Sweet!!! Much better. I've got ocd and i started staring at my wheels after my lift and new aev pinter wheels. Most people would never notice and it is probably not an issue, but after a measurement(jk-project.com), i was off 5/16 in the rear and 3/16 in the front. Installed jks adjustable track bars front & rear and now i feel much better. easy to install & they are so awesome looking.

Besides price, what is the difference with the ride/handling/etc.. between the AEV Spacer kit and the 2.5 lift kit?

I am interested in this lift btw, so I was wondering what all came with? Did you have to change coil springs as well??

Most of your stock suspension is retained including the factory springs and shocks. Front swaybar links get swapped out and extended brackets for brake lines and shock mounts installed. Front bump stop pads are the only drilling mod required. The hockey puck like spacers are between the top of your springs and isolators.

I went with the AEV 2.5 Dualsport XT lift check out this post. I have 35's with the lift and I feel that braking has improved mainly because there is more tire contacting the ground. The ride is better as well but I have more tire noise with the 35's. I also went with the front geometry correction brackets. I plan on adding an adjustable front track bar as the front axle has shifted towards the driver side by about 1/4 inch. http://www.wranglerforum.com/f33/new...ed-156302.html
