Jeep Wrangler Flattop: 2013 Moab concept

← Jeep Sand Trooper II • Jeep Wrangler Slim →

The Jeep Wrangler Flattop’s styled and refined body and interior belie its off-road capability. Jeep designers took special care to give the Wrangler Flattop an upscale appearance inside and out, but bolted some of the most hard-core off-road gear available to Flattop’s chassis.

Featuring a custom one-piece, windowless hard top, the body is finished in a metallic sandstone with copper and brown accents. The top and windshield were chopped two inches, and the b-pillar was removed creating a massive opening from front to rear. The door and hood hinges, tow hooks, grille slats and headlamp surrounds are finished in a copper tone, and the bumpers, side rails, side mirrors and hood decal are dark brown. Bumpers and the hood are from the Wrangle Rubicon 10th Anniversary. Custom high line fender flares, Truck-Lite LED headlamps, LED rear taillamps and side markers, a massive Warn Zeon winch and TeraFlex spare tire carrier round off the exterior enhancements.

The interior features dark saddle Katzkin leather seating, copper accents on the steering wheel spokes, vent rings and passenger grab handle and Mopar slush mats.

Underneath is a Mopar cold-air intake and exhaust kit, aluminum five-spoke wheels that carry 37-inch Mickey Thompson off-road tires, DynaTrac Pro Rock 44 front and Dana 60 rear axles with ARB air lockers and TeraFlex sway bars, and Full-Traction control arms, bolted to King shocks with pneumatic bump stops.

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.
