For those thinking about injecting new life into their TJ's - I heard my Brute kit is getting ready for shipping. I would expect that the Website would show Brute kits available in stock again soon.

Of course, can always just contact them, don't need to wait for a website update.

Hah, that thing is far from little

Have you got a close up picture of the rear suspension set up on the frame side? Specifically the bump stops.

Thanks

It's the cleanest one out there right now. Solid build, but not overbuilt. It's a great daily driver.

I know man. These things are pricey, but all things considered, mine is a bargain at the current price. I have a folder of build receipts with this truck that catalogue everything. You could buy a brand new 2013 rubicon for what it cost the previous owner to build this rig.

I love tube fenders, but this jeep just looks so clean and factory with the hi-line kit, the stock looking fenders are still dang sexy.
Does anyone know what year this brute was on ultimate adventure?

This Brute was first used in the 2007 Ultimate Adventure. For the next couple years it went to various events and shows. Then late last year it was completely stripped to the bare frame and rebuilt for SEMA. It was in the Optima Battery booth for the 2009 SEMA show. Just before Christmas we finished filming in Utah for a TV show that will be aired on SPEED in a few months.

I truly hate to see this amazing Jeep go, but I have a new family member on the way and at least one of my Jeeps most go, so this is the one

A little bit more from Dave Yegge (owner) AEV
Wow, thanks guys. This is definitely at the top of my Jeep list too.

Now on to the questions.
Igmar, I don't have any good pictures of the spare mount in the Brute. It is pretty simple though. Looking down from the top the mount looks like an H. One long leg goes side to side and sits on top of the wheel well. The other long leg is forward of that with a short vertical leg on each side to keep it level with the rear. Then the wheel is mounted with a plate on the center of the H. Make sense? This way the entire length of the bed is usable under the tire.

The axles are both Dynatrac ProRock 60s.
These are high pinion axles with Dyantrac's high clearance housing. They also have Dynatracs 'Stub Hub' locking hubs, these hubs are about 2.25" shorter on each side than a standard locking hub. The axle are 3" wider than the stock TJ axles.

The engine was slightly used when it was first installed in the Brute. Overall the engine now has about 12,000 miles on it. The transmission has the same miles on it and it is the 545RFE automatic that we use in all of our Hemi conversions.

Unfortunately you will not see the Brute in the upcoming season of BullRun. We did make it into the final 15 or so teams, but in the end we were not picked. The show we just finished taping for will be on SPEED, probably sometime this spring. I'm not sure if we are suppose to be talking about what it is, so I'll just leave it at that.

Thanks,
Dave Yegge

Nice build on the Brute. I see you also have planned a rear cage assembly and tire carrier. Here are a couple pics of my K9 Brute. How does it look now?
