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.
