I think the AEV 2.5 is the best lift for my uses...YMMV. I spend 90% of the time on the road, and when off road, I like trails, expedition touring. Rocks look great, but can tear up the best built machinery out there. I prefer to just enjoy the ride and scenery.
The lift with brackets handles better than the stock suspension. I do the 'Moderate" level trails around Moab and never touch the rocks. Stock Rubi wheels and tires. Overall, a great lift. For most people.
