The "Africa" is one of the concept Wranglers prepared by Jeep for the 2015 Easter Jeep Safari in Moab. These photos were just posted up to a couple of automobile websites. Thoughts?

Hate to admit it but that's not half bad.

Well that will complete Jeep's takeover of the Land Rover Defender marketshare. Looks like Jeep decided to go ahead and redesign the Defender since Jerry has his head stuck in the sand. Jeeps look more like Rovers every day.

It looks pretty bad ass for an overland base.

Jeep is on the ball, they have vision, sadly Rover does not, which is one of the reasons I didn't go to work for them.

This prototype is pretty sweet too:

The "Staff" concept Wrangler isn't too bad either.

I can envision that staff concept being gobbled up by rental and tour companies in the Atlantic and Pacific.

More available aftermarket parts also.
But my blood is green. Probably from drinking too much Guinness.

Africa resembles the old Willys wagons. I like it. Military one is interesting. No roll cage?

And they are supposed to be bringing the diesel here as well. I guess everyone is saying that, but the ceo said it at one of the auto shows.

If the wheels were vented like the wolfs and the rear windows similar to the d90/fj40 it would be perfect. I really like thefull size rear doorr, more JK's iI see the more I realize defenders are dumb. I still prefer the defender for some unknown reason
