First Look: AEV Dodge Ram 2500

With the launch of AEV's latest product lineup for Dodge Ram Pickups, there's been quite a buzz in the 4WD community. We were pretty lucky to get the scoop on the story a few days ago, with a bunch of details that you can read here, but ever since we've had our boots on the ground at SEMA we couldn't wait for the doors to open so we could get a look at what just might be the future of pickup modification.

AEV Ram Accessories: A New Standard?

AEV Ram 2500 Concept
American Expedition Vehicles is unique in the aftermarket, a company born from engineering and still delivering equipment of exceptional design and quality. I can remember the first AEV product I encountered over a decade ago, a long-wheelbase Wrangler being driven by Christopher Wood. My initial reaction was “so factory – so clean”- those attributes remain today. From the early days of AEV Wrangler conversions (which won a Chrysler design excellence award) to the current line-up of JK accessories, AEV’s growth and refinement has left most of their competition in the dark ages of hammars, welders and grinders.

For 2014, American Expedition Vehicles is pushing hard yet again, expanding their offerings to Ram 1500 – 5500 pickups. When AEV’s CEO Dave Harriton first mentioned the idea, I couldn’t help wander my thoughts towards crossing an Icelandic glacier with a Power Wagon on 54” tires and a fully integrated camper module. This daydream is now a possibility with AEV showcasing a 2500 Ram pickup with a stamped steel bumper, high-clearance fender flares, aluminum wheels and a three-inch high performance suspension system at the SEMA show in Las Vegas.

La Aduana: 1952 Dodge Power Wagon

So I will admit, it probably isn't the best choice for an expedition vehicle, but this is a seriously tough, and not to mention cool truck. It's a 1950s Dodge Power wagon that has been "maintained and updated but never restored" and is in overall fantastic shape. Powered by its original 236 cubic inch 6 cylinder, and according to the owner will start and run smooth even when it's cold outside.

ICON Releases Coilover Lift Kit for Dodge 2500 and 3500

Full-size pickup trucks are known for their versatility, so why shouldn't their lift kits be known for that as well? Maybe normally you're running a heavy-duty steel front bumper with a winch and tons of skidplates, but come winter time, you end up throwing a snowplow on the front of your vehicle as well. You probably don't want to run around looking like a '50's hot rod all season long, so why not have a set of adjustable shocks that allow you to adjust your ride height within minutes? ICON Vehicle Dynamics just launched a 3-5" Coilover lift for the popular 2003-2012 Dodge 2500 and 3500 pickups, that allows you to fine tune your vehicle for changes in weight while never having to worry about overheating your shocks, even after miles of washboard with the included remote reservoir. 6061 Aircraft grade aluminum CNC machined parts, combined with a 7/8 polished nitro steel shaft and FK rod end bearings are a sure recipe for a long-lasting, high-quality product.
