Jeep Announced Six Jeep models get the Mopar Makeover for 2011

Jeep plans to show six new Mopar-tuned models at the annual Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, Utah.  Three of them are worth a look.

Jeep Wrangler Blue Crush
6.4L Jeep Wrangler Renegade
The extreme looking Jeep Wrangler Blue Crush has a 426-cubic-inch Hemi V8 capable of 540 horsepower.  It sits on monster truck-like 39-inch tires rely on custom drifeshafts and has a full roll cage.

The Jeep Wrangler Renegade is packing a 475-horsepower 6.4-liter V8 bolted up to a six speed manual transmission.  A four-inch suspension lift was also added to make room for 35-inch Mickey Thompson Baja Claw Radials.

Jeep Wrangler Pork Chop

The final one is called the Jeep Wrangler Pork Chop.  Apparently the vehicle is called the Pork Chop because all the fat has been trimmed.

It started off as a 4,240-pound Wrangler and then lost 850 pounds by losing the bumpers, doors and tailgate. The hood was swapped with a lightweight aluminum and carbon fiber unit that weighs all of eight pounds, while all four fenders were swapped with lightweight replacements. Mopar even ripped out all the carpeting, replaced the gas tank with a lighter unit and swapped out the factory seats for Sparco Chrono Road bucket seats.
