For Jeep fans, the launch of Jeep’s official pickup truck just can’t come soon enough. Luckily for those impatient folk, American Expedition Vehicles offers their Brute Double Cab based on the Jeep Wrangler that could serve to satisfy those in the market for a reliable overland vehicle. However, this is the last year AEV will build the truck, taking orders up until March 31st.
Under the hood, each of the Brutes come with the option of either a 5.7 or 6.4-liter Hemi V8 replacing the standard 3.6-liter V6. They also lengthen the frame 39 inches to accommodate the composite bed that’s added to the build as well. Buyers will also notice a suspension lift, 35-inch tires, skid plates, off-road lights to keep the trail lit, and a warn winch to get themselves and others out of a bind if needed. And while it’s not the official Jeep pickup, the Brute certainly doesn’t skimp on true off-road features and looks. Prices start around $41,700. [H/T: AutoBlog]
