Description: AEV Brute Conversion Kit for the Jeep TJ


Have you ever dreamed that your Jeep Wrangler was a pick-up truck? This one-of-a-kind conversion kit makes your dreams come true. Turn your 97-06 Wrangler into a totally unique AEV Brute Pick-up Truck! Kit fits 97-06 Jeep Wrangler (TJ). The kit Includes: Brute truck bed box assembly w/ tailgate, Brute cab closeout kit, Brute SMC removable hardtop kit, Brute mid and rear frame extensions, Rear winch mounting plate, Brake, fuel and wiring extensions, Detailed instructions.This kit is meant to be a do-it-yourself conversion that takes about 60 hours for a skilled mechanic to complete. The kit includes everything you need, including truck bed, frame rail extensions, cab panels and removable hard top.

Destined to be an American classic! Brute is here! Offering utility, great styling, and AEV durability, this is the AEV Jeep Brute pickup conversion. Countless hours of design have made this the ultimate conversion for any Jeep TJ Wrangler ( SWB = Short Wheel Base, LWB = Long Wheel Base (Unlimited), LHD = Left Hand Drive, RHD = Right Hand Drive) . Originally designed in 2002 (and a winner of the Daimler/Chrysler Design Excellence Award), the Brute is now available in kit form. Changes from the concept vehicle include an all new hardtop with increased headroom and two small skylights, plus a redesigned stamped steel bed that offers even more storage space.


The kit comes over 90% assembled, with an average build time of around 60 hours. Additionally, the kit can be purchased in various stages to meet your specific needs or budget.


Complete BRUTE KIT includes:
Mid frame extensions Cab closeout (assembled) Rear frame extension w/winch mount All 14ga bed assembly with tailgate Brute hard top (assembled) CNC fuel & brake lines Body mounts (2) Detailed instructions.

Optional Accessories:

Highline Body Kit Spare tire mount for bed
Cab Rocker Guard Kit Spare tire mount for bumper
Rear Tubular Corner Guard Kit Frame jigs - easy bolt-on design
You can customize your Brute build by purchasing select Brute Kit components. Or you can purchase the entire kit one component at a time - to spread the cost and meet your budget. So we've made the BRUTE KIT available 'a-la-carte' in the following 4 sub-kits!

Brute Hardtop Kit

Brute Hardtop kit consists of the Brute's precision assembled injection molded composite hardtop with rear glass and two small glass sky lights in the roof. Center console is pre-mounted. Top is complete but requires TJ windshield latches (from the TJ hardtop only) and dome lamps (removed from the stock 03-06 sound pods). Requires paint.

Brute Closeout Assembly Kit

The Brute Closeout assembly is shipped fully assembled, e-coated, and ready to install. This kit is useful for those who are building a Brute over time or who are wishing to use it on a competition/custom TJ type vehicle.

Brute Bed Assembly Kit

The final part to your Brute build or possibly for a tough trailer. AEV's all stamped steel bed in a work of art. Heavy gauge construction and solid engineering provide one tough truck bed. Bed comes complete with all hardware including tailgate latches and cables. Bed Assembly is shipped in e-coat ready to paint.

Brute Frame Kit

Wanting to build a Brute in your spare time without having your Jeep down for several weeks? Purchase the Brute Frame kit and a good salvage yard 97-06 frame and get going! Frame kit includes precision frame jigs, mid frame extensions, sleeves, reinforcements, and the assembled rear frame extension which even includes a rear winch mount. All parts are e-coated.

AEV has designed the Brute kit to be as versatile as possible. The kit will work on all TJ model Wranglers both domestic and export. The only possible exception are some of the CKD (Complete Knock Down) vehicles built in the Middle East, please contact AEV directly if you are interested in converting one of these vehicles.
