American Expedition Vehicles

AEV's latest project is a fitting example of that strict adherence to perfection. While most vehicles we encounter at the SEMA Show are best described as rolling pieces of art, this AEV Ram is not just functional, it is ubercapable. Instead of lifting the truck to the sky to fit 41-inch Super Swamper Iroks, AEV added larger fender openings and only increased the ride height 3 inches. The inspiration comes from the Highline kits that AEV introduced for Jeep Wranglers nearly a decade ago. And the new suspension and steering goes beyond the industry goal to retain factory suspension geometry and actual improves the Ram's handling with revised pickup points that raise the roll center.

Chris Noel and Chris Cordes stopped by the American Expedition Vehicles (AEV) SEMA booth to check out the new Ram Truck and Jeep JK Wrangler products for 2014/2015.

Last year AEV stunned full size truck fans with their new line of products for RAM trucks and this year they raised the bar with another show stopper, their Aussie inspired tray-back Ram 2500. Fitted with AEV’s front bumper, a three-inch DualSport suspension system, raised air intake system, high-clearance fender flares and 17×10 Katla wheels with 41-inch Super Swamper IROK tires, this is a beast of a thing to behold. The tray-back bed and 66 gallon fuel capacity give it a sense of purpose that is without a doubt, no nonsense.

The combination of Cummins low-end torque, aggressive trail tires and huge ground clearance was almost unstoppable — and the view was amazing. We were literally looking down on the rooftops of passing Jeeps.

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.

As part of that "complete vehicle package," the AEV Ram has been lifted three inches in front and two in the back, in order to give it a level ride. The suspension tweaks don't end there, though, as the geometry has been changed and custom shocks fitted, while AEV modified the truck's steering to make it more precise.

All told, the AEV Ram Concept Vehicle features new suspension system that provides a three-inch lift, 40-inch tires and a stamped steel front bumper that’s able to support a 16,500 lbs winch.

TopSpeed 2014 Ram 2500 Concept By AEV

AEV fitted 40-inch-tall tires under the Ram with a three-inch suspension lift. The result is a heavy-duty truck that’s still usable around town, but can handle any off-road challenge thrown its way.
