There’s love a first site and then there are the emotions that I felt when I rounded a corner at the 2014 SEMA show and saw the amazing creation that lies before you on these electronic pages. This Jeep FC 170 was built by the employees of Daystar Products, an industry leading supplier for the off road market with a wide variety of lifts, leveling kits, and other products in their lineup. They decided to take on this Jeep FC 170 build as a literal team and the result is pure, unadulterated BangShifty perfection. From the green and white paint scheme to the chromed components on the tracks that the Jeep rides on, to the fact that there’s 345ci of late model Hemi engine to send this baby down the road, we’ve got no nits to pick with any of it.
Kelly Herring of Daystar rushed to my aid as the color drained from my face and I began to clutch my chest while peering at the awesome truck and he explained that every nut and bolt on the truck was touched by Daystar employees. That’s fantastic on several levels. The first is that it shows the company is manned by enthusiasts that not only understand the products they sell but really love the industry they are in. The second is that these people have great skills and they were all put to great use on the build. We’re going to do a much more in-depth feature on the build after SEMA with photos that take you from the start to the glorious end of this project. We wanted to show you the truck for now and get you freaking out about it like I did because it really is that good.
The truck will be appearing all over the country and we’re going to beat up the Daystar people for any information they have on the tour schedule so you can see this fantastic creation when it rolls into your town. Since SEMA technically hasn’t started yet, I can’t say that this is my favorite vehicle of the week but I will say that the rest of the place has a hell of a job to do to show me something more fantastic than a hemi powered FC170 on tracks. Am I right?
