Here you can see the underside of the cargo bed. It’s manufactured from the same high-tech cored composite material as the hardtop. AEV says its goal was to have a stronger, lighter bed than its past Brute model, which used a steel bed. “We met our goal, which was to have a net zero weight gain over a comparably equipped four-door Wrangler,” Harriton notes. The composite bed is 140 pounds lighter than AEV’s past model steel bed and is both stronger and stiffer. AEV says it’s also much more damage resistant to dents and corrosion proof.
