They also teamed up with some well known brands in the overland industry to make it instantly ready for long range vehicle based adventure travel. Where would you take it?

Jeep® Farout concept

This go-anywhere, do-anything Jeep concept takes off-road exploration to the next level. An encore to last year's Jeep Wayout concept, the Jeep Farout concept benefits from Gladiator's class-leading 4x4 payload and the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V-6 engine's long-range fuel efficiency to go even further off the beaten path.

The main feature of this fully functional concept is a neatly contained, customized deployable roof-top tent in the form of an Adventure Trailers "Habitat". The spacious 16-foot-long by 7.5-foot-tall recreational residence opens and retracts in a matter of seconds. Once unpacked, it comfortably sleeps up to four.

Long gone is the cold, monochromatic look and feel of a traditional overlanding vehicle. The Farout's warm, inviting wood-lined interior features soft ambient lighting, a fully functional refrigerator and stove, plus hanging storage racks, built-in seats and table space. Inside the Farout's customized cab, outdoorsy fashion and style are celebrated with dark smoke blue leather, orange stitching and plaid flannel seat inserts.

Farout's exterior features a new "Earl" body color with chartreuse accents on the hood, rear tailgate tow hooks, springs, badging and shocks. Its rugged stature is emphasized with a Jeep Performance Parts two-inch lift kit, 17-inch matte charcoal rims, 37-inch Falken mud-terrain tires, a modified Gladiator Rubicon steel bumper equipped with a 12,000-lb. Warn winch, custom front and rear rock rails and FOX™ performance shocks to easily overcome obstacles. Its integrated roof-rack system allows for hauling additional gear topside.

Obviously an AT Habitat top, nice factory deal for our friends there. Any pics of the interior yet? It sounds interesting and so far this seems like a good package for the most part.

I too am curious to see the interior. Still trying to find a Habitat-type layout that suits 3+ sleepers w/o being totally spartan.
