The anticipation for the jeep is def worse! I custom ordered mine too & it felt like an eternity. Having these awesome tires & AEV equipment laying around is a very close 2nd! This Commando Green has always been my favorite color, I'm very lucky to be where I was financially when they released it in 2013.

Yeah, the color of our Jeep is growing on me, but my wife and I really like the Commando Green. It is what it is, I'm still pretty excited. Your Jeep is going to be really cool with that set up.

Amp'd. We went through quite the decision making process. We started out wanting a Copperhead "Willy's Wheeler". We thought that would be really cool, but it is based off of a sport package and you can't get navigation with that, which I kind of wanted. We also were thinking we would keep this jeep a long time and I thought we might regret not getting a Rubicon. When we decided to go with a Rubicon, it wasn't offered in Copperhead. I did some checking and found out you can get it, it just isn't on the website. About that time my wife decided she really liked the X. We decided to go for that and found out that is the one vehicle you truly can't get in Copperhead. That is when my wife took a liking to Amp'd. I couldn't decide as it looks so different in different pictures depending on the light. We took a hunting trip to Texas in January and on the way home we saw an Amp'd X on a lot in Wyoming. That sealed the deal for my wife. But after saying all that I will say Jeep's color choices are weird. They basically have two shades of black or very dark, two greys, a white and no orange or green (which we really wanted). My wife wanted something unique and we area getting that. We are really excited. But that was our $10,000 path that started as a Copperhead Willy's Wheeler and ended up with an Amp'd Rubicon X. No for accessorizing.....

Thanks, we're excited. I'm going to order a hoop and hopefully a winch before it gets here. You can sure get a lot of ideas and information here. It is pretty cool.

Thanks! I got the nuts at the local ranch hand store. (Ranchhand.com) I think for a full set I paid $50.

Alright guys, I want to do a quick recap of all the mods in order that I've done to the jeep since I got her back in Dec 2012 with a few comments next to each before I release the pics and reviews of the lift. Btw I still haven't seen it yet myself, I tom the next two days off work just to be on standby for the call.

This was the first pic I ever got of it when my sales guy texted it to me.

It didn't take me long to pick her up!

First mod I did was in honor of a fallen comrade.

Next mod were the Mopar taillight guards. Hate the look without them. Easiest mod ever & makes a huge difference IMHO.

Had to get her stuck at least once!

Next was the best top bikini top with dust cover & wind shield. Great for the summer!

Next was the Smittybilt tailgate kit. I've had this for a almost a year & no problems with it yet. Make sure you have the right tools & do the proper planning before you drill. Great for camping & recovery gear.

This first pic was all it took for a good enough excuse for me to "need" a new bumper. I knew I would be eventually be putting an AEV lift on so I decided to stick with the rest of there products. This is a AEV JK Premium front bumper with Rigid Industry LED fog lights. Sitting in the middle is a new Warn Zeon 8 w/ 100ft cable.

When I got the ding in my bumper my buddy went through the same ditch & did the same thing. I was able to talk him into ordering one with me to split shipping haha .

Just got this pic from the shop. They called to say that there's a front sag & recommended me add a 3/4" spacer as well as an adapter I'll need for the spare to fit.

Looks damn sexy tho!

Looks awesome with those wheels and the Commando Green! Let us know how you like the AEV lift. I'm looking at the 2.5 eventually as well.

Thank you for your service!!!

seems strange on the front end sag normally with aev springs they do not do that even with bumper and winch. I think maybe they left the stock spacers out or something.

I agree, however the spare is not on yet to bring it down in the back. The back is sitting at 3" & the front 2.5" V3 is very professional, I don't see them accidentally forgetting to leave the stock spacers in.
