    2019 Moab Easter Jeep® Safari Vehicle Sneak Peek

    April 2, 2019 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - Moab Easter Jeep® Safari Vehicle Sneak Peek: The Jeep and Mopar brands have created several concept vehicles for the annual Easter Jeep Safari.

    Our Analysis:

    The blue concept with the J6 badging could be a teaser for a short cab Gladiator. The original J6 was an extended wheelbase CJ with a short bed (photo below). There's also clearly no rear door on this concept.

    The other concept is clearly a Jeep Gladiator with a sport bar attached to the bed and what appears to be a track system on the bed floor.

    They've had two-door pickups at EJS in the past. Wouldn't get my hopes up that it'll come to production

    If it’s true to original form, it will be a long wheelbase 2-door JL, with a low back rear seat.

    The J6 concept looks like it has roof lights. I presume they are on the sport bar like an 80's pickup truck.

    I'm hoping they bring back the SAFARI concept again . . . could be a Bronco Buster ! ? I'd Love it if they did . . . go as far as trade up my newly acquired JT or JLU for it . . . absolutely would . . . Very Utilitarian for those not wanting or needing the ROOF OFF Option !

    The J6 concept is definitely a 2 door truck. You can see that it has a similar top to the rear section of the Gladiator. Also there is a light on the top that is possibly supported by a sport bar.

    I heard the 2021 2dr Jeep J6 truck is going to get power wagon axles, 37s from the factory, and a Hemi. All for $30,000! It will also hold DOUBLE the plywood of the Gladiator.

    Take that 4dr guys...

    Is that some form of HALF DOORS on the yellow one? Or just a paint job that appears that way. I’m crossing my fingers for half doors.
