Sleeping in a certain spot is not meant to be a deterant. You sleep on top of the Jeep (or in a high hammock between trees) for protection.

I agree about the food storage part though.

Why? You could get a deuce and a half for $3-$5k, and have $65,000 left for mods.

I realize it's not going to keep a bear from eating your ass if it really wants to, but it is a measure in trying to protect yourself from many elements -- bears included. I'll tell you this: if I knew there were bears in the vicinity I'd much rather be sleeping sleeping on an elevated platform rather than the ground.

This is the Mopar original Jeep Sand Trooper Concept that they have at SEMA. Didn't see it here. Apparently they were talking up the "new" off road division at Mopar there as well!

That is pretty cool.

I exercised my Google-fu...it's the Strike Force Zebra Stealth Grille LED Light Bar Mount.

That's there logo on the lower panel below the antenna and that's also their new-ish half doors in the picture you posted.
