The Mopar stand at this year’s SEMA Show is going to be epic.

AN EPIC Ram 1500 Rebel OTG (Off The Grid) concept will grace the Mopar stand at this year’s SEMA Show, standing alongside 13 other custom concepts and plenty of new 4x4 accessories built by the FCA-owned company.

The Rebel OTG will be joined by a Jeep Wrangler Rubicon dripping in Mopar kit, a re-imagined 1968 Dodge D200-series pick-up called the Mopar Lowliner concept, a Gladiator Scrambler, Gladiator J6 Moab concepts, and plenty more.

Mopar will have a total of 14 customised vehicles – in addition to a smorgasbord of equipment – on its stand in the South Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Centre.

“These vehicles showcase how Mopar is constantly expanding and exploring new ideas to meet the needs and fuel the imagination of our passionate fans,” said Mark Bosanac, Head of Mopar Service, Parts and Customer Care, FCA North America. “Whether it’s overlanding in remote locations or reimagining an alternative classic design history, Mopar has its customers covered.”

Using the 3.0-litre V6 EcoDiesel-powered 2020 Ram 1500 as a base, the Rebel OTG has been granted a two-inch ‘Mopar Concept’ lift, as well as beadlock wheels wrapped in 35-inch Goodyear rubber. Protection is afforded via flares and step-assist rock rails, while a concept rear bumper – adapted from a Ram 1500 Tradesman – relocates the exhaust and improves the vehicle’s departure angle.

Mopar accessories up front include a bumper with an integrated winch, a larger grille with RAM lettering and a snorkel. Down back, the rig gets a multifunction tailgate with 60/40 split swing-away doors, a bed rack system atop the tray and a rooftop tent with storable ladder.

Other gear includes a battery-powered cooler; a kitchen unit with a gas-powered stove, sink and on-board water system; storage facilities above the cabin; solar panels; an on-board air compressor; and LED lighting fore and aft. In addition to the winch, vehicle recovery is possible thanks to the addition of traction mats and a high-lift jack.
