8. Next up for paint was the new Brute bed. Out of the box, this bed is a very impressive piece. You can easily tell that AEV spent some time designing this to hold up over the long haul. Additionally we found sweet added touches like provisions to install wooden bed dividers and an integrated cavity to protect the gas filler neck from loose loads. All these, combined with the fact that it was constructed from 14-gauge steel, gave us confidence that this bed was built to last.
