    I don't see the interest of such "brute" but if people pay, why not? Mafia people, or some "musicians" if we can use this word. There are so many strange things on our planet, I am not here to judge. I am just allowed to give my 'opinion'. I would prefer a good army truck ...

    There is nothing you could do to make a jeep worth $105k to me. Aside from having $98k in cash in the trunk

    If it was 50 bucks I wouldn't buy it because it's got one of those asinine "angry eyes" grilles.

    That particular location is the playground of the very wealthy, so it might get that price.
    There was a Brute in my local friends shop for some work about 2 weeks back. I have never gotten to look under the hood or crawl under one of these before. I was not impressed with how they sectioned the frame to stretch it. I would have at least gusseted it. It was in for a power steering hose leaking, and fresh tires that were cupped really bad.
    My buddy looked into the steering hose, and declined to repair that. It required removing most of the accessories on that side of rhe engine, and partially lifting to engine about 8" to access the hose. Did I mention the Brute had a 5.7 Hemi shoehorned in? It fit fine, but you couldn't service about anything due to how it was packed in.
    All he did was install a new set of expensive tires.

    For that price, I could buy a real nice GM diesel crew and a leathal and capable Jeep.

    Ive driven a wrangler that had the aev hemi conversion. Had a power steering leak too. They cut the line and hose clamped a rubber line on. It blew off.

    But it did drive nice. The extra weight from the hemi made a nice smooth ride.

    Minus the price...can't really decide if I like the build. I like the pick-up aspect, but I would rather it just be two door and not 4-door (I think). If you get rid of the light bar and the angry birds grill and the wheels (and maybe the bumper)...maybe there is a basic build that is okay (again, minus the price). Put a bit skinnier tire with more backspace so the tires sit more inside the the fenders, and maybe its okay. Wonder what the wheelbase is...seems like it gets pretty long. starting feel like its an overbuilt mall crawler than a jeep...but was trying to like it....
