The Jeep J-12 concept is essentially an extended version of Mopar’s recently introduced JK-8 pickup conversion kit for the Jeep Wrangler. The rear of the Wrangler Unlimited’s frame was extended 18 inches, allowing the spare tire to be relocated under the bed floor and making the cargo box a full six feet in length. A custom hood and front fender set was created as a nod to aficionados of the beloved Jeep Gladiator series trucks. More photos/info: Jeep J12

Mopar offers more than 250 accessories for the 2012 Jeep Wrangler, and built a vehicle for Moab that showcases many of them.
Mopar used the Wrangler Rubicon model as the starting point. Off-road enhancements from Mopar include a two-inch performance lift kit, 35-inch Goodyear Wrangler tires mounted on Classic five-hole wheels, front and rear off-road bumpers, a Warn 9.5ti XP winch, Mopar rock rails, Kicker dash 6.5-inch two-way speakers, Mopar all-weather mats and more.
Some prototype Mopar accessories debuting on this vehicle are a locking center console box, a rear cargo cubby cover, new windshield-mounted LED lamps, a new hard-top headliner and an “Add-A-Trunk” partition that creates secure storage space in the cargo area.
The Mopar Accessorized 2012 Jeep Wrangler includes Rubicon-standard Dana 44 front and rear axles with electric lockers, which are also available in kit form from Mopar.
Jeep® and Mopar are once again launching concept Jeeps for the 46th annual Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, Utah. Three previews have been unveiled, covering the Jeep Mighty FC concept, Jeep J-12 concept, and the Jeep Wrangler Apache. The Easter Jeep Safari will take place in Moab from March 31 to April 8.
Pietro Gorlier, President and CEO of Mopar, wrote, “Mopar is pushing the envelope in this arena by offering our customers new Pro 60 portal axles and a new HEMI conversion kit, which we will showcase in these new vehicles. Jeep and Mopar engineers will work together in a new Mopar off-road division to create “Jeep Authentic Parts and Accessories,” designed, built, and quality-tested to meet strict specifications. The portal axles, at over $10,000 each, provide a substantial lift in ground clearance without lifting the suspension too far. The Hemi kit gives owners a way to get the 470 horsepower 6.4 liter Hemi (with VVT) into the Wrangler, connected to a five-speed automatic; support for the six-speed manual is coming.
