Prospector 15

EVERYDAY WORKHORSE, ANY DAY ADVENTURER.

An everyday workhorse that can also take you beyond where the road ends, the AEV Prospector is a uniquely-equipped Ram pickup with impressive versatility. Whether you are hauling equipment, plowing snow, surveying a vast ranch property, or just driving kids to a weekend baseball game, Prospector bridges the gulf between town and country. And for travels deeper into the hinterland, Prospector is more than capable on-road. A standard-setting all-steel front bumper leads the way, and AEV’s expertly-engineered 3-inch DualSport SC Suspension allows for smooth travel over heavy terrain on 37-inch tires. For journeys to the far end of a map—or for adventures closer to home—Prospector is up to every task, every day.

EXTERIOR: INTELLIGENT INTEGRATION

  • AEV Salta Wheel for Ram Heavy Duty

    CAST ALLOY WHEELS: Cast from A356/T6 aluminum, the Salta HD is tested to stringent SAE J2350 standards, and feature a valve stem recess to protect the valve and its Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) from being torn off or damaged in rough terrain. These wheels have a RAM-specific backspacing for the perfect fitment of a 37-inch tire.

  • AEV Heat Reduction Hood for Ram Heavy Duty

    HEAT REDUCTION HOOD: Unique vented design that allows fresh cool air to circulate over the engine in both static and dynamic conditions. While it provides aggressive styling, it is also a vital upgrade for heavy towing or traversing challenging terrain off-road at low speeds.

  • Front Bumper for Ram Heavy Duty

    PREMIUM FRONT BUMPER: A 4mm stamped steel bumper that is strong enough to support an optional Warn 16.5ti winch and two massive ductile iron tow loops that exceed all OE load specifications. The AEV front bumper is also adaptive to multiple lighting options and configurations.

INTERIOR FEATURES

  • Prospector 12

    PREMIUM LEATHER UPGRADES: Choose between the AEV F-1 Leather Interior and AEV Standard Leather Interior. Both options feature perforated leather panels and AEV logo headrests that not only provide comfort, durability, and a highly stylized look.

  • Prospector 20

    AEV SWITCH BEZEL: Custom AEV Switch Pod integrates with Ram’s dashboard and allows you to run multiple auxiliary switches to control add-ons such as air-locking differentials, on-board air compressors, and off-road driving lights.

CAPABILITY

  • Prospector 13

    HIGH PERFORMANCE DUALSPORT SUSPENSION: OE-level engineering, manufacturing, and testing take Prospector’s 3” DualSport Suspension System to the highest level in the Ram aftermarket. The foundation for performance in all AEV vehicles for several years, the DualSport Suspension lift delivers not only the most advanced off-road capability for your Ram—it actually surpasses the stock vehicle in everyday performance on pavement. Through extensive OE standard testing, AEV engineers are able to correct steering geometry and other factors affected by suspension lift and larger tires. Additionally, custom-tuned AEV/Bilstein 5100 shocks employ digressive valving that actuates increased low-speed damping, but progressively less damping as vehicle speed increases. The result is a DualSport Suspension System that delivers maximum ride quality for the wide variety of applications your Prospector will encounter.

  • Prospector 16

    RECOVERY READY: The Premium Front Bumper is designed for fitment of an optional Warn 16.5ti winch. It also includes two massive ductile iron tow loops that exceed all OE load specifications and doubles as wear plates when you slide over steep obstacles.

  • Prospector 21

    ALL TERRAIN TIRES: Prospector’s 37-inch BF Goodrich K2 All-Terrain tires are fantastic on both on road and on the trail. Using the AEV ProCal Module, the truck's speedometer, gear ratio, stability control, and transmission are properly recalibrated for the larger tires.

OPTIONS

  • Prospector 8

    AEV BED RACK: A fully-mounted bed rack, made from durable steel. This multi-purpose rack provides unlimited tie-down configurations and is strong enough to support a camper, ladder, awning and other accessories for adventure travel.

  • Front Bumper for Heavy Duty Ram

    AUXILLIARY LIGHTING: In darkness, foul weather, or difficult recovery operations you’ll be glad to have the Vision X Xmitter Prime LED Light Bar. This choice of the U.S. Border Patrol functions at extremes of both hot and cold temperatures.

  • Prospector 17

    RAISED AIR INTAKE: AEV’s Raised Air Intake provides Prospector’s engine with a clean air charge in a variety of difficult dusty or wet conditions. Available with either Air Ram intake or Cyclonic Pre-Filter.

  • Prospector 18

    SPARE WHEEL AND TIRE: Add a spare fifth AEV wheel and 37-inch tire to your full set and secure it to your Prospector’s bed with a heavy duty nylon strap that mounts to the inner bed wall.

  • Prospector 14

    AIR LOCKERS: The Switch Pod-activated Air Lockers ensure that all four wheels of your vehicle rotate in sync for better traction on extreme terrain.

  • Prospector 9

    HEAVY-DUTY DIFFERENTIAL COVERS: Made from tough anodized iron, and designed specifically for 2014-2018 Ram 2500/3500 HD trucks. Increased protection for the Prospector's vital differential cases.
