AEV 2.5" Lift
 
I'm thinking of ordering a AEV 2.5" DualSport XT Suspension System with Bilstein Shocks, AEV Geometry Correction Front Control Arm Brackets and
AEV ProCal Module. Right now I have Pro Comp 7069 wheels with stock 32" BFG MUD/Terrains. Will this perform well and look good til I replace my tires with 33", 34" or 35"? My tires only have 3k on them. Should I just wait a year till I need new tires?

I live right down the road from AEV's R&D facility so I see plenty of the AEV equiped wranglers running around and you need at least 33's with the 2.5" lift, a friend has a MW3 rubi with the aev 2.5" lift and he has 33's which he put on as soon as he did the lift because he thought the stock rubi rubber was too small and made it look funny and a already he is going 35" because he thinks it looks funny. He said the lift actually gave him around 3" or so of lift. yours might look better tho because you probably have less backspacing with your rims. He was running stock rims at first before getting the AEV rims.

Thanks for the info! Based on that I will wait till these wheels run their course then get 34 or 35's.
