American Expedition Vehicles (AEV) designs and builds all its accessories to complement each other. This uncompromising design and testing process ensures that each AEV accessory is designed to flawlessly integrate with any other AEV accessory. When you purchase all AEV accessory upgrades, as opposed to mixing and matching brands, you completely eliminate any concerns about incompatible parts. The former Jeep engineers, now on the AEV team, design the company's aftermarket accessories with an ''original equipment'' (OE) state of mind. This all-encompassing design concept ensures AEV has an undeniable advantage when it comes to lasting performance and seamless functionality. For example, AEV's engineers design its suspension lift with wheels to accommodate its steering kit. This results in a "neutral and balanced handling experience" for the driver. With all AEV modifications, the company is noted for striving to maintain a natural, stock driving experience. From wheels, bumpers and tire carriers, to heat-reduction hoods, snorkels, suspension systems and HEMI V8 Conversion Kits, AEV's premium quality accessories excel among competitors. This is why AEV technicians work directly with the Jeep brand to produce distinctive special edition AEV Wrangler Packages, sold at a premium price. AEV gained even greater respect among Jeep lovers with an extreme four-door Brute Double Cab Conversion. They added 23 inches to the wheelbase of a Wrangler Unlimited, and yet another 16 inches to the back frame to get a short pickup bed. Then they added 35-inch mud-terrains and 3.5-inches of lift. AEV testers on the trail in Moab were even more impressed that this Brute Double Cab Conversion was still able to simulate the neutral ride of a stock Wrangler JKU. Don't be fooled by increasing counterfeit AEV products being manufactured and sold in other countries around the world--like bumpers and tire carriers in China and Dubai, snorkels in Malaysia and Dubai, and hoods in Germany and Italy. AEV is an American company with a conceptual design center in Missoula, Montana. It's vehicle build facility is located in Detroit, Michigan. AEV uses only the highest quality materials available in all its manufacturing processes (ex: steel over fiberglass.) Authentic AEV products are sold only through authorized distributors in the U.S. and abroad. And they are only sold at full retail price, never discounted.
