Leisure Wheels (South Africa) - - GEAR -

Per­haps the most fa­mous FC 4×4 of all time is the Jeep For­ward Con­trol, which was pro­duced by Willys in the 1950s and ’60s. Pro­duc­tion continued when Willys and Kaiser Mo­tors merged to cre­ate Kaiser Jeep. This par­tic­u­lar ve­hi­cle was un­veiled by Jeep in 2016 and is a stock 1960 FC-150 body, but with 2005 Wran­gler TJ frame un­der­neath. Power is pro­vided by a 4.0-litre AMC en­gine. Jeep also added a Dana 44 axle in the front, and Dana 60 axle in the rear. The FC-150 rides on 33-inch BFG mud-ter­rain tyres, and was given a Ru­bi­con 4:1 trans­fer case.
