American Expedition Vehicles (AEV) to offer limited number of 2010 J8's

The J8 is one of the toughest vehicles in the world and, until now, it was only sold to foreign militaries and governments. A very limited number of 2010 J8's will be made available to enthusiasts in the United States exclusively from American Expedition Vehicles (AEV) as the AEV J8 MILSPEC.

Walled Lake, MI (PRWEB) April 9, 2009 -- "Hardcore off-road enthusiasts have been asking for a vehicle like this for years, no frills and setup for a choice of diesel or V8 power and built with extra heavy-duty components," said Dave Harriton, CEO of American Expedition Vehicles. "It's certainly not for everyone, but that's all part of the appeal. Being able to offer even limited quantities to the American public is really a dream come true for AEV. First, it's a perfect match with our niche manufacturing and distribution channels, and second, the J8 is a unique part of history that we're proud to be part of."

The AEV J8 MILSPEC will be sold as a component rolling chassis. The vehicle is meant for off-road use, and as typical for component vehicles the engine and transmission will be installed by the buyer or at the buyer's direction by an independent contractor. Although AEV does not provide the powertrain, there are a number of independent AEV dealers that can supply and install either a 2.8-liter diesel engine or a 5.7-liter V-8 HEMI® engine and transmission package.

The J8 MILSPEC will be assembled in Detroit by AEV. The complete rolling chassis will be delivered painted, upholstered, fully instrumented and will include ABS brakes, heavy duty suspension and axles, exhaust, wheels and tires.

Designed for military use, the J8 was designed to pass one of the world's toughest durability cycles, which is three times more severe than what civilian applications must endure. The axles are both beefed up to a heavy duty Dana 44 front and a Dana 60 rear axle equipped with Dodge Ram brakes. The frame is built for severe use and the rear suspension uses leaf springs to facilitate more than a 2,500 lb. payload capacity and a 3,500 lb. tow rating. The J8 MILSPEC will accept two powertrain options, either a VM 2.8-liter diesel engine rated at 174 hp and 339 lb.-ft.of torque or a 5.7-liter V-8 HEMI rated at 330 hp and 375 lb.-ft. of torque. Both engine choices will use a 5 speed automatic transmission. The vehicles also have a number of military-specific components, including tow loops that are rated for helicopter use, an air filter capable of running as long as five hours in zero visibility dust storms and remote-mounted batteries. Don't look for satellite navigation or leather seats, options are limited to paint color (Desert Sand or Military Green), a choice of a three door or five door body styles and air conditioning.

Off Road Trail Tools Announces Clean Cabin Air Intake to Provide Fresh Filtered Air for Jeeps

Tucson, Arizona- January 1, 2009 – Off Road Trail Tools announces the release of their clean air scoop and filter for Jeep Wrangler’s (98-06), Jeep TJ’s, LJ’s and Rubicon’s to provide clean, filtered cabin air.

“Did you know that the air coming into the cabin isn’t filtered? I’ve heard this part being called the part that Jeep forgot to install,” says Tat Marcy, owner of Off Road Trail Tools. “Our primary goal with this intake is to provide occupants with fresh, clean air – free of dust, dirt and debris.”

The simple solution provided by Off Road Trail Tools is a kit that filters out most particulate matter and provides increased air flow. Kit consists of two primary parts – a scoop and a filter. The scoop was designed to fit securely on the cowl of the Jeep. The scoop is manufactured with a high grade polyethylene that resists the sun’s harmful UV rays and is impact resistant. The air filter is comprised of a micro-layer cotton construction with wire mesh, tested to ISO standards. Kit comes complete with mounting hardware and installation tool.
