It's near my house. I see it daily on my way into work. I thought it was really cool at first but the novelty has worn off

Waaaaaaay overpriced, but otherwise pretty cool.

I'll bet that cab is tight, though.

that's one of the last things Cauley has on his adjacent lots that I'd look at buying with lotto money.

My father owns a bakery near that dealership. I was driving over there with him the other day and asked to stop if I could snap a pic of that thing real quick

Ever since Cauley lost their Chevy dealership that place has been the land of over priced novelty cars. They had a few of those Firebreathers or whatever the fukc they are for awhile.

A couple weeks ago someone driving the AEV JK they had passed me and he damn near came through the window Jeep Waving at me...

I do however like driving through their lot on a nice summer day when all of the Ferraris are out sunning themselves.

Sounds like the dealership made the right choice after Chevy ditched them.

As for the jeep maybe it's just the color scheme that is really killing it but for some reason this one just isn't doing it for me like some of the other ones out there. The interior is also more GQ and less jeep with the two tone inserts on the dash

I am curious about the tailgate though. It appears to still open from the side and not drop down as one would expect on a truck. Trying to figure out why you would want it that way after going through all the trouble of building a bed. Also noticed the tail lights look like a total after thought in this design as well. Do some nice smoothed in LEDs again your building the damn bed from scratch.

It's the little things that can go along way

Hinges are at the bottom of the tailgate. So I would guess that it opens down.

Seems like a ton of money.

Of course the new MW3 Wrangler I saw on a lot yesterday had a sticker of $47,000, which I thought was INSANE.

It's amazing the price tag of a Hemi swap that AEV expects. I love the rest of there products but I think $20K for an engine swap is a little nuts!
