LIFT: 3.5" AEV DualSport SC
SHOCKS: Bilstein
TIRES/WHEELS: Duratrac 315/70R17, stock Rubi Wheels painted with Duplicolor Graphite

Likes: Rides great, better than stock. The kit is extremely complete and obviously well thought out. This kit has lots of relocation components, which is a big benefit. The extras are nice too, including the AEV ProCal and the Jack Stand. Both have come in handy.

Dis-Likes: Not much to complain about. For the price, it's an impressive kit with a great ride. 3.5" seemed like it may have been too much for the tires I got, but it's grown on me. The install time is lengthy, but well worth it!

Would You Recommend: Absolutely! Don't hesitate on this one. It is pricey, but I think worth the money.

SHOCKS: Stock
TIRES/WHEELS: Moto Metal M909s, Nitto Terra Grappler P285R70/17's

Likes: Love the look, wide stance, tires perfect in heavy rain this weekend. Wheeled it some this weekend (not to aggressive till the lift and some underarmour!) and the tires did not break or slide!

Dis-Likes: At full right wheel displacement, the left tire, outer edge of the tread rubs on the lower corner of the air dam. This will be corrected with just the most modest of lifts (coming to a Jeep near me soon!), but for now it does rub.

3.5 rough Country

Ok.. I put a 3.5 Rough Country Lift on. I can't remark on the off road ability due to is only been on for a few days. It rides great and while installing the kit I think it will flex very well. IMHO . I will have a Trip to the Hills of WV. Soon and will climb some gas lines and track some mud holes there. I do a lot of 4-wheeling in that area so I will be able to get a good understanding of what the lift will do. i put a Teraflex 2" leveling kit on in March of this year just to try to level the Rubi. out some. i think the bumper and winch was a little to much for the stock suspension. Even with 33"s on I did some rubbing up front on some off canter tracks while disconnected. I tried to show before and after pics of me standing by the Rubi. I hope this helps someone out there that is looking at the new RC 3.5 with the new shocks. So far Nice ride and good handling, good fit, took about 6 hours to complete however I also installed the RC double steering stabilizer at the same time. I think I could do it faster if I read the instructions the day or night before I started instead of after I started. LOL no I am not kidding, read first, however I am a male, so what else would you expect. LOL

SHOCKS:

SYE/CVD:
Stock
TIRES/WHEELS:
32" GY Duratrac 10-plys, Stock wheels (bedlined)

Likes:
Gives it the perfect stance, shocks really firm up the ride, but smooths out the little imperfections in the road.

Dis-Likes:
While the shocks stiffen it up, on sharp bumps, it does hit pretty hard, not for those who don't want a stiff ride. Course the 10-ply GYs probably don't help much on that either.

Would You Recommend:

Here it is with stock shocks and extensions that came with the RC kit. I bent the RR shock, I think I bottomed it out.

Love all the jeeps. You guys spent a lot of time puttin your toys together..way to go.

Well, I started with a Tera Flex 2.5" BB lift and wheel spacers. Then I went to Rock Krawler 3.5" Mid arm Flex system 3 link in rear Pro Aluminum, ultimate steering kit w/ hydro assist, PSC filtered reservoir & pump, 40" tires with standard wheels, Elka Racing 11" remote reservoir coil overs in the front, w/ spring wedges in the rear; bolt on exhaust (Cooltech).

Now I'm runny a Rock Krawler 3.5" Long arm 3link front/rear Pro Alum. New Hydro bracket, extended spring perches in the rear w/ spring retainers, Rock Krawler Alum. Bodied 14" Coil Overs in the front w/ the upper mounts raised 2" to keep the same ride height, Spyder Lock wheels w/ 40" Pro Comp Xterrain Tires, Tannon Custom driveshafts, MasterCraft "Rubicon" Bucket custom seats in front, Lexan hood, Custom exhaust; Poison Spyder front/rear BFH bumpers/Brawler Rockers(not installed yet), Alum Fenders (not installed yet), Rear Corner Armor w/ LED's(not installed yet). and lots more coming this winter.

I love the lift. Both mid arm and long arm. The long arm rides incredibly well. Much more articulation, better control over the control arm swing. You can't beat the warranty that comes from Rock Krawler (life time warranty). I was in a wreck not to long ago. RK replaced everything under warranty including a bent upper coil over mount. I love it. I wouldn't have anything else unless I built my own custom suspension. Their Coil overs are really nice. Soak up the drops and highway driving really nice. You can add remote reservoirs to them down the road if you want. The geometry is really amazing with this system. Adj. control arms/track bars/drag link, is definitely a priority when lifting a jeep. No matter what the tire size. The flex joints on these arms are completely rebuildable. I've seen issues with other brands, but these are with out a doubt the baddest I've come across.

I have Bilstein 5150's shocks in the rear. I'm not a fan of this model shock. They rust, one shock has leaked all the fluid out...or some of it, they are stiff. I'd rather have 5100's. They ride wayyy better on and off road.

No Driveline mods
aFe y-pipe to clear factory exhaust from driveshaft.

Tires: 35x12.50x17 BFG Km2's

Likes: Rides pretty close to stock. Really stout control arms. Complete kit included coils, upper and lower superflex arms, front adj trackbar, rear trackbar bracket, bumpstop extensions, front and rear extended brake lines, swaybar links and disconnects for front. I didn't use the swaybar disconnects in the front. I just swapped the stock rear linkages to the front. Front brake lines were not needed either.

OME 2.5" Long Travel HD lift. Got 3.5"

I just put on an OME (Old Man Emu) lift. OME Shocks and Coils, JKS sway bar links(front and rear) Front and Rear JKS adjustable track bars. JKS rear spring retainers. Front and rear brake line extension. This rides better than the stock Rubicon suspension. I'd highly recommend it. The nitrocharger shocks are the bomb! I purchased the entire package from Northridge 4x4 and got a very good deal!.

Took it out and flexed it....no rubbing with the 35's!

3.5" AEV Premium Lift
35" BFG tires
Bilstein shocks
Likes: came with the JK 231 package so I didn't have to do the wrench bendin' myself; drives better than stock. It's quiet and easy to drive long distances despite the lift and tire size. I've put 3,800 miles on my Jeep so far and plan to drive it cross-country.
Dislikes: The steering seems to pull left a bit when it's cold. AEV claims that it's the steering stabilizer and that pull will quit once the stabilizer breaks in. Seems to stop pulling once I drive it around a bit so maybe that makes sense!

AEV 3.5" Dualsport SC Lift
Bilstein Shocks
Mamba M2 18x9" rims
Nitto Trail Grappler 295/75/18 (35"x12")


Excellent lift. Very easy to install. Folks at AEV incredibly helpful with any questions.
Tires are the best I have ever had. Almost as quiet as stock tires on the highway. That can't be said for most mud tires.
RIPP Supercharger coming soon!!!

Would absolutely recommend these items to anyone.

2012 2-door Rubicon

AEV 2" spacer lift w/shock extensions
Goodyear Wrangler Dura-tracs 33x12.5-15
MB Razors 15x8" wheels, 3.75" B/S

Great starter lift, factory ride maintained.
Brake lines a little snug after adding lift/tires so added a extension bracket in rear, front brake lines routed on lower spring perch (2011/2012 model years) which limits slack, kit instructions say to eliminate factory brake line brackets and zip tie lines to shock, not good idea IMHO, so I left stock for now but will evaluate with flex.
Like others, I'll eventually move up to 35's and new coils/shocks, either AEV or OME. No complaints for now.

I've only been running the lift, Tire, & Wheel Package for a week, but I Love it. Has just the right ride height, accommodates the 35" tires and rides very smooth, NO wobbling or flighty feeling. I didn't have to do any driveline or exhaust modifications to fit this on a 2012. At full front suspension drop the driveline comes close to rubbing but does not hit.

None whatsoever.

Looks like AEV has been busy selling the 3.5" Dual sport SC lifts. I am very happy with the ride and quality of the components.

2011 JK Sahara
1.75" Rubi Express Coil Spacers
2" Rubi Express Monotube Shocks
Stock Sahara Tires and Wheels

Likes:
Really like the ride quality and additional height. Havent taken it off road yet (just put it on today) but the on road ride is very smooth. I imagine trail riding will be a blast.

Dislikes:
Have to drill to install front right bump stop extension. Also, not sure if it is the way the guys did the installation, but my current sway bars were rubbing very hard against the control arm in the front right. Im going to get it looked at tomorrow at another spot. Also, brake lines are too short, although clearly that will be a problem regardless of lift type--will have more on it tomorrow

Likes: Really happy with what it did for my 2011 JKU Rubicon. Drives better than stock with great on-road handling even at speed. I also have Rugged Ridge XHD (heavy) bumpers in front and back and i'm not getting any sag.

Dis-Likes: none

Would You Recommend: yes, Teraflex is the way to go!

just as good as the day it was installed...

Words of advise would be to do the lift, hold off on the extras like adj. track bars and control arms, and see how you like it. The kit comes with everything you need. Then make secondary decisions after you drive it, if you want to change the performance/handling, because none of those things are needed, but some chose to add them (like me).
