Jeep just unveiled its concepts for its 50th Annual Easter Jeep Safari and as usual, the company teases us with several concepts that we can only hope will hit production someday. One of our favorite reveals is their FC 150 (above), an update to their "Forward Control" model that updates the beloved truck with a 2005 Jeep Wrangler chassis, a 4.0-liter PowerTech I-6, and Dana front and rear axles.

Next up, is one of the most menacing looking options in the lineup, the Crew Chief 715. Many Jeep fans have been wishing for a pickup and we think this would definitely satisfy that appetite. Inspired by the classic military Jeeps of old, the pickup features off-road rock rails, winches for the front and rear bumpers, 20-inch beadlock wheels and 40-inch NDT military tires.

For the horsepower hungry, the company has whipped up a Hellcat-powered model called the Trailcat. The open-top model delivers serious muscle with a 707-hp 6.2L V8 HEMI with a proper six-speed manual transmission. Other details include a wheelbase that's stretched by 12 inches, LED headlamps, 17-beadlock wheels, and 39.5 inch BF-Goodrich Krawler T/A KX tires that are coupled with front and rear Dana 60 axles and Fox shocks.

View the gallery below to see the rest of the Jeeps including a modern update to the classic CJ-5 and a compact pickup based on the new Jeep Renegade.
