This is the AEV 2.5 DualSport XT. I still need to measure, but it got quite a bit more than 2.5 as most coil lifts do. Although, I still don't have the heavy bumpers on it yet.

THey are the ballistic Jester wheels, and they come with red inserts. I had the shop paint the inserts for me to match my powder coated springs and they also painted my grille inserts the same color.

Right now the lift is just the TF Perf. Leveling Kit (coils not spacers). Tires are 285/70 17 - they come in just under 33 at 32.8 inches and are about 12.2 inches wide. Wheels are 17x8.5...don't remember the offset but whoever you order from can help with that anyway. Hope this helps!

Durango, here are some nights pics. Sorry if they seem dim, having a black jku in pitch black with LEDS isn't an easy pic. When driving behind it lights up really well.

You will get the relocation plate which is ore drilled with the holes needed to mount to the back door and then 4 holes to mount your license plate and the ORO lite. The ORO lot has 3 LED third brake lights, 3 LED license plate lights.

This has been debates thoroughly and it comes down to how strict your area is, but it is illegal to take away a third brake light if it originally came with the car. I honestly think you want that on your wrangler anyways.

I'll take some pics tonight when it gets dark to show you the LEDS. Where I live in North Ga, we have some bad drivers who don't fully look when behind you. So I put some rubber grommet spacers to create a 1.5" back spacing and put in 2 strips of 12" red LED lights to help illuminate when I stop! They are tucked inward and waterproof and only give a faint red glow so I don't attract the cops. I did it for the sake of safety and when my kiddos are in the car.

I do still have a spare, but since the jku is my daily driver I wanted to get rid of the weight. It shed about 160 pounds and gave me about 2 more MPG. It also creates a new look for the wrangler and drops a lot of weight for the tailgate.

Here's a comparison pic for you of before and after (minus cleaning the back)
