Moab Concepts Love/Hate

I think last year’s crop of Moab concepts far surpassed this year’s.

Lower 40 was the best, stopped everyone.

The doors [Switchback] remind me of the old one-piece soft doors on CJs in the ’70s. The ones that had two windows.

Send me the Quicksand Jeep ASAP!

So ugly [Quicksand].

My eyes may never recover. Beyond stupid [Quicksand].

Wait, the Grand Cherokee is 25 years old? I remember seeing the Grand for the first time at an auto show and now they’re restoring them? Wow, I’m old.

Quicksand is sick. In a good way.

Of the ones to choose from, the CJ66.

I think this year’s offerings are pretty lame and blah, honestly. None of them got me excited or pumped or thinking “wow, nice!” Would take the Nukizer 715 over anything showed.

It’s gotta be tough to come up with these concepts each year. I mean, how many ways can you modify a Wrangler? I say good job, but bring back the Ram truck concepts! That silver diesel Power Wagon and red Ram Runner from a few years ago were awesome.

Kudos to Jeep and Mopar for building these concepts. Why aren’t the other manufacturers going to Moab to show off cool modded 4x4s?

Each year Mopar and Jeep trot out a collection of concepts at the Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, Utah, and it’s big news. Some years have been more noteworthy than others, but Mopar and Jeep deserve a pat on the back for pushing the envelope and coming up with creative concepts each year. For 2017, it was clearly the Quicksand Jeep that ignited some passionate opinions.

Verne has built a lot of cool rigs but this one is my favorite!

Pivoting Ferrari
I was just reading your Trail’s End (Sep. ’17) about the Chevy pickup that pivoted in the middle. That idea has been in production 4x4s for a long time before that article. I’m attaching a picture of my Ferrari (imported from Italy, note the decal above the grille) from the early ’80s. Besides the articulating chassis, it has mechanical locking differentials, full hydraulic steering, seven forward and two reverse gears, suspension seats, ag tires all around, and a PTO output in the back. This particular one has had the original motor replaced with a Dodge 318.
