It had dynatrac covers, so I'm guessing yes.

132K, I'm guessing all the options.

Was a good show. Although some of their wheeling techniques could use some work.

I would have loved to see the jeep tow the FJ though. LOL

It is a show and most of it is there for the entertainment factor. If they wheeled like normal people there wouldn't be many viewers.

Default pretty cool...

Overall, very entertaining. The AEV Brute performed well and was clearly a hammer. The Rover was surprising with all it's electronics and air bag suspension. AEV showed well... other than $132K price tag.

I agree, but at the same time they could have done just as well (if not better) with a 5.7 3.5 JK conversion, and still had money left over. I never did see the burnout on the show though that they posted online.

It had the Dynatrac front 44 housing, rear 60 with an E Locker. (axles and suspension where fine!) Was pretty much loaded, but I think they got that price from the Filson Edition Brute (our most expensive) which has custom paint and interior etc. I think that white one is about 110K which had about every option possible, I know it probably doesn't make a difference for someone spending that kind of money, but just to be accurate. It also had BFG 37x12.50s not 38s on it.

I guess its a good thing I didn't order some 38" BFGs after seeing the show for my Jeep.

Maybe they said 38 because they ran them at full street pressure?

I would hope they aired down for the off-road sections, but who knows with TV hosts. At least the Brute appeared to hold up better than the LR to the abuse. They didn't take it easy on those two vehicles at all.

For me, both the forums and AEV's main page were super-slow around 9:30PM ET. Hope the show brought them a ton of page views!
