Moab Utah Easter Jeep Safari - Tuesday

Tuesday was spent climbing through the trails of Moab with the AEV Ram Concept truck. The AEV Ram is a 2500 full size pickup complete with AEV High Clearance Fender Flares, AEV 3.0" DualSport Suspension lift, AEV 17x10 Katla Wheels, 40" BFG Mud Terrain KM2 Tires and the AEV Ram Front Bumper. After a number of years working with the Wrangler, we recognized that there was a void in the industry for a full-size off-road truck that offers more cargo capacity and towing capability, particularly in the growing overland travel market with its requirements for extended range, payload and towing. This is the second trip to Moab with the AEV Ram since introducing it at SEMA in 2013. Stay updated on AEV Ram updates by signing up for our newsletter here.

Moab Utah Easter Jeep Safari - Monday

Every year AEV invites customers to partake on an exclusive trail ride at Easter Jeep Safari. On Monday we set out for Black Dragon Canyon near Green River, Utah. It's a bit different than your typical Moab trail ride - it's really off the beaten path and a unique place to tour. One of our first stops included a visit to the petroglyphs that adorn the canyon walls of the wash. It is incredibly humbling to reflect on what once was part of this land.

Expedition Portal is now doing some of the most complete reviews of various specialty 4x4 vehicles in world. They recently got their hands on a couple of our HEMI V8 powered Jeep Wranglers but weren't content with just taking them off-road for the usual song and dance. Instead, they brought in Baja 1000 winner and Toyota/Lexus factory test driver Joe Bacal and had him push our Jeep to the limits on an Arizona road course that was built for high-powered aerodynamic sports cars, not lifted off road vehicles to show just how impressive these vehicles are for everyday use.

In this video from expeditionportal.com Joe uses the 390 horsepower, 5.7L VVT HEMI V8 to throw our Wrangler into the corners. With finely-tuned balance, predictably and minimal body roll Joe shows why AEV's DualSport suspension system is not only known as the best off road suspension system in the industry, but the best on road as well.

Later in the video Scott Brady shows some of the fun they had in Moab this year with a 4.5" lifted AEV Wrangler on 37" tires. Our Jeep performed flawlessly on both Cliffhanger and Steel Bender, further showing the varying capabilities of our Jeeps and why Scott Brady calls AEV Jeeps "the most impressive trucks we've ever checked out."
