The new Jeep FC show truck looks pretty cool!

I think it would sell if it could pass modern impact standards and they offered a Kommandwagon (enclosed 5 door) version. Then again, I'm slightly biased :D

Looking at the available pictures it isn't clear how you get into it especially with the 38" tires. It definitely needs Unimog style wheel ring steps.

Here is some more information and pictures -

You could get a nice Pinzgauer for the cost of that front portal axel alone :o

They're 40" tires. But yeah, the wheel ring steps would be awesome.

I think if they want to give me the FC, I'll figure out how to get in it..What do you say, Chrysler, do we have a deal ? :lol:
Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear really bright, until they start talking
