The collaborative project that has given us the 45th Moab Jeep Easter Safari is finally going to be available for the people on 19th April. Both companies would be represented at the event and there would be a number of new customized vehicles that the two makers would present to the public to ogle over.
There would be the Jeep Cherokee – Liberty in its tuned format car for the US market and called the Overland. That base car from which the car has been modified is the 2011 Cherokee. The car is fitted with a 2.8-liter CRD 4-cylinder turbo diesel engine with a Selec-Trac II 4×4 system. The paint scheme of the car is a zebra safari. For suspension the car is fitted with ARB 3-inch and Old Man Emu shocks. The tires are a set of Mickey Thompson 265/75-R16 MTZ mounted on wheels made of steel. In the rear differential an ARB air locker has been incorporated and there is an on board air compressor which gives increased traction for the large dimensioned SUV. This is one of the six vehicles that would be displayed at the event.
The tuning firm has also given a number of underbody protection feature to the Overland and this includes skid plates for the SUV’s front suspension, transmission, and transfer case. Other features that one would find on the modified car are cargo tray liner, sill guards, front and rear tow hooks, slush mats and a new sport pedal kit.
