2018 Easter Jeep Safari: Safari swag

17 Jun 2018 Gear

2018 Easter Jeep Safari Safari

The best kit from the Easter Jeep Safari’s manufacturer show

Trail oven

The guys at Black Forest, a subsidiary of Webasto, got tired of eating cold meals on the trail and created this handy trail oven. It easily mounts on Jeeps with the 3.6-litre V6 (other applications forthcoming) and is perfect for heating snags or burritos.

Camp kitchen

For the Jeep-driving outback gourmet, MORryde developed a slide-out camp kitchen and rear gate storage. The stove tray folds into the fridge slider and the storage cubby provides additional workspace and a place to store recovery gear or a mess kit.

Tyre rack

The Bugoutrack tyre-mounted rack attaches with a ratchet strap and is handy for securing quickly needed items such as recovery straps (or an Esky full of coldies).

Atlas new kit

The Atlas transfer case, by Advanced Adapters, has long been the go-to solution for bulletproof gear reduction. The company tells us they are near completion on a version for the ZF 850RE 8-speed automatic, standard transmission on the Wrangler JL.

Shocks

Leading the charge on Jeep-specific adjustable shocks, Falcon (a subsidiary of Teraflex) recently introduced its 2.5-inch Series 3 Piggyback. A large aluminium dial allows for 10 damping settings in two ranges and the 0.75-inch shafts should hold up to any trail abuse.

Side tanks

If your extended outback travel requires heaps of fuel, MORryde has a side-mount jerry can tray to help boost range. Available for driver or passenger side applications, the tray will provide an extra 20 litres close at hand.

Rock jocks

Currie Enterprises began in the drag racing scene but developed into a premier purveyor of bulletproof axles. Their Rock Jock Series (Dana 44, 60, and 70 equivalent) is standard equipment for many Moab Jeepers.

Sliding tray

This aluminium sliding tray, a prototype from CargoGlide, has promise. It pulls out and locks in place for easy access to gear, and the company states it will mount to most aftermarket roof racks.

Pop-up tent

Ursa Minor Vehicles has adapted its pop-up rooftop abode to the Jeep Wrangler JK. With a comfortable bed and direct access to the driver’s seat, it offers many advantages over a standard roof tent. We’re told a version is in the works for the new JL as well.

Show stop
Walking the Jeep Safari vendor show, which features hundreds of manufacturers from the world over, is a relaxing way to spend an afternoon.
