Jeep® Wrangler 4xe concept

The Jeep® Wrangler 4xe concept showcases how passionate off-roaders can build upon the award-winning plug-in hybrid electric vehicle with factory-backed parts and accessories from Jeep Performance Parts (JPP).

Starting with the industry-first JPP 2-inch lift kit with FOX shocks specifically tuned for the new Wrangler 4xe, the Wrangler 4xe concept rides on JPP Beadlock-capable Wheels with functional Beadlock Rings, mounted with BFGoodrich KM3 37-inch tires. Custom underbody rock lights illuminate the ground below at all four corners so the driver can see and avoid damage from rocks and debris.

A JPP stamped steel bumper features a custom single-hoop winch protector with an attached LED light just above a Warn winch.

A JPP Gorilla Glass windshield offers up to three times the strength of a stock windshield. A pair of JPP 5-inch, off-road, LED lights sit at the base of each A-pillar. Both LED lights use a concept A-pillar bracket that allows the driver’s side light to fit around the plug-in charging port door on the fender.

The premium Ivory Pearl exterior color extends to the JPP tube doors. JPP rock rails and all original-production black accents have been painted a distinctive, Dark Neutral Metallic Grey outside and inside the vehicle. Custom fender and hood graphics add to the aggressive, yet premium exterior appearance.

In the rear, a JPP Swing Gate Hinge Reinforcement allows a full-size spare wheel and tire to be mounted on the swing gate and a JPP CHMSL (Center High-Mount Stop Lamp) Relocation Kit provides a third brake light in the center of the spare tire.

Striking Mopar Blue Katzkin leather seats with tungsten stitching distinguishes the custom interior that includes a concept, three-piece JPP vinyl floor, featuring four drain plugs for easy cleaning.

A custom JPP instrument panel accessory rail system securely holds mobile devices, such as cell phones or cameras, in place. For the driver, stainless-steel JPP pedal covers feature black rubber pads, adding plenty of traction to the accelerator and brake pedals. In addition, JPP door-grab handles provide easy entry and exit.

Inside the tailgate, a custom trail-rail management system features multi-position cargo loops to safely secure and carry gear while a JPP swing-gate flip-down table adds a useful flat surface. A custom on-board compressor is also integrated into the tailgate for any air inflation needs.

Jeep Wrangler Overlook concept

The Jeep Wrangler Overlook concept stretches a four-door Wrangler Sahara into a three-row off-roader loaded with luxury touches and a wide array of products from the JPP portfolio.

The cabin of the Sahara Bronze Jeep Overlook concept extends an additional 12 inches to hold a third row of seats. The custom modular roofline is 5 inches taller than standard for more interior headroom.

Outdoor viewing is enhanced with dual side and three front-facing windows above the second and third rows. A custom removable one-piece Freedom Top with flip-up glass sunroof panel opens the view over the driver and front passenger.

A JPP 2-inch lift kit with FOX shocks makes room for 20-inch Black Rhino York wheels mounted on 37-inch BFGoodrich KM3 mud-terrain tires. Black JPP tubular side steps, with molded inserts for sure-footed traction, provide superior protection and durability.

The JPP stamped steel front bumper is narrower than the stock unit for improved approach angle, but still wide enough to provide fender protection, and is fitted with a custom top close out and LED fog lamps. Above the bumper, the grille is finished in Satin Black. The concept hood is accented with custom black Mopar hood latches that feature the Jeep Willys logo. A pair of JPP 5-inch off-road LED lights with a custom-designed Platinum Chrome finish are mounted ahead of the A-pillars, each shining at 4,800 lumens to help illuminate the trail.

In back, a Tailgate Reinforcement System and Oversized Spare Tire Carrier Modification Kit enables a larger spare tire to be mounted on the swing gate. A JPP CHMSL Relocation Kit mounts the third brake light in the center of the spare tire.

Custom-made rear bumper extensions reach about 12 inches around each quarter panel to the wheel flares.

The interior is outfitted with luxurious black Katzkin leather seats and a black leather-wrapped dashboard. Both seats and dash are accented with Sahara Bronze stitching to match the exterior. Center panels in the seats use Raven Black suede in a hexed stitch pattern. Front seats have a Jeep grille logo embroidered in the seat backs. Helping protect the sill areas under all four doors are black sill guards featuring the vehicle’s logo.

Kaiser Jeep M725 concept

The Kaiser Jeep M725 concept is a vintage 1967 Kaiser Jeep M725 military ambulance transformed for duty as an ultimate off-road support machine and rolling mascot for JPP.

Painted Desert Tan, the concept rides on 20-by-12-inch, eight-lug Black Rhino Armory wheels that are wrapped with 40-inch tires. The wheel-and-tire package fits under custom, widened fenders. The Kaiser Jeep M725 is unlike any other 4x4 “go anywhere” style of vehicle found on the trails or streets.

The custom-designed roof panel over the cargo area can raise 16 inches, creating enough room for occupants to stand while retrieving supplies or serving food and refreshments from the open driver’s side rear panel.

Modified JPP rock rails shield the body of the Kaiser Jeep M725 between the wheel wells. Rock rails are made of heavy-gauge steel and coated with Durabull® truck bedliner coating for enhanced protection and durability.

Forward lighting comes from a set of concept 7-inch LED headlamps, flanked by separate pairs of JPP 5-inch off-road LED lights. A JPP 7-inch off-road LED light is center mounted just above the windshield and custom fitted for use as a spotlight.

Out back, LED taillights are installed in the original protective metal buckets. A back-up camera provides convenient rear visibility for the driver.

The off-road capability of the Kaiser Jeep M725 is enhanced by reinforcing the original frame and replacing the original leaf springs with a heavy-duty link/coil suspension system. Under the hood sits a Mopar 392 Crate HEMI® V-8 engine linked to a vintage TorqueFlite 727 automatic transmission. This combination delivers 485 horsepower and 475 lb.-ft. of torque.

Inside, low-back Jeep Wrangler seats are wrapped in tan canvas. The driver control center includes a custom-built steering wheel and column, and instrument panel equipped with modern gauges and a backup camera display screen. A specially designed data plaque, showing the unique specifications of the Kaiser Jeep M725, mounts on the dashboard.

The custom center console, crafted from a repurposed ammunition box, carries the transmission and transfer case shifters. The vehicle floor is coated with bedliner material for enhanced grip and durability.

Meh.
The J6 still takes the crown for best concept, and the one that they NEED to build.
Just my opinion!

Jeep knows how to play us like a violin: more stuff for Mopar to sell so that dealers can void the warranty.

The house always wins.

Overlook makes my 4-door JL look compact for trail use.

I don't see the Overlook doing well at all. Look at that laughably horrible departure angle! Now they've really turned it into a bus. I doubt that thing will make it up my driveway without scraping, no less any non-flat offroad terrain.

If you reduce the Jeep's off road ability with that huge overhanging rear deck then it begs the question, why a live front axle then? The rear end won't handle any more than what IFS can. Heck, why isn't this a different vehicle entirely? There are many other vehicles that can hold that amount of passengers more comfortably and have equally bad departure angles.

definitely significantly less departure clearance than a regular 2dr or 4dr wrangler, but doesn’t look appreciably different than a gladiator (I’ll bet this was built up on a gladiator frame).

People seem to be doing fairly well with the gladiators when set up properly.

so with the right use in mind, I think it could be a real winner.

Well the right use isn't carrying people. Look at that interior shot. How do you even get into the 3rd row? It's still a full bench seat in the middle. It may be interesting from a Jeep-focused perspective but if you look at other manufacturers, far more practical interior design while relatively on-par with off-road ability.
