Anything AEV can share about new Jeep pickup ? With your tight relationship with FCA, one would think you would be involved in some way ?

I had previously heard they were staying away from a 4 door, so as not to compete with Ram, but a camouflaged shot just got released showing one. ??

Will AEV still build the Brute ? Is AEV building the pickup for Jeep or supplying parts ??

At least this is good inspiration for me to finish my Brute !

If only the towing/GVWR capacity will be high enough to make it usable. I sure hope that fleetside bed is only for testing. Would like to see something close to the BDC bed.

Looks suspiciously like a ram pickup bed, tailgate, and taillight cutouts.....

Its the real deal looks a lot like a Brute I believe the name used will be Scrambler. The bed is a Ram bed downsized for testing as all these mules are modified Jk's. All the interior shots have full on Jk interiors and door panels so its will be the same size as the JK.

What we know:

Aluminum hood/fenders
8 speed trans
Radius arm front suspension
Lighter frame

If AEV knew anything they couldn't share it. From the sources I know once FCA bought Jeep many of the contacts that AEV had inside of Jeep left (and some of them now work for AEV).

AEV is tight lipped enough about their own product releases that I am sure you won't hear anything one way or another on a Jeep product from them.

Assuming Jeep moves forward with a 4-door pickup, seems it would be a Golden opportunity for AEV to produce a single-cab pickup
