    Regarding a product launch date, the AEV guys told us at SEMA that they expect the first Gladiator parts to be released early 2020.

    Can't wait for the 411 on the lift.

    That bumper though... :like:

    Must must must have a Gladiator Rubicon Diesel with AEV accoutrements.


    That snorkel is fugly (IMHO).

    I like the bumper (convertible to a stubby), but that guard would totally block the trail cam.

    Wonder if the tire carrier could be mounted sideways to not lose all rearward visibility.

    I also wonder about that guard, but for cooling more than trail cam.

    While I can piece it together myself, I’m hoping they AEV releases a mopar-2.0-like lift with a track bar and the geometry correction brackets in lieu of new LCAs. I had their 4.5” lift and 37s on a JKU and loved the way it drove.

    There's an entire pickup bed worth of space, where should we put the second spare, Bob?

    How about right behind the driver so he can't see anything and can't safely change lanes!

    Perfect!

    Yeah, no. I just came from a JK with the AEV gas tank and a 37” spare. On my JT, I can finally use my rear view mirror. I’m not going back!

    I think it’s modular by design.... should be possible for them to make a “low” hoop.

    I actually like AEV's snorkel with the pre-filter. I'm just wondering when they will start selling it. They showed it off for the JL a year ago and as far as I can tell you still can't buy it.

    Love the tire carrier option but they made it too tall. I dont think it will work with any rack.

    Is it me or does it look like the front passenger door won't open all the way now due to the snorkel?
