American Expedition Vehicles

Driving a lifted diesel truck often means you have to put up with a harsh ride, bad on-road handling, poor steering, reduced braking, and the elimination of the factory traction and stability controls. The founder of American Expedition Vehicles, Dave Harriton, strives to eliminate these deficiencies with the AEV Prospector package for ’14-and-up Ram pickups with the 6.7L Cummins diesel engine. By adding on to the work done by the folks at Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, AEV is able to take advantage of the factory engineering for a package that provides the lift needed for serious off-road work while delivering stable and safe performance.

Diesel Power reports on the AEV Ram Concept:

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock for the last decade and a half, you’re probably well aware of the awesome aftermarket parts that American Expedition Vehicles makes for Jeeps. From their Brute conversion kit to highline fenders for the new JK Wrangler, AEV has everything you could think of to make a Wrangler perform in the dirt. What you might not now is that they’ve recently taken the plunge into the full size truck market by offering an assortment of new parts for the new Ram trucks.

First Look : AEV Ram Concept

I would have no problems accrediting AEV as one of the major players that changed the way people looked at modifying their 4WDs. Their groundbreaking high fender kit offered for the Jeep Wrangler TJ model left people asking themselves if they really needed that 6.5 inch lift to fit 35-inch tires. And their well-engineered suspension systems left aside most of the usual drawbacks that came with driving a lifted vehicle. AEV successfully transferred their expertise in building well-prepared expedition vehicles into a product loved equally by hardcore four-wheelers, overlanders, and those simply looking for a great-looking Jeep to drive around every day. Now they're transferring the expertise they've gained in the last decade in the Jeep market into their new lineup for Dodge Ram pickups.

AEV's SEMA Ram Concept Vehicle

Truck Trend reports on the AEV Ram Concept:

People familiar with American Expedition Vehicles know the company has been building and modifying Jeeps since 1997, and that AEV's high-end products are more than just the typical bolt-ons. AEV works closely with Jeep engineers and Tier One suppliers to carefully engineer products that improve off-road capability in the Jeeps. This is the company that's known for the Brute Wrangler-based pickup, as well as diesel and V-8 engine swaps in Jeeps.

So when the company announced it was showing a Ram concept at SEMA, it was a surprise that AEV would delve into Ram waters, but the idea makes logical sense. After all, Ram is part of Chrysler with Jeep, and there are Ram owners out there who could benefit from the types of products AEV manufactures.

AEV Ram Accessories: A New Standard?

Expedition Portal reports on the AEV Ram Concept:

American Expedition Vehicles is unique in the aftermarket, a company born from engineering and still delivering equipment of exceptional design and quality. I can remember the first AEV product I encountered over a decade ago, a long-wheelbase Wrangler being driven by Christopher Wood. My initial reaction was “so factory – so clean”- those attributes remain today. From the early days of AEV Wrangler conversions (which won a Chrysler design excellence award) to the current line-up of JK accessories, AEV’s growth and refinement has left most of their competition in the dark ages of hammars, welders and grinders.
