The annual Moab Easter Safari is upon us and as always, Jeep will be presenting a total of six concepts to show off when the event kicks off this coming March 23-31 in Moab, Utah.
One of the models that Jeep released is the Wrangler "Slim" Edition, a rather adventurous-looking utility vehicle that’s been dressed up in what Jeep describes as the Rock Lobster color exterior — a fancy name for a fancy color.
We don’t know where the "Slim" name plays into the picture, but apparently, Jeep is using a plethora of lightweight components on this Wrangler, highlighted by a special 10th Anniversary Rubicon front bumper to with an extremely lightweight rear bumper. The special-edition Wrangler also comes with lightweight rock rails, a fancy black grille, black hood decals, LED headlights, a Mopar cold-air intake, a locking gas cap, and a set of 17-inch Jeep Performance Parts forged bead-lock wheels wrapped in Rubicon tires.
Meanwhile, the interior of the Wrangler Slim only gets a few choice upgrades, particularly leather seat covers, a hard-top headliner, all-weather slush mats and a CB radio.
Powering the Wrangler Slim is a 3.6-liter V-6 engine that produces a stout 260 horsepower and 237 pound-feet of torque while mated to a five-speed automatic transmission.
