    That's a RAM pickup bed they have cobbled up on there for testing purposes. Notice how the tires aren't centered in the wheel well opening? Also see the lights?

    Still running that RAM bed it looks like. Until someone gets a shot of the actual bed its gonna be real tough to
    figure the proportions out. Please please please I hope they don't do a stepside.......

    I also have the same thoughts.

    I've been thinking of buying a M715 to build up as a project. This is going to force some more thought on my end as to what I want to do.

    Curious as well if it's going to have flares.
    Couldn't imagine trying to tuck a 13.5 tire under a bed like that without flares.
    Would look quite ridiculous lol

    They must be convinced the 4 door pickup will sell better, since now the Wrangler will have 3 different wheelbases. I bet it wouldn't be that hard though to use the normal 4 door Wrangler wheelbase (116") to add a 2 door pickup.

    The wheels look very strange to me. Most mules seem to have current production wheels, but not this one.

    These just look like the photos from the last spy shot session...if I'm not mistaken. Nothing new.

    I wonder how all of these people will feel that spent $80k or more on the conversion from AEV? When if they would have waited a couple years could have had one for close to half the cost.
    Personally, THIS! ^^^^^^ I've been wondering this. I've followed AEV since the late 90's and have wanted one since the long wheelbase began. Spent 7+ years w/ a Scrambler, had a few TJs and a couple JKs...even though I could swing an AEV now I'm not sure I'd want to swallow that build cost. I know most w/ that kind of money don't care (I'm not one of them). I mean, I see them built for $100k and sold for $80k w/ less than 10k miles on them...but the older TJs have held some value, very niche as it is, but some higher value than a standard built JK.

    How this factory version will differ, much less affect the AEV builds has been on my mind for months. Thus, I'm waiting. That, and having a Ram 1500 w/ the 5.7, size, comfort...this is just going to be another midsize truck. Man, I'm torn...need a truck but want another JK...FIRST WORLD PROBLEMS

    I do think AEV will continue to roll bank with their Hemi conversions in these things, and they've done a pretty good job diversifying into the Ram market now..totally curious to see what they do next!

    I do wish it was out sooner. I'm tired of waiting...but not tired enough to build a Brute DC like those rich boys are doing

    It will be a 4-door...and if your concerned about departure or break over angle, don't buy a truck...any of them.

    Looking at how they closed the cab, it will no doubt be very similar to the AEV Brute in wheelbase if they stick with a 5' bed...which is 139".

    I agree with Joe...hope they keep the freedom panels...and s rear sliding window would be nice

    I understand where they went with it, but at that point why not just do a Ram with a soft top? Seems like it would've been a lot easier with the same end result.
