Jeep does quite a lot of experimenting and playing around with ideas. It no wonder then that it has as well managed to bring around some extraordinary artwork to our roads.
The Quicksand concept took off as a two-door Wrangler. Within no time it hand been completely transformed into something that could catch the attention of the least interested onlooker.
A stretched wheelbase, a lifted suspension and the standard V-8 392 cubic-inch Hemiare just some of the cool features we are talking about. Jeep intimates that the relatively low-slung Quicksand remains capable of all things Jeepy and quite true it looks just as hot.
Each corner is supported by a coil-over damper and an 18-inch vintage-look mag wheel. In front, the wheels are wrapped in massive 32-inch BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain T/A KM2 mud tires; in back, the same tires are used, but in a 37-inch diameter.
Inside, the interior has been transformed to look like 1955. The gauge cluster has been removed and replaced with old-school units. Even the radio is trashed and replaced with a center speedometer.
The HVAC controls are gone, replaced with toggle switches for various components. The S-curved shifter continues the theme with a toy Jeep buried in clear plastic.
The red leather seats are low-back buckets and feature white contrast stitching and a quilted pattern. There’s only space for two, though, as the rear cargo area is used for the fuel cell and battery.
A chromed roll bar adds some protection, while the roof is completely open, spanned only by chromed bars for added security. This one-off concept Jeep was built for the 2017 Easter Jeep Safari, an annual event in Moab, Utah where thousands of Jeep enthusiasts come to drive desert trails.
We just wish it was going to full mode production.
