Earlier this year, I built a Jeep-tub trailer from the back halves of two tubs left over from my pickup projects:
The trailer has worked out great - I've already got over 2500 miles on it hauling future project parts home.
I'm very happy with the end result, but it was a challenging project at times. Even building a simple, small Jeep-tub trailer is beyond the means of most people - if you don't have a welder and some metalworking and bodywork skills, it would be tough to build this trailer or even a much simpler one.
Which got me to thinking - lots of people seem to want to have a Jeep-tub trailer to match their Jeep, what if it could be made easy for them? What if it could be a bolt-together kit? What if a set of fiberglass parts were made that would bolt together in
Is this the Jeep Grand Wagoneer?
The Jeep Yuntu Concept made its debut earlier this year at the Shanghai Motor Show, and at first, it was believed to preview a China-only model. After its debut, there were rumors that the production Yuntu could head to the U.S., badged as a Chrysler seven-seater SUV offering. But now, it’s appearing the Yuntu could become the Grand Wagoneer in the U.S. based on these spy photos.
What we do know is that this three-row prototype features a design that matches the Yuntu Concept, with similar headlights, tail lights, and overall profile.

Going for an upscale look, Jeep unveiled the Wrangler Flat Top Concept for the 2013 Easter Jeep Safari.
Predictably, the biggest change that comes to the Jeep Wrangler Flat Top concept is the addition of a new one-piece windowless hard top, which along with the absence of a b-pillar gives this concept an open air feel. The Flat Top gets a sandstone, copper and brown theme that can be seen throughout, along with other enhancements such as a custom hood and bumpers lifted from the Wrangler Rubicon 10th Anniversary model.

With weight savings as the priority, Jeep has unveiled the Wrangler Stitch Concept at the 2013 Easter Jeep Safari in Moab.
The Wrangler Stitch Concept has a curb weight of about 3,000 lbs, giving it a similar power-to-weight ratio as the Grand Cherokeoo SRT8. To shave off the pounds, the audio system, heating and air conditioning, rear seats, doors, and sections of the body were all removed from the Wrangler Stitch. The Stitch sits on 35-inch off-road tires and 17-inch aluminum wheels, and is fitted with a chrome moly roll cage.
