With the 47th annual Moab Easter Jeep Safari coming up at the end of this month, Jeep is preparing to roll out six new off-road-ready concept vehicles. The first two being teased are the Jeep Grand Cherokee "Trailhawk II" concept and the Jeep Wrangler "Slim," and while we have no information on either, we at least get an idea of what they'll look like.

We can't tell why this Wrangler is called Slim, but it has a nice black-and-red paint scheme with a serious off-roading front bumper and five-spoke beadlock wheels. There's even less we can figure out about the Grand Cherokee's Trailhawk II concept except that it appears to be painted up in the same Crusher Orange paint job as the recently introduced SRT Viper TA. We'll likely more of these as well as peeks at the other Moab concepts as we get closet to this year's Moab Easter Jeep Safari, which will be held March 23 through 31.

      Wouldn't it be far more interesting to see a production jeep truck getting ironed out instead?? Just wondering...... Anticipating... Hoping.....

        Chrysler Group has already flatly stated they won't allow that to happen. Ram is the truck brand, not Jeep or Dodge. They did however allow Mopar to offer the JK8 Independence conversion for the Wrangler Unlimited for a two passenger Wrangler truck, which can be purchased and installed at a dealer

      There are only 2 Jeep concepts I want to see... a compact pickup, and something along the lines of a mini Wrangler, about the size of a gen 1 Geo Tracker but that's more capable off road.

      Jeep. Jeep. Jeep. You keep teasing us year after year, decade after decade with lust-worthy concepts. But, what have you done with them? Nothing.

        Actually, the GC Trailhawk trim started as an Easter Jeep concept and was put into production. Likely this Trailhawk II concept is just a preview of the production Trailhawk trim that will eventually be offered on the refreshed 2014 GC

        They're concepts. How many concept vehicles actually get built?

      I bet the Wrangler Slim is a low-cost/stripped out/aftermarket-ready version of the regular Wrangler, geared toward serious off-roaders. That'd be cool.

      They built two amazing ones last year and didn't make production versions, so frankly who cares.

      Ha, that wrangler looks like the old (terrible) Wrangler Renegade of the early 90\'s. The 1 piece solid bumper/fenders were terrible for off-roading. Expensive to repair and impossible to customize.

        Meh, it just looks like the euro-spec version of the 10th Anniversary edition Rubicon bumper. All the euro-spec bumpers wrap up to meet the flares like that.
