Jeep might have a truck in the works finally, but those not wanting to wait can order up an AEV Brute. This is an aftermarket conversion that starts with a Wrangler Unlimited SUV. AEV will take tht Wrangler, lengthen the chassis and graft on a truck bed out back.
The price of this awesome conversion is steep, the conversion itself costs $41,665 on top of the price of the Wrangler Unlimited base vehicle. You get a lift, 35-inch tires, winch, skid plates, and off-road lights for the price.
If you want more, you can ditch the standard V6 engine and shoehorn in a 5.7 or 6.4L Hemi V8 for more money. The problem is that this is the last year AEV will make the Brute and the order banks close on March 31 for good. I hope that the official jeep truck is as cool as the Brute.
