Nope! Looks like you guys might need some more clues!

It's inspired by something from Jeeps past and could be in its future too...

Keep guessing! Im working on it right now...at this rate I'll have it finished by the time you guess what it is!

Just in case you missed it... It is a JEEP but to make it from a Wrangler takes a LOT of cutting and re-arranging...

I do have some, but I just use them in my builds. I have resin 2 1/2 ton axels, but the rest I build myself per project. I have started making larger offroad tires and wheels, but just don't have the time to keep working on them yet.

Lol! Nope! Though I did see a widened 6x6 Jeep prototype firm just after the War. The inspiration for this mod comes from something Jeep sold in the '50's and '60's...

Well I think you had better start paddling...

BUT you are getting very WARM! Well sort of...

I didn't even know about these until you mentioned it here, so it's not a fleet van!

It's going to be a Forward Control, inspired by the FC Concept.

Finally!  Yes you got it!

Lots of cutting...

Here is where I got up to by Thursday...

It's looking good (better than the photos) and is based on the 2005 Wrangler rather than the current version.

Phew! now I can post in the custom section!

I didn't know they made them either until I saw pictures of the concept version(blue one above). It's called the Jeep Mighty FC. The front and rear axles are "portal" axles and cost $23,000! You can order them as an option for a Wrangler if you want....
