Video: Jeep Mighty FC Concept Conquers the Moab Desert

Off-Road

This is a great chance to check out one of the year’s top concepts in full flow.

One of the stars of this year's Easter Jeep Safari was the company's Mighty FC Concept, a modern recreation of the Jeep Forward Control, which was built from 1956 to 1965. Jeep started with a 2012 Wrangler Rubicon and repositioned the cabin over and ahead of the front axle. They then lightened the wheelbase, and added a custom built drop-side cargo box. The cargo area has a full-width, drop-side tray-style bed that's more than eight feet in length.

Inside, Jeep used a snowboard bag, of all things, for the seat inserts and arm rests, helping to create a playful interior that belies its serious, austere facade.
