The Jeep Staff Car Concept looks like it’s ready for combat, and that’s a (very) good thing. Jeep design started with a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited and stripped away much of the unnecessary to make the Jeep Staff Car Concept look ready for combat. Doors and B-Pillars are gone, bumpers that are from the J8 and sand-colored steel wheels take the place of oversized “civilian” wheels. Those wheels are 16-inch and are wrapped in 35-inch Firestone NDT military tires.
According to Jeep: “The minimalist interior features low-backed bench seats in the first and second row, an integrated roll cage and a painted steel floor in place of carpet. A built-in cooler draws its inspiration from an old artillery box and accommodates 85 cans.
The Jeep Staff Car is powered by the 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine mated to a six-speed manual transmission. The Staff Car has a Jeep Performance Parts 2-inch lift kit with Fox shocks and front and rear Dana 44 axles.”
The custom components, including the “Hungry Horse” stretched canvas roof, military-style round headlamps, fender-mounted blackout lamps and a rear-mount spare tire with vintage military gas can may not make it to a Mopar accessory catalogue, but you never know. Jeep has been known for making some exceptionally cool accessories available.
