The Jeep Africa is supposed to be "the ultimate Jeep Wrangler for back-country and overland expeditions." It's a sloped-roof station wagon Wrangler with 35" tires and a 2.8 liter diesel engine so yeah, I'd say they pretty much nailed it.

Reminds me of the home-built "Safari Caps" we featured a while ago, but with the polish of OEM construction.

This Desert Tan Wrangler Unlimited features a high-clearance steel winch bumper, power rock rails (which will be very interesting to see in action), and a power dome vented hood. The body's extended a bit off a regular four-door Wrangler and the roof is not removable.

Fox shocks, a 2" lift kit, sway bar links, and Dana 44 axles, limb risers, a full-length roof rack and a bedliner'd interior finish it out.

This is one mean, clean, overlanding machine in one of my all-time favorite truck colors... I'm totally sittin' smitten over here. Did I mention it's diesel!?

Every year Jeep brings funky one-off prototypes to the "Easter Jeep Safari" event in Moab, Utah. It's basically the biggest scheduled gathering of Jeep nerds in America, and for 2015 (March 28 to April 5th) we'll see seven of these concepts in action. We're heading out to drive some of them, stay tuned!
