Buster Keaton was no doubt the king of silent film comedy, but we think the ad execs were reaching a bit by wrangling him into doing this commercial.

Found On eBay: 1982 Jeep Scrambler Ambulance Conversion

Mopar 2012 Jeep Mighty FC Concept Gallery

  I’ve always been a fan of the Jeep Forward Control and the Ford Econoline light pickup trucks from the 1960’s.

The cab utilizes a roof from the Mopar JK-8 conversion…

2012 Mopar Jeep JC-12 Pickup Truck Concept Gallery

Moab has become the Auto Show of choice for Mopar and Chrysler to unleash their hottest new concepts that hint to the future for the rugged off road brand. This year Jeep is not disappointing.

This shot from Automobile‘s Phil Floraday’s Twitter account shows that the Mighty FC is truly a Jeep’s answer for the Unimog, thought production in the States in…
