dont forget your adjustable track bars!!! i find the drop brackets to be flimsy and the oem bars are weak
I'm not crawling as long as the factory arms don't bend going down the highway at 75mph I think they will be ok

OEM bars are plenty strong for most people.

That's why I am leaning more to the AEV kit because all the people that actually have the kit on their jeep love the ride and that's what I want is a good ride. More then likely my jeep will never see anything even close to the easiest trails of moab heck I will probably never see moab. I spend most of my time driving 6-8 hours to throw a tent by the river in New Braunfels TX or some logging road in Colorado so I don't need super flex and super strong arms and 14" of travel with $120,000.00 shocks and atlas axels or unimog axels with superchargers and NOS or any other bs I need a good reliable highway rig with 3.5" lift NOT 2.5" because I am going to put on heaver front and rear bumpers. I am going for a specific look for my JKU that will get me down the road to go camping with family and friends I'm not crawling mount Everest or trying to cross the Amazon

Most aftermarket lift springs, the good ones, are made to with stand added weight of bumpers and armor. A 2.5" Teraflex, AEV, Rock Krawler, Metalcloak, Synergy etc.. will stay at 2.5" with the added weight. AEV's 2.5" kit is a good kit for the money, but their 3.5" kit, I am not a fan of, component wise.
