You might think that Jeep submerged in their past too often to stay in touch with their enthusiast base. The fact is that the old stuff is still pretty cool, and the concept cars like the Mighty Jeep FC – recently presented at the Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, Utah – is just one of the ways that consumer brand on back to its core . Even if it's just sitting still, the awe factor of the Mighty FC's incredible. It's big, intimidating and useful. It has huge tires, and you know it can crawl over everything because it is a Jeep. For those who do not drink around, or even from a baby bottle in the late 1950s, the original Willys and Kaiser forward control vehicle was built in 1956. Intended as. Military and utilitarian vehicle, the design for a larger, full-length cargo box that was made perfectly for fire trucks, tow trucks and dump trucks Jeep concept version is definitely not a restoration but a modernized version with a 2012 Wrangler Rubicon chassis and V-6 engine to make it reliable. Jeep Wrangler factory engineers combines the cabin with the Mopar JK8 truck conversion kit to give it added the appropriate appearance, but also other modifications. The wheelbase has been stretched and a separate cargo box attached with drop side tray and a cargo area that measures more than 8 feet long. Climbing in the Mighty FC concept gives the first hint of his unique stature. To get it, you have to get on a bike and get your way in a taxi, which sits several inches above Mopar aftermarket portal axles, eight-lug heavy equipment is used both front and rear, providing additional ground clearance. Once inside, you realize how much you sit. The interior is small, but the two-tone Katzkin leather seats, things easily and go along with the retro theme.
Although intimidating at first., It only takes a few minutes to become accustomed to go a few feet higher than any one else, and this is even more pronounced without hood-to-peer over Equipped with King coil-over reservoir shocks and BFGoodrich 40-inch diameter tires mounted on 17-inch Hutchinson beadlock wheels, the Mighty FC will also crawl through the difficult terrain in Moab. It's easy to climb over steep slick rock and swam well over deep sand. Traveling on steep hills is to say the least, say an uncomfortable feeling, especially when the 40-inch rubber bottom aired for better traction. Also, Mark Allen, Head of Jeep Design, he had mentioned a few "uncomfortable" moments while. Straight down on the dirt during a steep descent But it only takes a few minutes to get used to it, Mighty FC as soon as you realize an efficient, reliable ride. The Teraflex control arms and track bars to help the vehicle stable, enabling the vehicle to feel predictable. The drive is also very quiet, due in part to the Corsa stainless steel exhaust system, which also helps give the Mighty FC additional power to climb steep hills in a low gear. One might expect that the vehicle is heavy, but it feels lighter and more agile with the articulation and traction that you would expect from a Jeep. Jeep engineers like to give her a dull utilitarian concept truck color, but when accented with a Hanson front bumper, and a 16.5-pound Warn winch, the Mighty FC is definitely the agreement of the hardcore Jeep owners who are around the vehicle full when it was on display. We enjoyed driving the truck and see what Jeep engineers loved the most about the project. These concept vehicles are exercises in design and chassis development only, but we could not help but think that would be the perfect Mighty FC chase truck be any desert off-road racing team. In the meantime, the Mighty FC will drool over the people and the opportunities presented by Jeep and his team of engineers that are always banned in search of the next cool idea.

The Jeep Wrangler chassis was stretched and with King coil-over, reservoir shocks and Teraflex control arms fitted. The Mopar portal axles give the truck extra ground clearance without lift kit and paste the cargo load capabilities.
