The Jeep Shortcut is a recreation of the long-running Jeep CJ-5, converted from a Wrangler with a chop and a custom grille, hood, tailgate, wheel flares, and bumpers. A modified exhaust, 17-inch red steel wheels, and 35-inch BF-Goodrich Mud-Terrain T/A KM2 tires help the Jeep Shortcut maintain the look of an icon. It has front and rear Dana 44 axles and a two inch lift kit with Fox shocks; the body length was cut by a full foot.

Inside are low-back leather bucket seats with plaid inserts, a red ball shifter handle, four-point safety cage, and all-weather mats; the standard Wrangler powertrain was kept.

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.
