AEV 2.5" Installed/Autowerks

Hi everyone. Just had the AEV 2.5" lift installed this week. Overall, it feels great - better than stock, obviously, and handles great! Highly recommended. Will post a detailed review and some more pictures in the lift review section.

Also wanted to thank Ron from Autowerks (Chicagoland Area) for completing the install. Called the guy up and got me in within the hour; also completed the work within a day. He also emailed progress pictures along the way. I know we should be keeping our Jeeps as dirty as possible but the guy also gave me a free interior and exterior detail If you're in the Chicagoland area, give the guy a call: (847) 498-2886 or email: ron@e-autowerks.com

Thanks for the kind words. Let me know your impressions after a few days behind the wheel.

Your rig looks great, man. Sounds like they got a happy customer.

Now if you could just send some of that snow our way.

Looks great. I see the kit utilizes the trac arm bracket too. Good stuff.

Thanks for the comments! I was going to write a review when I've driven on it for more than 15 miles. Plus the kids were screaming!

Congrats and it looks great. I'm looking forward to getting mine back from Wixom with that lift and some other goodness.

Personnally, since a Lift Review thread has already been started, I would post a review there, if you decide to do one.

Did you measure before and after? How much lift did you actually end up with?

This is one item that needs to be included in the lift review thread.
