Looks awesome Rubiwho! I know I have talked to you about the AEV lift before on another thread, but are you still happy with the 3.5 lift with the 37's or do you wish you had gone with the 4.5"?

Thanks, I am happy but my next lift will be the 3.5 Metalcloak with 6 pack shocks or a coil over kit. I love the AEV 3.5 I just can't get the 4.5 in my garage, only reason I went 3.5". I cut the fenders and all is good with the clearance. I want to add the control arms now, which AEV doesn't have, so I have to spend another $1000 for those. I still think AEV is great, I'm just starting to push my jeep harder so I want arms that will hold up better than stock. So AEV lift + control arms = Metalckoak. To answer your question, yes, I would still recommend AEV.

I'll take one tomorrow and get it up, the only issue is I have cut my fenders so the will appear to stick out more. Most aftermarket wheels you'll find have 4.5" of back spacing and will stick out more than these. These wheels have 4.63" so they will sit closer in and tighter inside the wheel well. Smaller or less the back spacing size/ number the further out they will stick. This is the best pick I have before the fenders were cut.

Sits about 6 1/2ft (78 inches +/- a half inch) with the soft top. Hard top is about an inch lower.

The only update is that I sold it. I'll have another build soon. I typically do one a year. I'll wait till I can order a 2016.
