American Expedition Vehicles

When it was first introduced to the world at the 2013 SEMA auto show in Las Vegas, the American Expedition Vehicles Ram 2500 project, now called the Prospector, was a star attraction. Its massive scale, imposing bumper, and broad shoulders gave it a presence on the floor that quickly gathered a crowd. A couple of years later, our Overland International team was able to snag the keys to a freshly built Prospector, one featuring all of the available trimmings. Even better, we were able to test it over the span of a few months covering a variety of surfaces as we traversed Montana, Utah, and Arizona.

We have all come to consider American Expedition Vehicles as the apogee of off-road performance, particularly with regard to the Jeep Wrangler. Their comprehensive catalog of accessories and upgrades transform what is arguably one of the best vehicles in its class into something extraordinary. Now that same level of design excellence is available for the Ram HD 2500/3500 truck.

Attribute it to an ever dwindling selection of viable wagons for off-road use, or just an uptick in truck popularity, the pickup is fast becoming a bigger player in the 4×4 market. Ram continues to win its share of consumers and AEV is poised to repeat their Jeep successes with their new line of accessories for the Ram.

First released at SEMA in 2013, the crown jewel in the new AEV Ram catalog is their impressive modular bumper system. Offered in a number of configurations, the AEV bumper melds seamlessly with the truck’s fascia for a better-than-factory appearance and functionality that we’ve come to expect from AEV. Able to accommodate a 16,500-kb winch, it is a formidable addition.
Their new Ram Raised Air Intake is another notable addition to their lineup as are their two new wheel offerings, the Katla and the Salta HD. Of course the most important upgrade to the Ram is achieved with AEV’s DualSport 3” suspension kit. They’ve provided nearly everything you need to transform your Ram truck into something more––an AEV Ram.

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.

For North America, we are already hamstrung by limited options; solid axle Defenders, Land Cruisers and Patrols all painfully absent. This opinion is not “which is the best overland vehicle in the world” (or even to drive around the world), but the ultimate new 4WD available in the USA, one that provides the best overall performance and attributes for backcountry adventure travel. After considerable research and years of extensive testing, we believe the ultimate new overland 4WD available in the USA is the AEV Brute Double Cab. I am not a “Jeep guy”, but this truck is without question the most exceptional travel/adventure 4WD I have tested in North America.
