macaw1us I was told by M/C that there is a 5 week back log for the fenders, what have you been told about delivery?

Thanks for the compliments. It's going to look different soon with MCE flat fenders and probably 37" KM2 or STT or MTZ's shortly after. Probably KM2's just based on weight savings alone.

ERAUGrad04 Great looking build and I can assure you that you will not be disappointed with the JWs! I have been running them for about a month now and I always get excited when I get to drive at night!

If I swap lights I think JW's would be the ones to go with. I doubt I will since I hardly drive after dark and I have Rigids for those dark roads.

DallasJKU Just ordered MCE flat fenders. I will see how they look with my 315 Duratracs and if they look way too small then 37" KM2's will be ordered. Pics next weekend probably.

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.
