Just posted this to the 2013 Commando thread but figured I would add here too!

Just had the AEV 2.5 inch lift with geometry correction brackets installed on my JKU this week. I couldn't be more happy with how it turned out. It rides much better than stock in corners as well as during hard braking. Overall I gained 3.5 inches up front and 3 inches in the rear to level it out. Rolling with the rubi take offs for now- looking to go to a 34 inch tire soon - 285/75/17. I debated whether I should do the lift without doing the new wheels and tires at the same time and I am glad I went ahead and just did the lift. It doesn't look bad at all in person. If you're in the same boat, don't hesitate, just do it and you won't be disappointed- the stock rubi tires look just fine for temporary purposes. Here are some pics right after it was finished. You can see the before and after in the second attachment.

Yes, it had 0 miles on it when the motor swap was done. My dealership had the Jeep drop shipped directly from the assembly line to AEV, where the 6.4 Hemi and suspension were installed, then the Jeep was shipped directly to me.

I plan on using the Jeep for back country exploring. I went exploring yesterday with a friend that is the editor of 4-wheel drive & sport utility magazine. We explored some basic Jeep roads, and took some pictures at the top of a 10,000 foot elevation peak. He is going to put some pictures on the magazine's web site tomorrow, and plans on putting the Jeep in his magazine once I get the rest of the mods done (winch, on board air, etc.)

Do you have anymore pics from the front and from the side?

I cant decide on the ACE stinger or standard bumper.

The stinger looks pretty good in your pic here, but I cant tell how far it sticks out.

Yea 35 is probably the biggest you can go with the stock flares.

I just changed out my stock flares for bushwackers on Sunday. Adding ace rock rails this week and a stubby bumper. Pics by the end of the week!

I rubbed bad off road with 35s before the lift went on. It was fine on road though.

Just finished installing the ACE rock rails and bestop stubby bumper.
The bumper was a PITA (well actually taking off the stock bumper was a PITA)
The ACE rails were nice and easy though!

Also I put mopar slush mats in....they are NICE looking
I took a bunch of pics but I'm too beat to upload them right now. They are also from night time with garage lighting, so I'll take some better ones tomorrow in the daylight.

I love what I'm seeing in this thread! Makes me want to snap up a '13 Commando while I can instead of waiting to see the '14 colors.

So 2 weeks ago I bought this bone stock at the dealership. As of right now I think I'm about done....the only other big thing I'm going to do is a rear bumper/tire carrier, but that'll have to wait until my bank account refills
Oh and my skinny pedals door hangers shipped today!

The mopar slush mats are
