Sand people rejoice. The Mopar Customized Jeep Wrangler Sand Trooper, originally introduced at SEMA last year, made a prominent appearance at NAIAS today.

And in the conquering department? There’s a Hemi V8, which spits out 375 horsepower, along with five extra inches of ground clearance. Most importantly, it hauls four and leaves plenty of room for bug-out bags.
