It's shifted slightly to the right. That's so that you can still reach the tailgate handle/button even with an oversize tire and wheel mounted.

Hey One Punch, I just went with the hinge and stock mount, it works perfectly! I am 100% satisfied and you will not believe how strong it is!
I personally don't think the AEV comes close......... But that's just my opinion.....

Do you have any dimensions for the piece of aluminum you fabbed to serve as a bracket? I do not have access to a machine shop, but I have friends that do and would like to be able to give them dimensions as opposed to trial and error.

You lose one of the 10A tow hooks, and there are more moving parts on the AEV. The Teraflex is a very cool one piece deal with many add on options. Almost like "plug & play". The Teraflex is extremely strong! You can open the rear door and try to lift it on the hinges and it does not budge! Truly awesome! I love it, can you tell? (Smile)

I removed the hard top to take out the soft top (dual top group). I installed Safari Straps and Body Armor Trail Doors. Since I already have 5 cars in my 3 car garage the Jeep stayed in the driveway so I used the Bestop Trail Cover the keep the condensate out over night. It was a blast to drive the Jeep so open!!




Sweet looking Rubi... I have the same White 10A with black leather and black fenders.

One of my favorite mods so far....

The best 3rd Brake Light option ever, IMO.



Sorry for the poor picture quality.... this was cut out of a video I did to check if they were wired correctly ( which is a no brainer but you gotta test it. )

Anybody else feel like this???

I wish some of my favorite brands (TF, RK, AEV) would come out with something other than "black" colored suspension/lift setup. Would love to look a someone's jeep and know the set-up at a quick glance.

When I pitch money for mods,,,, I want to look at my Jeep with a beer in hand and see my mods stand out (Just a little bit).

Quick NOte: I had some guy ask me the other day... "Did this Jeep come like this."

In my mind I was thinking, F^*K NOOO! However, my reply, "no sir, it did not come lifted like this."

Hey - for the folks in the PA area - I put a post on the 10A main thread about some offroad classes at Rausch Creek - a few of us went up a number of weeks ago and had a blast...
