As a young boy growing up on a farm we had a ‘47 Willys and the neighbor had an FC150. How we survived to be adults is remarkable. You are definitely right on the FC crumple zone! We smacked the dash/windshield with our faces many times driving through the woods. :cwl::cwl: Of the current concepts, the Wagoneer would be special. My dad bought one in 1964 and I even won a trophy at the drag strip with it.Anyway, as far as I know, every concept they make is robust enough to ride the trails out there. I’ve certainly seen several different ones doing it in YouTube videos.
I have a special place in my heart for the FC Jeeps, but I’m sure safety requirements make it impossible for them to be made new. When you’re the crumple zone, bad things happen.
