Jeep has revealed its latest rock stars.

The American auto maker has stretch, lifted, chopped and changed seven vehicles to showcase its catalogue of performance parts and future products.

Jeep has built the off-roading concepts to take part in the annual Easter Moab Jeep Safari pilgrimage for rough-roading enthusiasts who congregate in Utah to travail a range of trails and climbs.

Jeep 4Speed 

The American marque has gone for a lightweight version of its new Wrangler with the aim of making it quick and nimble.

A carbon fibre hood, high-clearance carbon fender flares an d carbon fibre rear tub with perforated aluminium panels to strip weight from the off-roader.

The Jeep's ride height is two inches higher thanks to the weight saving measures while it has also been shortened by 22-inches, though, the wheelbase has been left in tack giving the vehicle greater approach and departure angles.

Jeep has wrapped the concept's 18-inch wheels in giant 35-inch BF Goodrich Mud Terrain tyres.

Jeep Sandstorm 

You'll never get stuck in the sand with the next off-roader. 

Jeep has dumped its big 6.4-litre V8 engine in the Sandstorm concept and added a mountain of equipment to help it tear up the dunes.

Massive 39.5-inch BF Goodrich Krawler tyres surround 17-inch wheels the heavy-duty front and rear Dynamic 60 axles have been added – with the front moved forward four-inches and the rear backwards two-inches to create a longer wheelbase.

Inspired by Baja desert racers the concept also gets a custom cage that integrates the chassis, leather trimmed front seats and low back rear bucket seats.

Jeep has also added a 7-inch off-road GPS to get you through the rough stuff while a racing inspired cluster harkens back to the racing theme.

Jeep B-Ute 

Unfortunately this isn't an actual ute, but a customised Jeep Renegade.

The B-Ute is the most toned-down concept at this year's safari with a 1.5-inch lift kit, roof rack and rock rails added. Along revised front and rear fascias and upper grille are, and wider flares.

Inside the concept scores a range of custom trim and inserts in dark finishes.

Jeep Wagoneer Roadtrip 

The American carmaker throws out some nostalgia with its Wagoneer concept, which is a throwback to summer family holidays.

Highlighting it original styling inside and out with a front and resar bench seats while a cooler has been created out of luggage from the 1960s and a custom tool box has been built from a a valve cover from the Wagoneer's original engine.

Jeep has fitted its 5.7-litre V8 engine to the Wagoneer concept and mated it to a four-speed auto for some old-world charm.

Nacho Jeep 

The Nacho Jeep concept has been added with gear and acts as a menu for the performance parts catalogue.

Exterior touches include a black hood graphic and black grille along with a steel bumper that offers up off-road protection.

Additional lighting has been added via a set of LEDs attached to the A-pillar and brush guard along with a rear mounted four-coloured scouring light that is used to communicate trail conditions along the line.

A 2-inch lift kit has been added that comes with new aluminium body shocks while large 37-inch tyres adds to its off-road credentials.

Jeep Jeepster 

Based on the Wrangler Rubicon the Jeepster concept is a throwback to the 1966 Jeepster.

Decked out in two-tone red and white paintwork like the original and features a white hardtop and windscreen surrounds.

Jeep has added extra LED lights on the front to help illuminate the way forward and a 2-inch lift kit with aluminium body shocks has also been added.

A spare 38-inch tyre is secured via a special cabin inside while red stitching and logos are highlights inside.

Storage packs have been added to the rear where the spare tyre would usually be kept.

Jeep J-Wagon

Jeep has taken one of its Wrangler Sahara's and applied some of its Mopar goodies to turn it into a more urban focused off-roader.

Equipped with five inch LED lights mounted at the front and snorkel give the J-Wagon some off-road cred while cosmetic touches like brass-coloured touches all over play on its urban focus.

The concept features a rock slider guard and roof rails as well as a 35-inch spare tyre attached to the rear.
