…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Brute by American Expedition Vehicles?

American Expedition Vehicles Brute

If you want to turn your Jeep Wrangler into the ultimate off-road vehicle, then hand it over to American Expedition Vehicles and let them give it the full Brute conversion.

Designed to be stylish, bold and bruteiful, the Brute kit turns your TJ into a truck with more headroom thanks to a hardtop with skylights, increased storage space thanks to an all-steel bed, and a longer wheelbase thanks to frame extensions that are also designed to mount a winch.

Best of all, the kit can be installed in your garage in about 60 hours, giving you plenty of time to hit the trails after a long weekend of wrenching away.

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Exclusive Motor Cars?

Exclusive Motor Cars

Despite what it looks like, this is not an Aston Martin V12 Vanquish.

Instead, it’s a Ford Mustang with one of the best body replica kits I’ve ever seen.

Made by Exclusive Motor Cars, the replication process includes stretching the wheelbase, widening the track, lowering the ride height, adding 34 extra body panels to the outside, custom upholstering the inside, and then adding the small details like the lights, emblems and grills to get things just right.

What you’re left with after all of that is over is a car that is almost indistinguishable from the real thing. (Except for the price.) They even include a Spy Package that adds on grille-mounted rocket launchers and hood-mounted machine guns for extra fun. (Apparently, “Even the original James Bond car from Die Another Day was equipted with Mustang running gear.”)
