One of our favorite concepts from the 2018 Easter Jeep Safari is the Jeep Sandstorm. It’s a JL Wrangler powered by a 392 HEMI V-8 mated with a 6-speed manual transmission and chopped down into a short-bed pickup.
After spending some time behind the wheel, social media editor Billy Rehbock said that “Driving the Sandstorm is an experience that delivers. The cabin’s open in the back so the driven can take in the sound of the V-8 and the dirty pops and burbles on the overrun. The clutch engages early, perfect for maintaining control of speed on an incline or descent. The bright-orange rig takes off like a proper HEMI-powered vehicle under full-throttle too.
Here are ten things to love about this off-road concept Jeep.
