Jeep Mighty FC
In April of 2012, Jeep took their concept car, the Mighty FC, out for a test run in Moab, Utah to prove the vehicles worth on the open terrain that it is intended for. This new truck is based on the Jeep Forward Control car of the late fifties and early sixties. The design of this Jeep truck is meant to help with maneuverability, a heady task for any pick-up truck. The design also gives the vehicle a distinctive appearance, unlike any other vehicle on the road today.
The FC truck showed off its capabilities in the rugged terrain of Moab. This unusual concept car is based on the 2012 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon, though the cab has been moved ahead of the front axle, the wheelbase has been lengthened, and a drop-side cargo box was added.
Though the vehicle is still in testing phases, the final version is likely to feature a Katzkin leather interior, Mopar’s new heavy-duty offset Portal Axles, King coil-over reservoir shocks, Hanson bumpers, a Warn 1.5 winch, a Corsa stainless steel exhaust system, and 40-inch tires mounted on custom Hutchinson 17-inch wheels. The exterior of this truck may look radically different from other pickups, but the Jeep runs like a dream over rugged areas.
