I've got everything for my TJ Brute except the bed.
I was doing it a la cart as money allowed but wasn't sure if I wanted to drop $5k on the bed; I could buy another wrecked TJ for that much and combine the butts of both jeeps for a bed and have extra parts!
They are produced in batches, the next batch is currently in production.

Mine is #3 out of the new batch. 5 complete kits are already spoken for. Not sure what the batch size is.

They should be showing back in stock soon. I would suggest contacting them directly if you want to order just the bed. Would be a huge amount of metal work to join two TJ beds together and fill in all the gaps to make it look as good as a Brute bed. There's a few Photoshops out there of Brutes with lowered beds to match the Cab soft top / hard top join line and it really doesn't look right. The Brute bed's definitely a pricey part of the kit, but unless you plan on doing a custom utility box type camper unit on the back, it's definitely the nicest looking solution.

Hey guys. I checked the warehouse today. High line kits are in stock but TJ Brute kits are not. There is no ETA on them. I will post more info as it comes available.

Just had a talk with one of my guys. The Brutes are in production we are just not going to build as much stock due to demand.

Yes, this is a 6.4 from SEMA 2 years ago.

That being said I still like it, it's still cool, but I don't see them leaving the pavement very often. Not that they wouldn't do well off road, just the fact that your spending what $50,000 and it wont do as well off road as a standard JK and it can only be used as a light truck sooooo yeah.
Well it depends on where you live, if you live in Utah then I completely agree with you. On the other hand if you live here in Florida then the break over angle and departure angle are not a very big deal because it's all swamp and water

Really? I just had 3 of them at Easter Jeep Safari. Can't say I ever had a problem. I posted videos to my YouTube page. Sorry I missed the hardest parts of the trail but I was to busy wheeling to video. Our camera crew I'm sure caught some of it. I know they've been editing it and releasing short videos here and there. I'm not saying its perfect for every trail or that it's the end all to anything. I am saying its a amazing vehicle and its hard to judge something that you've never had the chance to test, use or view in real life. Just my 2 cents.

That is the one. It has 40" tires with an LS1. I replaced the Holley EFI with an Atomic. Now the motor really really screams.
