The American Expedition Vehicles Brute Double Cab Pickup Truck is one of my all-time favorite off-road vehicles. They don’t sell them anywhere near me (the closest authorized dealer is down in Oceanside), and they’re the most expensive Jeep I’ve ever lusted after.
The AEV Brute Double Cab is a customized 4-door JK Jeep Wrangler, that’s stretched, beefed up, and made spectacular by the Michigan-based company, American Expedition Vehicles with skid plates, available Warn winch packages, and more. There are even more varying degrees of awesome available from the factory. This particular vehicle offering is not just the upgraded JK, though. Underneath that sheet metal beats 6.4 liters of American Hemi V8 can-do whup-ass. This Jeep is the Captain America of Jeeps. It is hoo-rah on wheels.
But no Jeep is completely dressed without a great interior, as well. Enter C.C. Filson, THE premiere American hunting, fishing, outdoors, and expedition outfitter that’s been around since the Great Klondike Gold Rush of 1897. Filson knows the outdoors, with more than half a million Filson Cruisers (patented on March 3, 1914, US Patent #1088891) keeping rugged guys (like yours truly) warm for decades.
AEV and Filson have teamed up to offer the Filson Edition AEV Brute for only $130K. From the Filson website:
In the AEV Brute Double Cab, Filson has found a vehicle that is made for the same purpose that we make our outdoor goods: to keep adventurers safe and warm in Earth’s toughest conditions. Built for off-the-Google-map conditions and customized by American Expedition Vehicles, the Brute Double Cab features a host of expedition-ready upgrades such as a stamped steel Front Bumper, 9,500-lb. WARN Winch, a fully functional Heat Reduction Hood, 3.5″ Dualsport SC Suspension System and 35″ BFGoodrich Mud Terrain KM2 Tires. Powering the Brute Double Cab is a 6.4-liter HEMI V8 engine, producing an exhilarating 475hp. Exclusive features only available on the Filson Edition Brute Double Cab. ***Please call 1-800-624-0201 with questions or to order the Filson Edition AEV Brute.***
