Installed my AEV lift kit today . . .

Well, sort of. Dropping it off with a friend tomorrow for the install. Can't wait. I did finish installing my IPF lights this afternoon.

I installed it into the back of Jeep from the garage floor.

I'll post pictures of the real deal once I get it back later this week.

A lift will look good on that rig! The 4-doors look better lifted. What front bumper is that?

Someone hand me a wad of tissue...

Man, that color combination is very well done. I like it, a lot. Looks great!

The only thing I would change are the seals on the driver door, they're starting to gap on the second picture. You might get your first leak. Okay.. okay.. just giving you a hard time about the open door. It distracts from the Jeep! (yep.. tough crowd...)
