Outdoor lovers and apocalypse enthusiasts have something to be happy about — an amazing campervan that is also a 4x4 zombie proof machine.
This ride needs to go into production as soon as possible. If you are an avid camper, make space in your garage for the handiest multi-purpose vehicle that money can buy. According to Top Gear, the Jeep Wrangler Outpost II from the amazing American Expedition Vehicle is perfect for off-roading and an all in one camping van, ideal for wilderness- exploration as it is a survival capsule.
Unfortunately, AEV confirms that is just a one-off concept that will not go into production. Once you understand what exactly has been done to this wrangler, you will affirmatively see what a pity it is that this vehicle isn't available anyone who loves to spend time in nature.
The front part of this ride is based on the ‘JK’ gen Wrangler, which graced the market in 2006, which AEV was hoping to pay tribute to. The new ride incorporates the front only, the rear has been chopped off and extended with a rigid steel frame which supports the living quarters.
Dave Harriton, AEV’s founder, personally designed the onboard amenities, which includes a slide-out 50-liter fridge and freezer. The idea of this vehicle is to fit the needed utilities in a compact space. The vehicle also has slide cooking appliances which come in handy when prepping meals during camping trips.
The Wrangler has a thin steel gauge that is used for the extendable roof, secured by custom hinges modeled on the bonnet hinges. This ride also packs a 265-watt solar panel that sits right on top of the roof panel. This power the living quarters of can even jump start the vehicle is the battery starts acting up. The roof is designed in an angle that allows for optimum charging of the panels. This allows the panels to be charged even when cruising the northern latitudes from Montana to Alaska. This ride is designed to withstand the elements.
With all this, the vehicle might not be available for the public market, but we're hoping that it will someday.
