American Expedition Vehicles

FoxNews: While it may be a few more years before Jeep gets around to building a pickup truck, the folks at Montana's American Expedition Vehicles are happy to oblige today. Their Brute Double Cab is a Wrangler that's been modified with a full-size bed and all of the off-road equipment you need to haul your friends and their stuff to the ends of the earth. Available with a Hemi V8, it may cost about double the price of a stock Wrangler, but it delivers the goods...literally.

New From AEV - AEV Saws and Camp Hatchet

AEV is proud to announce the release of the AEV Saws and Camp Hatchet, the perfect accessories for your Jeep. These Saws and Camp Hatchet are manufactured for us by Silky in Ono, Japan—home to the finest cutlery steel known to man.

These premium, folding blade saws and hatchet are ideal for the serious off-road enthusiast who refuses to turn back when a trail is obstructed. The AEV Saws and Camp Hatchet have both been thoroughly field tested for durability and now accompany us on all of our back country excursions.

With the holidays right around the corner, the AEV Saws and Camp Hatchet are the perfect gift idea for the hard to shop for off-road enthusiast who has it all.

The AEV KatanaBoy is an essential off-road tool for the true enthusiast. Unfolded, this saw measures nearly four feet long and makes clearing downed trees a breeze, which can be especially useful when traveling through heavily wooded terrain.

The AEV KatanaBoy features a long, well-balanced, taper-ground blade with an impulse-hardened, non-set tooth design that provides extended working reach, faster cutting and handles large limbs and trunks with virtually no effort. The non-slip, two-handed, rubberized handle provides a sure and comfortable grip even in the muddiest, wettest 4WD conditions. Includes a sturdy nylon case which includes a pocket for replacement blades.

  • Blade Length: 19 3/4"
  • Overall Length: 46 3/8"
  • Weight: 2 lbs

The little brother to the KatanaBoy, the AEV BigBoy will be right at home under the seat of your Jeep, but is also small enough to be packed on a motorcycle or snowmobile. With 5.5 teeth per inch and a rubber-cushioned, double-fist handle, you'll have all the cutting power you need to clear a trail or cut firewood, all in a compact package.

The AEV BigBoy features a low angle curve, hard chrome-plated blade that is well suited for cutting branches and climbs. Its well-balanced, taper-ground blade with impulse-hardened non-set tooth design provides an extended working reach, faster cutting and handles large limbs and small trunks with no effort. The non-slip two-handed rubberized cushioned handle provides a sure and comfortable grip even in the most difficult 4WD conditions. The AEV BigBoy is the ideal multi-purpose folding saw for cutting big jobs down to size.

  • Blade Length: 14 1/5"
  • Overall Length: 30 1/8"
  • Weight: 1 lb

Looking for a Jeeper's best friend? While small and compact, this feisty chunk of Japanese craftsmanship won’t let you down when it comes to clearing trails or cutting up small timber for that evening fire. From the moment you handle the AEV Ono, you will know it is destined for your next venture into the great outdoors and will become a regular part of your camping gear for a long time to come. Includes a custom-fitted carrying case with a matching hole-hanger.

  • Blade Length: 4.7"
  • Weight: 1.76 lbs (2.09 lbs w/ sheath)

AEV Saws and Camp Hatchet are covered by a limited lifetime warranty against defects in material and workmanship. This warranty does not cover replacement or repair due to misuse, abuse, mishandling, shipping damage, or normal wear and tear and is applicable for NON-COMMERCIAL USE ONLY.

New From AEV - JK Roof Rack

AEV is pleased to announce the release of our highly anticipated Roof Rack for the 2007+ Jeep JK Wrangler Unlimited. This exceptionally lightweight, extruded aluminum roof rack is designed specifically to be easy to live with and is intended to carry bulky cargo during your next back county excursion.

Every aspect of the AEV Roof Rack has been carefully thought through in typical AEV fashion. This rack features a sleek, low profile design for minimal wind noise. The Roof Rack's wide floor planks are not only easy to walk on or sleep on, but also integrate hidden “T” slot tracks so that semi-permanent accessory mounts or tie downs are a breeze. AEV utilizes mounting brackets that pass through the hard top and attach securely to the Jeep’s roll bar. This creates a very strong, secure mounting system that evenly distributes the weight of your cargo directly to the roll bar, placing no load on the hard top itself.

The outer edges of the AEV Roof Rack feature AEV’s black textured powder coat finish for a very clean look that will compliment your other AEV products. The aluminum floor planks feature an anodized finish to reflect heat, thus keeping the vehicle’s interior cooler in hot climates. This combination of extruded aluminum and a quality surface coating, work together to make the AEV Roof Rack highly corrosion resistant.
An optional Full Rail Kit is available to add unique styling and enhanced cargo management capabilities to the AEV Roof Rack. This extruded aluminum, rail kit features a durable black powdercoat finish which complements the Roof Rack as well as your other AEV accessories. The Full Rail Kit will add an additional 3” to the overall height of the AEV Roof Rack. To further aid with cargo management, optional Eye-Bolt Tie Downs provide a secure tie down point for your cargo. These Tie Downs easily attach to the Roof Rack platform by utilizing the T-slots located on each of the floor planks and are sold as a set of two. 

Key Features:

  • Cargo platform measures 76” X 55”
  • Total installed weight is 68 lbs.
  • Adds less than 4” to the overall vehicle height when installed.
  • Mounts through the hard top, directly to the OE roll bar creating the ultimate mounting system.
  • Wide floor planks with traction ribs for an easy to walk on/easy to sleep on surface.
  • Features “T-slots” for securely mounting just about anything.
  • Super low profile design keeps wind noise to a minimum.
  • Lightweight, all aluminum extrusion and glass filled nylon construction is highly corrosion resistant.
  • Includes a satellite radio relocation bracket to prevent Roof Rack interference.
  • Does not interfere with the OE overhead soundbar.
  • Rack does not interfere with OE Freedom Top panel removal.
  • Optional Full Rail Kit and Eye-Bolt Cargo Tie Downs sold separately.

Installation Notes:

  • Requires assembly prior to installation.
  • Not compatible with 2-Door Jeep JK Wrangler models.
  • Factory hard top required for installation.
  • The installation of this item requires drilling through the hard top.
  • Adding additional cargo weight may have an adverse effect on the handling and stability characteristics of your vehicle. Please consult your owner's manual.

New From AEV - Second Generation JK Snorkel

AEV is proud to announce the release of the second generation JK Snorkel. This redesigned Snorkel is now available for all 2007+ JK models, including 2012+ JK Wrangler's equipped with the 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine. The second generation JK Snorkel features a significantly larger 4" air inlet tube diameter for increased air flow to satisfy the requirements of the 3.6L Pentastar V6, 3.8L V6 and 2.8L CRD diesel engines as well as the 6.4L HEMI and 5.7L HEMI V8 engines when used in conjunction with the AEV HEMI Airbox Kit. The shape of the air intake tube on the JK Snorkel has also been redesigned to compliment the contours of the JK's body.

The AEV JK Snorkel now comes standard with an Air Ram inlet, which is designed to draw in fresh air and separate rain water from the air charge. It is incredibly rugged and well suited for wooded terrain where impacts with trees and branches are likely.

For vehicles that are exposed to dry, desert terrain where heavy dust is likely, an all-new self-cleaning Pre-Filter Assembly is available as an optional accessory. Our Pre-Filter Assembly is used in both heavy duty military and commercial vehicles worldwide because of its rugged construction and extremely long service life. The maintenance-free, self-cleaning design separates dirt and debris from the air charge and ejects the debris out of the Pre-Filter Assembly as the vehicle travels down the road.

Installation requires only minor modifications to the stock JK hood or it fits perfectly with AEV's Heat Reduction Hood with no cutting necessary.

Key Features:

  • Now available for 2012+ 3.6L Pentastar V6.
  • Compatible with AEV HEMI V8 applications when used in conjunction with the AEV HEMI Airbox Kit.
  • Cross-link polyethylene construction.
  • Huge 4" air inlet allows for increased air flow over the previous generation AEV Snorkel.
