American Expedition Vehicles was busy through all of 2019 getting ready for a tidal wave of new products for next year. For starters, there’s the enormous Prospector XL, which is based on the new Ram Heavy Duty pickup truck. Following that will be packages for the iconic JL Jeep Wrangler, which will be AEV’s signature vehicle. Just as well is new kit for the Jeep Gladiator, which AEV takes credit for the inspiration with its Brute pickup truck. Finally, there’s the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison, which is seeing a production increase for 2020. Also for the new year, AEV will be offering a special high-clearance fender flare and larger tire, dubbed the 350 package.
MC&T was the first to deliver all of this off-road truck and SUV news before announcements were shown to the public.
On the SEMA Show Floor, AEV had its new products on display, with all of them in a matching custom green hue. For the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison, the high fender flares allow for a 35-inch tire without the need to meddle with the already stellar suspension geometry from the factory. That means stock ride height, as well.
The material of the fenders is of an American-made ABS plastic that is both UV resistant and sturdy, while AEV will fit 35×12 50R17 BFGoodrich All-Terrain KO2 tires beneath them. AEV originally wanted to add these larger tires on the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison out of the gate, but will offer this 350 package (350 represents the 35-inch tire allowance) a la carte instead.
Pricing has not yet been announced. Feel free to have a look at our exclusive photo gallery below, and be sure to check back in for the latest off-road pickup truck news.
