Pennsylvania has a yearly tax, too, I believe.....or at least they used to? We pay 6% when we purchase vehicles in Michigan, but then we can claim that on our taxes....we have 3 vehicles that we'll be able to claim taxes on, all bought this year....1-7-13 my 2010 Challenger, 1-26-13 my husband's 200 & in May, my 2013 Wrangler

I can't decide which is better, to pay it up front or to shell out $360 a year in taxes on it like I did today.

BLK2012 we don't pay an ad-valorem tax, which I remember in the south as another way to fund themselves...

I guess it's not much different from a tax paid on water consumption, which was a sewer tax assuming 100% of the water you use goes into the public sewers, with no regard to drinking, lawn watering, etc.

Understood though, I have traded vehicles in for less than they're worth because of the tax off the top....and the ease of the transaction.

I'm surprised the government hasn't changed those laws...both yours and ours...

getahemi Ya. 13% tax is serious money on new vehicles. At least they tax us on the difference between selling price and tade in value and not the full selling price of the new vehicle. Is that how it works where you live? Btw how much is your tax rate?

Well I paid $240 bucks for it when I had a hemi. It doesn't say hasahemi or it'sahemi or gotahemi. It says getahemi.

I didn't get any particular "package" like the JK 250 or JK 350. I wanted to use different bumpers, so I just got the 3.5" lift with the upgraded reservoir shocks, AEV wheels, 35" tires, and the 6.4 Hemi. I'm planning on using an Expedition One rear bumper that is made out of aluminum, and a Teraflex tailgate hinge and tire carrier. And I'll use either an Expedition One Core front bumper, or an LOD mid-width front bumper. An interesting point about the tires - I had not wanted to use BFG KM2s, and had requested either Toyo Open Country MTs or Goodyear MTR/Ks. AEV was real pushy about the KM2s, and didn't want to do the project without them; so I said fine, use the KM2s. Well, it turned out that by the time the build was ready for tires, BFG had a nationwide backorder on 35" KM2s with no projected production date. AEV has 500 35" BFGs on backorder, and can't get them. When AEV sent me the pictures of my Jeep I was pleasantly surprised to see the Goodyear MTR/Ks on it.
I can't wait to see it finished. You really are getting a custom vehicle. Nice to see you are getting the tires you want too.

Did you get the jK 350 package also? I would have liked the JK 250 minus the hemi.

I think they are branded Fast but who knows. They are made in china. I just needed something cheap to put the tires on. I really don't like the 10a wheels but I better not say it to much on here. People are sensitive.

I just walk in, they give me the keys and make sure I know how to work the radio controls, and I get the Jeep.



Here are a few pictures that AEV took during the build process.

Well I wish my driveway looked like that. I tried to get my wife to trade her bmw in on the 10a and keep the sport but that didn't work.

I did pretty much the same thing as you. I bought a two door in November, then bought a four door in March. The four door has a Hemi.

The one and only picture I have of the two door


The four door, parked at AEV's shop.

Well I like your white one more too!
07-07-2013 01:34 PM
getahemi Thanks guys.

I actually sold wheels back to the dealer for 1500 bucks. I thought that was decent for wheels that are too narrow and the wrong offset for wider tires. I also don't find them attractive but that is just IMHO. The tires are also too small and not what I would buy as far as tread pattern. Those are my reasons for letting the set go.

I will admit i dont even like the aftermarket wheels that much but I bought them for the Sport. I'm putting pintlers on it anyway so these are just temporary.
