AEV have expanded their Brute range to now include a Double-Cab Brute based on a Wrangler JK Unlimited.



Premiering at SEMA this year, and will start production early next year.

DO WANT.

More than it's worth, I'd guess...

Still, it looks awesome. It Reminds me of a Defender 110 and makes me want to go on Safari.

ya know, if the Brute single cab kit did well enough to warrant the R&D manufacturing costs and overhead to add a crew cab option, the guys at Jeep must be must be starting to realize there IS a market they re not capitalizing on..

The brute is really awesome looking but I still have my heart set on the concept Gladiator.

well thats because its costly. if jeep offered a 2 door a 4 door and a pick up at simmilar price points i think you would see a good amount. especially now that the dakota is gone. jeep should capatlilze on that small truck market, the big three are just handing it over to the tacoma..

Those are all true. But the Brute itself is not proof of demand for a Jeep truck. The Brute is to Jeeps what the Viper is to other Dodges.

One day I was flicking through the channels and maybe it was "Motorweek" or something anyway this guy was talking who was more of anumbers guy then a car guy. Anyways, he was saying that the small compact truck is category is kind of dyeing, and gave some good reasons as to why.

1. They have gotten more expensive closer to the price a full size truck. I mean Quad Cab fully loaded will run well over 30K
2. MPG aren't much better then full size pick ups, even Dodge is claiming 20mpg on the highway.

I think if Jeep were to get involve this category with either a Brute or Gladiator.

1. Make it an efficent gas and Diesel engine more efficient then the full size pcik ups.
2. Priced significantly below a well equipped full size pick up.

YES!!!! Im loving this! A crew cab with short bed is what Ive been saying Jeep should offer in addition to a reg cab/short bed wrangler pickup and this is just what I had in mind.

The original Brute has only sold a few hundred units not just because of cost but lack of availability/awareness. If these were sitting on the lot next to 'regular' wranglers for comparable price then theyd be flying off the lots. Having to pay for a complete jeep, then an entire kit and THEN either having to hack it apart and put it together or pay someone to do it is just too much to go through for the average buyer who wants to just buy it and drive it, while doing upgrades gradually.
