Why thank you very much! That is actually the exact look that we are were going for on this build. I have ONE Brute kit left in stock and I'm not sure AEV is planning to release anymore kits, so I am holding on to one for ONE LAST Brute build. I already know what I am going to build to. Stand by...

Ben

PS: I might be putting up my red one for sale soon.

LOL!!! That's always "catches" peoples eye. It is my "wife's". She wanted something to go with my Jeep's but not a "Jeep". 1972, 302, 3 on the tree and with only 32K miles.

Very nice! I like the colorization on the original ad .

Does it ever seen any dirt? Would you be opposed to a photo of it appearing in an upcoming Bronco book?

Thanks,
Todd Z.

Beautiful build (as always) Ben. When are you going to finally build up a 2-door Jeep?

Thank you!

And a 2 door JK? Not sure when, but I will no doubt! I've been thinking about that lately!
