Hey Ben I've been creeping around the AEV forum for years and I think this'll be an awesome build but are you still gonna run this on the 4door JK frame?

Whoa Nelly! Sub'd!!

I have a 00 Sport, I've be happy with just the Brute...but I'm sure this think is going to be a beast!

srad600 01-29-2013 10:35 PM

Nice. I'd be happy just to be able to do a Brute kit on my TJ and call it a day. Must be super sweet to be able to buy one, strip it, and dump a ton of cash on it right out of the gate. Rock on dude.

No, we didn't go with the JK frame but we are "tweaking" this TJ frame, a lot..! We have a few tricks up our sleeve and I think it will vastly improve the build. Stay tuned.... :dance:

Sorry for the delay in getting some updated pics but we were SUPER busy trying to get it done for Jeep Beach. And sorry I didn't get pics from Jeep Beach but here are some pics of Brutal "posing" in my driveway just prior to going to Jeep Beach. I'm going to try and get out this week of next week and get some better pics of Brutal offroad or at least in the dirt or sand. It's not a 100% yet, but this Brute has to be one of the baddest Brute's every built... Hope you all like it.

Ben

Love it with the exception of the tire tread pattern running across it. The Brute itself is awesome!

UFOtestpilot 04-29-2013 09:25 AM

That is a very nicely done truck right there.
