The SUV specialist has unveiled concepts with significant additions that not only adds visual bling but also enhances the Jeeps’ already high off road prowess.
The first of the concepts is the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk II Concept. The car is powered by a EcoDiesel V6 engine. The imposing concept threatens the beholder with its humongous 35″ tires that are wrapped around the 17″ Rubicon alloy wheels. The wheel arches are flared to achieve a visual balance and the Trailhawk II Concept looks ravishing in the Orange paint job.

The concept employs 4.5″ prototype long arm suspension kit and comes shod with prototype eight-lug bead lock wheels.
[Jeep Wrangler Stitch Concept]
