    Personally I'd rather armor the rear with some sliders then to get high centered on a speed bump lol

    I watched a video showing that there was actually 3 AEV built ram trucks (propectors and the such) on that trailer as well (with pictures)

    Maybe it’s possible jeep is working with AEV?

    I have asked AEV directly numerous times, and they point blank told me that they do not work with Jeep at all.

    They used to. Jeep used renditions of their hood and bumpers on almost all special editions until Jeep developed their own starting on the 10th anniversary Rubicon back in 2013. They have still used the bumpers and hood since then but on a more limited basis. Beyond that AEV doesn't work with Jeep. Esp not to develop new vehicles.

    I guess I should have said that they were a jeep supplier, but dont work with jeep for R&D, or get any sort of information to develop products (like bypassing encryptions to create a procal, etc). Thats what they told me.

    I'm suspecting the wheelbase will be close to a Brute, which is already pretty damn long at 139"...and yes, ALL pickups have a lousy departure angle...if you want less overhang, you're going to have to get out the sawzall...what I'm about to do to my Brute. The only way to get better breakover angle is to mount 40's and a decent suspension lift...after all, it is a truck

    Yes, and a hell of a capable truck. It may be the best of both worlds, for some people. I’m kind of excited to see one in action.
