I'd ditch the hardtop and repaint the body. Or at the very least get rid of the go fast stripe.

i'd contact Chrysler and tell them someone up in marketing is not listening to the Mopar Underground Skunkworks team nor looking at thier blueprints well-enough and to take it back then try harder ..




(jokin' it's alright just not the level of 'Chief' the concept brings so seems unfitting or something I can't pin my finger on )

That Jeep definitely deserves a body lift and some 22" rockstar wheels.

Will be a big seller if there are upgrade options to solid body color and black hardtop.

That is an available color for 17'... with no stripes and black or body color top. I almost bought one but decided to keep thrashing on my 2012.

the two-tone ," throwback"ish color scheme and white hardtop don't look so bad after a while ; I can certainly see this all faded and with a 2decade old patina and imagine it being pretty sought after in around 2037-2047 .
I am of the opinion that a more ' Indian Blanket ' ( pardon the term) type of stripe - like the old Chief had - would be cooler . Hello...@Extreme_Terrain ....2018 vinyl idea!

So FCA took the time to build the Wrangler Chief concept and then said, "People love it, paint a stocker that color and don't forget the stripe". I don't get it.

The front end of the Chief would have sold millions millions.

I just can't stop looking at the concept... I haven't seen that until now... I want it so bad.. I can't stop imagining how sick it would be to get that grill, hood, and front fenders (no flare) on my 2 door...

you might think differently if you see the interior. It is all done-up like a Tiki doll /Surfer theme.
I am all for surfin' brah, but not on a badass Jeep concept. Search google images for the Interior of Jeep Chief Concep...
it looks a little like Spicolli puked inside...

I think you may be able to buy a fiberglass front clip on the Chief to install on your Wrangler. As far as the first pic., I don't like appearance packages that just sell you stickers. What good is that. I want things to get me further down the trail.

Here is a link to buy the front clip ::: Jeep® JK Wrangler M7© front conversion kit / by Thaler Design :::

$6500 for a fiberglass hood and front fenders is pretty excessive for what it is. $1995 is probably more reasonable.

A cool company called Bawarrion makes a wicked front clip but it isn't very "Chief" esque, not cheap nor is it as much a retro thing as much as a modern spin on tsome of the older elements from the trucks.
I like it but I like their beadlocks more.

@j3ff3ry_j33p I think the Thaler kit Fusion mentioned is the same thing...
