Jeep J-12 Concept
The Jeep J-12 concept is essentially an
extended version of Mopar’s recently introduced
JK-8 pickup conversion kit for the Jeep
Wrangler. With a new 2012 Wrangler Unlimited
as the starting point, the rear of the vehicle’s
frame is extended 18 inches, allowing the spare
tire to be relocated under the bed floor and
making the cargo box a full six feet in length. A
custom hood and front fender set was created
as a nod to aficionados of the beloved Jeep
Gladiator series trucks.
Off-road muscle has been improved
with the addition of the new Mopar
three-inch suspension lift kit, as well
as Teraflex sway bars controlling
ARB air-locker equipped Dynatrac
D-44 and D-60 axle assemblies.
Traction is handled through classic
36-inch tires mounted on 16-inch
Further highlights include a Mopar fuel-filler door,
Mopar slush mats, Tom Woods custom driveshafts and
Katzkin seat trim.
The J-12 also sports a retro Rhino grille.
Jeep Mighty FC Concept
The Jeep Forward Control was
built from 1956 to 1965 and
offered a clever packaging
It kept overall length at a
minimum for maneuverability but
maintained a full-length cargo box
for utility. For 2012, Jeep has
created a modern version of this
classic: the Jeep Mighty FC
Off-road function is dramatically improved with
the addition of Mopar’s new Portal Axle set.
These offset axles offer the greatest amount of
ground clearance without requiring excessive
Mopar’s Front Portal Axle (8-lug, part number
P5155670) is available at a Manufacturer’s
Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $12,500, and
the Rear Portal Axle’s (8-lug, part number
P5155671) MSRP is $11,000.
The axles are controlled with King coil-over
assemblies along with beefy Teraflex control
arms and track bars. Traction is handled by
massive 40-inch tires mounted on custom
Hutchinson 17-inch beadlock wheels.
Other Jeep Mighty FC highlights include King
coil-over reservoir shocks, Hanson bumpers, a
Warn 16.5 winch and a Corsa stainless steel
The Mighty FC also sports a 16,500
pound Warn winch.
