Jeep-concept teaser

by David Zatz on

teaserAftermarket supplier and  customizer Trail Concepts will be debuting a “Dual Sport 106 Concept” at this year’s Jeep event in Moab, where it will presumably compete for attention with a set of Jeep’s own concepts.

The actual vehicle will be available, according to spokesman Jason DeMonto, in late 2015 — unlike the typical Jeep Moab concept.  The concept Dual Sport 106 includes a ten-inch frame-and-body-and-hardtop stretch for a 106-inch wheelbase, with storage capacity similar to a 2004-2006 Unlimited. Mr. DeMonto said it would have better ride and handling than the current two-door Wrangler, and that a full rendering should be available next week.

The company’s web site claims that the Dual Sport Jeeps (two of which are already available) “give you the most capable Jeep Wrangler, whether you’re rock crawling in Moab or on an expedition in the Sahara.” The vehicle will have stamped AEV bumpers, “military-spec” Truck Lites LED headlamps, Rigid Industry LED safety and back-up lamps, and AEV suspension with “the shortest lifts with the largest tires” for a low center of gravity despite a higher ground clearance and no reduction in ride quality.

David Zatz founded Allpar in 1998 (based on a site he had begun in 1993-94), after years of writing reviews for retail trades. He has been quoted by the New York Times, the Daily Telegraph, the Detroit News, and USA Today. Before making Allpar a full-time career, he was a consultant in organizational psychology.
