    I'm not going to tell you what to do or what lift to buy. But aev is over priced for what you get. You can get a mid arm for about the same price. Don't get me wrong. I'm all for quality but with aev your paying for name alone. I'm not one of these people who say you should buy what I bought. But I have done my research. I suggest for you to do some and if you still want aev go for it.

    There are a bunch of great brands to choose from. I compared AEV with Teraflex when I was shopping for a kit.

    The AEV 2.5 is $900. A TF 2.5 is $770.

    At first the TF kit looks cheaper, but if you replace the TF 9550 shocks with Bilstein 5100s, the TF kit comes to $848.

    The AEV kit also comes with a rear track bar. Add that to the TF kit with Bilsteins and you now have between $1000 and $1100 for a TF kit with the same part set as the $900 AEV kit.

    One of these kits might be better than the other. I haven't tried both so can't say. But as far as money goes, the AEV kit includes more for less money than a TF kit with a trackbar and the same shocks. I didn't compare prices this carefully with other brands, but there is no free lunch with any lift kit.

    I wouldn't let a 10% - 15% difference in price be the deciding factor though. A person needs the kit that looks like it will work best for the way the Jeep will get used.

    The one thing I know for sure is that I want a 2.5" suspension lift. I would like to here from those that experienced the same scenario (what brand to go with) as well as what they considered and what they ended up going with. Pics would also be great.

    Thanks

    I'm looking at a 2.5" lift as well, but really don't know what vendor to look at - for 2.5" is a track bar really needed? will replacing the control arms with longer ones really add more flex with a 2.5" lift? What are the major differences between Rock Krawler products versus AEV or TF?

    i have been running the aev 2.5 kit for a while now and it is fine, although i will be upgrading shortly. I think when people jump on the band wagon about the aev kits being overpriced they are truly uninformed. the 2.5 kit is right there with everyone else. the larger lifts may not follow suit though. when u get into the 3.5 and 4.5 kits the price is high and there are plenty of options and kits have different components. other aev products like bumpers, etc. are expensive. the 2.5 kit is a good kit and a fair price at $899. i think this kit is an exception to the high prices and lack of components found in other aev kits.

    to the op: AEV has strict pricing set on their stuff. you will NOT find deals on their kits. however, a vendor may be able to give you a deal on another product purchased in conjuction with the aev kit to make up for it , like some disco's or a front trackbar

    the kit is descent for the price...u are getting a kit for 900 bucks that works fine outta the box. nothing else needed.
