7 Jeeps Modified for Easter Jeep Safari
Fifty years later, the Easter Jeep Safari continues to gain popularity. Check out these awesome Jeeps modified for it.
1. FC 150
Easter Jeep Safari consists of trail rides, mostly day long trips, departing from Moab Utah throughout the 9 day long event, which is hosted by the Red Rock 4-Wheelers Inc. one of the the local four wheel drive clubs of Moab.
Just when you think you've seen it all, you could just see a Jeep FC 150 off-roading in Utah. This is a restored FC 150, which was built for the 50th anniversary Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, Utah. The FC, which stands for Forward Control, was produced from 1956 to 1965, and the Forward Control stood for the cab over axle design.
2. Hellcat Wrangler
They call this Jeep Wrangler a Trailcat, maybe because it can climb hills like a cat, maybe because it is fast like a cat, or maybe because it has a massive Hellcat engine in it. This Wrangler Hellcat was also designed for the 2016 Easter Jeep Safari, and aside from its crazy suspension, amazing colors, unique body, and insane details, it develops 707-horsepower that will leave most other off-roaders in the dust... literally.
3. Wrangler Trailstorm
This piece of art is called the Trailstorm, and it was designed for the world famous Easter Jeep Safari by Jeep itself. This Wrangler used to be an Unlimited model, but it received quite the face lift, as well as some performance modifications that will make it storm through the trails, hence its name. The tires you're looking at are 37-inch tires, and if you look closely, you will notice an elegant two-inch lift that are complemented by Fox shocks. Of course what makes this Jeep special to your eyes is the camo-wrapped exterior with the black accents all around, making it simply one-of-a-kind.
4. Jeep Chief
This unique build was done for the 2015 Easter Jeep Safari. The build is based off of the full-size Jeep Cherokee of the '70s, and it honors the surfer culture. Inside, there is a tiki-style shifter, smooth white seats, and small details that proves the attention-to-details these builders had. Of course your eyes are feasting because of this light-blue color mixed with the clean white stripes and even cleaner white top, making it officially a classic beast.

5. Modern Day CJ-5
This Wrangler might look simple, but it required much more work than you can imagine. This build was done by Jeep in honor of the Jeep CJ-5, but instead of restoring a classic CJ-5, they shortened a brand new Wrangler to make it look like this. The first three things that will come to your mind when you're enjoying this Jeep are the classic rims, the out-of-this-world upholstery, and how you can own this.
6. Crew Chief 715
You are not dreaming and this isn't Photoshop. This Jeep does exist. This machine was built to salute the legend that is the Military Kaiser M715, and unlike most M715, this one didn't see the battlefield... until the 2016 Easter Jeep Safari. This is built on a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, but almost everything on it was changed. The bumpers were removed, and steel bumpers were installed in their place, and the wheels were substituted with 40-inch wheels. If this isn't the most beautiful thing you've ever seen, we would love to experience what you saw.

7. Renegade Comanche
This military-colored Jeep was modified for the 2016 Easter Jeep Safari. It is a unique Renegade-based Comanche pickup, and it is built by the best in the business: Jeep. The subtle military beige color with the solid black wheels make this car pop in the middle of the bunch, not to mention the small accents like the red tow hitch are nothing short of brilliant. This is a simple, amazing looking pickup.
