Jeep introduced several prototype vehicles for the annual Easter Jeep Safari at Moab, UT. The Jeep Cherokee Dakar may not be a JK, but this is the most modified Cherokee out there, currently. While Mopar says the lift kit isn’t available, let’s see what could be done if someone were to brave a warranty void and create the ultimate “KL” chassis.

It’s time to catch up with Bill Craig (known as “DesertJeep” here on the forums). He’s the guy who drove the Fallen Heros Jeep for the Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, Utah. Bill arrived in Moab on the night of April 13th with the Fallen Heroes Jeep. There were plans to repaint the JK, but those fell through and paint will be done when it gets back to Phoenix, Arizona.

We watched the 1784 Jeep Cherokee drive across the field in front of us, cutting the pit course of the Parker 425. We had assumed it was just a newbie who got lost or somebody desperate to get fuel. As I continued to watch, I realized more was going on. It turns out the driver shut off the truck to make sure he didn’t kill the fuel pump, but it failed to restart. To make matters worse, this wasn’t even his pit spot.
