Jeep Mighty FC Roundup

The custom and concept rigs that are rolled out every year at the Moab Easter Jeep Safari always generate a lot of interest and coverage. The Jeep Mighty FC Concept that rolled into Moab earlier this month may be one of the most drool-inducing examples yet. Articles, photo galleries, and driving reviews are all over the web. As expected, the Mighty FC is also generating a chorus of requests by enthusiasts for the vehicle to be produced.

While it’s unlikely that the FC will ever make it to the showroom floor, there is probably an aftermarket or customizer opportunity here somewhere. In the meantime, here’s a short list of reviews and photos to feed the FC fetish:

Road Trip Report – Moab

For reasons too numerous to mention, Moab is still very close to the top of my list of favorite places on earth.

I recently had the opportunity to pass through on a business trip (really, I was working) and enjoy some warm weather wheelin’.  I even had the benefit of having Spinny along for entertainment and slave labor.

We enjoyed a blurry night out among the locals, followed by a near-epic day of ‘wheelin that included Klondike Bluffs, Gemini Bridges, and a section of Gold Bar Rim.

The Nismo performed admirably and I finally got to feel the benefit of all the upgrade$.  Proof that I didn’t do it for looks.

Non 4×4 highlights included dino tracks, desert/mountain goats, blooming prickly pears, and the usual canyon country scenery.  Photographic evidence follows.
