Jeep would be wise to produce the Brute

American Expedition Vehicles (AEV) - AEV Brute TJ Wrangler Jeep Pickup Truck Conversion



Seems only logical. Agree/Disagree?

And no, the regular cab 4-cylinder Cummins Hummer does not already own this market niche, considering the rarity of them.

It would only be wise if it appeals to the mainstream crowd, which I assume it does not.

Jeep will not produce any vehicle that could jeopardize the company.

I think it would be awesome, but to me, it doesn't really matter. As long as it's still available when I plan on buying a new Jeep.

Also, I'm sure AEV has some kind of patent or copyright (whatever legal thingamajiggy it is) to the design that would limit anyone else, including Jeep, from designing the same thing. Mind you, Jeep could buy the rights from AEV to the Brute design.

Sadly I think the insider on the board meeting let it all out of the bag when the president of Fiat stated the public no longer wants "truck like" SUVs they want "car like" models that get great gas milage but without using diesel because it pisses the hippies off.

Models like the Compass, patriot, 2011 GC, and the panda are in Jeeps future.

Now before I get flamed I am not saying those are bad vehicles. but they do not carry on a legacy of offroad prowess or simplicity. They are "car like" SUVs with all the fixens most people expect. Part of what made owning a Jeep special for me was being part of a club of guys who enjoyed spending time under the hood, doing without the latest touch screen nav systems with heated and cooled cup holders. I felt like ruffing it made me special, now I know that happened when I took my SAT's.

Jeep has been "Teasing" us with great truck type Jeep concepts, Gladiator, JK Pickup and now the Nukizer 715 with no real intent to build any of them!! Really starting to piss me off but they did the same thing when I worked at Jeep. I say get serious or knock off the cool concepts that just add to making us all crazy!!!!

Diesel is never going to happen to a Wrangler especially. On top of the Wrangler cost AND another 5k?

And a lot of people don't understand diesel. I'd love to have diesel in every vehicle, but people are dumb and don't understand it as well as regular gas.

Oh my friend you are not alone. Don't be afriad, just do it. I don't even care for the latest Jeep wrangler's out on the market. For me, the whole "jeep thing" is knowing I can take anything like the door's from a CJ and toss them on my YJ cuase, Um hello it's a JEEP and they will fit.

I DON"T want all the fancy thingamabobber's & domahicky's and hot/cold cup holders, or nav. maps or On-Star whoopy-do's. Why do I need DVD player's in my Jeep I still don't know why we need a dumb computer to tell us when to turn?? Really?? I've been a truck driver for 12 years, we use these things called map's, shocking as it is, SOMEHOW we get there.

And who's telling the corporate levels that EVERYONE want's these pansy, foo foo parking lot playtoy's. Like OP I'm not saying there bad, just leave the Jeep alone & continue to keep it simple.

I agree, shagsjeep.

A Wrangler should be 4x4, lockers, removable rear seats, regular cup holders, engine block heater, and maybe a CD changer or aux input. That's all that's needed for a good time!

The Brute embodies what Jeep is (or used to be), but I also think the world of adventure has been ditched for videogames and heated leather seats.

That being said, I think I'd buy a Brute [straight from Jeep] for $32,000.

AEV looks like a great LIMITED EDITION (2,000 per year for 2-3 years). And for those of us who like diesel...an optional 5.0L turbo diesel (i know i know...in my dreams)
