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.

1st one- 1989 Cherokee Laredo. 12 great years
2nd one- 2001 Cherokee Limited. Got it before they were gone.

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

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.

Im the guy who makes new gauges, check out our gallery at Teamadw.com

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)
