Red Alert – Jeep Wrangler Level Red
Jeep introduced its Moab concept vehicles during the Easter Jeep Safari. This two-door JK Wrangler is known as Level RED and is named after the classification of the most difficult off-road trail. Is it red-trail capable or a red herring? The Level Red starts off with a two-inch Jeep Performance Parts lift kit, and just like the MOJO, it includes Fox Racing Shocks. Ground clearance is further enhanced by a set of prototype 17 x 8.0 beadlock wheels and 35-inch BFGoodrich Mud Terrain tires. With a 4.10 gear-ratio Dana 44, 4:1 low-range Rock-Trac case, and six-speed manual transmission; the crawl ratio is 73:1. That will let you crawl anywhere but absolute vertical. Exterior enhancements include Rubicon 10th Anniversary bumpers with an under-bumper skid plate and prototype Aero ends, which flow into the fenders. Also installed are a Mopar half-door kit, Jeep Performance Parts Tire Carrier, Jeep Performance Parts Rock Rails, and a hood prop kit. There are also the “Badge of Honor” badges, in which a Jeep owner can acquire by “conquering” any of the 30 plus trails in the US that Jeep recognizes. No details on what trails they recognize in the press release, though. Inside, it’s “all business” black with TorRed HVAC rings, bright red rollbar padding, and other red accents, including stitching on the Katzkin leather seats. Finally, there is the prototype Jeep Cargo Management System (JCMS) that includes a tow-strap bag and first-aid kit on the rear swing gate. This could be a red trail conqueror, but we’ll have to see as Jeep continues to refine these prototypes and release the parts to the public.
