Jeep Bringing a Whole Load Of Stuff To SEMA
The SEMA Auto Show doesn’t get going until next week, but we already have a good idea of what will be coming to the show in Las Vegas. Today, Chrysler’s Mopar Underground department has just unveiled three new off-road vehicles for the aftermarket show.
The first on offer will be twoJeeps, the J7 Stripper and the NuKaiser 715. The former will be a stripped down Wrangler with a two-inch lift kit and 35-inch Mickey Thompson off road tires. The latter will be based on the Egyptian-built J8 military-spec Jeep. It has a diesel motor and an AEV-sourced pickup bed. That bed is connected to a custom cab. It will also feature a few Mopar toys, such as rock rails, a winch bumper, and 38-inch Mud-Terrain tires.
On top of those Wranglers, Jeep will also bring one more, the Sahara Mopar Edition. There are no images of this vehicle as of now, but we do know that it will be lifted and given 35-inch tires with AEV alloy wheels. For playing in the rough stuff, the Sahara will feature steel front and rear bumpers, an integrated rear tire carrier, and a Mopar/AEV hood to add protection.
Hit the jump to see what other projects are heading to SEMA, plus a sneak preview video.
Two new Cherokees will be coming to SEMA as well. The first is the Street Cherokee and it will ride on 22-inch wheels, so not exactly the off-road beasts that we’ve seen so far. The motor, a 5.7-liter V8, has been left untouched, but there is a new exhaust system from Corsa. Inside, the Street Cherokee will get Mopar rubber floor mats, door sill lights, and custom pedals, while the exterior will get custom front fascia, painted door handles, black out tail lamps, and a chrome grille.
The secondCherokee on display will be the off road edition. It will be lifted up and given 33-inch Mud-Terrain tires. To top it off, the Jeep will get Mopar skid plates, rock rails, and tow hooks.
The Ram will also be making an experience in Power Wagon form. This Ram rides on a shorter Ram 2500 standard wheelbase with a big rear fender and 40-inch tires. It’s sort of like the Ford F-150 SVT Raptor, just not as good.
