I like it!!!!  :-)  Wonder if hubby will let me sale the house to get one?? lol...  I like the longer wheel base - and wow - all that storage space in the trunk.  I didn't see any mention of lockers; but dont think it would even need them.    It looks like the interior is sprayed with bed liner too.  Cool  8)

How do you get in it? And where did they move the engine? I'm guessing it's a mid-engine vehicle?

How do you get in it?

It looks like (to me) that the front fender is in 2 pieces, so when you open the door the fender swings away.  Then I would guess you just put a foot on the tire and climb in.... or.... stand back and take a running leap!  You should see the technique I mastered to get into my jeep with a straight skirt on - Cause I wouldn't have running boards, cause running boards don't belong on a Jeep IMHO... :-)

The original fc-150s would tip foward if you hit the brakes too hard. :o Then then bulit the 170 version that was a little longer and had a 6 cylinder which corrected the tipyness.

it is my understanding that the engine is in its usual position. Only the cabin has been moved forard.
In reality Jeep copied a Wrangler mod that some do. Converting it to FC (forward control)


(doesn't look like a toad?)

BTW they are doing the monstricity to LandRovers too!

@ Greekman, I don't think Land Rover has produced 101 Forward Control vehicles since 1978.  Unlike the modified Jeep wrangler FC, the Land Rover 101 FC's were not actually modified Land Rover 110's or Series III, but were instead purpose built military vehicles.

No, no... I meant coverting standard Land Rovers to FC....nothing like this if it is what you mean, but real conversion.
ui.e. there is but 10 inches of the bonnet left..

I do not have the time to dig up the pics/article I saw....
