SEMA 2013: WARN’s AEV Double Cab Brute

Tuesday, November 19th, 2013

warnaevbrute1

WARN has a pretty serious track record of building exciting, purposeful, and totally badass show vehicles. We’ve seen rock crawlers, lifted pickups, and tricked out Jeeps, but this is the first time we’ve seen all three of those combined into one. WARN’s usually show truck is nothing more than a vehicle with a few graphics simply applied and the company’s applicable parts installed, but the WARN AEV Double Cab Brute takes it to the next level. The Brute is a custom-built conversion for the Wrangler Unlimited JK, which stretches the chassis, and adds four full doors and a truck bed to the coil-sprung vehicle. The result, when combined with WARN’s gnarly accessories, is worth taking a closer look at.  Read More→

Every year SEMA attracts hundreds of the world’s most excellently modified vehicles, from motorcycles that make you go “how does that work” to tuners so low you wonder how they can get over a speedbump…much less a pothole, SEMA is the place. But it’s not just the cars that make people come to the world’s largest aftermarket show for, there’s also the 4WDs. If there’s a single hot vehicle at this year’s SEMA show, it’s without a question the Jeep Wrangler JK—but there’s plenty of other vehicles here too. From rock crawlers, to rock racers, trophy trucks, and prerunners, almost everything is at SEMA—don’t miss it.  Read More→

Rob MacCachren’s TRAXXAS race truck is one of the more well-used race rigs we’ve seen at SEMA so far. Rob’s truck has 35″ tires, gnarly FOX Racing suspension, and more travel than you probably know what to do with. Check it out here.  Read More→

Tuesday, November 5th, 2013

Rad Jeep Willys

Every once and a while you come by a vehicle that almost perfectly blends classic heritage, capability, and a little bit of new-school engineering. This year at SEMA we stumbled upon one of those vehicles, an early Willys Jeep, which has had its fair share of modifications and upgrades. Powered by an upgraded V6 VORTEC engine and riding on 35″ Nitto Mud Tires, the Willys is something we’d love to see in the Rock Crawler garage. Check it out below.  Read More→
