AEV Special Operations - Prospector XL Tray Bed Edition

The Prospector XL Tray Bed concept started out as a personal project of AEV's President, Dave Harriton, which later evolved into one of the most talked about vehicles ever built by AEV. The original Prospector XL Tray Bed concept vehicle was first shown at the 2013 SEMA Show and has since traversed thousands of highway and off-highway miles all over North America. From the arid deserts of southern California to the frozen expanse of the Arctic Ocean, the Prospector XL Tray Bed proved that it was capable of taking on any adventure we threw at it.

Now, AEV Special Operations (AEVSO) is recreating 10 of these legendary vehicles and giving you the rare opportunity to own a piece of AEV history! Based on the Ram 2500 Regular Cab / Long Bed platform, the Prospector XL Tray Bed shares many of the same components as the original AEV concept vehicle, with the addition of some very unique upgrades, to transform this Prospector XL into a one-of-a-kind off-road adventure vehicle that is up for any challenge.

With its lightweight aluminum Tray Bed, heavy duty stamped steel Front Bumper, custom fabricated Rear Bumper, 3" DualSport SC Suspension System, aggressively wide stance and massive 41” tall tires, the Prospector XL Tray Bed is designed specifically for overland adventure travelers and recreational explorers who require an extremely capable full-size truck that also has the ability to tow heavy loads and carry a substantial amount of gear or even large adventure motorcycles. The Prospector XL Tray Bed is also the ideal platform for customers who wish to build the ultimate overland adventure vehicle by adding a bed mounted camper - the possibilities are endless! The Prospector XL Tray Bed is designed with maximum versatility in mind, while offering the same unsurpassed off-road capability and exceptional driving characteristics on the road that you have come to expect from any AEV-built vehicle.

Remember, AEVSO will only be producing 10 of these vehicles and they will be available on a first come, first served basis!
