If you’ve ever seen any of the pickup trucks that American Expedition Vehicles has made, you’ve probably noticed that they have what you might call a signature style – lift kits, beefy tires, bed-mounted racking, intake snorkels, etc. And in no way is that a bad thing. How could it be, with something as amazing as their new Recruit Ram 1500 Pickup Truck?
While it started as a stock pickup, the modifications make this bad boy almost unrecognizable. They include the brand’s signature DualSport SC Suspension (giving the truck a 4″ lift), beefier Mesa wheels and BF Goodrich KM2 Mud-Terrain tires, Bilstein 5100 series shocks that were specially tuned by AEV, skid plates, and a 4 mm-thick stamped steel premium bumper. And that’s all mated to a WARN winch on the front end, a premium leather interior, and a heat-reduction hood to help cool the 395-horsepower V8 engine underneath it. If there’s another turnkey pickup out there that’s more capable than this one, we’ve yet to come across it. Including the vehicle price, this truck starts at $46,645.
