

Trailstorm

Mopar added a winch guard, satin black grille, LED headlights and fog lights, high top fenders, power-dome vented hood, off-road rock rails, the Big Brake Kit, a nonproduction fast-back soft top, tail light guards, and a Mopar fuel filler door.

The Trailstorm also has a steel front and rear Rubicon bumper and a tire carrier, and is wrapped in camouflage suited to the Utah desert. Inside are the usual Katzkin seat covers and Mopar all-weather floor mats; it has the stock manual-transmission powertrain.

venomConcept cars are often made so a car’s feel can be evaluated, problems can be foreseen, and reactions of the public can be judged. Some concepts test specific ideas, colors, controls, or materials — either subtle or out of proportion, to hide what’s being tested. Some are created to help designers think “out of the box.” The Challenger, Prowler, PT Cruiser, and Viper were all tested as production-based concepts dressed up to hide the production intent.
