Well, it took a week for all this stuff to come in and for me to put it on. Very happy with the job Discount Tire, and Quadratec does. All my stuff came in a few short days.

Removed the Tera Flex leveling kit and install the AEV lift. Strait forward, and for me about a 5 hour job. I also did the geo control arm brackets.

This morning the new wheels and tires came UPS. Ordered on Wed, got them today. WOW that fast...

I broke down one side and installed my TPMS, air them back up and put them on..

Here's the result..

Old jeep...





NEW JEEP!!!!

I like it, nice job looks good. How much lift difference is there between the leveling kit and the AEV kit? I assume its the 2.5 kit.

Soooooo, what-cha planning on doing with that leveling kit you just removed? I may be interested in taking it off your hands.

Looks great! That's the same setup I've decided on.

I'm worried about clearance for a front diff cover (probably Riddler) using the stock track bar. Does it look like the lift moves it enough?

The guy who bought the wheels bought the leveling kit. Sorry..
Looks great.

What is the back spacing on your wheels?
The wheels are 9" wide with a -12 off set.

I just finished it up, and had to leave for work. Only took it around the block so a road test is in order.


I will post up this weekend on the ride.

After a hundred or so miles I have to say.. WOW, my Jeep drives better than in stock trim. Before with the leveling kit it was a bit twitchie, and a handful on rough, uneven roads. I was a bit worried about the shocks being to stiff, but so far I'm digging it.

I am very happy with the results of my new lift, and wheels and tires.

Thanks everyone for the advice.. All is good..

What tires were you running before? Looks great, enjoy!
I had 285-70-17 Nitto Terra Grapplers.. New shoes are G Y Dura Trac's 315-70-70.

I'm very happy with the new rubber, and they are very quiet.

It was very tough, it took several months for Omar the wheel maker to custom forge those 70 inchers... :rofl:

Thanks for the proof read...
