Jeep FC 150
The Jeep FC 150 is a true American workhorse. It is rich with heritage and built to tackle anything. Its original build was from 1956-1965, and was based on the CJ-5. The FC 150’s length was kept to a minimum for easier navigation, but contains a full-length cargo box for utility.
The FC 150’s exterior features the original steel body, but under the hood has been revitalized with a 2005 Jeep Wrangler chassis altered to accept a Dana 44 front axle, Dana 600 rear axle and 17-inch white steel wheels wrapped in 33-inch BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain T/A KM2 tires.

It is powered by a 6.2 liter- HEMI Hellcat V-8 engine, and mated to a 6-speed manual transmission with a custom shifter ball displaying an embossed Hellcat logo. The wheelbase had to be stretched an additional 12-inches to fit the 707-horsepower Hellcat engine into the Trailcat. Other exterior enhancements include a power-done vented hood, satin black grille, LED headlamps, fog lamps and rock rails.
The Trailstorm is the last of the concept vehicles, but is the best vehicle for exploring off the beaten path.
