They're production Jeeps?!?!?!? I always thought they were customs. I need one Any other cool differences from the TJ besides cosmetic?
they're "production" alright...custom produced by AEV - www.aev-conversion.com. The cool differences are outlined on their website, including the price. If you've got really deep pockets you can drive off with a $75,000 turnkey Brute with every dream gadget you can think of.
That damage just froze me in my tracks. A crying shame especially reading your comment.
I wish you all the best in physical, spiritual and mechanical recovery.
I have been there, a couple quick barrel-rolls into a ditch is a bad way to sum up a project but accidents like this can and do happen to many of us. Good luck and keep on the dirt.
They're a hair under 9 from the manufacturer, AEV. It's not a bad price, especially for someone who can get a 'wrecked' TJ for cheap. If I was going to build a TJ, that's where I'd start-one with severe body damage but a solid frame and drivetrain and go from there.
And you don't need *that* much from what I've seen to build it...it looks like a little welding (And the appropriate grinding smooth), and that's it. And, obviously, paint.
