Year after year the crazy technicians of Jeep and Mopar come together to introduce some very interesting conceptual and massive off-road vehicles in the Annual Moab Easter Jeep Safari, which is held in Moab, Utah. This year the group has come prepared with Mighty FC concept and 5 other Jeep concepts to participate in the safari. Mopar has also made an announcement to create and off-road division to produce authentic jeep accessories and parts.
Mike Manley, the President and CEO, Jeep said, “This safari is a great opportunity for the firm to connect with its core aficionados and it looks ahead to showcase the recent possible production and enhanced ideas. At the same time an instant feedback from the most talented 4×4 aficionados of the world will help the team of Jeep to improve its products”.
Anallegiance to the Jeep Forward Control, which was manufactured from 1956 to 1965, the Mighty FC Concept is a very interesting conceptual jeep vehicle. The cargo-bay in this vehicle is of the same size as its previous models while the overall length has been shortened. This same old size cargo-bay is achieved by constructing the cabin right above the front axle of the vehicle, which is not done usually. A custom made cargo-box has also been fitted on the drop-side.From the JK-8 conversion kit of Mopar brings the roof and a front clip, which is a custom based design for the cabin. With more ground clearance without any major modification on the suspension, the all-new Mopar Portal Axle do wonders.The massive bite for traction is mainly because of the huge 40-inch tire wrapped around 17-inch of Hutchinson headlock wheels. The axles on which the wheels move is controlled by a set of assemblies of King coil-over with arms and track bars controlled by Teraflex.This is also important to mention here the price of the axles fitted on Mighty FC Concept. The front axle costs $12,500 and the rear axle costs $11,000 only.
Pietro Gorlier, the President and CEO of Mopar said, “The firm is knocking into a growing pattern among the extreme Jeep aficionados who have an insatiable desire for stronger efficiency on the trail. This very year, Mopar will be introducing its customers to all-new Pro 60 portal axles with a new HEMI conversion kit; this will be showcased in the new vehicles. In addition to this, to maximize the presence of the company further ahead in the off-road segment of the automobile market, the firm is in the process to create a Mopar Off-Road Division to cultivate authentic Jeep accessories and parts.”
Other than Mighty FC Concept, the five off-roaders unveiled were Grand Cherokee Trailhawk concept, Wrangler Apace concept, J-12 Conversion concept, Mopar Accessorized Wrangler and Wrangler Traildozer concept. All of these will be competing in the Safari. The safari participants from other teams will definitely have to go through a hard time if they want to win from there monsters on wheels.
