I installed the AEV 2.5 kit yesterday on my 2009 Rubicon Unlimited and got 4.5 in the front and 3.5 in the rear. We will see what it sags too. I have 33 in tires an Aries front bumper with a 10,000 lb winch. I took it out tonight the jeep is way smoother on washboard feels more stable on pavement, and the flex is awesome. I would recommend this kit to anyone looking for a kit in the 2.5 range.l

Where can I get the best price on this kit? I know AEV doesn't have sales, but can we at least get free shipping?

I installed the 2.5 kit with the geometry correction kit, and AEVs premium bumper on my 2012 JKU. Wound up with 4" at the rear fenders and 3" at the front. The handling is great, and the ride as good as original.
Bought the kit thur Brian at Northridge 4X4 great price and service

Ok after 250 miles the from has sagged 1 in making lift height 3.5in, and I got 3 in the rear. I did not get the control arm drop brackets and tore the rubber boot the first time I fully flexed my rubicon with the sway bars disconnected. Wednesday I'm ordering a Tom Woods front drive shaft. I do love the ride of the lift and the extra flex.

that looks like 3" of lift and you got prolly 10k miles on the torn boot if not more and forever till she blows up.

i got 20k on my stock oem drive shafts with torn boots. and still going

I just had this lift installed on my Jeep yesterday. It looks and rides great but I am disappointed that I didn't receive any AEV decals with my kit. The are shown on the AEV page as being included. Did anyone else get them with their kit?

Seems like I heard something about AEV not giving out stickers unless they do the install.

I put my kit on myself, and I received 2 stickers with my kit. First time out I tore the boot on my front driveshaft even though on the website it says no drive line mods required.

Just completed a week in Moab with my '12 JKUR and the AEV 2.5 kit with the correction brackets. No exhaust mods and no issues with the driveshaft. Amazing performance both on and off road. These springs and shocks work perfectly together. Washboard trails were FINALLY not an issue any more.

My guess would be you installed something incorrectly. Doesn't seem that anyone else has had that problem, at least from what I've seen on the AEV forum.

Stock driveshaft boot will tear with any lift brand on '11 and earlier auto trans models if you flex it out real well. That boot is not a critical component to operation or longevity of the driveshaft. If the boot tears on the rzeppa joint where the driveshaft meets the transfer case you have a seriously limited amount of time untill you will need a replacement.
