What to do when you're sick of your JK Wrangler

Jeep engineers have built this Mighty FC concept as a tribute to the Jeep Forward Control that was built between 1956 and 1965. They used a 2012 Wrangler Rubicon as a platform. Underneath, the truck has a set of Mopar eight-lug portal axles, which are available you you and me for a combined price of $US23,500 plus shipping. The Mighty FC, which is almost certain never to go into production, rolls on 40-inch tyres riding on a King coil-over suspension. Here's more on the Mighty FC and a bunch of other new Jeep concepts (Thanks to Peter Vahry for forwarding the link.)
