It's epic just to have some news about it. I can't wait to see how it looks like either...

Probably just an old FC with modern engine (maybe diesel) and other stuff on it. A former Jeep engineer on Allpar has stated that a new vehicle designed like a FC would not pass current crash and safety regs.

Pics out!

It looks pretty BA. You can see the JK body on it and what looks to be an extended bed. The red one is called an F-12 concept, also seems to have a JK body(doors and such)

I think the J-12 is one of the best in the line up. Maybe not the most capable, but the Manche did great off road. A full size diesel Jeep pick-up? Sitting on 1 tons? That's sell like dollar draft night

I just saw the Yahoo! news of these two concept trucks. Call me crazy, but I would LOVE to have the FC!

Which means none for us, unless they offered it as a body kit for an existing vehicle. in that case... it would cost easily double what current Jeeps go for...

And it isnt just safety regs, its CARB as well.

I'm not sure what they're going for with all the "we'll never make it, but we'll show it off" teasing...

How do all the newer "Cab over" trucks pass crash/safety regulations ?(UD's, Hino's, GMC's, etc)
