The Brute Double Cab Kit. More Storage For Your Wrangler.
Published November 2, 2012
This segment will be for all of you guys, and gals who love everything about your Jeeps. There’s a company called AEV, which stands for American Expedition Vehicles, and they have seemed to have found a relatively inexpensive way to modify your 2012 Jeep Wrangler JK model.
What these off-road geniuses have accomplished is a completely bolt on kit that can be added on to your 2012 Jeep Wrangler JK making it the ultimate all around purpose built vehicle. To better explain this, let me start by entering in a scenario for you to better comprehend where I’m coming from. For the most part, anyone who decides to purchase a Jeep Wrangler for themselves normally will, at some point in their lives will take their Jeep off-road, and in doing so will eventually come to a point where they are going to modify their Jeep. When this point comes, like most Jeep owners, you will find that your storage space is very limited when it come to the Wrangler, and you will find yourself stuffing items for an off-road adventure into every nook, and cranny of your Jeep. This is where AEV comes into the picture.
AEV has created a bolt on pickup truck bed kit for the Jeep Wrangler JK that does more than just provides the much needed storage space that every Jeep owner so desperately needs. The kit is called the Brute, but when it is attached, the name then changes to the Brute Double Cab. Now for a bit of perspective, MOPAR has developed a similar kit that does the same thing, but with one major difference. The MOPAR kit eliminates the rear seat, while the Brute Double Cab keeps the rear seat, as well as allowing for even more storage space when the rear is seat is folded down. So the next question would be is, how is this feat physically possible? Well the secret is how, or I should say, what AEV does to make it work.
The AEV team takes your brand new 2012 Jeep Wrangler and then extends the frame exactly 23 inches towards the end of the frame. This extension allows for the 61 inch truck bed to be perfectly placed behind the cab on the frame. The AEV guys have been producing this Brute Double Cab kit for quite some time now, and it is slowly, but surely catching on. For what it’s worth, this kit kind of allows some of the more nostalgic of Jeep lovers to remember the days when the Jeep Comanche still used to roam the streets, and gave some under rated competition to the Ranchero, and El Camino. The AEV Brute Double Cab kit hasn’t been officially priced as of yet, but the original Single Cab Brute extension went for about $9,000USD, so you can probably estimate where pricing would be for this one.
