Remember, that Jesse is building an FC-170 FC Tour Jeep that has a 10 foot bed similar to the other two FC Tour Jeep vehicles. The typical wheelbase is 106". His
frame will be 112" and the area behind the rear wheels will be shorter, but the bed will still be 10 foot.
The seats Jesse is using came from a school bus.
Jesse's rear bed will incorporate doors to make getting in & out of the Jeep easier. It will also have a tailgate and a row of removable seats to make hauling items a snap!
This is a picture of one of the bed doors that will open. Jesse will have four of the in the bed and access to the rear row of seats will be from the middle door.
This is one of the rear fixed panels that incorporates the fuel filler neck.
This view shows all the driver's side doors and rear panel installed along with the tailgate.
