Car and Driver: Trailstorm Brewing: Wrangler and Renegade Commander Concepts Join 2016 Easter Safari Haul


Recommended Posts



What happens when you go beyond Trailhawk? Apparently you get a Trailstorm, which is what Jeep is calling this upgraded Wrangler concept that’s part of the 2016 Easter Jeep Safari haul.


Based on a Wrangler Unlimited, the Trailstorm tackles the dirt with 37-inch tires and a two-inch lift kit that incorporates Fox shocks. Dana 44 front and rear axles put the power down, while the 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 and five-speed automatic transmission carry over from the stock Wrangler.


Jeep chopped off half of the doors to give drivers a better view, and the interior features a bedliner to simplify cleanup. The Trailstorm’s camo-wrapped exterior is set off with black grille trim, LED fog lights, hood vents, rock rails, a fastback softtop, taillight guards, and steel front and rear bumpers.




As opposed to many of the other outlandish Easter Safari concepts, the Jeep Renegade Commander is something that could be created in your garage—if you own a Renegade and buy all the right Mopar accessories and performance parts, that is.


In fact, the only non-Mopar element of the Commander is the Fluorescent Gray exterior paint. Otherwise, the lift kit, 17-inch wheels, trailer hitch, auxiliary lights, and 29.5-inch BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A K02 tires are all available from Mopar, as are the Katzkin seat covers, color accents, and floor mats found inside.
