Called the CJ66, it melds a previous-generation TJ frame with a 1966 CJ “Tuxedo Park” body. While the engine remains a mystery – Mopar will be unveiling new products later today at the show – it is paired with a six-speed manual transmission. Whatever the engine is, it’s got a cold-air intake and cat-back exhaust to enhance its lung capacity. Two crate Mopar Dana 44 axles round out the running gear.
Outside, the CJ66 wears current-generation JK Wrangler headlights in its classic grille. The body is done in a bright orange hue called Copper Canyon, with custom CJ66 graphics on the hood. The concept Jeep rides on 35-inch BFG all-terrain tires on 17-inch Jeep Performance Parts wheels. The big fender flares are concept pieces, but the front and rear bumpers, skid plates and bumper plates are not.
Inside, the CJ66 has a modern-day JK center console between custom Viper seats. The custom steering wheel incorporates the new 50th Anniversary Moab Easter Jeep Safari logo.
The 2016 SEMA show runs today until November 4. The Mopar press event starts today at 4:26 pm Pacific time. TFLcar will be covering the show from wall to wall, so check back for more updates from the show.
