Earlier today we told you about the way cool Mopar Ram Runner, and here's a photo of it in action today proving it's much more than just a pretty face.
Here's a rear shot of it getting major air. Yep, the 14 inches of suspension travel work well.
Here's a shot of the Mopar PowerWagon we also mentioned earlier. This concept vehicle is simply amazing and a lot of fun to drive.
As we said, Mopar trotted out a slew of rigs today. Here's some of what hit the sand.
Jeep Nukizer 715: IS THIS COOL OR WHAT? This all-purpose truck pays homage to the military-only Kaiser M715. It began life as a military-issue Jeep J8 four-door but was converted to the rig you see here by adding an AEV Brute pickup box for a TJ. Some of the Nukizer's features include a 124-inch wheelbase, carbon fiber front clip, Bestop soft top, 2.8L turbodiesel I-4 diesel engine, Atlas II transfer case, Dynatrac ProRock 44 front axle, Dynatrac ProRock 60 rear axle, ARB Air Lockers, 5.38 gears, and 38-inch BFG M-Ts on Hutchinson beadlock wheels.
Mopar ImMortal: It's a Wrangler with military-grade portal axle ends that are engineered to mate to Mopar's Pro Rock and Power Wagon performance axles. These portal ends create five inches of lift and contain a 1.5 :1 gear reduction. Combined with the 4:1 transfer case, the ImMortal has a whopping 100:1 crawl ratio. Other mods include a 5.7L Hemi engine, two-inch lift kit, Mopar Performance body armor, Mopar AEV heat-reduction hood, hydraulic steering-assist, and 42-inch Goodyear MT/R tires.
Jeep Wrangler J7 Stripper: Don't like a bunch of frou-frou gizmos on your Jeep? Well, this should elate you. It's a Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon that was designed to have the basic appeal of military-issue vehicles. There's no carpet, fog lamps, alloy wheels, or stereo. It does have front and rear steel bumpers, "helicopter hooks," heavy-duty tailgate, and steel wheels. It has a two-inch Mopar suspension lift and 35-inch Mickey Thompson tires.
Jeep Wrangler Trail Boss: This Wrangler was designed to showcase Mopar's off-road products in the brand's trail catalog. It has a half-door kit, sun bonnet, AEV bumpers, Warn 9.5ti winch, three-inch lift, Hutchinson beadlock wheels, Katzkin leather seat trim kit, slush mats, Kicker audio system, and 35-inch Mickey Thompson tires.
The General: Set up for rockcrawling, it has a custom 4.5-inch Mopar lift kit, flat fender kit, Hutchinson beadlock wheels, new bumpers, rock rails, and Mopar half-door kit.
Mopar XJ Stroker: It's a '01 Cherokee wtih Mopar's 4.7L I-6 Stroker engine, Mopar XJ tube doors, heavy-duty rear bumpers, and custom rock rails among other things.
Jeep Patriot Extreme: Finally, there was this Patriot. It has a two-inch Rocky Road Outfitters lift, Jeep TJ "Moab" 16-inch wheels, BFG KM2 tires, custom rock rails, Mopar heavy-duty slush mats, Kicker audio system, and a roof-mounted snowboard carrier.
We'll have a full story on these and all of the vehicles Mopar brought to Moab in a upcoming issue of Four Wheeler, so stay tuned!
