As the annual Easter Jeep Safari held by Red Rock 4-Wheelers, Inc. inches closer and closer, we continue to be teased with what Jeep and Jeep Performance Parts are bringing to the table this year. The fourth official teaser has surfaced, and it appears a military inspired Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 4xe is the next vehicle we can expect to be in attendance in the Moab Utah desert this April.

Jeep Wrangler 4xe MB Concept?

The latest concept teaser throws things way back, to the 1940s, featuring heritage color schemes and a vintage wheel design first seen on the Willys Jeep MB, which cemented its place in history as a WWII military vehicle. According to Jeep, the versatility of the MB was unmatched, and was even awarded a Purple Heart and sent home. The MB proved to be a transportation solution for just about every role, both on the battlefield and off. For example, it could be fitted with .30 or .50 caliber machine guns, but they were also used for snow plowing, telephone cable laying, saw milling, as fire-fighting pumpers, field ambulances, tractors, and railway vehicles.

Other 2022 Jeep Easter Safari Vehicles

Jeep has so far teased five 2022 Moab Easter Safari vehicles; two Wranglers, two Gladiators, and a Grand Cherokee. Along with this military-throwback Wrangler 4xe, a Wrangler Rubicon 392 concept was also teased, as was a two-door Gladiator, another Gladiator teased by a QR code, while the Grand Cherokee is some kind of 4xe variant.

The 9-day Easter Safari takes place April 9th to the 17th and while it is widely known as a Jeep event where the brand highlights concepts and new vehicles, it isn’t technically exclusive to the brand. Team Bronco and The Bronco Nation will be in attendance hoping to crash the party as well. Registration for anyone wanting to join, with their own four-wheeler, is open now.
