Just wondering... Why AEV instead of Rock Krawler?

Personal Choice more than anything. Knew I was going with their rims ect so stuck with it for the lift.

Got you...I was "coerced" to go with RK... they are just as good!

You cant go wrong with either.

Both have their advantages but I believe your really going to enjoy how it handles after you get your AEV lift on, their road manners are much better than stock

Yes they are...you sacrifice a little clearence off road with aev tho. Not bad tho

Im in LOVE with my Rk kit. During my last wheeling the kit performed better than expected!

At this point any lift was going to out perform the driver's skills:stung:

The jeep is still going be be more or less a daily driver but should get its fair share of trail use and abuse as well. We will see where it goes in the future and adjust the build as needed
