Chrysler rolled into Moab with truckloads of “Moparized” Jeeps and wicked Ram Trucks meant to the turn heads of fans at the 44th annual Moab Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, Utah.
“Our customized production vehicles show how Mopar can accessorize Jeep and Ram vehicles that are on the road today while our image vehicles showcase directions we could take in the future,” said Pietro Gorlier, President and Chief Executive Officer – Mopar Service, Parts and Customer Care, Chrysler Group LLC. “We will gauge reaction to these vehicles. And as we develop our next generation of new Mopar parts and accessories, we will listen closely to this dedicated group of hard-core off-road enthusiasts.”
The Mopar Underground design team is a small group of dedicated engineers, designers and fabricators who are led by Mark Allen, Chief Designer – Head of Jeep Design Studio, Chrysler Group LLC. The Mopar design team has been customizing production vehicles since 2002 and has introduced nearly 20 concept vehicles to enthusiast crowds at the Moab Jeep Safari.
The Mopar off-road engineering team is led by Keith Montone, Manager – Mopar Jeep and Ram Off-road Engineering, Chrysler Group LLC. This experienced group of vehicle engineers is dedicated to providing Jeep and Ram customers with the best off-road parts and accessories. The team has introduced many new parts and played a key role in developing the first aftermarket lift kits available from an automotive manufacturer.
“Moab is a proving ground for us to test our vehicles on extreme trails alongside our customers,” said Allen. “We will take all of the feedback we get from our customers right back to the design studio with us.”

Off-Road Industry Magazine names Alloy USA Yoke Kits one of the “10 Best” products of 2010! This is what they had to say:
Suwanee, GA –For years Alloy USA has been the predominant supplier of Chromoly axles for off road enthusiasts looking to increase their axle strength and spline count. Now Alloy USA is using this same great forging technology to produce 4140 Chromoly axles in stock spline counts. Built with the occasional off-roader in mind, these great axles offer unparalleled strength both on and off road, but without the added expense of having to upgrade to a 30-spline differential. High tensile strength 4140 Chromoly is heat-treated twice and induction hardened to produce these heavy-duty axles that are up to 35% stronger than stock 1040 axles. The shafts are then precision CNC machined and magnaflux inspected for cracks before receiving a slick black anodized finish. Each axle shaft is backed by Alloy USA’s exclusive ten-year warranty! Our axle shaft kits include everything you need to complete the job: both passenger and drive side axle shafts, seals, bearings and wheel studs.
