Filled with Jeep Performance Parts and Mopar products, the Jeep Trailstorm Concept is a prime example of what can be accomplished by using catalogs and a bit of ingenuity. Many of the additional components, like the bedliner and “concept” fast-back soft-top may or may not make it into production. Considering how many aftermarket players there are, it’s a good bet they will have similar components readily available.

“The (Jeep) Trailstorm concept vehicle is the ultimate Jeep Wrangler for exploring off the beaten path. Offering room for extra gear and fuel tanks, it is based on the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, and delivers elevated capability to conquer trails with ease.

Off-road capabilities are enhanced with several Jeep Performance Parts, including 17-inch concept off-road wheels wrapped in 37-inch tires, a 2-inch lift kit with Jeep Performance Parts/Fox shocks, a Jeep Performance Parts Rubicon winch, and Dana 44 front and rear axles. Half doors offer a clear view of obstacles ahead and a bedlined interior makes cleaning up after a day on the trails easy.

Mopar exterior enhancements include a winch guard, Satin Black grille, LED headlights and fog lights, high top fenders, power-dome vented hood, Mopar off-road rock rails with a step, Big Brake Kit, a concept fast-back soft top, tail light guards and a Mopar fuel filler door.

Finishing the Trailstorm’s exterior upgrades are a steel front and rear Rubicon bumper and a Jeep Performance Parts tire carrier. The Trailstorm is wrapped in camouflage allowing it to blend into its surroundings in the Utah desert.

The Trailstorm’s bedlined interior also features Katzkin seat covers and Mopar all-weather floor mats. The Jeep Trailstorm is powered by a 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine and is mated to a 5-speed automatic transmission” – – Jeep/FCA

Interesting look. I’m not too sure about the wrap. We’ll just have to wait until we see this concept in person. We will have an opportunity to cover the Jeep Trailstorm Concept along with many other prototypes and concepts when we attend the 2016 Easter Jeep Safari. Stay tuned to lots of coverage!
