The Jeep CJ66 Concept will never be a production vehicle. The Mopar team started with a 1966 Jeep CJ body, altered it to fit on a Jeep TJ chassis (1997-2006 Wrangler), and equipped it with a Jeep JK (2007-2017 Wrangler) lights, bumpers, and hood, all painted in Copper Canyon.
The smaller Jeep on the bigger chassis led to interesting proportions in the back, almost giving it a little truck bed area behind the Viper seats. Mopar has filled that little cargo area with a huge 35 inch beadlock wheel/17 inch tire combo (BFG tires, JPP wheels) which matches the set on the ground and capped the whole vehicle with a roll cage, mandril-bent to match the windshield surround.
Since the CJ body seemed too tall after the vehicle was assembled, the crew trimmed the windshield line by 2 inches and on the sides, the Jeep CJ66 Concept has rock rails, wheel flares, and control switches for a well-integrated central tire inflation system. Oversized, concept fender flares defend against obstacles, along with Mopar 10th Anniversary Wrangler JK Rubicon Bumper Kits, JPP skid and front bumper plates, and custom-fit JPP rock rails.
Fog lamps are Mopar LEDs; the Warn winch has a fair lead adapter to guide the cable. The fuel cap was moved to sit inside the fender wheel-well.
