Welcome to the forum,

I'm really interested about this lift and most probably I will got for it.

Questions:
  • Which coil rating did you take? Heavy duty or medium
  • How is the ride after the lift?
  • Did it add exactly 2" in both ends?
  • Any rubbing issues?
  • How much you paid for it?
Somehow the new rims look smaller than 17" !!

I went with the Heavy coils based on what I read on this web site.
The ride is great. I expected the stiffer coils to make the ride quite harsh but it was alot better than I expected.
I'm sorry I did not measure before I put the lift on but the clearance is great on these larger tires.
Yes a little rubbing when I turn lock to lock.

That looks like a good kit to have. Maybe I will just go that route...

I liked that this kit did not have spacers and the new longer struts did add alot of cost to the overall price. But I believe it will be worth it in the long run.

That looks good, no stress on the ball joint. Might go that way, but I'm still leaning toward the Superlift.

What size tires are you running? They look like 265s.

I believe he said he has the 255/75R17 BFG MT that come on the stock Rubicons.

The reason it cost so much is because they arnt using little spacers to achieve the lift. Four new lifted coils, two front struts and two rear shocks arnt cheap.

Were you able to install the TPS in the AEV rims?

I assume you did not need wheel spacers with those rims?

The AEV Wheels BS is 5.3 which is roughly equivalent to a 1 inch wheel spacer. It makes it perfect it you ask me, i think normal 1.5 inch wheel spacers are a little to much IMO. I have really been looking into the AEV Beadlocks but it says that they are backordered.
