For the 46th Annual Moab Easter Jeep Safari, Jeep and Mopar brought out six concepts, with the most interesting design being the Mighty FC Concept.
Paying homage to the Jeep Forward Control built from 1956 to 1965, the Mighty FC features a full-size cargo bed with a custom front clip and roof from the Mopar JK-8 conversion kit. Massive 40-inch tires were wrapped around Hutchinson 17-inch headlock wheels giving it plenty of traction. And while the concepts certainly looked great, the Mighty FC decided to put on a show crawling through Moab.
The rock-ready concept had no issues taking on the rugged Moab terrain alongside its inspiration, a 1964 Jeep Forward Control.
This is one Jeep concept we would love see become a reality, the Mighty FC is definitely a winning design.

Jeep has teamed up with Chrysler’s special outfitting division, Mopar, to prepare six new Jeep concepts that will be shown off at the 46th annual Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, Utah.
Jeep released sketches of the concepts, and as can be expected they all retain the typical Jeep style, with some added flair to make each version individual. The Mighty FC actually looks like a small pickup truck of some kind, probably based on the Jeep Gladiator Concept.
The other two model sketches released by Jeep are called the Wrangler Apache and the J-12. The Wrangler Apache looks like another off road package for the Wrangler, based on the winch we see in the sketch. The J-12 looks like a throwback to the older styling of Jeep, losing some of the new rounded edges and going for the classic look.
