1997 TJ Summit

In '02 a Jeep TJ SUT concept was unveiled by Chrysler, it was met with great acceptance from the industry but unfortunately never saw production. From rock crawling to rock hauling this new concept production conversion Jeep SUT is up to the task! The Road Armor design team met a daunting design and prototype timeline and produced the first prototype Summit SUT in five weeks, just in time for a debut at Easter Jeep Safari in Moab Utah.

The Summit SUT sports several advanced features over the Chrysler prototype SUT: The half cab is three inches longer to allow increased clearance, like the Jeep Gladiator concept the half cab features quarter windows to eliminate blind spots. The Summit features a full 6’ aluminum bed with minimized wheel wells and a full 4’ wide tailgate. The bed’s tailgate is locked/unlocked via remotely operated solenoid control latches. The rear corners feature frenched-in euro-style clear stop, turn, and tail LED lights along with clear white LED backup lights. Recessed mounted side marker LED lights are also incorporated.

The prototype Summit debuted at Easter Jeep Safari in March 2005. The project vehicle has several custom features:
Custom King Racing 10” coil-overs in the rear and 12” coil-overs in the front. Custom front and rear four link suspension providing 10” of lift to clear 38” Interco SSR’s on American Racing Mojave 17” wheels. The Summit also has Dana 44’s and front and rear ARB air lockers. The vehicle has a 118” wheelbase. Corbeau VX2000 racing seats along with Corbeau five point racing harnesses. A frame mount competition half cab roll cage was installed. The Summit was on display all week in Moab and ran the trails during the event. It also showcased at the 2005 SEMA show in Las Vegas.

This is the original Summit.
