A “peekaboo” cutout in the hood and gasser-style downturned open headers add to the vintage hot rod feel.This Wrangler-based concept features a longer wheelbase, with trimmed front and rear body and a chopped hard top and windshield.via: Car TV

An open top and open windows allow for full enjoyment of Quicksand’s sound and wind-in-your-face freedom.Inside, the minimalist interior features red accents, two front low-back bucket seats, flat aluminum door panels, tilt-out windshield glass and a chrome roll bar.


While the Quicksand was made for wheeling in sand, its off-road credentials ensure that it is fully capable in any terrain. Its staggered tire setup features 32-inch BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain KM2 tires in the front and 37-inch BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain KM2 tires in the rear, and coilover shocks, all on 18-inch vintage “kidney bean” alloy wheels.via: Car TV
