  • Which manufacturers (if any) would you like to see AEV partner up with?

    If AEV were to expand to incorporate vehicles other than Jeeps, which ones should we consider? Why?

    First, I would hate to see that! But in just pure speculation if that was to happen, then I would see the Toyota FJ as the next good testbed for AEV. That platform seems to be kind of the equivalent to the Wrangler Unlimited.

        I would hate to see this happen,providing Jeep only products is one reason AEV is so cool.

          If Jeep went out of business, you should keep making parts and accessories only for Jeeps. Maybe expand to the other Jeep models.

              I voted for the the FJ but here is my list of vehicles that I think would do well.

              FJ
              Toyota Tacomas
              Landrover (especially if they ever bring back the Defenders)

                I voted for Land Cruiser and Other.... but, like Beowulf, I'd really like to see you do something with the Toyota Tacomas.

                  None. Jeep might switch owners but I doubt it will disappear any time soon. Jeep has probably the biggest automotive brand equity in the world... and the largest aftermarket support and one of the most recognizable names.

                    I hope you continue to make parts for Jeep but I do think the FJ would be the best fit if Jeep were not around any longer.

                      Take a GOOD LOOK at the Nissan Xterra Off-Road 4x4...a very capable vehicle.

                        I think that the Toyota FJ (Fake Jeep) would be the most off-road capable next to the Jeep. I am not to crazy about the FJ but, with the awesome engine swaps you do with the Hemi in the Wrangler, how cool would a Toyota FJ be with the 5.7 out of a Tundra . Lift it and do the engine swap I would probably want one (only if there wasn’t a Jeep anymore). I like the old Land Rovers but it seems that the new ones are to focused on luxury instead of the off-road capabilities that they use to have, especially the Defender.
                        But first you need to figure out how to fit the Commander on a 35X12.50.

                          New poducts from AEV?

                          First things first ... How about a "Brute" based on the new longer wheelbase 4 door Wrangler. Either a "King Cab" configuration, with room behind the front seats, or better yet, a "crew cab" with a smaller but still reasonably sized pick-up bed. Next ... while I don't see the Jeep brand going away, how about expanding your product lines to include the Toyota Tacoma, and FJ. These are reasonably priced, super solid vehicles that would be even better with your upgrades.

                            I think a crew cab Brute would be nice but it would kind of be like a Dodge Power Wagon with more front tire clearance.

                              From a business point of view - I think the FJ is the in-thing at the moment for modified vehicles so you would have to be silly to ignore that - but the question is - is the FJ a fad waiting to fade away or will it stand the test of time?

                              The new 200 Series Land Cruiser would certainly be one to look at - I'd expect at least a 5 to 8 year run of that body style before they change it drastically again.

                              For this I'd definitely be looking at working with ARB - creating a product range that's accessible to ARB dealerships world wide. As part of the field testing phase of the new Land Cruiser - it was bought to Oman. The Middle East is a gold mine on the Cruiser.
