    Which has pretty much been their business practice since the beginning.

    I’ve never said/suggested they couldn’t or shouldn’t. I’ve said it’s not what they are doing now or have done historically. Nor am I drawing similarities between things that aren’t to justify my position. Keep up I guess you lost me where you think you know what’s best for their business...

    Are you aware of the cost to bring manufacturing like that under one roof? I’m guessing not. Had you would have, you’d realize how ridiculous of a notion that is (in terms of modern OEM style manufacturing). OEM grade manufacturing is NOT Mom and Pop welding shops of which you’ve already...

    You keep throwing that word “resources” and yet to define what it is exactly. Truth is I doubt you have a clue what resources they have and just “bitching to bitch” which is cool. I hate waiting too. I’ve followed AEV since the original unlimited LJs and regardless if the had a GM contract...

    I hate the Colorado just as much as the next Jeeper. And like you waiting myself as nothing comes close in aesthetics. As you said, the company is in it to make money so I can’t fault them there.

    As pointed above it’s two entirely different manufacturing process. I work in industrial manufacturing and the difference between casting, fabrication, machining, stamping and so on lead times (and revision) is night and day. It’s one thing to test the bumpers crash rating it’s another to...

    Has a lot to do with supplier timelines updating dies and tooling than is does with AEV R&D resources. Industrial manufacturing has never been known for fast turn around times.

    Went to the AEV open House yesterday. This is what I was told to expect 1) Bumpers are early 2020 they had to tweak the design something to do with being overbuilt. I asked about the front facing trail camera and if a relocation bracket or lower hoop was in the works. No official word. 2) LED...

    Hey Benny, What is the difference between the Old Mopar grab handles and the new with AB at the end. Looking for a front rear set and locking gas cap. Thanks

    Good question, not sure there is an answer. I know from a manufacturing standpoint where I work, items from suppliers always screws our delivery schedules by months. When you’ve got a complex parts from multiple suppliers and vendors it’s like orchestrating cats in a swimming pool. This is...

    AEV for as long as I’ve known them will engineer everything into a product they can, which always means last to market. I’m guessing with the addition of a front facing camera the bumpers may have had to get redesign on the radiator hoop... IF it was not modular to begin with. If you look at...
