So I know this has been debated but just wanted a quick idea on a lift idea for my old man who is about to buy a Sahara and will just be leaving it at his vacation home in Colorado. 33" tires and needs to ride well. I was guessing the AEV because of ride quality but wanted to double check. Probably won't really wheel just trails and towing his side by side. What do y'all think? Thanks in advance! Sorry for same ole thread.
Define "ride quality". It is completely subjective and means something different to everyone. IMO the prefect "ride quality" for a Wrangler is very stiff and unforgiving so that there is no body roll or nose dive. I prefer to give up road comfort (even though it is mostly there) in order to be bullet-proof off road.

If he wants 33's he can do that stock with no issue he doesn't need a lift. He can very easily run the trails he is going to run with 33's in Colorado without a lift and the ride is well, what you get stock
Not all tires are the same, but if you are planning to run a 285/70r/17 Wrangler MT/R this will rub when you are on the trail and slightly on the street. Ask me how I know.... I would go with at least a BB if you plan to run this setup.
