Four Wheeler Magazine just updated their blog with a closer look at American Expedition Vehicles' new Jeep Wrangler JK Brute Double Cab Pickup, based on the Wrangler Unlimited chassis. This is simply the coolest pickup truck ever built.
There are other drool-worthy Jeep-based pickups available, including AEV's Jeep Wrangler TJ Brute Pickup and Mopar's own JK-8 Conversion, but none are up to the coolness level of the JK Brute Double Cab.
AEV went over the top with this particular one, including a 6.4-liter Hemi, Dynatrac Dana 44 and 60 axles, and AEV's own 4.5-inch suspension kit to fit 37-inch Super Swamper Irok Radials, but you'll be able to have them build one out of a bone-stock, factory-fresh Wrangler or in all likelihood, buy the parts as a kit to perform the conversion in your own garage or driveway. In any case, since it's based on the popular Jeep Wrangler JK Unlimited, you will have the world's largest selection of aftermarket parts to customize your Brute any way that suits you.
