2012 Moab Easter Safari: Jeep Mighty FC Concept

Article by Christian Andrei, on March 28, 2012

Built from 1956 to 1965, the Jeep Forward Control now gets a highly-applauded packaging. It keeps the overall length at a minimum for maneuverability. For raised utility, it comes with a full-length cargo box. For the year 2012, Jeep made a modern version of the Jeep Mighty FC concept. The design team acquired a 2012 Wrangler Rubicon and changed the position of the cabin above the front axle.

It also made the wheelbase longer and it got a custom built drop-side cargo box. The cab makes use of a roof from the Mopar JK-8 conversion kit and it also received a custom-designed front clip.

The interior was based on a Wrangler and has been improved with the bold heavy-duty Katzkin leather and a distinct color scheme.

The cargo area consists of a full-width, drop-side tray-style bed that is longer than eight feet. Its off-road performance is much improved due to its use of Mopar's new Portal Axle set. These offset axles provide the highest amount of ground clearance without needing excessive suspension lift. Mopar's Front Portal Axle (8-lug, part number P5155670) has an MSRP of $12,500.

Meanwhile, the Rear Portal Axle's (8-lug, part number P5155671) MSRP is $11,000. The axles are controlled with King coil-over assemblies along with beefy Teraflex control arms and track bars. It has a traction that’s handled by massive 40-inch tires covered at custom Hutchinson 17-inch beadlock wheels. The other Mighty FC highlights include King coil-over reservoir shocks, Hanson bumpers, a Warn 16.5 winch and a Corsa stainless steel exhaust system.
