Impressed by the custom offroading vehicles Chrysler brought to the 44th Easter Jeep Safari?
A few of them are coming to the 2010 SEMA show to represent the company's offroad group and, in today's video find, we get a brief behind-the-scenes look at the vehicles from or inspired by the Jeep Safari 2010 4x4s.
Mark Allen, the chief designer for Jeep Exterior, talks about how the three vehicles show creative ways to use Mopar accessories on various vehicles.
For the J7 Stripper, Allen says "we enhanced the look of this car by actually taking pieces off of it."
You won't find foglights, carpet, or alloy wheels on this SUV, and it doesn't take long to see the 35-inch Mickey Thompson tires.
The Nukizer 715, Allen says, is a design in homage to trucks used by the military in the 1960s.
"This particular vehicle is made out of a J8 military truck that we make in Egypt, so it's got real good hardware to it," Allen says, later mentioning the 2.8-liter diesel engine and chopped roof.
Last, but certainly not least, is the Ram Power Wagon. Powered by the 5.7-liter V-8, the menacing truck has 40-inch tires. The "desert offroad flavor" comes from the combination of a 120-inch wheelbase with the duallie box from the 3500 heavy duty truck.
The SEMA show runs from November 2-5.
