Auburn Hills, Mich. – Seven new, capable and fun Jeep concept vehicles – featuring a host of Mopar and Jeep Performance Parts available to consumers – are set to conquer the trails of Moab, Utah, at the 49th annual Easter Jeep Safari, taking place March 28-April 5. The Easter Jeep Safari is attended by thousands of die-hard off-road enthusiasts, who each year enjoy a week of serious off-roading on some of the country’s most rugged and recognizable trails.
The Fusion Series from GenRight Off Road comes as a result of listening to customer requests, and fusing those into new models which integrate more of the factory JK options. This innovative new line, exclusively for the JK, is also easier to install than the Signature Series and, as a bonus, comes with a lower price point!
Borla Performance announced today the launch of their new cat-back exhaust system for the 2011 through 2015 models of the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. The system will be debuted on several Jeeps built by John Williams at Impulse Off Road, Dennis Wood at Teraflex Suspension, and Dan McKeag at Dakota Customs at the 2015 Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, Utah, March 28 – April 5, 2015. Borla is the pioneer and leading manufacturer of aerospace-grade T-304 stainless steel performance exhaust systems.
It’s just a peek, but today Jeep released a first glimpse at the concept vehicles it will bring out to the 49th Annual Easter Jeep Safari. The annual gathering of Jeepers will take place at the end of March in Moab, Utah. Jeep will bring out seven different new concept vehicles for this year’s event, all of which will feature Jeep Performance Parts from Mopar.
The Easter Jeep Safari draws in Jeep enthusiasts of all sorts. Toward the end of EJS week, the tradeshow at the Spanish Trail Arena pulls together those who’ve made the trek to Moab, Utah, to mingle, share stories of the week’s trail rides, and for the aftermarket to highlight the latest and greatest off-road parts.
There are always a few over-the-top builds stationed in the surrounding parking lots to gawk at just walking into the event, but the real show is inside the vendor area, where a showcase of company project vehicles and the newest product designs are featured in booths inside and outside of the arena. While perusing the products and vehicles at the 48th Easter Jeep Safari, we came across a few new items that caught our attention.
Although it was introduced this morning to the general automotive media thousands of miles away at the New York Auto Show, Jeep also unveiled its new 2015 Renegade model to the group off hard-core Jeep enthusiasts in attendance at the Easter Jeep Safari today in Moab, Utah. Unveiling the Trailhawk version of the new SUV at EJS, Jeep believes the Renegade will be a great seller in the small sport-utility market, but it remains focused on retaining the off-road roots for which the brand is known.
Every year for the Easter Jeep Safari, Jeep and Mopar show up to Moab, Utah, with a number of concept vehicles to wow the off-road world. For 2014, the crew focused on using its existing platforms to highlight new Jeep Performance Products from the Mopar catalog or concept parts that may or may not be available to consumers down the road. Of all the vehicles at this year’s event, the Jeep Wrangler Maximum Performance is definitely the most extreme of them all.

The Moab EJS Bunny Run put on by Dynatrac, Superlift and Falken Tire brings together some of the slickest Jeeps this side of the Colorado – and quite a few from the other side of the river, too. Off-Road.com was invited along for the action, and we hopped on the Jeep train heading toward Strike Ravine, 12 miles outside of town.

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO – This weekend Torchmate Racing’s JT Taylor continues his world wide adventures starting the 2013 General Tire NORRA Mexican 1000 Race. JT Taylor will iron man the #313 in the new Ultra4 Class with co-drivers Doug Nagy, Scott Estrada and Ryan Scott taking on different sections. “Since we ran last year in the Evolution 4×4 class and won, they called it a success and are allowing an Ultra4 class this year,” explained JT Taylor who will be running his 5th straight NORRA 1000 event. “I always say this is the funnest race on the planet, and I mean it! It is a well-run race, and getting better every year. Mike Pearlman and the crew do a great job and I look forward to seeing them at the start line and finish line every day!”
The final prep on the car is done and is already in route to the sunny beaches from the Colorado winter. “The car is in pretty good shape from the King of the Hammers, all I did between it and Moab Easter Jeep Safari was wash it,” said JT. “I did change the Goodyear tires from 40’s to the 37’s for this race and put on a new set of awesome Rigid Lights. The first few days are really long and if we do have any problems they may come in handy if I end up having to run in the dark. And, if I don’t use them, I’ll certainly look cool,” chuckled JT Taylor.
