From modifying his Dad’s Jeep to winning a business plan competition in College, Dave Harrington started one of the most trusted companies in the off-road industry today. American Expedition Vehicles (AEV) not only makes truly impressive OEM+ quality aftermarket off-road parts for Jeeps and pickups but also works with OEMs for complete vehicle upfit solutions.
The company started with a stretched Wrangler, but the Brute Jeep pickup is really what put AEV on the map. Not only was it the off-road capable Hemi V8-powered Jeep enthusiasts were clamoring for, but it inspired Jeep to actually build the Gladiator. Sadly, AEV doesn’t make the Brute anymore and Jeep doesn’t offer a V8 Gladiator, yet.
While Jeep Wranglers started the company, and Jeep pickups really got the company noticed in the industry, it was RAM pickups that really made the company grow. The Prospector XL builds really blew the minds of overland enthusiasts and big American truck people alike.
Today AEV doesn’t just work with Jeep and RAM’s parent company Stellantis, but also GM. With top quality, and fully tested, OEM quality parts for the Colorado, Silverado, and Sierra now available GM off-road truck lovers can get in on the AEV program. Not to mention the Colorado ZR2 Bison, Silverado ZR2 Bison, and Sierra AT4X AEV Edition, which are fully AEV upfitted trucks available directly from GM dealers.
