    Mighty FC Mopar Underground Concept Truck

    The Mopar Underground Mighty FC

    Debuted at the 2012 Moab Easter Jeep Safari, the Mighty FC or, Forward Control concept truck was designed by the Mopar Underground team and was by far the most impressive and different concept vehicle I have seen to date. With retro styling borrowed from the original Willys/Kaiser Forward Control truck built between 1956 to 1965, this new rendition of the FC was built off a JK Wrangler frame and made to be bad to the bone with with EVO MFG coil overs and Dynatrac Portal Axles.

    Here are a few shots of the Mighty FC from the 2012 Moab Jeep Safari - Man, do I ever love this thing...

    I wouldn't complain if Jeep decided to put this into production in stead of the J12 But where's the Fuel door?

    Camping would be soo much more fun!

    Agreed! This thing was awesome! Glad we took the time to go over and check it.

    I feel like I'm playing where's Mirek with those pictures. LOL!

    The fuel fill is between the rear crossmember and the spare tire behind the tailgate.

    That's a pretty cool placement idea! thanks for the info I love the brain candy that the Underground team comes up with!

    After looking at one of the pics, this bad boy would definitely need a snorkel or some revision... the air filter looks like it doesn't have much more clearance than the axles, which means heaving fording is kinda outta the question. can anyone shed some light?

    Forgive the expression, but this is some heavy Jeep-Porn. Thanks WOL! Wow just when I thought the J12 was a badass concept. I would gladly take one of these over the J12. What an outstanding looking piece of metal, glass and rubber. I need some alone time now....

    I've had many a dream about walking out to my driveway to find the Nukizer, FC, and Hurricane (even though it has IS, it is still bad-ass) waiting for me.

    A somewhat serious question. What happens to these concept vehicles? Do they just get scrapped or do they ever hit the auction block?

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
