Doesn't Jeep do this every year? They build some really cool prototype and everyone cums in their pants then it never hits production.

Would be nice, but I know deep down it'll never happen.

Looks like a JK cab with the nose extension grafted in.

The Gladiator is quite cool!

Edit: Yep, read the links.

Quote:
The Jeep Forward Control was built from 1956 to 1965. To create a modern Forward Control, the concept team repositioned a Wrangler Rubicon's cabin ahead of the front axle, lengthened the wheelbase, and added a full-width, drop-side eight-foot cargo box. The cab has a roof from the Mopar JK-8 conversion kit, as well as a custom-designed front clip.

Make it into a regular truck and it would work perfect for hauling around canoes and tandem bikes.

You realize this whole website is catered to people who enjoy looking at and reading about cool, purpose built, one off vehicles- right?

Jeep skunk works guys fully get it. The only JK I've ever liked was that silver light weight job. And yes, that FC concept is so full of cool it's ridiculous.

itll never happen. just like how they kept saying there would be a Jeep pickup, and all they came out with was the JK8.


also, im not too familiar with the JKs; can anyone see anything crazy different underneath?? (other than the portals)

I do. I never said that the FC wasn't cool I just wish some of the concepts would make it to production for once.

Hell yes I'd rock one as a work truck. Jeep had the skunkworks JK truck at the car show here a couple weeks back, it was pretty damn sweet. I would seriously consider trading the Frontier on one of them if it were actually available for purchase.

A guy could probably buy two pretty nice Unimogs for that kind of money.

Give it a 4 cylinder TDI, a couple PTO's, with at least 1 being hydro, and America would have a challenger for the unimog.

Give it a manual trans, and a twin stick, and rip all the silly bells and whistles out of it, and start shipping them to dealerships!

I like the expo idea.

I'd cut off my left nut with a rusty butter knife for either one of those trucks.
