    Yeah, with nothing more than some MCE Flares and decent wheels my last JKU could flex on 35’s. We live in privileged times...

    Yeah I can see that not being fugly, but it is def not as sweet looking as the Rugged Ridge one. This looks a bit bloated and not sleek... I am still deciding on the snorkel for my LE and AEV, ARB Safari and Mopar are all similar - for me Rugged Ridge is the sleekest design so far...

    Their kit is my front runner for several reasons. Bilstein makes some of the best, longest lasting suspension on the market, they have proven reliability and history for many more years than the competition. The AEV guys are going a special extra rust resistant coating which will add to that reliability. The 8100 series shocks perform amazing on Tacomas.... these will probably out perform any 2.5" kit on the market (because they're a little bigger at just over 2.6"). But mostly, because AEV dials their stuff in to a super high level, their spring rates and custom valving are going to be great. They're also designed for hauling and running heavily loaded, which I plan to be. And adjustability is key to be able to daily it, and get it into expedition mode.

    I guess I'm just a believer! I just really like their engineering and everything the company designs. Stoked to see the price point, I bet its going to be high, but a great value.

    Looks like it will open completely.

    AEV seems to make great looking accessories. They make bumpers that are smooth, with rounded edges, and looks good with the vehicles lines. (Unlike others that make flat steel, bend, tack or bolt together, and look idiotic. Like everyone else’s cheap bumpers, racks, light bars...)
