After getting them both on and then seeing the V's I knew they weren't the right solution for me. I thought I would think the smoked appearance was cool, but it took away from the front of the Jeep. Wasn't happy at all with the look or the light output except when on high beams so I sold them yesterday.

DallasJKU Just ordered a set of Trucklites. They will be here Thursday. I was tired of the crappy stock headlights.

I was going to run the 3.5" MetalCloak lift, but decided my AEV 2.5" was plenty for my needs. If I go to 37's I will just run flat fenders to gain the extra clearance needed. I didn't want all the issues that can pop up with running more lift. I am not a rock crawler so I didn't feel the need to go with CA's. The AEV brackets work fine for me.

Thanks man. I can't freaking wait. Looking at that lift and tires in the garage is starting to irritate me. Hopefully I will get it all done this weekend!

Your Jeeps gonna look sweet with those fenders and 37's

The AEV rides and handles well. It's a little stiff but if the Jeep has bumpers and other weight I think it will ride better. It's a pretty basic lift and I liked it for the most part. I just wanted a little more lift and wanted everything to be replaced in the suspension with the ability to fine tune it. That's why I went with the MetalCloak. I don't know if the DT's will get 50K but they are a great tire. They handle perfect in the rain and are probably the quietest aggressive tire on the market. They look great too.

I will still check the AEV forum out to help others. 37's are definitely in the plans. I just feel the MC lift will be better for me than my AEV was. I just like the idea of being able to dial in my Jeep based on how it is setup with weight at this point.

DallasJKU I just placed my order for a 3.5" MC Game Changer ARB to replace my 2.5" AEV.

DallasJKU Made two more mods today. I added the Trek Armor front seat covers since I really liked how the rears worked out. I also added Safari Straps extended cage to protect my dog.

DallasJKU Added a 10" Rigid SR to my hood. I will test out the light after work tonight.

DallasJKU Just added the Fox ATS. Still trying to play with stiffness, but I can say it does help in high wind situations especially when set to stiff and it's easy to adjust.

DallasJKU Purchased the Fox ATS and Synergy relocation bracket. I will be installing next week since I didn't want to lose my 9/16 TB bolt and the bracket won't be here until Tuesday. I'm sure it would be fine replacing the 9/16 bolt, but I replaced all my TB and CA bolts for a reason so I would like to keep them.

DallasJKU Sold my HT. Was tired of it and not being able to take off unless I knew weather. Soft top is louder, but I will get used to it I'm sure. Like the looks of HT better, but too much hassle for me.

DallasJKU Just installed my Tuffy Center Console Insert. I really just wanted something hidden and easy to access that I could store cash, CC's, DL, iPod and iPhone. It should be pretty secure although I am only using the 4 stock T-20 bolts right now. For the smash and grab type of thieves it will be fine. I think I will drill the the two optional holes at some point, but my Jeep is never really in a situation that any thief would have enough time to get what they want.
