The other day I raved about the Jeep Forward Control concept — the Mighty FC, as it’s known. Well, Scott Brady, the publisher of Overland Journal and Expedition Portal, has taken it for a first drive.

What do you want first the good news or the bad news? The bad news is that he reports that it will never (his italics) go into production. The good news is that he says it’s amazing fun to drive and extraordinarily capable. Does the idea that it will never be built make the good news moot?

I’m sure that if enough people clamored for this truck, Jeep would build it. There was a time when VW said it would never build another Beetle.

Anyway, congratulations on a great concept Jeep! You hit the nail on the head.
