We were ready to pan the 2012 Jeep JC-12 concept as a just a reprisal of the Nukizer M715 concept, but the more I see of the JC-12 the more I like it. The Jeep J-12 concept is essentially an extended version of Mopar’s recently introduced JK-8 pickup conversion kit for the Jeep Wrangler.The rear of the vehicle’s frame is extended 18 inches, allowing the spare tire to be relocated under the bed floor and making the cargo box a full six feet in length. Just as we expect the production version of the Jeep Gladiator might have when it enters production. A custom hood and front fender set was created as a nod to aficionados of the beloved J-series pick up trucks.

The cabin of the J-12 concept has been “dressed down” in support of a basic truck theme, with the carpet being replaced by spray on truck bed liner, and the bucket seats re-crafted into a modern version of a bench seat, trimmed in white with a whimsical plaid pattern. Our favorite detail item is the compass shifter.

The plain chrome front bumper and 16-inch steel wheels with dog dish hub caps masks the J-12’s off-road muscle. A Mopar three-inch suspension lift kit, as well as Teraflex sway bars controlling ARB air-locker equipped Dynatrac D-44 and D-60 axle assemblies help keep the wheels turning.

Jeep® and Mopar have teamed up once again to produce a selection of concept Jeep vehicles for the 46th annual Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, Utah. The Jeep Mighty FC concept, Jeep J-12 concept and the Jeep Wrangler Apache are three of six new vehicles that will be shown to enthusiasts in Moab, March 31 – April 8. Look for more on all of these new vehicles later this week.

We asked MOPAR if the continued release of Jeep pickup truck variants and concepts hinted to a production model in 2015 they repsonded,

“We do make one, it’s the Mopar JK-8 kit! I’m guess you meant one from the factory though, right? If there was enough interest, we’re sure Jeep would look into making them! Until then, we’ll hook you up!”

But if the Mighty FC and the Jeep J-12 pickup are any indicator we expect a Jeep truck with the Nukizer style grille to appear when the new 2015 Jeep Wranglers roll off the assembly line in late 2014.
